Stayed at Santa Monica with a friend for a total of 3 nights. We had read in previous reviews about the lack of air con but found it difficult to find 2 beds in a good location so decided that we would be fine. Yea the room was really hot and sweaty but baiting we couldn't handle. The rooms are... More

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... More

Overall it was alright. The rooms weren't great and the bathroom wasn't stocked with soap or towels. I thought it was okay, though, because the room was cheap. But then the key of another guest broke off in the lock to our room, locking us out of our dorm. The man working that night offered no solution to get into... More

My mom and I stayed for one night. It's a nice enough hostel, the staff was very friendly and the room (though full of a lot of people!) was pretty good (dry, beds were alright, clean). The bathrooms were clean too and not too packed. The area is also, just unbeatable. Close to everything. The only down side was the... More

This is the best hostel I’ve been to in the last 10 years. Why? 1. It’s super cheap. 2. It’s not hospital clean, but it’s clean enough to enjoy sleeping. The sheets are super clean though and super white. It smells a bit damp in general to the building structure, but it feels great to be in such a place... More

Santo Spirito / San Frediano
