Lonely Planet review
Slap-bang in the centre of walled Lucca, inside a staggeringly historic building, hostellers won't get closer to the action than this. Top notch in comfort and service, this Hostelling International–affiliated hostel with 141 beds in voluminous rooms is serviced with a bar and grandiose dining room (breakfast €3, lunch or dinner €11). Non-HI members can join on the spot for €2 per year.
Our independent authors have visited Ostello San Frediano and selected this as one of our recommended hostels in Lucca.
Description provided by property
The Youth Hostel San Frediano is located in the very heart of the old town. It's a beautiful building, recently restored and can host up to 140 people in comfortable rooms disposed on 3 floors. It also has a restaurant where breakfast and dinner are served, as well as garden with an amazing view to the ancient city walls.
During your stay, you can relax in one of our 4 large common rooms, watching tv or reading a book and enjoy the athmosphere of a peaceful place. Otherwise you can visit the town and its major interesting landmarks, which are just a short walk away.
Lucca is a perfect base for touring all around Tuscany, being at a short distance from Florence, Pisa, Viareggio and the coast, Siena and San Gimignano.
