-Nice location, 3 minutes from the train station -Definitely one of the nicest staff I've never met, very helpful
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.
That I didn't have time to stay longer!
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.
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.
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.
Small bathroom, so a little bit crowded in the morning but its okay. Service coverd everything
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.
It is cosy and clean, well located in the centre especially near the train station. The staffs are quite nice and helpful, I will propose to others strongly
The staff, Nadina, was super kind. She's just wonderful. I feel really comfort here.
Bathroom is not enough, as it has only 2 bathrooms. Except this, everything was perfect.
Nadina is an amazing host, she provided everything we needed, she was quite nice and helpful, she show me all of the places around with a map and also gave directions to the hostel before i arrived. Wifi was working perfectly, everything was clean, breakfast was served by Nadina and also was perfect. The guests were really nice too. And somehow you feel safe. I strongly recommend this place, cannot be any better.
I loved the location and how close it was to the station and the centre. The owners go to great lengths to make you feel comfortable. They gave me good tips when to eat not to spend a fortune.
Sometimes they was a queue for the bathroom especially in the morning.
The owner of the hostel is very friendly. She is very thoughtful and intresting beautiful girl. Always pay attention to the guests.
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!
