My Friends is absolutely great and I definitely recommend it! A really cozy and confortable hostel. Clean sheets and towels - provided for free. Individual lockers inside the dorms. The common area is perfect to meet people from the entire world - and I've made a few friends during my stay! But the best part: the amazing staff! Thank you so much, Nadina (she's awesome, trust me)! I had a great time in Firenze. Grazie mille, danke schoen!

Nadina, who runs the hostel, makes this place the place it is. She is super friendly and always willing to help. The beds are amazing comfortable and the history of the building is very cool itself. It's not everyday you get to stay in an 800 year old building and eat breakfast off of a 400 year old table.

The breakfast was average, but since it was already included in the price it was ok!
The location was excellent, near the train station. Very clean and comfortable. Good wifi and always hot showers. But what really makes this hostel so special is the owner, who goes out of her way to give recommendations of things to do/ answers any questions about anything in Florence and also gives advice on onward transport. She's always really cheerful and friendly and it seems like nothing is to much to ask!

Mixed room. Luckily my room is quiet and the guy sharing with me is quite nice. We are both Asians and backpackers. Haha~
The lord is very nice. She will give you a map and useful recommendations. The location is quite great. It's only 5 minutes' walk to the railway station. Satisfactory breakfast and fast Wi-Fi.

Would have liked to stay longer here. :(
Nadia was a great hostess and offered me wine, coffee/tea, a blood orange, and some cake when I arrived. Best part was that she has a bunch of great suggestions for food and main attractions. The local eat around the corner she suggested had great trippe and she knew some really awesome local eatas + gelato places. Would definitely come again! Great location (right next to the train station), though it's a bit further from the main attractions. Breakfast is pretty typical: jam/butter, crossaint, toast, coffee/tea, juice/milk. But... Nadia will serve breakfast if you're up at ~9 and don't want to help yourself.

I can't even tell you enough. I made some of the best friends I have made on my travels here! Not only that but I made a friend in Nadina. She is the sweetest most accomodating person I have ever had the pleasure of staying with. Make your time in Florence a memorable one by staying here. But remember - go ahead and try and make friends with your roomies! They could be your friends for life.

The hostel owner, Nadine, is fantastic! She offered me wine and was extremely knowledgeable about Florence. The location is perfect very close to the Duomo and train station. One of the best hostels I have ever stayed in.
March 13, 2015
The light was a little bit dark and there are just two bathrooms.
Specially the staff(Nadina) helped me a lot kindly! Even if I had to check out really late, she let me keep my luggage which was really helpful!
March 10, 2015
I only stayed at My Friends for one night and I wished I stayed more! The Staff, Nadina is the nicest person I ever met and the location was superb! BTW, Nadina recommended all the important sights, best gelaterias and delicious restaurants!
March 1, 2015
-Nice location, 3 minutes from the train station -Definitely one of the nicest staff I've never met, very helpful

That I didn't have time to stay longer!
Nadina is the kindest Hostel owner possible! She stayed around 2 hours after reception to check my group in (our flight was delayed), she provided us with great information on the best restaurants, she made great free breakfasts each morning, and she wouldn't let me leave without a bottle of homemade wine and biscuits for the next leg of my journey. The hostel has a great atmosphere of young, happy travelers. There is free wifi, a safe by each bed, and a computer to use.

Very close at main station. Breakfast is very great. Most of all, reception is perfectly kind. She treats me like a family!! I really want to go there again.
January 29, 2015
Just perfect! Nadina is the best host I've ever seen. Although I arrive late at night she managed to check me in and provided plenty of useful information in Florence, nice and cheap restaurants nearby, places of interests, travel trips, etc. And these are all marked clearly ini a map. The most attractive point is Nadina herself, so generous and easygoing, one of the best personality I've ever seen and makes me feel just like home. Serve yourself in the kitchen for the breakfast in a quiet morning is a perfect experience. As the name of the place, Nadina is MY FRIENDS rather than a host.

Small bathroom, so a little bit crowded in the morning but its okay. Service coverd everything
I stayed there for 2 days and i felt like i was at home although the facilities were a bit old and bathroom was small. But i doesn't matter if you have a conversation with Nadina. And i met some good people there and it was cool. Thank you for your service, Nadina.

Best hostel ever!! Florence is a beautiful city and My friend's hostel makes it even more beautiful for you. It is a small, warm and a cosy place in which it is so easy to make new friends. However, in order not to disturb sleeping guests, it is forbidden to sit in the public place and talk as a group until late. Just bear this in mind and behave accordingly cause you wouldn't want to put lovely Nadina in a difficult situation. Wifi connection is good. Very clean hostel. Very comfortable beds. Walking from SMN station takes you 1-2 mins. I observed no queue for bathroom usage during my stay. Nadina prepares a lovely breakfast tray for each guest. She also offers you drink (coffee, cappucino, wine..) whenever she can. She treats you as a friend and you indeed become friends. She also gives you a good map with marked points where you should visit or find cheap food/gelato. If I didn't have that map (with every street shown) I'm sure I wouldn't take the half of the pleasure I took from my stay in Firenze. Thanks to My Friend's Hostel and beautiful Nadina, Firenze is one of my favourite cities now and I definitely want to come back.
