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...

Free walking tours, central location, good breakfast (not only a croissant), friendly and multilingual staff. No air conditioning, but the hostel is practically free. If you're on a budget, hostel Archi Rossi is the one for you!

For the price paid, this was a good place to stay. Very friendly staff. Unfortunately, they did not serve dinner when I was there, but at least I had a very decent breakfast to start the day, also included in the price! The rooms are very clean and comfortable with power outlets at every bed and free wifi. Note that... More

Nice hostel and worth for the money you pay. The beds are not really comfortable, however it is clean enough to stay safe. They have the most amazing breakfast compared to other hostels for sure. That was my best favorite part of it. Nice location not that far from the train station. It took only 5 minutes walk. All the... More

I had a good experience at this hostel. The shared (6-bed) room and bathroom were clean, the common areas and outdoor area was very nice, the concierges were friendly and helpful, and there was a functional computer center which was very helpful since the wifi was a little bit spotty. The complimentary breakfast had a good variety of hot and... More

As far as hostels go this place is pretty clean and quite, but the shared bathroom was constantly out of toilet paper and on my last night there the smoke detector started making a screeching noise around 2 in the morning (it wasn't an actual alarm, I checked the halls and it was only happening in my room). Also, my... 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.
