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.

    Everything fine. I booked for a 10 bed room but finally ended up in an 18 bed room. But this was ok because only the half of beds are opened because of COVID situation.

    Great price and great location! Staff were very friendly at the front desk and very helpful, not sure if it’s the best for solo travellers who are looking to make friends as I found it harder than other hostels, other wise would definitely recommend if you are looking for a cheap place to stay in a good location :)

    Would definitely recommend this hostel. Staff are very helpful and friendly. Place is clean, easy to access, not too far from bus stations, and has grocery stores nearby. Kitchen is well equipped to cook yourself, but the guests weren’t very clean while I was there and left things dirty all the time. Not the hostels fault. Bed and pillows were mediocrely comfortable. They’ve got a variety of things you can purchase like toiletries etc, for fair prices. I’d stay again.

    I really liked this Hostel! My favorite part was the location, it was very close to everything. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms and common areas were also cleaned regularly. The atmosphere was great and I made friends with other backpackers in my dorm and common areas very easily!

    Good hostel. The dorms are extremely large- you will have a lot of roommates. Good community kitchen and the market next door is ver convenient. They have one washer/dryer in the kitchen that you can pay to do laundry at but I suggest going to a laundromat in the area instead. Our A/C broke after the first night and the room was directly above an opera house which made things very interesting but it was and experience nonetheless. Quite a far walk from the train station.

    This hostel was in a great location and very easy to get around on foot. The bathrooms were big and shared but cleaned everyday for a few hours which was nice because you knew they were getting the attention they needed. There wasn’t too many common spaces but a small shared balcony but still easy to meet people. Someone threw up in our room but the staff was extremely helpful with cleaning it and making sure it didn’t smell while we slept. Would recommend.

    The hostel is well situated if you don't mind walking to the other side of the river. It is about 15 minutes from the train station/main central attractions. The staff was welcoming and helpful in pointing out a laundromat (there are a few around the hostel). Our private room had a/c and there were a lot of bathrooms nearby so you never had to wait for people. Kitchen and common area seemed clean and there were vending machines. Overall a good simple stay in an interesting neighbourhood
