This place is really cool! Not the most convenient location but Florence is small anyway. The service was good, you get a free welcome drink, the rooms and bathroom were very clean (ran out of warm water one day but the other was fine), there wasn't enough locks for us but we didn't have any problems, breakfast was good (they...

So I walked in to be greeted by a few friendly faces at the bar.. And I get handed a free beer as soon as I walk in!! The guys must know its tiring to travel and they also know exactly what fixes this! And it just keeps getting better. This place has a great atmosphere; the lounge/hang out area... More

Phenomenal place! The rooms were nice, had comfy beds, and their own heating. The bathrooms are terrific with big showers and hot water. The best part of this place was the 'atmosphere'. Inside is a classy bar, lounge piano, and stage. I met some really cool people here and the employees themselves were so nice! For the price (which is... More

I stayed in tasso for about a week in May this year and loved it! When we arrived we were greeted with a glass of wine (great start) then shown to out lovely, spotless room. There is a bar and courtyard downstairs which is great if you want to relax and possibly meet a few people from the hostel. I... More

This hostel was really nice- it looked more like a hotel than a hostel. The only thing is, because it was so large it was difficult meeting other travelers. It would be a lot better if the hostel made the effort to get everyone together for activities, etc. But the room was very nice, staff was really nice, and in... More

I booked this place the day of my arrival after quickly reading the reviews here. It is a 15 minute walk from the train station and easy to find if you have a good map. I like that it is in Historical Firenze without the tourist hordes nearby. I had a lot of doubts upon my arrival, and showered in... More

I absolutely loved my two nights in Tasso!! After quite a long walk because I got lost I arrived in a peacefull, quiet, beautifull and cool entry hall. A really nice woman did a quick check in, gave me a map and told me the most important things! The walk into the center is about 20 minutes but beautiful itself... More

I've never written a hostel review before, however I am making an exception for Tasso because it really deserves one. Polite, friendly and helpful staff, very cool/hip atmosphere, the lobby is a great place to chill, hang out, drink, read or whatever you wanna do (by the way, whoever made the track list for the music has really good taste!!)......

The area "south of the river" in Florence is much better than the side with the Duomo, Uffizi Gallery, and all the main attractions. it feels much more local, calm, interesting and pleasant. You want to stay in this zone of Florence. The hostel -- just a couple years old -- feels brand new. In addition to some spacious dorms,... More
