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

I know you can't complain much for the price but Manners cost nothing and the staff were very rude, felt very unsafe as to one of the 'staff' trying to invite one of my friends to his room, very unprofessional. It was very noisy but I didn't have much issue with that, it was a issue of the people making... More

This was the base for our recent choir trip to Italy (70 ladies ranging in age from teens to 60s). Although basic and a bit of a shock to the system for those of use for whom the description "youth" is a bit of a stretch, it met our needs and the location was priceless. The hot water was plentiful... More

Yes, this is a youth hostel. Yes, it features dorms. Yes, the services are basic - breakfast is simple, wifi is available in the lobby only. But for goodness sake, you are staying in a Tuscan villa outside of Florence! The first night in town, we sat out on the balcony during the lightning storm and drank chianti, chatting to... More

After catching the wrong bus 11 and heading to the other side of town, I finally got here and was very happy indeed! Truth be told, after reading terrible reviews here, my expectations were really low, but as a backpacker from India, I was sure i'd stayed at worse But i was very pleasantly surprised.

My husband and I booked a twin room and it really was lovely. Very old hostel and could do with a bit of work but it kinda added to the experience! It's really handy to get into Florence centre from here too. There is a bit of a walk up the hill when you get off the buses. Buy a... More

Having found the entrance, dismayed at the road in lacking maintenance. The room was prebooked to be for a couple it was two sets of bunks. Although the beds were made ready. Breakfast consisted of 3 types of cereals, juices,coffees, bread etc. Although a good walk to the bus no 11 was easy to catch to go into town. The... More
