Did not enjoy this hostel at all. Stayed in an 8 person dorm, which was kept clean. The bathrooms on the otherhand, were not. They were closed from 11-2 every day but were still just as disgusting after as they were before they had closed them. The breakfast was simple but good. The staff was unhelpful and somewhat rude. Additionally,... More

I loved hostel from the first sight, specially the garden and smell of hybiscus in late spring... Recetion in an old hall was also impresive. I stayed in a small room which is located in separate bulding across the garden. There are just 3 rooms, mine with bed and bunkbed and wc-shower. I even had a small terrace! Room was... 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
