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... More

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... More

Nice and clean, friendly staff, four showers and toilets per wash room so I never had to queue, good location, across the river 10/15 minutes form the centre. No air con and one fan so the four bed dorm was like a sauna. The street outside was very very noisy around 5 in the morning. It sounded like glass bins... More

Likes : this hostel was value for money, the staff were very friendly and very helpful and the hostel itself was very clean. We found it to be in a great location as it was very easy to walk to the city centre and was very convenient when getting buses to the train station. I would recommend this hostel and... More

The hostel is quite nice. Its big, it has nice showers, the staff is quite good. I tought that some areas of the hostel had some weird smell, but I think its just me. The common areas are really big, the kitchen looked really nice and the dinner room was colder than the rest of the hostel. What I disliked... More

It's midsummer and there is no air conditioning. It is somehow hotter inside than outside especially at night. It's impossible to sleep. The men's bathrooms are disgusting and the wifi is basically nonexistent. Worst hostel I've visited.

Overall, the hostel is in a nice location and the facilities are okay too. It has a sitting area with tables, you can do some basic cooking and laundry. -however, the rooms get awfully hot and there is no air conditioning. If you want to sleep at all, do not book this hostel! Talked to other travelers and they all... More

I liked this hostel, it's worth your money. It's a 10 - 15 minute walk to the city centre and Piazzale Michelangelo, there's a good kitchen and dining area. The building is old fashioned so the stairs are narrow but that can't be helped. However I had a pretty poor night's sleep as the second storey room I was in... More

It is clean and the rooms have 6 beds in them. It is a mile walk from the main train station. It is in a good location and has a number of good places to eat nearby. The staff is friendly and was helpful in getting information on visiting the Chiant/Tuscany region.

Pros: It is in a good location, not so far away from the center (around 15 min walk tops). The rooms are big, and there are lockers, as well as a kitchen and fridge to store your food. Plus there is a supermarket next door from the hostel. Cons: The dorm I was in was really big and thus there... More

Staying in Santo Spirito / San Frediano

Neighborhood Profile
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. Visitors cannot hide their astonishment sitting on the staircase under the Basilica of Santo Spirito, and they cannot help but stare at the architectural masterpieces like Bianca Cappello House, Fontana dello Sprone and San Frediano in Cestello and Santa Maria delle Carmine churches. Tourists and Florentines alike join up in the area between Santo Spirito and San Frediano, connecting the Tuscan soul to the international spirit permeating the city.
