Fabio gave us a map and some great tips on what to see and where to eat in the old town of Lucca - I had the best meal of my trip at Leo's! The hostel is inexpensive, rooms are spacious, towels provided, kitchen facilities available, close to the old town and supermarket. Downsides, there were a few loose tiles on the floor and the shower head had to be held as the wall bracket was broken in the shared bathroom. Wifi available, but someone took the password so we couldn't use it. Overall good.
The staffs are not there most of the time, so if you arrived off the scheduled time it could create problems if you don't have access to a phone. Also, the shared bathroom shower is a bit in rundown state.
The hostel at the time of visit was very quiet with only one other guest staying at the time of our group's visit. We were very kindly welcomed, given great information about Lucca and had a lovely 3 bed room perfect for our needs. The hostel is basic, but this was fine for me and my regular hostel-going friends. There is a great bar a few doors down which even the locals regard as the best in Lucca and the city itself is beautiful. lovely hostel, lovely stay, will go back again for sure!
Beds were comfortable. There didn't seem to be anyone else there. Shower bracket was broken. So it had to be held by hand. Fridge hadn't been defrosted for some time. Tea towels and cloths in kitchen were very dirty and obviously hadn't been changed for a long time. Supermarket was close by.
