The hostel already boasts an indoor swimming pool that has been a major feature since opening its doors in 2008. With the hostel about to embark on a fifth season the addition of the new outdoor pool will no doubt please guests that are looking at spending a few days in the rennaissance city during the peak of Summer.
The pool will be accompanied by a licensed bar that will have drinks and basic food on sale. It will stay open throughout the summer with a September closure most likely. The indoor pool will be closed during this time re-opening for the Winter. There will be no extra charge for usage of the pool as guests will have it included as part of their room charge.
The PLUS hostel chain has indoor swimming pools at its other properties in Berlin and Prague, though Florence will be the first property in the chain that will have both an indoor and outdoor pool.
