This place is in the best location, walking distance from anything you want to see! Got there too early then we were suppose to, we wanted to drop off our bags but they had no lockers in the lobby area. So that was unsettling that everyone who were staying there were going in and out of the room with our... More

If you're wanting a hostel with an excellent location and nothing else, you found it. Right next to the train station & pedestrian area, makes getting around very easy. However, every staff member I dealt with was rude and off-ish. I stayed here for 4 nights and not once was someone polite or helpful when I asked questions. I was... More

I decided to stay here from all the good reviews here, but I was so disappointed. My friend and I had booked a room for 2 persons, but the day we arrived here the staff told us to go to different building named "hotel Mia Cara" because our room was for 2 persons. So we moved to the hotel and... More

This hostel is in a great location but that's about the only thing going for it. The buildings and rooms are outdated, the stuff are rude and avoid talking to you at all costs (let alone giving you any info on the city), and there is no planned social activities for guests to interact. Wifi is good and breakfast is... More

This hostel was by far my favourite hostel whilst travelling Italy! Having booked three beds in a 6 bed room, we were amazed to be put in a private 3 bed room! Just what we needed after a hectic few days of travel! Free breakfast was a bonus, odd combination of food though- eggs, beans and cake and pasta! Would... More

Awesome location the only drawback that I really had was that there was one bathroom and the night I was staying there was one of the worst storms in Italy over the past 10 years so everyone was inside and the bathroom was a hot commodity. Awesome atmosphere and group of people.

Hostel Archi rossi- very clean, nice hot breakfast, and beautiful outdoor patio seating. Downside was that there was only one bathroom in a room of 6 people (no community bathroom either) and the WiFi is basically non existent. Nice place, but don't plan on having internet if you stay.

I was there a month ago and I must say I was afraid of staying here beacuse it didn't look good online. It is a surprisingly good hostel! I stayed at a six bed ensuite room and was not great but it was nice and really big. Each bed has its own lamp and electricity plugs. The lockers were really... More

This is a nice hostel and worth the money you pay. I stayed in a private four bed room with friends - the beds were quite comfortable and everything was clean enough. It was definitely worth the money you pay for it. The room had air conditioning which was a big plus as it was quite hot (I stayed there... More

I stayed here with my friends during our time in Florence. This was by far the best hostel I have ever visited. By staying here you are guaranteed to get full value for your money since the hostel not only offers rooms to stay in and a good breakfast but also drinking water to fill your bottles - which came...

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.
