Hostelworld says

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!

PLUS Florence is a unique luxury hostel located right in the city centre and within walking distance to all the top sights, only a 10-minute walk from the main train station.

We set the bar for budget accommodation not only in Florence but in Europe as a whole. You'll easily notice the difference when looking at just some of the amazing facilities we offer: an onsite café, bar and restaurant, PLUS Tours travel desk, panoramic terrace, spacious dorms, a flat-screen TV in every room, PLUS Girls (female-only) rooms, Wi-Fi and more - and that's just the beginning: you can also relax at our outdoor pool and bar (summer only), or in the winter in our indoor pool, sauna and Turkish bath! Please be aware that the swimming cap is mandatory, if you do not have it you can buy it at Reception for €1,50.
Regarding the Covid situation, there is a limited number of people allowed in the pool area and in all the other common areas at the same time. We care about your safety and we sanitize with appropriate products all the rooms, blankets, common areas. We provide hand sanitizing gels and social distancing instructions, our staff is trained and can inform you about the restrictions from local authorities.

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.
