Hostel Santa Monaca Florence Reviews
Great location Oct 13, 2010
Location - the best thing about the place, very near to the Uffizi and the centre of the main sites, so you will save money on bus fares.
Staff - normal, friendly but nothing exceptional or awful either!
Value - one of the cheapest hostels in Florence, especially when you consider the amount of money you save by not having to take public transport to the city centre.
Bed and bathrooms - basic and not much space in the dorm rooms if you have a massive backpack or suitcase.
Overall - definitely for the budget backpacker. But then for the cheap price and great location, you cannot expect everything! I'd stay here if you plan to get up early for sites such as the Uffisi or Galleria dell'accademia and want to be there for 8.15-8.30am for when it opens.

Super cheap and beautiful place in Florence Dec 25, 2009
This was one of the best deals I could find throughout my West Europe trip. The rooms are super big, and yeah.. the during the summer it gets super hot, but you have everything you need. Free internet, cold showers, a kitchen and some really good bakeries and grocery shops right next door.
The staff is friendly and all the main sites are a couple of blocks away. The river is right there, and it's just amazing.
The beds weren't exactly comfortable, but come on! If you're traveling with a student budget, everything else balances it. Plus, they're ok.
