The Hostelz.com 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.

Great hostel option in Florence
Great location, super close to train station and sights. Very clean. Nice atmosphere. Amazing breakfast! Tons of options in the buffet, from beans and eggs to tiramisu! Good coffee from machines with choices of espresso drinks. Good price for Florence. Downsides -- need to pay for towel and provide own soap, showers tended to flood bathroom. Access to fridge but not kitchen facilities. And a comfy lounge area might have been nice (although dining area and outdoor terraces were available).

An Overpriced Barracks
Liked -- Very close to the train station, near the old town, excellent breakfast (if you get up early enough for it), huge lockers, an elevator. Disliked -- Slow Wi-Fi, lots of basics missing from the bathrooms (soap, hand towels), mostly unfriendly staff who don't tell you anything about the city or even the hostel itself, overpriced, very impersonal, breakfast basically ends at 9. Overall -- Definitely wouldn't stay here again. There have to be better options in the city.

Pretty good
Over all pretty good. Shower and toilet a bit close though. Excellent breakfast, the best I've ever had in a hostel.

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.

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.
