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,...

It was a very nice stay, honest price in the center of venice, nice people that work there and a very nice bike rental deal that you should take. Bathrooms working with no greater problems. A nice small balcony between the bildings that some may call terrace. But overall a nice enjoyd stay

It's a cheap place, so don't expect too much. What I needed was just a bed for the night and shower, so it was OK. There is no AC, so it was quite hot. You get clean sheets, kitchen and bathroom are reasonably clean. Overall, it's a good, cheap hostel.

I read reviews on all my hostels but for some reason neglected to see that this one did not have AC. It's pretty warm in Florence in the summer months and in a 16 bed dorm with one window it gets insanely hot. I'm not picky or high maintenance but if I can't sleep because I'm drenched in my own...

Place was really simple but also a labyrinth, It wasn't decorative and rooms were more than simple, But its also cheap and you get a bed to sleep in, many services as you can wash your laundry and its close to the city center. Kitchen is a nice plus, its public so you may have to wait your turn. There...

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.
