This hostel, full of character is only a few minutes’ walk from the centre of town and the San Lorenzo Mercato Food Market. At the quiet end of a bustling street, it is also close to the main train station yet in neighbourhood which feels safe. We stayed in the twin en-suite room and found it spacious and perfect for...

I stayed here with a friend during our few weeks of traveling throughout Europe and we loved it! Nadina is very welcoming and provides a nice breakfast in the mornings. There is a small common area for other hostellers to congregate. We got to meet many people from different countries. Wifi is pretty good and the location is very close... More

It´s a wonderful place to stay if you are traveling on a budget. The owner of the place is super friendly and kind. It´s only 3 block from the train station. Great location. Lots of restaurants near by. Clean place. Small locker and bathrooms but its OK for Europe. Great breakfast included. Fast and free WiFi everywhere in the hostel.

This hostel is one of a kind. Nadina, the host, is so helpful. She would do everything she can to make your holiday a beautiful one. The hostel is always clean and the breakfast is prepared with love. It is just 5 minutes away from the train station and about 5 / 10 minutes away from the piazza duomo. You... More

This place is so amazing. I cannot say enough good things about My Friends. It is an 8 minute, easy walk from the train station. I arrived four hours later than I was supposed to because I missed my trains and Nadina had stayed late, past the time that she needed to, just to make sure I was welcomed. She... More

This hostel was great. We are 2 50 yr ladies. Nadina was a welcoming friendly host who was always ready to help with anything. The location was great. We walked everywhere in Florence & it was close to the markets, train station & all the attractions. The room was spacious and clean. We loved it here.

Where do I begin? I arrived at Florence and My Friends being disappointed for not finding the 'dolce vita' that everyone is taking about when it comes to Italy and I found it here thanks to Nadina. Her generosity is just amazing, the hostel is small and perfect unlike the usual clinical style hostels you get in Italy. Her recommendations... More

Absolutely reccomend this place to anyone that wants a small hostel experience with a family style welcoming. Nadina is a great host, she maps out and reccomends all of the best and cheapest local spots, and she makes sure every guest is comfortable. Strongly suggest staying here, train station is close and it's a great spot to start your trip... More
