Santa Maria Novella
Santa Maria Novella train station welcomes the majority of the people arriving in Florence, which might explain the hectic pace. Commuters and tourists come across the constant hustle and bustle of the station before exiting, taking a few steps and stopping amazed in Piazza di Santa Maria Novella. It is impossible not to admire the the square, housing one of the most charming basilicas in Florence. The area has plenty of local spots to taste Tuscan specialties, but don’t stop in the main streets alone; the narrower side streets always ensure satisfaction. The huge Parco Delle Cascine provides a solution to the need for a green area as well as a historic welcome in the form of a bronze statue of King Vittorio Emanuele II riding a horse.

CONs:
-It's not in the very centre of Firenze (it's actually in a residential area), although the main train station is a less-than-10-minute walk from the hostel.
-Although it's in a residential area, it's not quiet at night because the train tracks run just beside the building.

This hostel is one you should avoid if you can. It's not the worst, but it's just, odd...

The hostel consists of rooms spread across 3 seperate buildings which have different key sets and WiFi passwords. For our group of 5 spread across two buildings, this was annoying and jarri

I would not stay here unless you want to be covered from head to toe in bed bugs bites. Paid for a private room. One bed didn't even have a sheet/blanket or pillow, no air conditioning in 30 degree heat. Whole place smelt of sewage. Requested refund but they told us we had mosqui

On the first day when I and my friend arrived the accommodation near to the central station, we tackled the problem of checking in, since the check in time there is not flexible. We then walked in New Ostel and stayed for a night. The next day when we tried to contact the host

"choose rooms on the remote building, ground floor ; they got a very nice old garden. If you are a group you will definitely chill in it ."
"Ask to actually be IN the hostel, not the building across the road. I think the rooms were a lot nicer in the actual hostel building."
"Carry your own handwash!!"
