“No problems at all”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2013

Very good hostel - good atmosphere, lots of social space, comfy-ish beds, free WiFi, pool, bar, secure luggage store, etc.

Really good location. Really good food - HUGE portions, making it amazing value as well.

Yeh, basically really great.

I stayed in a 6 bed dorm room for 3 nights at PLUS. The location was good, a five minute walk from the centre of the city. Just like the other PLUS locations the restaurant was good value and the food was tasty. Our bathroom could have been a bit more clean, especially the shower. Wifi is only available in the lobby which can be annoying when you need to use it but there are no seats left! (I've heard if you are in a room on the bottom floor you can access it from your room). The luggage lockers in the room where large and very handy, just make sure you bring your own lock. The laundry had 4 machines and 2 dryers, and detergent available for one euro, all machines worked, but at a cost of 4 euro per machine, it's a bit expensive.
Would stay here again if I'm ever in Florence, but don't think I will return, not much to do!

Room Tip: If you need access to wifi 24/7 ask for a room on the bottom floor.

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!

Room Tip: The whole hostel is nice, but rooms in the new section are much more luxurious, although I don't...

Just found it's like a chain hostel, so I think I would make it my priority for my stays in other cities. The room we stayed in was clean and spacious, the facilities were arranged reasonably-- the toilet and the shower were separate so if someone is having a shower then others still can use the toilet instead of waiting or disturbing.

This is a huge hostel, almost like a hotel... rooms are quite nice and new (if you're located on the new building). Downside of rooms: lack of air/con... there's a small fan but it surely doesn't help a lot.

The common areas are very nice, pool and bar have great atmosphere and the staff is friendly.

Location is great, close to everything without being in the middle of chaos. Close to the train station as well, short walk.

This is a very big hostel. We were placed in the new building which is detached from the main hostel. This was good as it was much quieter than the main building. The restaurant, bar and pool are all very clean and efficient. Perfect for younger people as there are a lot of travellers and facilities. The room was so clean and tidy, one of the best hostel rooms i've stayed in.

Large hostel that was great if you wanted a bit more comfort for a few nights. 6 bed female dorm was clean and spacious and felt more like a hotel then a hostel. Great showers! Didn't use many of their facilities and was unimpressed that they advertised tours and a travel desk on their website, but when approached about it, 3 different staff members told me none were available and the tours should have been taken off the website. As hostel is so large it was hard to meet people unless they were in your dorm. Good, free computers for guest use and spacious lockers also.
