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.

one of cleanest hostels I've stayed. I've read in previous reviews there may have bedbugs or there was cleaniness issue but it was spotless when I showed up. Social atmosphere a little lacking but that's more due to the people present then the building itself.
