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... More

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

I love being out of the centre of Florence, it's a short bus ride and the buses go every 10 minutes or so, the rustic driveway is one of the pleasures to walk up and down as is the eye candy of the Villa itself, this is the second visit and each time I have arrived for 3 days and... More

Although we ended up staying here a lot longer than we would have liked, I would not really recommend this place. The location is far from the centre, bus connections are a pain, it's a long walk uphill once you get to the base, and the rooms are pretty noisy. Also, the wifi is sketchy, a problem if you're looking... More

The hostel itself was alright, it seemed to have previously been a boarding school or something. There were loads of trips coming in and people making a lot of noise and slamming doors, but you need to expect that in hostels. There was an extremely rude woman in the hostel who was cleaning the living area but was speaking Italian... More
