We loved hostel Gallo d'Oro! The hostel was very clean and the security was great. We had a double room with our own bathroom and thought it was lovely. The continental breakfast in the morning was the best I've seen at a hostel thus far. The lovely woman who did the breakfast for us always asked to make us coffee... More

I fell in love with Hostel Gallo d'Oro! I came and stayed for 7 nights in total without a reservation as a friends from a previous hostel recommended it to me. There were no spaces left online to book but the amazing staff ended up fitting me in anyway. I changed rooms a few times but it was well and... More

I stayed at this hostel May 20-22nd in the 4 bed female dorm. The room was simple and clean, with two single beds and one bunk bed. You choose your bed on arrival and are assigned a locker to match, with a key for it, so you don't need a lock. This was wonderful! The bedroom had an ensuite bathroom... More

Ciao L.!! Thanks so much for your precise and detailed review. We're glad you've been good in our hostel and we are waiting for you again as soon as possible. Unfortunately, in those days of May, there were technical problems of internet connection in the whole area around the hostel, beyond our control. But everything was solved within a few... More

This is one hostel I will never forget, it was like staying with an extended family for a few days. My friend and I were in a 4 bedroom with two other lovely girls and we ended up spending a lot of our time with the other guests. Marco was very welcoming and they put together an adorable and tasty... More

When I originally checked in, I was given a room with a shared bathroom, even though I had booked an ensuite. I was told to wait the next day to speak with Marco. Because it was late, I was tired, and everything else seemed to match expectations, I made no fuss and was switched the following day. Apparently hostelworld's online... More

We booked a double private room with ensuite bathroom. We were first given a room with a private external bathroom with two single beds and weren't happy. Original staff member who had checked us in had just left so we spoke with a female colleague she was very helpful even though she was very busy and changed our room to... More

I had a great experience in this hostel. Staff was very friendly and knew all there is to do in florence. You just have to ask them what you want to do and that's it. The room was nice but i always recommend to bring earplugs if you are going to share a room. One night though the ac was... More

My husband & I stayed here for 4 nights on our visit to Florence and Tuscany. We got in the Hostel from the station by Bus and short walk. The building was hard to find with little signage.
