The hostel is in a beautiful building, previously a monastery, with loads of character. The location is perfect - there is easy access to the wall as well as the town. Bus # 18 takes you to the San Frediano stop from the station. The wifi was poor with hardly any signal available. The €3 breakfast is cheap but lacking.... More

The place's very central, just next to the city walls. Hostel was a great place to meet up with all sorts of travels coming from all over the globe. Sleeping with loads of strangers in one room for the very first time was a bit weird but also an adventure;-) The place itself was a monastery and the building is... More

is what this place has going for it. I believe that all that work here have every intention of making your stay pleasant, but some things let it down. We loved Lucca and it was easy to access from this excellently positioned hostel. There is no air conditioning, so my advice would be to not stay here during the humid... More

We stayed here, clean rooms, beautiful exterior, great location. Very weird aura though- hard to explain! Not much of a youth hostel, more Middle Aged. Breakfast was a pretty poor selection of toast but overall was a nice to stay

DIdn't spend much time here, but was pretty nice. The lobby feels like a hotel, which is sort of nice. Only wifi in the lobby which is annoying, and breakfast not included, but otherwise it's nice. There are HUGE common spaces spread around the place, which are cool. There's no much social interaction here, except maybe in the rooms. Lockers... More

Very happy and helpful staff, great breakfast! Lots of room, nice yard. Would stay here again. Be careful with the hot water, as it is very hot. Beds are a little squeaky. Rooms are very clean. Good place to stay with a family. Great price!!!

I stayed here 2 nights in March 2013 and was very happy with my choice of accomodation. My dorm bed was very comfortable, extra blankets were provided without asking and the place was clean and tidy. Lots of common area space, lockable storage in the rooms and Marco on the front desk was fabulous. Don't hesitate to stay here but... More

Lucca is a wonderful town, full of old buildings, Roman relics, tourists, locals, and lots of surprises. Highly recommended. I was at the Ostello Frediano in October with a traveling companion for six nights. We had the Puccini suite on the second level, which is two separate bedrooms, a separate bathroom and a large entry hall. Lots of room for... More

For the price, it is not a bad place to stay. It is very basic, which was to be expected, however, the bathrooms were not "sparkling" as many had described. I kept finding traces of previous guests (used dental floss and certain hairs in the bathroom). I gave it an "average" rating, because for what it is (a hostel with... More
