Some of You will have wonderfull ecperience staing in this fantastic palace, dating from 1470... It may be, that some services are perhaps not ideally done, but THIS IS HOSTEL, not a Grand Hotel, ok? Lets be rasonable: beds very comfortable in our double room, water in bathroom very nice warm, breakfast very good, and lot of it, when thinking... More

First: DO NOT USE THE LAUNDRY it is a trap. Staying in this villa is a wonderful experience, but don't expect a wonderful quality of living, the place is located in a forest, u need to walk a long way from the main street to the villa which is ok at day but freaky at night, not a good breakfast,...

Stayed here with 2 female friends and loved it. Located in a wonderfully natural and peaceful area, the hostel itself is like a palace with its courtyard and artwork in the reception, and I'd love to know the history behind it. The service was good, I myself arrived at 4 in the morning and I was given my key without... More

We had booked in advance, but on arrival we changed our reservation from two separate dorm beds to a double, and couldn't get the deposit back because we "didn't use the reservation". Really lousy service, especially considering they earned more money on us choosing a double instead, and the fact that the double wasn't available on their website - according... More

This place is simple, located far from the city center and runned down, but still nice. After travellingfor a long time, it was very nice to be close to a forest and have a nice garden. Staff was friendly but we had some communication difficulties with one of them. This is a short review, not very nuch yo say. Very... More

This hostel was a real let down. I was looking forward to staying in what looked like such a beautiful villa, but the location and staff completely ruined it for me. The hostel is miles away from the centre of the city, you have to catch a bus in, which takes a while, and on Sundays doesn't even come! The... More

Villa Camerata did the job for us. We needed a place to relax, and the big garden and outdoors area did that for us. We also appreciated the mini shop that served cheap pasta for dinner for when we couldn't be bothered trekking in to town. It was affordable and right next to a bus stop which was also good... More

This is more like a dorm, than a hostel really. There is a million of rooms, very poorly equipped and simply said ugly. Bathrooms are not very clean. The common room is huge and okay. Although the outerior is wonderful, getting there is horrible if you don't have a car as one has to walk quite a bit through forrest-like... More

Florence is a very nice place full of historic sites and nature pride too but staying at this hotel was the worst idea ever. At first all looked good the location and surroundings were facinating but as we entered the hostel, we were shocked big time! The staff was very rude not a single smile warmed us and had to...

The rooms were not I would not recommend this place to you unless you were backpacking with friends and intend to stay in the same room with an on-suite loo. The rooms were average, but the toilets were not up to the mark. The hostel common room, however is very good and a great place to socialize with people from... More
