I stayed here for one night, and I was able to book it the evening of. They were cheap, but the beds were good as well as the bathrooms. Towels and sheets were free! The location is good, 5 minute walk at most from the famous bridge and fairly easy to find. I definitely recommend it!

I was only staying 1 night but had no problems. Clean, not dirty, but not the cleanest ever. Rooms are very basic and entire place just kind of feels older and could use a cosmetic renovation. Again nothing bad, just not special. Hostel was quiet and everyone was nice. No real complaints from me, especially considering the low price. Great... More

The hostel needs a coat of paint. We did not really use the facilities so cannot comment on them. The room was very hot and only had one plug socket which was annoying when needing to charge electronic items - this was also turned off during the day and therefore you could not leave something charging. Overall though it was... More

This hostel is quite large, with a lot of narrow stairs (so not ideal if you've got a lot of heavy suitcases). But it's quite cozy. I stayed here with a friend, and we got a 6 bed female dormroom. There was quite a bit of dust underneath the beds and on top of the lockers (bring your own lock!),... More

Ostello santa Monaca was a good stay in Florence. Across the river from the duomo but we liked the walk into the centre. Clean rooms and good bathroom facilities. Wifi was only decent in the reception area. Helpful staff who recommended the best restaurant of my life in the santa spirito Piazza! Decent kitchen facilities that could get a bit... More

The only positives about this place is they had a kitchen available and wifi was also accessible n the rooms. I stayed in the 16bed female room and it was so hot and the fan they provided did almost nothing. Only one outlet near door for everyone to share. Female showers were on another floor on opposite ends of building.... More

The location was very convenient to the center of Florence, just a few blocks from the famous Ponte Vecchio (gold bridge) and a few more from the Uffizi Gallery; a short bus ride to the Central Train Station. It was clean and cozy*, with a wonderful lounge to hangout in and charge my electronics, also a secure room for luggage... More

We are an older couple and normally do not stay in hostels, however, we were meeting our young adult children in Florence for one night and wanted an inexpensive option for six people. Hostel Santa Monaca was the perfect find. It was very clean, had great wi-fi, a washing machine and dryer (which we really needed), and was in an... More

Very under-average hostel. Staff were rude and unfriendly and we were expected to make our own beds - this has happened once before during our two months of budget hostel travelling, especially as this hostel is more expensive than many we have stayed in. two of five female showers broken and no soap in toilets. Reccommend showering early morning/late evening... More

We stayed in Florence for two nights at Hostel Santa Monaca in a 22 bed mixed dorm. The dorm was better than expected, fairly large and had fans that cooled it down at night. It is a 15 minute walk to the main train station, which was great. The staff were always helpful when we asked them for questions. It's... More
