Reviewed 22 April 2014 via mobile

Right down the street from a bus stop to the train station or to poggiponsi where you can get to siena or San gimignano. They also give you a decent breakfast for free every morning and a free welcome drink. Rooms are clean and mattresses are comfortable.

It is very difficult to expose the satisfaction and gratification of a good experience into words, and thus emplore those experiences to that of a stranger reading a review. As Brits one individual negative action can leave a bitter/sour after taste and repress the memories of the indigenous romance of a beautiful place. Florence, the Flower of Italy, epitomises Beauty and Tranquility to the extent of it's name, Firenze.

Tasso, just outside the original City Walls is home to the true Flowers within a Garden of Eden. The Young and Vibrant Team exposed Firenze to us in true Perfection. It is very difficult to exume our thankfullness for the World we have to leave behind. Lorenzo and Romina (and their team) were exceptional in every way and managed to take the "S" out of Hostel, yet keep the Intimacy of a family run Outlet. Table reservations, outreach recommendations and the supply of local Oil's and Wine's were just a few of their services. We ate like Italians, Drank the finest of Chianti wines and Partied with Florentines, who provided Firenze, in all it's beauty to the Palm of our hands. We Leave Italy having not received Service from a family business, but from Exceptionally Good Friends. Will we return to Tasso? I truly believe Tasso will never leave us! See you in September Guys!

Tasso Hostel: is a lovely, unique and frienldy place in the center of Florence. We've booked a room during our visit for the fashion fair this winter. What we can say, we're more than positive surprised about this nice location, which alowed us to meet local pep's as well as guests and staff in a nice open space including bar, which is the center heart of the hostal. The rooms are nice and clean, reduced but with comfort. Showers and toilettes are super clean and a large kitchen for cooking your meal with friends is there as well (it's like coming home to mama's kitchen table).
The whole concept of the hostal is a great idea and a fantastic place to stay, if you're open to meet other peoples from around the globe as well at the weekends to join a concert or a party in the theatre room. The stuff which is very friendly, speeking fluently english, always stays at your side, if you need any informations and recommendations in matter where to eat, going out, what to visit and to discover in Florence and surounding. We congratulate the young team for their 1st year since opening the Tasso and from the bottom of our hearts we wish them the very best for the future.
See you definitely soon!

Cool staff, amazing atmosphere and great coffee for breakfast :)
It's in a walking distance from the city centre in a quiet neighbourhood. Though we arrived pretty late the personnel welcomed us very friendly. There was some kind of private party going on in the lounge area so it was fun to have our welcome drink among the locals. The interior of the hostel is awesome.
Rooms are spacious and clean. However it is the first my seen hostel where you do not get the key to your room :D but it was not a problem for us. All the valuable stuff can be placed in a locked storage in the room.
Overall, it's an exceptional hostel I will never forget.

Ostello Tasso is one of these rare finds, which you will love. First of all, it's a hostel, not a hotel.
Tasso has such a nice atmosphere. Great service. Nice reduced rooms. Super clean and stylish. Great bar. Good drinks. Great coffee. Great outdoor spatio. Plenty of room to relax everywhere. Very, very friendly owner and staff. Helpful and willing to share THE GOOD places (local know-how): means best restaurants, lowest taxi fares to the airport, best times when visiting the big museums, advises for shops, etc. They know everybody and everything.
Tasso sometimes also hosts own cultural events. It's also a place where local crowd meet in the evening. It's a place where you'll find easy acess to local people.

I can't wait to go there again. For sure, I won't book any other place in Florence for future trips. Tasso has me, I highly recommend this place, because it will upgrade your Florence visit.

I stayed at Tasso hostel in Florence for the week in December before New Year. The hostel is a 20 mins walk from the main station in Florence - located in a quiet safe street. Upon arrival we were given a very warm welcome and a complimentary drink. Before we even saw the rooms we were overwhelmed by the lovely staff, the unique decor and the charming atmosphere at Tasso. The common area often hosted music events or on quieter evenings films were shown. It easy to meet other travellers and people from Florence who came to Tasso for the events being hosted. At the same time there was plenty of places to go and sit quietly.

Rooms were comfortable and bathrooms were clean with really good showers (and lots of them). The breakfast was great. Coffee of your choice, juice, croissant and french toast served in the lovely common area (usually with great background music).

I have travelled and stayed in many hostels in Europe and further afield and this is the best yet. I will definitely return.
