Remember freshman year of college? Well, prepare yourself for flashbacks. The rooms here are tiny and the hostel packs beds on beds on beds. This is a money making enterprise and you can feel it. There's no homely touch here, just the sterile feel of an institution churning out revenue. On the positive side, there's tons of people around. That...

DON'T rent a room here - they are here to rob you of all your money owner doesn't know what's true and what's not and when I wanted to pay 3 nights he charged 4. charged an extra 100euros for nothing.

I spent three nights there with friends and we have been surprised by the low quality of this hostels. Rooms don't offer private wardrobe, bathrooms are incredibly small and dust is covering everything. Management is even worst, unusual rules such to leave the room between 10 and 2pm. Hostel manager did not want to give us keys to each one...

Beds didn't have lights or plugs, nearest plugs by the door and if the dorm was full there wouldn't be enough for everyone, we didn't have a problem though. Showers sometimes cold. Lockers are a bit stiff and I had trouble now opening mine. Other than this it's a great hostel, nice big common room area making it easy to...

I found BEDBUGS (Italian: CIMICI) in beds in two different rooms of this hostel Santa Monaca! They caused me terrible skinproblems!!! Although the staff was friendly in offering me another room and washing my clothes, I found again bedbugs in the new room. The staff had quickly inspected (while I was there) the bed and quickly cleaned, but bedbugs spread...

This is a very large hostel and we found it quite easy to meet other travellers in the large rooms and common areas! We found it had a really good vibe and we met a lot of nice people. The beds were ok and there were a lot of electrical outlets available in the room. There were lockers in the...

This hostel in two words: old and neglected. The rooms definitely could look better. They were clean but the furniture - beds & lockers - were old. Plus for nice, clean bathrooms and nice staff. It was relatively cheap but for such a low standard, I’d say still overpriced.

The location of the hostel is perfect, approximately 10min. of walking distance from Duomo de Santa Maria. Rooms are clean and sheets are being changed every day. Kitchen is ok, stove is a bit slow to boil the water and is a bit problematic when there are more people cooking. Supermarket is right next to the hostel. In any case,...

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.
