it was my first accommodation in italy – florence to be exact! Hostel Archi Rossi had a few floors and it was obvious that lots of backpackers had stayed there – probably for it’s good price an also for it’s abundance of rooms. they have a few floors of rooms and i shared my room after my long travels with a group of korean girls. for some reason… there were lots of korean backpackers staying at this hostel. must be some good word of mouth !
they had a nice patio area and a cafeteria that served buffet style breakfast.
i didn’t have much time to browse around this hostel, but from the few hours i stayed their (mostly sleeping) i thought it was pretty good for its money’s worth. i got in pretty late the night before, and there were still people at the front desk to help me out.
