    YellowSquare Florence was amazing! It was my traveling partner and I’s first experience in a hostel and we absolutely loved it. Everyone was so friendly, the rooms were very clean, and we met so many amazing people at the bar and rooftop pool! I highly recommend spending some time by the bar if you’re looking to meet some really cool people.

    Didn't want to leave! Absolutely gorgeous hostel with incredibly friendly staff! There were so many free events with the hostel that you could join in - my favourite was the tote bag painting!! The roof pool was absolutely perfect... I couldn't name a single thing that I would improve - I had the best time and can't believe how little I paid for such an amazing time! I can't wait to come back :))

    Great place to stay. The staff where so nice. The atmosphere was great they had activities on every night. The roof top pool really made the place even better Only negative is that the shower cubicle and toilet cubicle are next to each other and water floods the toilet floor then becomes very dirty throughout the day.

    Really nice hostel, very clean and very friendly staff. They organised events every night which was cool and had a bar that stayed open late. As a tall person, I had the usual problem where the bed wasn't quite long enough, but that seems to be inevitable when getting a single bed

    Such a cool hostel in Florence! The rooms were nice size and very modern. The staff were helpful but we were a bit surprised when they charged €1 for a single tea packet. Facilities were very clean and in great condition. Highlight of our stay was the rooftop pool, but we were surprised that there were no handrails on either side of the pool by the stairs. Location is good walking distance from the town.
