Friendly staff, clean rooms with light blankets and towels, drinks & snack machine in the foyer and 'free' wlan.
Distance from train station seemed more than "900 meters", but still within walking distance.

Great location, clean, staff was helpful but always too busy and couldn't assist some things. Also, breakfast should be free, but it was all you can eat buffet for 6 euros, which isnt too bad.

It seems as though every backpacker in Florence stays at Plus Hostel. With 400 beds, they were full everyday that we were there. If you want to stay here, make sure to book online. They give preference to those booking online, even if you are already staying there, you will need to extend your stay online. There is a nice pool to
hang out by and a rooftop terrace. The wifi is good but unfortunately there is no communal cooking and there are signs that say no outside food or beverage is allowed in the dinning hall. In the evenings, they have events such as wet t-shirt competitions. The rooms are large with lockers that fit big backpacks. One major downside is that the AC system is controlled by the front desk. There is only one accessible lift from the lobby that was really slow and broke twice while we were there. The unfortunate part about it being so big is that no one really cares about you... We had to walk four flights of stairs to the front desk three times one night because the AC had shut off in the room and the person at the front desk was irritated with us wanting to keep the AC on all night when it was around 35 degrees outside.

Good place if you want to have fun. Disco every night until about 12.30 which can b noisy if you're trying to get to sleep. Loads of tours available and bike rental etc at reasonable price. Staff really friendly

I have mixed feelings with this hostel. On one hand, it offers great value for the money, providing nicer accomodations than most such as a pool, sauna, fridge in the room, etc, but on the other hand it falls short on the basics (you have to make your own bed, for example; no towels are provided, there is no heating in the room). Staff is friendly but a bit disorganized (I was asked to pay when I checked-out - funny considering that I had already payed in advance at check-in; it wasn't such a big deal and it was promptly solved, but it reveals poor administration practices). Also, as is sadly usual at hostels, wifi doesn't work well at higher floors (I had to go down to the lounge/reception to get a strong signal). Overall, is a nice (and cheap) experience for young "backpacker" types, but if you're looking for a more "romantic" experience, you are better off paying something extra elsewhere for more sophistication.

They really got almost all right. Building is a big ex hotel, so five floors, sw pool,gym, bars etc.Internet. Good food for a normal price.Staff very helpfull. Two minuses:
room is ready by 3pm and you have to check out by 10 am so you loose few good hours, and few drunk young people at 4am loudly sharing their life stories on corridor, wether you want to hear them or not. Don't take a room next to a vending machine.
