This was one of the best hostels we stayed in. It was really clean and the owner makes breakfast and serves coffee or tea to you in the morning. Breakfast is simple toast and cookies but it is nice. There's a nice terrace to drink wine on.

The hostel is in good location; about a 15 minute walk to the Duomo and shopping area. The staff are friendly and the hostel is extremely clean. I had a 4 bed dorm and it was spotless, with great air conditioning. The bathrooms are immaculate. Tea and Coffee (complete with biscuits and toast) are provided and the lady who serves... More

I booked this hostel and was saying AC, which I supposed was in all rooms because wasn't specified. I got a unbelievable hot room with 5 beds and ONE fan on the floor, which for sure couldn't run all the beds. I asked for one more and the guy in the reception (quite rude tho) said they didn't have another... More

We were offered an upgrade to a private room which consisted of 2 single beds in a nice sized room, with AC - happy to not see bunk beds for... More

My traveling partner and myself were two college aged girls and checked in to Emerald Fields and were offered an upgrade because of a cancellation to an apartment next door to the main hostel, described as "nicer, with a TV, terrace". Little did we know this was a bedroom in the hostel owner's apartment. Needless to say, this made us... More

This small hostel is in a busy area, pretty centrally situated. The double rooms are large, with simple furnishing, facing the calm backyard, no TV, not super clean, not super comfy, but o.k.. Bathrooms are new, though no toilett paper. I got the impression that it is more of a "party" hostel as there was quite some noise at night... More

After being in Italy for quite some time you start to take some Italian mannerisms with a pinch of salt. A great example is the service at emerald fields. We were travelling as a group of three and one of us had arrived early. The desk refused to check him in because he needed all 3 passports and seemed very... More

This is a decent hostel in a fairly good location - not far from the historic city centre of Florence and quite close to the train station. It is also quite close to a lot of restaurants, on the other end of Via Guelfa. It was clean, the rooms were comfortable and the staff were nice and helpful. Breakfast is... More

Staying in San Lorenzo

Neighborhood Profile
San Lorenzo
San Lorenzo’s lively merchants shout out from behind stalls with an array of products in one of the most traditional neighborhoods in Florence. Different ethnic groups join together in the large outdoor market of San Lorenzo and in the Central Market, a vast multi-floored building. Visitors are bound to fall in love with this area and in particular, with its variety of food, especially those focusing on Florentine dishes as well as international selections. Nobody leaves San Lorenzo without a shopping bag in hand or with an empty stomach.
