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

The hostel closed between 10am and 2pm which was annoying. The stair were narrow and small so it was difficult with luggage. There wasn't a great atmosphere either unfortunately. I felt unsafe in the bunk beds. I had to use a plastic stool to get to the top bunk which didn't have railings. There was only one main light in... More

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
