Hostelworld says

Santa Monaca is one of the oldest and historical hostel in Florence. What make Santa Monaca recommendable is the amazing staff that run the place, the great central location in the traditional Santo Spirito quarter. For real backpackers who enjoy simplicity and history combined together this is the perfect place. Built in a Church frame this was an ex convent, you may be lucky and attend at one of the music event run in the annexed ex-church. Also what make this place special are Ida and Giuliano who are always trying to help every customer making you feel at home.

    Absolutely lovely staff, clean and roomie place. Good atmosphere making it extremely easy to meet new people from all over, and is very close to the lake making it almost in the center of everything. It is within walking distance of everything about 10 or 15 min.

    Superb

    This was a wonderful place to stay. If you are looking for the basics in backpacking across Europe, this is a great place. The bathrooms are clean and the accessibility to the city is great! But just be warned, if you are looking for a cushy stay, this isn’t it. I shared the 22 bed room and there are lots of noises. I am a heavy sleeper, so I did fine. Overall, great place!
