Place was really simple but also a labyrinth, It wasn't decorative and rooms were more than simple, But its also cheap and you get a bed to sleep in, many services as you can wash your laundry and its close to the city center. Kitchen is a nice plus, its public so you may have to wait your turn. There...

Overall it was alright. The rooms weren't great and the bathroom wasn't stocked with soap or towels. I thought it was okay, though, because the room was cheap. But then the key of another guest broke off in the lock to our room, locking us out of our dorm. The man working that night offered no solution to get into...

1) It's a hostel 2) The rooms are mixed dorms The service is good, staff quite friendly. The guy at the reception looks like 'will smith'. And thats a plus or me. :D The rooms, linen, and bathroom were clean. The dorm mates we had were friendly too. We had 5 bunk-beds (= 10 beds) in our room, and one...

My mom and I stayed for one night. It's a nice enough hostel, the staff was very friendly and the room (though full of a lot of people!) was pretty good (dry, beds were alright, clean). The bathrooms were clean too and not too packed. The area is also, just unbeatable. Close to everything. The only down side was the...

This is the best hostel I’ve been to in the last 10 years. Why? 1. It’s super cheap. 2. It’s not hospital clean, but it’s clean enough to enjoy sleeping. The sheets are super clean though and super white. It smells a bit damp in general to the building structure, but it feels great to be in such a place...

This hostel a great location, close to all historical places, there are nice restaurants near it. There is a supermarket just next to the hostel. Moreover, the hostel is very clean and they give a towel for free :) Recommend!

About as average a hostel as you can imagine. Okay rooms, okay bathroom, okay atmosphere. Wifi is pathetic. Like seriously pathetic. The roof terrace is an absolute joke. It's literally big enough for one table and like five people to sit at it and that's a squeeze. Florence is a very walkable city so you'll find getting around the place...

It was not the best place to stay, very average. Some of the things I like is that there is someone at reception 24/7, they are informative about events and activities however the place does not justify the price. Its extremely hot in summer, and there is very little personal space, there is tooooo many beds per room so it...

I was travelling around Italy with my friend this summer and stayed in Hostel Santa Monaca for 3 nights. This hostel has great staff, who are very helpful and so friendly! They gave us good advice on the restaurants that we should go eat to, that way we found a restaurant that only locals knew about and the pasta dish...

Santo Spirito / San Frediano
A warm evening with a cocktail in your hand and great company is the ideal way to experience Piazza Santo Spirito; the area is busiest at sunset for happy hour.
