This is the best hostel I've stayed at, and I've stayed in quite a few. The host, Nadina is an absolute gem! She was such an accommodating person, so kind and friendly. Breakfast was lovely; it was prepared for you and the wifi was great. Shared a room with 4 other solo travellers. Bed was comfortable to crash for a few nights. Location was 5 mins from the Santa Maria Novella train station. Just superb place to stay, because the staff were so great!
My Friends is a great name for the hostel because you are treated just as that. The staff are incredibly kind, welcoming, and helpful. The breakfast included is great and prepared for you. The atmosphere is wonderful and the rooms clean and comfortable. Furthermore, the location is great as you are an easy walk from any of Florence's attractions and very near the train station. Definitely recommend this hostel!
There are not locks for the lockers; however, I did not feel like my things were ever in danger
Nadina is a perfect host! I need to come back in her hostel
This is an excellent hostel – especially if you want to be treated very well. The couple who run this hostel are extremely friendly, and they make you feel like Florence itself is welcoming you. Nadina went out of her way to give me directions to good, cheap food and top sights and to answer all of my other questions. She greeted me by name each day and made the atmosphere in the hostel feel very sociable and welcoming to everyone. This begins your first day as she welcomes you with a cup of tea or coffee and continues as she brings you a breakfast tray each morning and asks how your day was in the evening. The mattresses are extremely comfortable, and each bed has a conveniently located electrical socket for charging your electronics while you use them. Other outlets are also available if you need to charge several items. In addition, Nadina provides everyone with a large, clean, soft towel. Shampoo and bath soap are also available. The Wifi is free and reliable in the bedrooms and social area. The rooms and showers are very clean. Every bed has a locker, and Nadina loaned me a padlock. There is also a computer and free printing. The kitchen has plenty of dishes, refrigerator, toaster, microwave, water kettle, and tea/coffee available. The location is very close to the train station and an easy walk to most of the top sights in Florence. The area feels safe as a woman walking alone. This hostel is especially good if you want more than just a place to sleep. I will definitely be staying here on my next trip to Florence, and I have already started recommending it to my friends.
The only slight negative is that the bathrooms can have a line in early morning, but this can easily be worked around by avoiding the busy 8:30-9:30am time.
Staff was incredibly kind and helpfull Awesome environment Super breakfast
Nothing at all
The owner was great. She went above and beyond. This has been my best hostel experience so far!
Nadina was just as fabulous as all the reviews said! She gave us a map of Florence with her suggestions for reasonably priced food and gelato and never steered us wrong! The whole atmosphere of the hostel was very warm and welcoming. Specifically NOT a party hostel, which means I actually got to sleep. Breakfast was great too!
Only two bathrooms/showers, so if some guests decided to take their time getting ready in the morning everyone else had to wait. Very small, which was fine for me but just a warning to others.
I stayed only 1 night, but it was like being at home. The place is small, but very nice and clean. The bed was comfortable. Also, it's in a great position, near the station and the center. Finally, the host, Nadina, is absolutely fantastic, very nice, helpful and friendly.
Loved loved the location. The owner, Nadina, is truly a sweetheart. She was very helpful and accommodating, and made sure everything was always comfortable and clean for everyone. One of the best, wait, the best hostel I've ever stayed at.
The staff (Nadia) was absolutely wonderful! She made you feel at home and took the time to explain the best of Florence (Where to go for cheap delicious food, less touristy areas, etc). I would definitely go back and stay with My Friends!
Nadina is very hospitable and friendly. she advised me helpful touristic information, such as local restaurant, must-see spot and tasty ice cream shops.
The owner is extremely friendly and helpful. Most of the people that travel through are also very friendly. The location is great, 7 minutes to the cathedral, 4 to the train station. There is also plenty of food in its surroundings. Personally had an amazing time there, was an absolute blast.
There were a few mozzies in the back yard.
Throughout the rest of my trip, I gave My Friends a lot of free advertising, because of how much I loved this place. Florence is a gorgeous city, but it takes someone who is from Florence to really tell you where to go and what to do. Nadina is that person! It is evident that she cares a great deal about making her guest feel comfortable, and this hostel feels like home because of her. This is an amazing place, and I would dare say this was the most comfortable bed I slept in while in Europe! It felt like I was sleeping at a friend's house or something. The breakfast is served to you like you're royalty, and Nadina won't let you lift a finger (because you're on holidays, of course!). Location-wise, it simply could not be better. It is less than 3 minutes from the main train station; however, make sure you request for direction, because I got lost the first time. Whether you enjoy going out, or staying in a quiet place, you will not regret staying at My Friends!
Nothing! I wish I could have stayed longer!
Nadina is an amazing host - lovely welcome, ideas for places to visit, enjoyable breakfast time, occasional gifts, always charming. Her warmth takes this hostel beyond good and into exceptional. Highly recommended!
Very helpful owner ... very good facilities. perfect location. Would highly recommend this hostel.
Although not a spacious hostel, it has a convenient location, comfortable beds, and a genuinely pleasant feeling among the travelers. The hostel stays true to its name; the owner is probably the most angelic, kind person I've met. She gave us plenty of tips for our Firenze stay and made us feel at home. She also cleans the hostel very thoroughly every day. Stay at My Friends!
Being made to feel at home.
All'a well once you understand that there 2,sets of numbers running on the same street (red numbers and black numbers).
Excellent disposition of Nadina, she's very helpful and attentive!!!
I was touched with the owners' great hospitality! 若いオーナー夫妻がとても親切でした。近いうちに、移転するようですが、是非次回もフィレンツェに行く際には利用したいと思います！
always needs to wait for the toilet
Nadine, the hostel owner was absolutely amazing to deal with! She was super friendly and really helped me get settled in. I usually don't stay in hostels at all, but I would definitely stay in this one again.
I've been travelling Europe for a while and this was the friendliest place I've stayed at! Great job!!
It's simple, everything was perfect! It's near the station, less than five minute from the center, lovely and quiet. Nadina is a wonderful person, she will do her best so that you spend a good stay! It's the perfect place if you want to meet new people from all around the world. Everyone was very respectful so no problem with the shared rooms. To conclued, i really felt like home and will come back with a great pleasure!! Nadina grazie mille per tutto!!!
What a charming hostel! Everything is quiet and so peacefull, the location is amazing (only 3 minutes from the train station). Nadina will welcome as real friends and will make the impossible to give you the best of Florence! Thanks a lot!
