This place I cannot rate highly enough. It may not be 5* luxury but if you are looking to have a good time in Florence stay here, because the staff here are 11/10. I have never felt so welcome in a hostel, a great warm homely welcome. Followed by a detailed (very detailed) explanation of what we can do in... More

I stayed at My Friends Guesthouse for a weekend in January 2014. During a previous visit to Florence, I had stayed at a nice hostel a bit more centrally located. Knowing that the hostel's location was closer to the train station, I decided to stay change hostels as I would be flying back to the States early on a Sunday... More

I'm 8 months late writing this review but I stayed I stayed at this hostel in May 2013 and although I was only there 2 nights, I had the best experience here. Nadina and her boyfriend were absolutely lovely. As soon as I arrived, she offered me tea and sat down with me with a map of the city and... More

I would say that my friends hostel is the best hostel I've been in Italy, really well located, 5 minutes walk from both Duomo and central train station. The bedrooms are also really clean and the matresses are really good. Last but not least I need to mention how nice are the hostel owners, Nadina and Helio are both really... More

My friend and I originally booked for two nights here. We stayed in the front room in a 6 person mixed dorm. The first night, we slept with one of the windows open and it was very bright and loud all night. The next night, the windows were closed and it felt like a cave, it was great. We ended... More

Nadina is the greatest hostess we have ever met and I am sure she would donate her kidney if you asked her. Never stressed and always with a smile and leaves you with great recommendations. The room was small but sufficient and clean, a bit noisy though.

This place is amazing. Its literally five minutes walking from the train station, and the owner sends you clear and easy walking directions. It's a bit small, but you get to know all the other travelers really well, and they are always happy to share a story, a recommendation, and a bottle of wine. The owner, Nadina, is extremely friendly... More

I can't even express enough how great my stay was here. Upon arriving, the hostess, Nadina gave me and my sister maps and marked up good, reasonably priced places to eat around the city. She also offered us coffee, tea, water or wine for free! She was incredibly helpful and kind and even if the inn itself were a disaster,... More

Nadia was the best host we've had in our whole trip to Europe and UK! We felt right at home. We checked in early and was greeted with breakfast and sat with us and showed us some great places to explore in Florence. It was great to have free printing and wifi available. Some recommendations and no fault of the... More
