“Loved this hostel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2011

Even though I was the "old timer" the staff treated me very well! It is a lovely place to get respite from the crowded streets of Firenze in the summer and away from the summer heat (wonderful air conditioned facility). The hostel staff made sure that a cab was called for me and waiting whenever I needed one. It is located in a vibrant part of Florence with great access to restaurants and sights. Even with the tight parking in Florence the staff helped me find a safe place to park my car only two blocks from the hostel! This is the place I will stay on my next visit to Florence!!!

Room Tip: Ask for en-suite....it is lovely!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2011

This was a very nice hostel. I stayed with two other friends, and we had a room to ourselves for two nights. There were multiple bathrooms and showers for guests to share that were always clean. They had internet for a very inexpensive rate. The staff were so helpful to guide us around Florence to top attractions. They also gave great restaurant recommendations. The facilities were always clean, and the hostel was very quiet. It was about a 10 minute walk to the Duomo, and a 3-4 minute walk from the train station. It is the perfect location for a weekend trip. I'd stay here again!

Everything was fantastic in this hostel, we paid very cheaply for the hostel, but the service was more like a hotel. We had very nice accomodations with a computer and tv in the room, our own bathroom, and the staff were very nice and helpful. It was very close to the center of town, which was great for walking around everywhere. Couldn't have asked for a better place!...Close

The owner of Luna Rossa has 3 places. Be sure to ask for Luna Rossa - they might try to put you up in Hotel Ester but ask specifically for Luna Rossa.
The rooms are big with all the essentials and more - computer in the room, flat TV, bathrooms either in or outside the room are spacious and new and with all the essentials. Large kitchen packed with pots, dishes, etc, a refrig, oven, and stove. They do laundry for free.
The staff was wonderful - the owner and his sister are very helpful and give great advice about what to do in Florence and in Tuscany.
The location is great. There aren't many rooms on the floor so it is quiet.
I strongly recommend this hostel.

Don't be put off on your arrival. The reception is in an awful gutted building. We were helped to the location of our actual rooms a few doors down. This area has numerous eateries and is very well positioned for visiting all the tourist attractions. It is less than 5 minutes walk from the station but we did not hear any trains or traffic noise.

This hotel/hostel is in a good location with really helpful staff. I was booked for 4 nights at Luna Rossa, but after one night was transfered to Hotel Ester across the road (not sure why). My room at Luna Rossa was nicer but it was right off reception so very noisy and no privacy so I was glad to be moved.
Good: Location is right near the central train station, free internet and pay tv in everyroom - sooo helpful, fridge in room, they will wash your clothes for free
Bad: Noisy until at least 10pm most nights and it was the staff/staff friends making the noise, bathrooms are a bit dodgy
