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! She gave us a map, places to see that were off the beaten path, and advice for the best things to do in the area. There is also someone who cleans the hostel every day. A very warm atmosphere and cozy. There are some tables to eat breakfast she gives you in the morning as well as a small courtyard to sit in. I highly recommend My Friends! Graziemille!!
