Welcome to our hostel

On the outskirts of the city, our hostel in Florence offers groups the perfect mix of bustling city experience with the peace and quiet of a forest location.

Quite positively with the wow factor, our hostel is in a converted 15th century Renaissance villa. At the foot of the hill of Fiesole (a beautiful city famous for its archaeological site) and next to the swimming pool, the football stadium and the Nelson Mandela Forum, this really is a see it all, do it all hostel.

Priding themselves on their service to groups, the friendly hostel staff have managed to organise a number of tours and packages in Florence with local providers. And in many cases they have often negotiated a discount too.

So for art groups why not book up an excursion which takes in the old Florentine artisan shops, or for gastro groups, there are no end of cookery schools in the area which are perfect for learning delectable Italian culinary skills. For friends and family looking for more of a relaxing break, then be sure to check out a shopping tour which takes in the designer boutiques as well as the more affordable outlets.

So whether you just want to soak up the Tuscan sun at this unique hostel – make sure you check out the botanical garden overflowing with home-grown veg - or you want to spend your days sightseeing and soaking up the Italian culture, then this hostel is for you! Why not make an enquiry today for your group?
