Ostello del Bigallo - Bigallo Hostel Reviews


This former monastery, dating back to the 13th century, called Antico Spedale del Bigallo, has been renovated and equipped with all the necessary comforts to offer modern travelers the same shelter and unique experience as once, in its original medieval atmosphere.

It has a beautiful garden and a panoramic terrace overlooking Florence, along with various common areas for meetings, workshops and other activities.

The Bigallo Hostel is also a place to meet new friends and get to know local people; a place where you can participate in the various events and cultural and social activities that we organize. It is also a lovely location to celebrate your wedding or anniversary in our Ceremony hall and in the Santa Maria di Fonteviva Chapel.

At our Bigallo Hostel, you can choose to stay in one of our 3 characteristic dormitories with shared bathrooms or prefer one of our 6 large double rooms, simply furnished and all with private bathroom for a total of 52 beds.
