Overall would not stay at this hostel, seemed more like a long stay hostel to us since everything was unpacked in the bathrooms. The bathrooms don't look like they have EVER been cleaned, would not call it a hostel but some rooms in a house. The floors were dirty, sheets dirty, no lock on the doors so did not feel... More

With a location of a few minutes away from the Duomo, Academia, Uffizi, you could basically walk your way around all the Florence attractions. Having the ideal personality, positive, charming, caring, and kind, Nadina (the owner) is the highlight of the guesthouse. Somehow I felt as if people in the guesthouse were being screened. I made friends with everyone there,... More

First of all, Nadina really makes the stay! She is incredibly caring and helpful - the perfect person to run a hostel. She treats you like an honored guest in her home. She is also great a creating community among the visitors. The accommodations are simple but very well kept. There is enough space in the rooms to spread out... More

Great location, very clean, and most of all fantastic service. Nadina, the hostel owner, is very kind; she provides free map detailing all the good restaurants and attractions, serves free breakfast, coffee, tea, and occasionally wine, and is above all very amiable. The whole experience felt homely. If there is one thing that could be better about the hostel, it... More

Booked the place for my daughter and her friend. Super hospitality to ensure guest comfort. Although it was 3 bed mixed dorm, the two girls got it all to themselves. Were allowed to store their luggage in the dorm itself even after checkout. Bathroom was top class and clean. Location is only 5 minutes away from the bus station, so... More

Stayed here for a few days on a short trip to Florence. The place has a lot going for it. Nadine is very friendly and gives you a map with good suggestions where to eat or have ice cream. The location is excellent, close to the train station, but not right in the touristy area. That means for example you... More

I only stayed for one night at the My Friends guesthouse in Florence, but I would happily have stayed for longer. The location is very convenient, just a few minutes walk from the train station, and the directions sent to me in the confirmation email were detailed and helpful. The lady who runs the hostel is very friendly and chatty,... More

Totally amazed by The wonderful attention of Nadina (as everybody I guess) Not only she is a beautiful mixture between German and Italian woman, but also she is too kind to believe it. She takes the time to explain to everybody where, how and sometimes why to go. Definitely a super plus in a well taken care hotel. Clean and... More
