Lonely Planet review
Slap-bang in the centre of walled Lucca, inside a historic building, hostellers won't get closer to the action than this. Top notch in comfort and service, this HI-affiliated hostel with 141 beds in voluminous rooms is serviced with a bar and grandiose dining room (breakfast €5, lunch or dinner €11). Non-HI members can buy a welcome stamp for €2.
Our independent authors have visited Ostello San Frediano and selected this as one of our recommended hostels in Lucca.
