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.

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!).
