This hostel is amazing. Truly. Not only are the beds ridiculously comfy, but the staff (a lovely German lady called Nadina and her boyfriend) are superb. WiFi is great. Breakfast is lovely. Unlimited tea and coffee in the kitchen. Not a huge place - two rooms of 6 beds, of which 4 are SINGLE bunks. No air-con but there are... More

The hostel was quite small - maybe 16 people total - and had a sort of homey atmosphere. The beds were comfortable, and the breakfast nice. Good location. But the best aspect by far is Nadina. Her passion for Florence is fantastic, she has the best suggestions for where to go and where to eat, and she truly cares about... More

I had a great stay here! Nadina is so lovely and really makes you feel welcome. The location is awesome and her restaurant recommendations were spot on. It's a quieter hostel with no real common area but I really enjoyed the slightly more mature crowd it attracted. It certainly isn't a party hostel. Rooms were spacious and comfortable with lockers.... More

By far the best experience I had during my 3 week backpacking trip through Europe. The staff are extremely helpful and friendly, the location is perfect, and the prices are reasonable. Highly recommended!

Nadina is an angel and her hostel one of the best I have ever stayed at! The beds are really comfortable, the place very clean and VERY well located, it is a great place to meet cool people, if I ever go back to Florence (which is very possible, because it is a great city) I wouldn't hesitate one second,...

I loved this small hostel! I'm not usually a hostel kind of girl ( maybe my age??!) but it was small, friendly and had very comfortable beds. It's close to the train/bus station and very close to the sights of Florence. Nadina is very helpful and friendly and produces a breakfast of croissants, cake, fresh fruit, coffee and juice every...

This hostel was great and Nadina took great care of everyone. It's small but it's nice and cozy. Nadina is very helpful in any way she can be. Towels are provided and she even made the beds everyday. It's in a great location, just a few minutes from the train station. 5-10 minutes from the central market and duomo. I... More

This is a top hostel, to be honest it's more like a BnB but with shared dorms. Nadina takes care of literally everything for you, be it drafting an itinerary to get the most out of Florence, recommending bars, ice cream places, restaurants, neighbourhoods - and not just generic stuff, she really tried to understand what I wanted to do...

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...

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.
