I only stayed for one night at the My Friends guesthouse in Florence, but I would happily have stayed for longer. The location is very convenient, just a few minutes walk from the train station, and the directions sent to me in the confirmation email were detailed and helpful. The lady who runs the hostel is very friendly and chatty,... More

Totally amazed by The wonderful attention of Nadina (as everybody I guess) Not only she is a beautiful mixture between German and Italian woman, but also she is too kind to believe it. She takes the time to explain to everybody where, how and sometimes why to go. Definitely a super plus in a well taken care hotel. Clean and... More

Stayed here for 3 nights. Small and lovely hostel perfect for solo travel. Easier to actually get to know other guests than larger hostels. Owner is so sweet and extremely helpful. She spotted me wandering around without a map and walked me to a beautiful park.

One of the nicest hostels I have been at. Very warm and welcoming atmosphere. Very clean. Staff is amazing. Not a party hostel, but a place to meet great people. Location is great. I would definitely stay there again.

Stayed here with 2 friends and it was wonderful. Our host was the most friendly woman who made us breakfast every morning and gave us a map with personal recommendations and made sure everything was perfect for us.

Nadina was so helpful, friendly and obviously works around the clock to make everyone's stay as great as she can. Stayed in the 6 bed room- without air con the room was extremely hot in July, but Nandina offered... More

Right when I got there I was given a... More

The place is very near the railway station (like five blocks away) which in Florence is a very convenient location for all the touristic attractions and the neighbourhood is full of hotels and restaurants. I never took a taxi or any transport of any sort, you'll be near everything. The host, Nadine, is wonderful and super attentive. She is always... 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.
