Great location and the staff are super helpful and friendly. They recommended to my friend and I to go to Cinque Terre and it was definitely one of the most amazing places I have ever been/
The bar was awesome as well, and really cheap good food. Also, on top of the roof there is a nice look out over the city.

This is one of the best hostel we've ever stayed and the location is very strategic. It's about 35 minutes walk to the old bridge and very near to other attractions in Florence.

We stayed in the private room with ensuite bathroom and the room is spacious the bathroom is clean and the room have long windows that you can open.

The facilities in the private room is as per advertised and you could also book day trips from the reception.

Another plus point is that they have a laundry room.

This hostel is also good for families.

Room Tip: Get room on higher floor for city view.

If you are looking for a cheap but tidy and very well located place when you cant go wrong. If you want a beautiful ,posh or something with nice Italian spirit its not the place for you. I was travelling with my friends (a group of young girls) . we only stayed in Florence for 2 days so this place was perfect. It was clean and tidy. No noise at night ( unlike some people complained about it ). Easy check in and check out. and most importantly very close to the main attractions. The famous Duomo is only a short stroll away through the old town market and shops ,around 10min max!
havent tried any food or other facilities so can not comment.
The only negative thing was - no parking! we went through a lot of trouble trying to find a parking space in Florence. There is enough space in hostel garden so not sure why they cant allow people to park there.

This is a great hostel, clean and in a good location and at a great price too. About a 10min walk from the main train station. We stayed in the new building, which is away from the main reception area and the recreation areas. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Request a room in the new building.

Not a bad hostel overall. Very similar to all the other PLUS hostels located in Europe.

Positives: Rooms were huge, so much space which was awesome for sorting bags out. Lockers fit large suitcases. Hostel is located within 10-15min walk (depending on speed) from all attractions. Restaurant was ideal especially for what you get - nice large pizzas and it only cost 1 euro to put several extra toppings on a pizza which was good.

Negatives: Pillows are beyond a joke flat, may as well have slept on just the mattress. I also got eaten alive in the rooms which I didn't know if it was mosquitoes or bedbugs as the windows were shut...

Hostel is within walking distance to most of florence and there are lots of restaurants on the same st if you don't want to travel far for dinner. The hostel itself is massive..which did make it harder to meet people as the common room near reception was more a space for everyone to use wifi (it doesn't work in the rooms) but I still met lots of people you just have to make more of an effort. Dinner downstairs was nice and reasonably priced...breakfast however is not worth the money.
The rooms were clean and of a decent size. I would stay here again so overall pretty good

I had good friends who recomended me Plus Hostel, so I booked there. It´s well located in Florence, it´s clean and has good price. But I have to advice: if you book a double room, located in the ground floor, bring your earplugs to get to sleep. People instead of have party at the basement, where the hostel has a huge space for that, prefer to chat, yell, play and party during the night at the lobby, very close to the double rooms. We complained with staff on the first night but it happened for the next 2 nights.
