I went there with 4 friends of mine, autumn time. There were not many guests that time (if i remember well only 3 ppl in other room), so we had all dorm as private paying for only 5 beds. Bathrooms were shared but again - we were the only ones on the floor so we had it only for us.... More

The hostel it's self is lovely, about 45 to 1hr bus ride away from Florence itself (important to know as I didn't realise this until I was there), so you can still do day trips into Florence, Bologna, Siena, Pis and the beautiful Cinque Terre (highly recommended, just don't take boat trip amid seas are rough and try stay a...

The place was nice, staff was friendly and helpful. But you should know in advance the hostel is FAR from the city, about an hour (even if they say its 20 minutes BELIEVE ME its not!). To get to the hostel from the station you need to get a bus that will take about 40 minutes to get there and... More

They offer the same services that you will get in other youth hostels (HI). Breakfast is quite generous: fresh bread, cereals, coffee, juices, cheese. Internet is free and they have wifi access. We reserved a double room and got one with bunk beds! Not what we asked for and not what they advertize on the Internet. It's OK if you... More

Situated in Tavernelle, ostello del chianti was a nice find. I made some great friends and there are wine tasting vineyards only minutes walk away. The town of Tavernelle is small but is peaceful for a nice walk around. The hostel itself is located about an hour from Florence, and you need to take a bus. I would recommend this... More

The staff here are very friendly and helpful. The hostel is situated in an amazing town, Tavernelle, right in the heart of the Tuscano countryside. Tavernelle is situated right in between Florence and Siena that are both very easy to get to by bus. The hostel is cheap but very clean and welcoming with guests from all over the world,... More

We come back every year: we never get bored of Tuscany! This hostel is extremely clean, homely and colorful, with places for couples, groups or quiet spots for reading and relax. The staff is very kind and helpful. Tavarnelle is a little lovely town in the beautiful Tuscany hills. Far enough from big cities to be incredibly peaceful, yet Siena,... More

My husband and I are in our 30's and have stayed in a good mix of hostels, pensions and hotels since we started backpacking around Europe in college. While we tend these days to stay at more hotels than hostels, we just couldn't justify spending more than 100 euros a night for a basic room in Tuscany. That's why we... More

Well, yes, this is a hostel. But if you accept that you sleep in a room with (in our case) four beds and no bathroom, this is a great place to stay. 20 minutes drive to Florence, you will stay in a small city surrounded by vineyards, olive trees and all the romantic atmosphere in Tuscany. The nicest receptionist will... More
