The Antico Spedale del Bigallo is a medieval building from 1200 renovated and equipped with the necessary amenities to ensure, as then, a shelter, a unique experience of travel.
The Bigallo hostel, with its 52 seats beds in charming rooms and dormitories, we offer you the opportunity to stay in the hills south of Florence, immersed in a unique natural environment and closely linked to the territory and its peculiarities and traditions .
To be together with your friends or with your family, we offer you our great dorm rooms, bright and comfortable, with 5 or 8 beds each. Local craftsmen have designed the furniture inspired by the typical Renaissance beds taken from the paintings of that age.



If you’re arriving by train you’ll have to take 2 buses to reach our hostel (bus 23a and then bus 24). Follow these steps to make the journey to our hostel easier :) 1) At first you have to reach Piazza Indipendenza (to take bus nr. 23a). Once you arrive at Santa Maria Novella train station take the exit on your left. You can go to Piazza Indipendenza on foot (5 minutes along Via Nazionale) or by bus (bus lines n.6 11 14 17... you can find them just outside the railway station after crossing the first road). 2) From Piazza Indipendenza take bus Nr. 23a (in direction to “Sorgane”) and get off at the bus stop “Sorgane Via Roma”. This bus journey will take up to 30 minutes and you will now find yourself at a roundabout called Piazza Rodolico. 3) At this roundabout you will find the bus stop for bus nr. 24 about 10 metres away from you. 4) Take bus nr. 24 in direction to “Grassina” and get off at the stop “Roma 21”. This bus journey will take less than 10 minutes and is going uphill all the way. Let the bus driver know that you’re going to Bigallo and he will help you to get off at the right stop. 5) You have almost made it to our hostel now! From bus stop Roma 21 you have to walk up the steep hill for about 15 minutes and you will be rewarded with amazing views from our hostel :-)
