We like that PLUS Florence offers so many onsite facilities to guests, including a swimming pool, restaurant and a bar that guests have praised for being 'lively and colourful'. This hostel is located in the northern part of central Florence, near Santa Maria Novella train station and a short walk from the rest of the city. Hostelworld travellers have frequently said they appreciate the 'incredibly helpful and friendly' staff.

Property Description

Welcome to your home away from home in Florence!

Overview

All the friendliness of a hostel with the facilities of a hotel – that's what you'll find at PLUS Hostel Florence. We've even got indoor and outdoor pools, an on-site spa with a sauna and Turkish bath! Snap a selfie against the skyline from the panoramic terrace before grabbing something to eat – and drink – at our café, restaurant or bar. Then get comfy in our cosy common room. If you're arriving late, with our 24-hour reception, there'll be someone to welcome you – even if you arrive in the middle of one of our DJ sets.

Location

We're in the north of Florence, less than 15 minutes' walk from the main train station – Firenze Santa Maria Novella – and round the corner from the Giardino della Fortezza park. It doesn't take long to wander into the city centre: the Mercato di San Lorenzo, famous for local food and crafts, is 10 minutes' walk away. If you're coming from Florence Airport, you'll get to us in 30 minutes. Take the LAM PO-FI bus and switch to the number 17 at Vivaldi.

Rooms and Dorms

Our mixed dorms and private rooms all have en-suite bathrooms and a TV. You'll find lovely crisp free linen and cosy fleece blankets – so you can get comfy – and a reading lamp. All our dorms have storage lockers to keep your bags safe. Love getting ready with the girls? Our female-only dorms come with treats like a welcome cosmetics pack, hairdryer and a vanity table.

Extras and activities

To make sure your stay's full of fun things to do, our team at the PLUS Tours travel desk will help you put together a schedule.

    I absolutely loved my stay at Plus Florence. The room was clean and tidy every day. All my belongings felt safe and there lockers available in my private room where I could store all my stuff. The hostel was a great place to just chill on the terrace or downstairs in the garden area where the pool and waterfall are after a long day of sight seeing or if you like me just fancied coming back to the hostel in the middle of the to both recharge your body and your iPhone. Loved everything about PLUS

    It was a great hostel overall. Our room was clean and there were plenty things to do at the hostel, such as swimming and ping-pong. The hostel was a nice 15 minutes walk to the inner-city, which wasn’t bad. Under normal circumstances (without COVID), this hostel would be even more social than it was when I stayed there, especially because of the bars and lounging areas at the hostel.

    I LOVE this place. It's got pool (s) , a terrace with hammocks and crazy views, a gym, a communal area, and a bar across the street. 14 minute walk to the Duomo and centre. I met some wonderful people there. I really like that they give towels in their dorms as well. The bathrooms are so neat and clean. It was absolutely wonderful

    I had an unfortunate incident with my male roommate Within the first few hours while staying at this hostel and I had to ask to switch rooms late at night, the staff were so accommodating and helpful, I so relieved I could have cried! The hostel is gorgeous it looks like a hotel with a pool!? Amazing!

    12 Sep 2020
    This place was amazing! The room gorgeous, the pool area very cool. It's was sad that their restaurant and bar weren't open but not their fault. My only only issues, some staff seem reluctant to help and make you feel like they are doing you a favour and the noise from the street was unbelievably loud. I would just request a different room. But would book her again!

    My stay at the hostel was great, I really enjoyed it. The location is perfect, next to the train station and close to the city center if you’re walking around like I did. The room are very spacious and nice. The terrasse and the pool are also very cool. I made some great meetings there. The staff was a little busy and not very present tho but except of that my stay there was perfect. I would come back and I really recommend it.

    Very Good

    28 Aug 2020
    It was clean and nice, however there was no real kitchen which surprised us. Also the Hostel had more of a cold hotel vibe than a familiar hostel (probably because it’s so big). Location is fine and they also have a wonderful rooftop terrace - the atmosphere there was really nice and you can get good views from the city

PLUS Florence says

I think the best aspects to our hostel are the extra facilities, such as the outdoor swimming pool in the summer, an indoor pool in the winter, a sauna in winter, and great bar and restaurant. How many backpackers can say they stayed in a hostel with a sauna and a pool? The hostel is ideally located, with The Academia only a short walk away. The Duomo is also really close to us. No visit to Florence is complete without visiting the Uffizi Gallery - remember to book early to avoid the queues. We also have theme nights such as toga parties in our Opera bar and restaurant. Don't miss out on our cheap drinks during happy hours! We have a mix of ages staying in the hostel, with most travellers in the 18 - 40 age range. I personally find that it is very easy for travellers to meet others and congregate in our hostel. Finally, we have some specific rooms for people with disabilities as well as elevators and ramps that are always available if needed.
