    This was one of the NICEST hostels I have ever been to!! The rooms are so clean, comfortable, amenities are great, and the bathrooms and showers are available for each room in the mixed 5-bed suites. The location is fabulous and convenient, and so worth the price. Staff is friendly. The terrace is beautiful. Pool and poolside bar are great, and they have an in-house bar/restaurant for socializing. I was so impressed and pleased with my stay at PLUS Florence.

    Stayed in the 4 bed ensuite with a friend and it was great! The room is super spacious and it was super clean. The rooftop terrace and pool are really what make this hostel exceptional though. Both features were great when you were just looking to relax. My one critique would be that the particular bed I was sleeping in was insanely creaky, and I could tell that I was accidentally waking my roommates when I would move in it. So my apologies to them! I would 100% stay here again though.

    I was very pleased with my stay. The security was very helpful when it came to luggage storage, and in helping the staff/travelers around the hostel, etc. Check-in and check-out were very easy even when the line seemed long. The rooms were the nicest I have seen in a hostel, and we had no issues with any of the other resident in terms of noise. The terrace was my favorite as it’s very relaxing with a great view of the city. The bar area was awesome, and always fun and chill. Overall great time!!

    Huge hostel so busy check in but they had a great system so we didn’t have to wait too long. Very big and spacious rooms, a locker each. Towels, soap, shampoo provided were nice. Pool was small but cool outdoor area and was still nice to cool off in. Lacking of real cooking facilities (only had a microwave) but did have a fridge. Need the key card to activate lights and air con which could be a pain if not in a group but worked fine for us.

    The hostel was very safe and in a good location. It’s was more a hotel vibe so backpackers should consider that. There was a large (20-30) person group that took over the pool area, which is pretty small. The free towel was nice to be included.

    The place is an hotel where you actually stay with people you don't know more than an actual hostel, so the facilities overall are amazing and the price higher than usual but it is worth. Atmposphere was quite good, i was alone and i found a lot of company but in this situation i always think that is also a matter of luck even if the bar near the pool is quite nice to let people know each others. Good position as well.

    Huge hostel- more of a hotel experience. Having a pool and bar was great, staff was okay but stretched pretty thin with how many travelers were there. Didn’t like that in order for any lights/chargers to work in the room you had to insert your key. Breakfast was good but not really worth the price.

    The facilities at PLUS Florence for partying are unmatched with their tiki bar and pool area; however, I was never able to use them as they closed very early for a bar (~11pm), nor see it through a window because of a power trip by some security. In addition, staff scolded us for watching the NBA finals in the vending machine room late at night. The atmosphere wasn’t what I expected from the hostel I was looking forward to the most, and the bedrooms/bathrooms weren’t very clean, but liveable.

    The female dorms were quite clean but some of the sheets had stains. Not an ideal hostel for solo travellers. Many large groups (school groups etc.), there is a nice pool and bar but still not much of an atmosphere making it hard to meet people. Location is quite central but the staff do not give you any information or tips on where to go on arrival. Good for a couple of nights accomodation.

    I was extremely disappointed in this hostel, especially because of its positive ratings. I wouldn't recommend this hostel ESPECIALLY to solo backpackers because the atmosphere is disconnected, hotel-like and it was very difficult to meet people, yet it didn't have the conveniences of a hotel. The room I was in had no outlets by the beds whatsoever, which was extremely inconvenient and the air conditioning barely worked. Plus, the security guards were rude and demanding. Not a good experience.

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.
