My Friends Hostel Reviews

My Friends Hostel ... it is definitely what you make here! It is small and intimate but allows for you to meet people and make amazing friends! And the owner, Nadina, is one of the most amazing people you will ever meet!

The Location

My Friends Hostel is located a five-minute walk from the Santa Maria Novella train station, so it is easy to get to on arrival. It is also only a ten-minute walk down the street to the Duomo at the centre of the city, making it a perfect location from which to explore the city.

Rooms and Bathrooms

The rooms here are a combination of dorm beds with bunks and with some single beds. The beds are comfortable, clean, and warm to sleep in. You get a towel to use during your stay, which is nice too.

There are three bathrooms, all with toilet and great showers, throughout the hostel. They are cleaned every day. They also keep some spare toiletries in the bathroom in case you have run out of shampoo, toothpaste, or bodywash -- it's all there for you to use.

Common Spaces

While there is not a large area for socialising, there is an area in the hall outside the kitchen with a couple of tables and charging points. Nadina will make you breakfast in the morning and you can eat it here. In the evenings, people also hang out here.

It is next door to the kitchen, which is basic and quite small but has a microwave, kettle, and electric hotplate you can use and a fridge -- if you want to cook meals, you can do so to cut your costs. This whole area, being a part of a thoroughfare, means that you are always meeting people.


This hostel has been well thought out with love. What really makes the place is Nadina! She is one of the most kind and caring humans you will ever meet and goes above and beyond for the people staying here. You really do feel like you are a part of a home instead of a hostel. As she is on her own working here, she is usually about during the day, but if you need to check in late or early, let her know and she will arrange things for you. Honestly, we cannot recommend this hostel enough!
