We booked a private room which turned out to be brilliant. It was in a seperate building to the shared rooms, so quiet and just as good as a hotel, not hostel like at all! Only downside was we were on the 2nd floor and this mean a lot of steps to lug our bags up. Other bonuses included cooked...

This was by far the best hostel my friend and I stayed at during our backpacking trip throughout Europe post-college. (We stayed way back in 2003, but I was not able to go back that far). Book in advance and it is worth it. Great location, good for female travelers, great for backpackers on a budget, free AM breakfast.

The accomodations at the Archi Rossi were quite adequate. We stayed 8 nights in the hotel-like accomodations of the hostel. We had to walk several flights of stairs to reach our room. The desk personel said the lift was broken, which wasn't true, as the housekeeping staff and maintenance used it regularly and shut it of in-between. We also had...

I am a teenage female who stayed here solo for a few days. I was in a 4-person room. Our bathroom was great. We had our own computer in our room!!!! After staying in places like The Yellow in Roma, you'll understand what a precious commodity that is! There were also several computers in the lobby. Close to that was...

Some reviews are a tad to excited! This is a hostel... but it is a good hostel that understands the needs of a horde of backpackers. Always packed, book ahead by weeks in high season. Clean enough and has a hot egg breakfast. No kitchen, but please.. eat the Italians cooking! Located only minutes from the station in a neighborhood...

Had a wonderful time at Hostel Archi Rossi! Dorm room for 9 girls with ensuite had separate power points and book lights for each bed which was really convenient and individual lockers. Really good breakfast (9 choices including omelette/french toast/ bacon and eggs etc!) and dinner (choice of pasta, pizza or salad) was included in their really cheap price! Was...

A stone's throw from the train station and walking distance to the main sights including the Duomo. Large hostel with outdoor courtyard (terrace and small garden) and a lift if you don't want to carry your heavy bags up the stairs! Good size dorm and huge lockers, it was great the beds weren't crammed in - there were only two...

The Ostello Archi Rossi is located really close to the main train station in Florence - and for the purpose of my trip that was ideal! The walls are covered in travellers graffiti - some of which makes for an amusing read! The atmosphere in the dining area had potential to become a great place to meet other travelers but...
