A very short walk from the train station, and just as close to the markets, great restaurants, and the main attractions. Nadina was so helpful, friendly and obviously works around the clock to make everyone's stay as great as she can. Stayed in the 6 bed room- without air con the room was extremely hot in July, but Nandina offered...

I stayed in the Florence location of "My Friends" for about a week and it was perfect. The people were super friendly and helpful, all their recommendations were excellent, it's in walking distance to everything, the bathrooms are clean, and they don't nickle and dime you like so many other places. Right when I got there I was given a...

The place is very near the railway station (like five blocks away) which in Florence is a very convenient location for all the touristic attractions and the neighbourhood is full of hotels and restaurants. I never took a taxi or any transport of any sort, you'll be near everything. The host, Nadine, is wonderful and super attentive. She is always...

Good Location. Close to the bus/ train station. but we kept getting lost! The place was nice and quiet . The breakfast was very basic but did the job. The manager Nadina was super friendly and helpful.

This hostel is amazing. Truly. Not only are the beds ridiculously comfy, but the staff (a lovely German lady called Nadina and her boyfriend) are superb. WiFi is great. Breakfast is lovely. Unlimited tea and coffee in the kitchen. Not a huge place - two rooms of 6 beds, of which 4 are SINGLE bunks. No air-con but there are...

The hostel was quite small - maybe 16 people total - and had a sort of homey atmosphere. The beds were comfortable, and the breakfast nice. Good location. But the best aspect by far is Nadina. Her passion for Florence is fantastic, she has the best suggestions for where to go and where to eat, and she truly cares about...

I had a great stay here! Nadina is so lovely and really makes you feel welcome. The location is awesome and her restaurant recommendations were spot on. It's a quieter hostel with no real common area but I really enjoyed the slightly more mature crowd it attracted. It certainly isn't a party hostel. Rooms were spacious and comfortable with lockers....
