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

Not only was this hostel a perfect place to stay (5 minute walk to Il Duomo, on a street with great food, not loud at night, easy to find near Santa Maria Novella train station and even easier to get back to the train station when we had to leave) but the woman in charge of the hostel was fantastic!...

The location is really great. 8 minutes walking from central station, and in walking distance to central market (leather market), Duomo, bridges, etc. Super friendly and helpful owner, Nadina :) Clean and neat place. I don't know was it only me or not, but it was a bit pricey. However, Nadina's tips for cheap and tasteful meals and gelato paid... More

My girlfriend and I stayed for 1 night in a mixed dorm at My Friends during our stay in Florence (June 2014). The hostel is located within walking distance from the main train station (SM Novela) and is near the city centre. The place was comfortably small and clean. The bed was comfortable and the room was spacious enough to... More

Just a short stroll from the main train station you come across this delight of a place through one of the cobblestone streets. From the moment my sister and I arrived we felt very welcomed by Nadina. She was very lovely and gave us some great tips about what to see and do in Florence including great places to eat.... More

We stayed at My Friends Guesthouse on our third night in Europe and felt very comfortable. Nadina, the manager is sweet, welcoming and helpful. She gives you a very detailed map of the main attractions, restaurants, gelato, cafés, pubs, and markets upon arrival which is quite helpful. The breakfast includes pastries, croissants, jams and jellies, coffee, tea, etc. We enjoyed... More

This place was really good. The hostess is on top of everything. She gives you great information on the city including all the great local food and gelato tips. Which really set Florence up to be some of the best food on my 2 month trip. She is also really nice. The location is about 5 min from the train... More
