Reviews (9.6 Wonderful)
Francesco a brilliant help and advertisement for Bigallo. Views unbeatable, food perfect, beer great,very clean &excellent value for money. Highly recommend as a bucket list for anyone travelling.
Amazing place with lots of history. Loved my stay and will recommend, but certainly doesn't feel like a hostel. Great experience tho, loved my stay!
It's the most amazing place in Florence! It's worth visiting! You should not skip it if you are in the area. The place can also be just visited, you don't need to sleep there. The staff was also extremely helpful, they offered us directions on how to get to Florence.
It is a great place to stay, pasta night is a must!!
My favourite hostel! I really love it here, this was my second time I stayed at Bigallo. Perfect location to relax, pick fruit in the garden, enjoy the view and go hiking. In the evening you can join the pasta night (really recommend it!).
