Hostelz.com's Review
Ostello Archi Rossi Hostel is decent, tidy, and clean. The environment, decoration, and everything is nice. Breakfast is also available in the hostel restaurant and included in your rate. There is neither a lockout nor a curfew. The higher bed rate is worth it for the comfy environment.

The Location

The hostel is located close to the main station Firenze S.M.N. -- less than ten minutes on foot. However please note that the numbering system of streets in Florence is not quite intuitive and the number actually jumps back and forth a lot, so do allow yourself a bit more time to look for the place (this applies to all hostels in Florence). As a result, some online map services, such as Google Map, mislocate the location of some hostels. Nearby you can find a convenience shop open until midnight. Major tourist spots are all within twenty minutes' walking distance.

Rooms and Bathrooms

Rooms are spacious and tidy. There is an individual door lock for every room. The privacy level is high -- you will have your own wardrobe with a lock as well as a computer with Wi-Fi inside the rooms. You can collect your personal Wi-Fi username and password at check-in. Bedsheets and a pillow are included in the price.

Bathrooms are available inside your room and in common area. The bathroom is clean and equipped with everything you need except towel, lotion, and shampoo. Hot water is almost instantaneous. However you may need to queue up a bit in morning as there is only one bathroom in a four-person room.

Common Spaces

The hostel has a TV room with restaurant and a computer area, but the high degree of privacy of this hostel does prevent different people from interacting a lot. Common areas are not located conveniently and thus not expected to be extensively used.

Summary

The hostel is a nice and tidy place, facilities and services are excellent, and you will have a lot of privacy here. However, it is not a perfect place for meeting people or partying.

4   A good hostel overall Good location, great buffet breakfast, nice garden area, guest computers.  , Canada ()
3   CLEAN and easy finding! It is well located and the rooms are good size and comfy! good Cost-Benefit realtion!  , MEXICO ()
4   Pretty good Over all pretty good. Shower and toilet a bit close though. Excellent breakfast, the best I've ever had in a hostel.  , Australia ()
3   Nice hostel Friendly, clean and pretty -- esp the Inner courtyard. But that exactly becomes annoying at Night when guests sit outside and chat. Every word echoes and sleeping is not possible. A Simple Solution would be to close the courtyard, say, at midnight. Yes, you could close the windows. But with almost 30•Celsius outside and all beds in the dorm full you would simply suffocate.  , Germany ()
4   Enjoyed my stay! Great amenities for price. Enjoyed the free meals. Friendly staff. Met nice travelers. Easy internet access. Walking tours leave right from lobby. In walking distance to train station, restaurants, shopping, and tourist sites.  , US ()
5  loved this hostel!!! staff is friendly, met some cool people here. good to have in room bathrooms here. it rained the whole time i was in florence, so it was nice and cool, but i'm not sure how the room would have been otherwise -- not sure if there was AC. the area was nice, far enough from the tourist center but still close enough to walk around and come back a couple times during the day. the walls are interesting, if you go you will know what i mean.  , United States ()
5   Awesome! This was by far my favourite hostel in Italy! First off, the rooms were really nice, with your own sink, huge lockers, and a computer with internet access. The washrooms were also really clean, and there were enough of them that you never had to wait more than five minutes to take a shower, no matter the time of day. The hostel is perfectly located like a five-minute walk from the train station too. If you're going to stay here you definitely have to do one, if not both, of the free walking tours. our guide was excellent, and you got to see a whole bunch of sites that you might have missed while walking around yourself. One top of all this, you get free breakfast and dinner! Which you get to pick off a menu with about eight different meal choices each time! It was amazing! Plus, there was a little garden and eating area outside which gave you the chance to meet a bunch of really cool people! Because of this hostel, Florence was one of my favourite stops on my trip! Ostello Archi Rossi is the place to stay in Florence!  , Canada ()
5   Great! Clean, friendly, nicely located (Florence is small anyway). The hostel is pretty social, but not too wild. The staff controls the noise in the courtyard at night to ensure the guests are not disturbed. I will go there the next time I am in Florence.  , Canadian ()
