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 grounds appeared to have been maintained. The laundry were two outside tubs. Wifi was available and could be used in some parts other than reception. While we understand that this is a family facility, parties were using the conference room, both functions were for children although adults were in attendance the running through the premises while we were watching TV and those trying to use their computers and phones found the noise and lack of discipline disgusting. We were paying to use the facilities ad yha members. We did not enjoy not being able to sit outside with the yelling or when sitting inside the children running through the TV room and the terrace in front of the shop. Think twice.

..The Beauty.
Gorgeous garden...
Good things: clean room (i've been in a qtr room - which is great, and the 12 bed room is really too crowded, just too many beds in a too little space) , bathroom is spacious, stuff is nice, the terrace is nice ...but - the closing time.... Hm.. But the place is so nice, that i can honestly say - the prettiest hostel i have been in... not far from the centre. Beautiful place.

If you're a backpacker on a budget and you're out seeing the sights all day, it's fine. I slept well, and it was good to be out of the city centre. Convenient bus stop at the end of the drive, and it's in a pleasant area. Clean floors, lockable rooms, adequate facilities, helpful staff. I was worried about noise from large school parties etc. but this turned out to be no problem. Groups were sleeping elsewhere in the hostel, not near the individual travellers.

Room Tip: Ask to be put in a room away from large groups, if you're worried about schoolparties.

Beautiful place in a beautiful town. Easy to reach also by bus. Nice price.
Breakfast should offer a better choice of food.

Worst hostel I´ve ever been. I stayed there a long time ago, but it seems that nothing has changed. Like everybody says, it´s far from Florence, and the walk up (through the woods) is a bit creepy at night. The building needed urgent renovations (it must have been a superb place in its time). The place was crowded. The dorms are huge, with too much beds. Not safe at all, because you can´t lock the lockers!!! There was no place to put a lock (I travelled with one).The staff shrugged when I told them! I arrived late at night (had a reservation), and was too late to find some place else. I didn´t want to sleep knowing anybody could take my bags in the middle of the night! So I grabbed the matress, put it on the floor, blocking the door of the locker, and slept. I also took everything with me to the bathroom, when I took a shower the following morning. What do they expect??? For people to just leave their luggage unattended and go sightseeing??? Breakfast was frugal. After that, I went to a Tourist Information Office in Florence, and they recommended several hotels downtown, at affordable prices. The only good thing about Villa Camerata is the views. Don´t recommend it to anyone!! It´s not worth the cheap fee.
