If you spend the whole day outside observing the city and come here only to have shower and sleep, the place is Ok. The bathrooms are not very clean and so is the kitchen. It is noisy outside indeed, but if you are tired after a long day of walking this won't be a problem. In general, I wouldn't recommend... More

I visited this place with my friend and when we reached the receptionist said that the room in that building were full and so we will be staying in another building 4 blocks away. This one had a room share with another guy who wasn't there when we arrived. Now the problem was that there were no lockers available in... More

I was incredibly skeptical about this place at first. Two of my friends and I had booked last minute and had managed to claim a three-person room for €13.50 each per night. It took us a while to find it (we were fairly new to Italy at the time and so weren't expecting to search for just a doorway and... More

While location is fantastic, smack in the middle of Florence and a few strides away from the best attractions and whatnot, it does have downsides. First, security. Doors to the rooms do not lock. Second, it is too crowded. Beds are close together and space is TIGHT. Third, at night it is VERY noisy. Do NOT expect a good night's... More

I definitely had a very poor sleep during my 3 night stay. The street where the hostel is located is very loud, specially during the weekends and early mornings (due to restaurants deliveries). There is not a place to hang around. Also, the room doors don't lock, they just close. The Wifi worked pretty well. The location is pretty centric.... More

Stayed here for two nights in the week just been. Facilities are very old and run down, beds, bathrooms, kitchen, but I guess you can't expect much when you are going cheap. It just isn't in the same league as hostels which are decked out for the modern traveller. Also in a very noisy street location, so not the best... More

Our first turn-off with this hostel was the complete lack of signage- fortunately a nearby hotel doorman pointed us to the right building (clearly it wasn't the first time he had been asked). The hostel itself was dilapidated at best. The lack of security was our main concern- we specifically checked for luggage storage lockers before booking and those were... More

DO NOT STAY HERE! I planned on staying here for 3 nights as the location is excellent but in the end, far from worth the price. The staff was unfriendly and for the most part non existent (1 staff member for 1 hour between Friday and Saturday), the place is dirty and not even the toaster worked and as you... More

Staying in Santa Croce

Neighborhood Profile
Santa Croce
Stop and stare at the beauty and symmetry of the Basilica of Santa Croce any time day or night. Unraveling around it are a number of architectural and artistic masterpieces, from the Synagogue to the Central National Library.
