Eine fantastische Jugendherberge in einem ehemaligen Klostergebäude (oder Kirchengebäude) direkt in der Altstadt von Lucca. Das Frühstück hat eine gute Auswahl, wenn man aber abends in dem dazugehörigen Lokal essen möchte, gibt es zwar einen kleinen Rabatt, ist aber trotzdem nicht günstig. Es gibt einen schönen Garten. Die Altstadt kann gut zu Fuß erkundet werden.

We enjoyed our stay in a private room which was spacious and quite comfortable. The bathroom could have some attention, shower screen could be replaced. Building history was interesting.

Good breakfast offered. Helpful staff let us store our bags until we were ready to leave the city.
