Tourist City Taxes

Hello everyone,

I'm about to do a low cost trip to some cities in Italy. And I know that there is a "Tourist City Tax" to be paid at the hotel, depending on the city, number of people, stars of the hotel, etc

My question is: This tax is also applicable to Hostels and Hotels with 2 stars?

Cheers!

Not hostels:

That is Rome city's official website and the page detailing the taxes

In Lucca you do pay the city tax at hostels and all starred hotels as the tax is calculated by room price not stars e.g. room rate 1.00 euro to 29.99 euros tax is 1 euro.

Each town sets its own rules, so you would need to ask each of your hotels.
