OK Maybe 2 Stars

No elevator and steep narrow stairs and hallways, Internet only in selected areas (like posted on internet), the remote control did not work and the TV did not had signal, the refrigerator almost works (jajaja), the bathroom floor was dirty and the bathroom in general looked very used, I had to fix the shower because 2/3 of the holes were completely blocked by calcification and the other third barely had water coming out of them, the air conditioner was set to 24 º C but felt like 26 and only they have the remote control, one light bulb was broken, etc. In general it looked like 20 years ago it might have deserved the 3 stars, but they have not maintained it well ever since, so many things are old, broken, obsolete, and badly done (Like everything I saw in the Naples area).

Ask carefully where is the platform of the train you need to take in the main train station, because there are several with the same number but in a different part of the train station. For example there is one platform 3 at ground level and 2 more downstairs in different places.

Great Room

I loved the room and location was almost perfect. I didnt get a chance to enjoy the amenities or bar there but if you are young and travelling this is the place to stay. Internet is not strong signal in rooms was my only issue.

Our stay in Plus Florence

We were a little disappointed by Plus Florence. I'd read some really good reviews about the place and was expecting something much better. I have stayed in much nicer hostels, perhaps our room just wasn't as good as some of the dorms as it was a private one. The bed wasn't the most comfortable and it felt like we were sleeping in an office due to the roof tiles and the lighting! Also 2 out of 3 of the plug sockets weren't available for use so it meant hair drying/straightening was done without a mirror and charging phones had to just hang from a height! The bathroom however was really nice although the toilet seat didn't appear to fit properly! The breakfast was very average so we went elsewhere on the 2nd day. Florence is a beautiful city with lots to do. The location of the hostel was great and I could sense it would have been good for young backpackers. Maybe it just wasn't suitable for couples! The pool was a lot smaller than I expected and also quite cold! I thought the place was also quite scruffy in parts.

We found a fantastic Greek restaurant very close to the hostel which was a brilliant change from the usual Italian food. Would highly recommend this place.

We loved the Plus Florence Hostel. Better than hotels...

Better than hotels we stayed in in Paris and Nice, France. Clean, friendly, spacious and with helpful staff. Rooftop bar/lounge with amazing view of sunset, moonrise and Duomo! Walking distance to all tourist must-see areas, if you are fit to walk (otherwise, buses, etc. close-by). Will return if we are lucky to visit Florence again.

Great Hostel

This was the best hostel I have stayed at. They offer so many things, and are very kind and accomadating. Very clean, great breakfast, free wifi, free AC, short walking distance to everything in Florence, including the train station...

Great!

The quality of Plus Florence is more of a hotel than a hostel. I booked a private room with two friends and we ended up getting a huge room with a small kitchen and our own private bathroom! The hostel also had an information desk that was helpful when finding out what to do in Florence. Highly recommended!
