This was easily my favorite hostel that I've stayed in. Close to the train station, food, and within walking distance of basically everything. Nadina is incredibly nice and welcoming; she also gives great traveling advice. The rooms and bathrooms were clean and comfortable. Breakfast provided a nice start to the day. It's easy to meet people here as well; lovely...

My Friends is the perfect stay in Florence! 5 minute walk from the train. As you walk in, Nadina greets you with a welcome like you've known her forever. She gave us great suggestions for food and drink, made a filling breakfast to start the day, and even provided a towel to take a much needed shower. Not having stayed...

Where to start, I love this hostel! It is very close to the centre and to the train station. The owner - Nadina is super friendly and kind, she prepares breakfast for you in the morning and gives recommendations on where to go and how to get there.

I stayed at My friends while on my first solo travel through Europe! Nadina is amazing! She makes you feel right at home when you arrive! She also allowed early check in, explained a map of the city and guided me toward the best destinations. She provided me with a great breakfast and held my things upon checkout in a...

My friend and I stayed at this hostel for 3 nights and loved every minute of it. Not only is it super close to everything and very clean and well maintained, Nadina, the woman who runs it, is so kind. She made breakfast for everyone in the mornings, was flexible with payments, gave a detailed map of her favorite places...

The best hostel experience I've ever had, starting with the wonderful Nadina who was the most welcoming host I've ever seen. You immediately feel like family in her presence and the little touches like a map with hand-written and highlighted recommendations was great, as was a little bottle of wine at the start :) The people that stay at this...

This is my favourite place to stay in Florence. Nadina makes you feel welcome from the moment you walk in the door, as she starts making you a coffee exactly the way you told her you liked it a year and a half ago when you first came to stay. Her heart and soul have gone into this place, and...

Overall would not stay at this hostel, seemed more like a long stay hostel to us since everything was unpacked in the bathrooms. The bathrooms don't look like they have EVER been cleaned, would not call it a hostel but some rooms in a house. The floors were dirty, sheets dirty, no lock on the doors so did not feel...

With a location of a few minutes away from the Duomo, Academia, Uffizi, you could basically walk your way around all the Florence attractions. Having the ideal personality, positive, charming, caring, and kind, Nadina (the owner) is the highlight of the guesthouse. Somehow I felt as if people in the guesthouse were being screened. I made friends with everyone there,...
