Cheap Hotels in Florence, Italy?

I need to find a cheap hotel in Florence, Italy during a large conference (April 5-10, 2008). All the conference-affiliated cheap hotels are booked. What are my options?

I'm a grad student. I'm hoping to attend CHI 2008
in Florence, but I just got my travel funding situation straightened out recently and I'm discovering that the only remaining unbooked rooms available through the conference organizers are in upscale hotels that cost 200+ euros per night. I'm willing to stay further from the conference venue than the officially-sanctioned hotels, assuming I can get a room for less. I know hostels are an option, but I'm going to be traveling with dress clothes, a laptop and some other equipment, so the stereotypical hostel-as-dormitory-with-no-secure-storage worries me a bit. What are my options for finding a cheap but somewhat secure hotel or hostel?
