“Good but nothing exceptional”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2014 via mobile

Great location next to the bus and train stations. decent breakfast (get there early when its warm. Coffee is bad). Service was good and includes free walking tour from the hostel. However atmosphere left something to be desired if youre looking to drink with fellow travelers. Beds are small and a bit springy. But lockers are incredibly spacious. Recommend for the value but nothing to write home about

This hostel was absolutely perfect!!!

Rooms were good - beds were a little bit old but they did the job! The room was clean and the private bathroom with shower was great.

There is a beautiful garden terrace off the breakfast room downstairs with a little pond, and a terrace upstairs too. Great for sitting out relaxing and meeting fellow-travellers at all times of day.

Some unusual things at breakfast like lasagne and noodles. But if you fancy cereal, toast, tea/coffee, fruit and a little Tiramisu for your breakfast it's all there too!

Some more useful things are the laundry facilities (€4 wash, €4 dry), microwave, free hot and cold water, luggage storage.

Located right in the centre of Florence, it's almost impossible to get lost. About a 3 minute walk from Florence SM train station.

This hostel is absolutely perfect. The rooms were clean, breakfast was nice, very beautiful decorations and garden and they even had computers in the room and a tour guide every morning. The location is close to the center and the staff was very polite and helpful. Just A+

Room Tip: There is no reason to go to a hotel if you are 4 people. Just book a room of 4 in this hostel and u...

I thought Archi Rossi was so well-organised without being overbearing. The breakfast was amazing if not a slightly odd selection of stuff, the free pasta dinner was also not bad but obviously not the best to be found in Florence. Despite there being a dining room it was not really a social place but I guess that depends on the people there at the time.
My dorm was stuffy and humid from the shower - and I was there in January! A little cold at night though a spare blanket wouldn't have gone amiss!
I really liked the art work around the hostel and everywhere felt clean and would certainly return.

Strategic place, near the station, 3 min from the cathedral. Everything is clean, which i did not expect.
The staff is really kind and helpful.
Breakfast though is the worst of all time!!!! Seriously bad...there are chips and pasta but no nutella, which drives me insane! The coffee is prob the worst i've ever had and the orange juice tastes like yellow water.
The beds are a little hard and in room 4 only 1 sink out of 3 is functional.

The staff was indifferent and non helpful. They were bored to give us any tips or piece of advice. The room was not so clean. We did not enter the hotel from the main entrance but instead through the entrance of another hotel. From the 2nd to the 3rd floor there was no elevator so we had to climb through the stairs with our luggage. The breakfast was OK but the warm food was actually cold.

My family and I stayed at Archi Rossi for two nights in a 4 bed dorm en suite, double room and single. All the rooms were clean, relatively comfortable and surprisingly spacious. The location is the best thing about this hostel, as it is less than a five minute walk from the SMN Firenze Station. Good wifi, large selection of options in the breakfast buffet (not amazing, but it's free and filling). Laundry on site, good wifi, and nice open air areas between the hostel and hotel next door where you could sit outside and enjoy the cool spring breeze amidst flowers and other greenery.
