I booked a private room w/ WC, facilities were good and very clean. The kitchen utensils were kind of worn out but they were OK. The staff is small but they are very kind, they gave me a map along with information about the city. If you want to stay outside the city walls the location is pretty good. It's a 10 min walk from the train station and from the city centre and it is right next to a supermarket.
Conveniently located just outside the city wall, so easy access to the center of town. The room (twin) was spacious and clean. The bathroom was clean but the kitchen very basic with items for cooking missing and things not very clean. The staff was very friendly and when we wanted to open a bottle of wine to toast my birthday and found the corkscrew missing, he went to his house to get one! Was very much appreciated.
Appreciated map and suggestions of places to visit; host was very friendly. Room was good size and very comfortable.
The accommodation is well situated with easy access to the old city, supermarket, train station, chemist, sports clubs etc.

Was more like staying in our own apartment. There was no lift but the owners helped us with our suitcase. The hostel isn't very attractive from the outside but was very nice inside. There is a supermarket right next to the hostel and kitchen was available to use. Only 5 minute walk to the walled part of Lucca and a 15 minute walk to the train station.
We arrived around 8 pm and the owner was there to welcome us and give us some tips about where to eat etc. The place is located a 10-15 minute walk to the old town, but that was fine. The room was clean and the place had all the basics, including towels and a fan, although it was still very warm in the room. The supermarket is very close by. Only downside was the kitchen which wasn't very clean. I would stay here again (and eat out).
We had a pleasant stay here. Fabio, the owner, was so lovely and was happy to answer any questions we had. He made us feel very welcome. The only downside is that it is *just* outside of town which meant about a 10-15 minute walk to the old town. This wasn't too much of an issue for us but if you have heavy baggage and are travelling without a car it is quite a walk from the train station. The rooms were clean and the place had all the basics. The wifi was average. I would stay here again!
Very close to the train station and Porta Elisa, which gives access to the historical city center. Very helpful host who recommended us what we should visit and best restaurants in Lucca. The day we left, we were allowed to keep our luggage inside Sogni d´Oro, what allowed us to take a train and visit Pistoia
