There's no better place to stay in Florence than at PLUS. The reviews that say it's 'more like a hotel than a hostel' are complete nonsense, unless that's a really negative way of saying it's big, lively and super clean, which it is.
Out of the 8 hostels we stayed in during our trip to Italy, this was hands down the best, and here's why. The staff were amazing, and sorted out my mistake with the booking which was completely my fault. The first room we stayed in was in the new part, and was a lot cleaner, comfier, bigger and more stylish than 2/3 of the hotel rooms I've ever stayed in. The second room wasn't as plush, but it was still the best hostel room of the lot. Air conditioning was great, the lockers were huge and had space to hang clothes and the bathrooms were squeaky clean.
The communal areas downstairs are also brilliant. The pool bar area serves food and drinks with music all day and makes you feel like you're on a nice relaxing beach holiday somewhere. Inside there is a large restaurant area that doubles up to serve a decent all you can eat breakfast buffet in the morning.
Don't be put off by the 'hotel' vibe that's been put out. It's most definitely not a hotel, it's just really big and really clean, and there's nothing negative about that. Meeting people is not a problem, it's the busiest hostel in Florence and the majority of backpackers who come to Florence stay here. Out of 14 nights out in Italy, 2 of the best were here, and we met some amazing friends.
Already planning on staying here again, don't miss out!
