My boyfriend and I stayed in a private room in a building just adjacent to the hostel. The room was decent enough, although the bed really wasn't comfortable and we had to remove the top sheet on the bed because it was more of a bed cover than a sheet and I didn't really want it touching my body. It... More

This hostel is well located, very close to the city centre and the train station. Because the hostel is quite big, we were lucky to stay in the adjacent building (and far from the kitchen). The double room was spacious, the bathroom was even better than some hotels I've stayed in and the free breakfast/dinner was really good. Don't expect... More

We stayed here at the end of May, in a 4 bed female dorm, and we thought it was excellent. The breakfast was the best we experienced on our whole trip, eggs and bacon with toast and your choice of hot or cold drink. The dorms themselves were very comfortable, spacious and clean, with big lockers that you could fit... More

Checked into Ostello Archi Rossi in May. Located about 5 minutes from SMN Firenze Station, this hostel has a very friendly vibe. Rooms are large and spacious. Each person gets a large locker to him/herself. Free internet 24/7. Had a nice garden where one could mingle with other backpackers. The free walking tour every morning is pretty awesome too. Not...

As everyone knows, when you stay in a hostel, especially a large one, it is going to be loud. However, some hostels have rules for sleeping and quiet time and this one unfortunately did not. I was sick and it really affected my vacation. Similarly, the people are NOT helpful at the front desk. We wanted to do a wine... More
