We had a great stay. Place is exactly as described. It's not in Florence, but is in the country which is exactly what I wanted. Really cool place, great staff. Would recommend.

Friendliest and most down to earth staff around. They truly make an effort to make everyone feel welcome. Make sure to have one of them take you on a tour of the underground tunnels ;) The wine tour is a must! This is fantastic getaway from a fast-paced city life. Thank you for making my time here memorable Luis and Ivan!

This is a really unique place. The staff are really down to earth and you can tell they actually care and want to get to know you. The hostel itself is awesome and a great getaway from city life. This hostel isn't in Florence! I spent a few nights in Florence and then came here to relax. Meeting people was pretty easy as well. It seemed liked a lot of day trips were doable from here too. Awesome staff, cool place, beautiful area.

1. Be careful it's not in Florence! even though they has a name of Florence when you search 2. Do not go there in the night. 1) You could easily drop off at the wrong station based on the unreliability of the railway in Italy 2) It's impossible to find the way after you get off the station in night.

Unbelievably amazing place to stay! The hostel itself was like a tourist attraction to explore. We stayed on the private guesthouse side which was beautiful and well kept. The location was equally beautiful; the view from our window was of the Tuscan countryside. We think this would be a great place for a wedding. Definitely hope to come back some time!

Highly recommend as a relaxing, homely place to stay for 2-4 days if you're near Florence. Lovely rural converted monastery, with a sunny garden & hammocks (& a pool in summer!) Cosy farmhouse kitchen which creates a nice family atmosphere. Staff are particularly nice, & also organise excursions. Rooms basic, but single beds not bunks. Brisk 20 min walk from train station & town, 40+ mins each way to supermarket. Quiet but cute town. Have a massage with Tania the owner's wife, it's wonderful!

Bassetto is more of a perfect country home than a hostel. The caretakers for this season, Luis and Yvonne are the best, loveliest people ever. The facilities are great, they offer many tours, this is the best place I've stayed at, super relaxing. Would come back here every time.

Very nice atmosphere at Fattoria Bassetto, in the earth of Toscany you will stay in anancient convent completely refurbished and updates to nowdays, very fascinating! The view on green hills is great, they have free bike in house that one can use for excursions in the country side around. People are nice and welcoming!

Nice and peaceful place. Situated in between florence and siena (50 min. to florence and 35 to siena). Certaldo is a beatyful small town, that although offers whatever you need!

Incredible buildings with a story to boot. I'm not sure that being 2 minutes from the interstate passes as countryside, but I did find the place quite relaxing. I arrived late my first night so there was no staff around, but it worked itself out. Had a bit of a problem with mosquitoes the first night, but some incense took care of that. More suited for people traveling by car than backpack I think, but certainly a memorable place.

I loved this place! After coming from Florence, I felt myself relax instantly as soon as I boarded off the train. I savoured its peacefulness, remoteness (it's probably only about 20 mins walk...leasurely from the town centre), simpleness, security, and it's surroundings. I could've just stayed at the compound everyday, just lazying around because that's what the ambience was! Be free! Stop and breathe and just be still! I love it!!!

Very relaxing to get out of the city for a while. Whole place was filled with mosquitoes, had to wear bug spray inside.
