We had a wonderful experience here. Keep in mind that the hostel is not very close to Florence, about an hour train ride. But, the small town of Certaldo is so worth seeing. We wanted to just walk through it and ended up falling in love, and spending the whole day there. The hostel is very sweet. We had a wonderful experience with the staff and other guests. You really get a taste of Toscana at this home away from home.
An amazing place to stay if you're lookin for peace. The staff was amazing, even cooked for us the night we arrived (late). Nothing to complain about, perhaps the location, but It's a fair price to pay for such an atmosphere. Recommended.
Fantastic vibrant stay with the host Hayley and the other guests. She made our stay special and was always willing to help. Be prepared for encounters with mosquitoes and the supernatural.
Beautiful estate the rooms are full of antiques and spotlessly clean. Staff were fabulous and we had a very relaxing stay. Would for sure come back!
Very relaxing hostel, good opportunity to chill out- Hayley is an awesome host too. I reccomended the cooking class!
My favourite hostel in all Europe. An exquisite old monastery in a beautiful setting , just a short walk from Certaldo and the Tuscan countryside. When I stayed, there was just one staff member who was super welcoming and helpful, so that I felt I was visiting friends rather than staying at a hostel. It has a beautiful garden, outside areas for relaxing, and bikes that can be used to explore. Facilities are excellent with a kitchen, and mosquito nets on all windows. Highly recommended!!!!
Absolutely loved my stay here! Great homey feeling,beautiful area, clean, got a taste of real Tuscany, and the staff (Hayley) went out of her way to make me feel comfortable and enjoy my time. Would go back in a heartbeat.
I had a great stay here! The setting is beautiful and the place had a great atmosphere. Would definitely stay here again.
Hayley is awesome; the ultimate host/staff. The location is perfect IF you want to chill out in Tuscany in old style castle/villa/home, ride funky bikes around town, sit back and drink wine and get away from the cities. I ended up staying 4 nights and did day trips to Siena, Florence (x2) and San Gimignano and it was very convenient. NO PICKUP FROM TRAIN :) You have to walk about 20 minutes with your back from station which isn't horrible, as long as you can find it! Awesome! Definite Recommend
