There’s quite simply nowhere in Florence with as many services for your buck, including seasonal indoor and outdoor swimming pools, all in a price bracket where you are usually fortunate to get an en-suite bathroom (and Plus has those, too). The best rooms in this large, well-equipped hostel are in the new wing, opened in 2013 and housing private rooms only. Units here are dressed in taupe and brown, with subtle uplighting and enough space (in some) for up to four beds. Room 657 is the only one with a terrace—it looks right at the center’s spires and domes. The only minuses: an unpicturesque building; and the location, between two busy roads (request a room facing the internal courtyard if you are a light sleeper).
