this place far exceeded our expectations. when we read the description and saw the price, we were expecting something quite austere. the very second we saw the reception area which was like that of a 2 or 3 star hotel, we knew we were in for something good. the room (the private family one with ensuite bathroom) was clean and...

Great location right by the city walls of Lucca. Friendly and helpful staff, clean rooms. The room I was in had 4 bunkbeds (8 beds total). Large lockers in the rooms. Plenty of common room space.

This is a hostel, but we stayed in a double room with a bathroom. It was very clean and we had a 9 foot window that looked out to the top of the wall that surrounds Lucca. The bathroom had a hair dryer and a shower that was hot with water pressure. You have to walk across town (or take...
