Lucca: Ostello S. Frediano

Via della Cavallerizza 12, Phone: 0583.469957

Reviewed by: Txteacher from TX, review #1487

When: June 2006

Incredible hostel experience in historical building.

Free Parking available, 500 meters from train station, less than 100 meters from bus

Check in: beautiful lobby, excellent staff

Price: 108 euros for a family of six, locked private bathroom but it was in the hallway. Sheets included, not towels (which were 1.25 euros). Breakfast and dinner not included but can be purchased.

You must be out of the hostel between 10:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. - - but you’re in Italy, why would you want to be in your room?

Midnight curfew

Room: immaculately clean, bright white walls, 3 bunks, table and chairs, and large wooden lockers to store your things if you are sharing a room.

Atmosphere: historical building, absolutely beautiful, giant sitting rooms with tables, chairs, sofas, television room, very quiet.

View: the city, a lovely cathedral

Recommendation: without a doubt would stay here again, but remember it is a hostel and may not be for everyone!
