“Great place, clean, modern, bad breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2014

The hotel was great. We stayed at a separate building, so we didn't have to deal with the large number of people coming and going, and the teenagers grouping around making noise. The bedroom was fantastic, modern, great size bed, air conditioning that worked well, big flat screen tv. It wasn't very big and there wasn't a chair (the bed-side.tables were cushioned seats). There are lots of people coming and going, but the staff is helpful. The bathroom is small but has 2 separate spaces, one for the toilet, the other for the shower. All in all, great facilities.
It's not very central, but it's a good walking distance to the center and close enough to the train station.
The breakfast wasn't worth the 6€. The bread was thick, no flavour. Just one type of bread, no croissant, no delicacies, simple choices that make you feel in a hostel. The butter was bland, the ham as well... There is bacon and eggs, but it's just not worth it to pay 6€ and not eat anything really apetizing.

Room Tip: If you can, go to building B, where this modern new room was.

3. Individual socket and lamp for each bed ( GOOD!)
4. Free computer for using
5. Nice staff to recommend the attractions in florence
6. Fair price

But I would not stay here again! Too noisy!

Very close to the main train station in Florence. My only complaint is some of the rooms are outdated and the mattresses very uncomfortable. Staff are friendly and wifi works nicely. Terrace bar has great view of city as well. 6€ all you can eat breakfast is well worth the money.

I stayed at Plus Florence for one night and I had mixed feelings about the hostel. When I was checking in it literally took over half an hour to be seen by the multiple staff behind the desk. I was the second in line but whatever issues they were having with their customers was not being solved very quickly. As well I found the restaurant staff very rude. I asked one of them what dish it was they were eating and I got a very snappy and rude tone response of "it's not on the menu." And "the restaurant opens at 6." Also, if you are interested in partying and meeting tons of people this is the place for you. If you want an early night definitely reconsider. Do NOT stay here. there is music and screaming long into the night. I assume that the higher floors will not have such an issue but as I was in room 6 I could hear everything.
Now for the good. The one positive thing I can say about the hostel is the fact that it has an amazing outdoor padio with a pool, which I very much enjoyed!!! As well as a rooftop terace with panoramic views of the city. Both were great for meeting people and relaxing!
Location is decent... maybe a 15-20 minute walk to the duomo and a 15 minute walk to the train station.
All in all, I would only stay again if I was traveling solo and interested in a 'crazier' night life.

This place was less of a hostel and more of a commune. From the dodgy location (was central, but not very nice) to the drab decorations, this hostel was very strange.

Huge queue at check in, unhelpful check-in staff, long walk to our room (was in a separate building), and overall drab and dull exterior. The room itself was a private double and was in desperate need of decorating, the rooms were grey and pretty much summed up the atmosphere. The bathroom was a wet room rather than a shower, and each time the shower was used the entire room was drenched. There were bugs in the room and uneven floorboards.

The location was probably the best thing that the hostel had going for it. It was not a nice part of town but the main train station was within walking distance.

Needless to say I would not recommend this place, or stay here again, even if you paid me!

This was a very short stay for us but it was perfectly fine. It had a lot of things to do, swimming pool, gym, bar, restaurant and probable other things I didn't get a chance to see. 
   The rooms were nice and clean with bathrooms inside each one. Wifi was ok but not the best, breakfast was very good but other than the restaurant/breakfast area there wasn't much of a common room anywhere. The staff was very busy so it was hard to ask for recommendations.

The hostel is fine, decent bed and shower but it's absolutely massive so feels quite impersonal. There is always a huge queue of people waiting at the reception desk so it can take some time to get to speak to a member of staff. The wifi didn't work for me or anyone in my room at all the entire time we were there. I'd avoid the breakfast, it's really not great. The beds are comfy anough and each bunk has a light and plug. Each person gets a huge lockers too, which is big enough to fit a large travellers backpack in (bring your own padlock). There is a bar and also a pool which is a huge plus, I didn't use either myself but heard good things about both. The location is great, about 10 minute walk from the main station. Florence city centre is ery compact so everywhere is walkable and this hostel is situated in a great spot. Overall, a nice enough place to rest your head for a few nights, just nothing special.
