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,...

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

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...

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...

“Book early even when doing online booking. Private rooms probably best if a couple. Lots and lots of stairs so request lower floors if needed prior to arriving.”
