Beautiful place (wouldn't call it a hostel at all!). My friend and I shared a suite and had our own kitchenette, bathroom & terrace. I said the location was "good" because it takes a bit of effort to get there (you'll need a car and good directions), but it's not that far of a drive from Siena and a great location if you plan on traveling around Tuscany by car. The owner is prepared for you to ask for a recommendation as to where to go and has a print-out with a map. Would definitely stay again.
Great hostel/hotel, but only if you have a car, as did our group. Rooms are large, comfortable and have a well-equiped kitchen. I particularly liked the shower, which has a great pressure and it's really hot. The restaurant attached to the hotel is also very good, though not exactly cheap if you're backpacking or on a short budget.
Great stay! The very nearby restaurant was the best in Italy... really good food! I would not recommend it if you are not traveling with a car, but if you have one then it is the perfect stay in Siena / Tuscany.
If you have a car, the place is great! Clean, comfortable & spacious. Not in a Siena but close to a cute small town- follow the owner's recommendation on where to eat he's spot on! We had a great stay

This was a brief stop while traveling from Rome to Cinque Terre for us. Great new hotel, very spacious and clean. Had our own patio off the back glass doors. Excellent restaurant connected with the best pizza we had in Italy and delicious caprese salad. Would definitely stay again!
Great place to use as a base for the whole of Tuscany but make sure you have a car! The staff are brilliant. We turned up with no plans and 4 days to burn an the staff gave us a full 10 page printout of maps and itineraries to follow while there. We saw places we never would have known about. And the apartment was large, clean and comfortable. Great value for money.
We really enjoyed our one night stay at Oasi Del Grillo! The facilities were great; the apartment was very spacious and had room for cooking and good wifi. It would have been nice to be further into the country from the main road but this wasn't really an issue for us. Would definitely recommend a stay if you have a car as driving in the centre of Siena is a bit of a nightmare too!
Love love love this place!!!!! Definitely only book if you have a car as it is a 20 min drive into the city of Siena. The owner was the friendliest and greatest host ever. We asked him for some tips and he ended up giving us SO much info and help on our trip. Our room was HUGE, clean, AC, kitchenette in the room, big bed, couches, etc. Would highly recommend this place to everyone!! You will not regret it!
Huge room, with its own kitchen. I wasn't expecting this much. Also, friendly and helpful staff. Easy to find and reach, as long as you have a car (it's right off the dual carriageway, I don't know about public transport in the area). A good place to stay if you are visiting around Sienna.
This is a place I would definitely go back to. Definitely excellent value for money. Crystan clean, beautiful, the room was really big with a brand new kitchen in it. The restaurant at the same facilities was also pretty nice and worth it!
We couldn't get better place for accommodation! We spent there a very pleasant time though it was only for one night but it was worh it! Room was delightful and comfortable. In fact this is a very new hotel and it doesn't deserve for calling it a hostel. If you travel by car than it's the best choice since it's not far from sea (5 km) and Siena (about 20 km). The owner was very helpful and they have a free parking and wifi. I truly recommend it!
amazing! we slept in 7 hotels through our trip and this one was by far the most amazing one - everything, and i mean everything was great - the owner is very friendly, helpful and welcoming, the price is great and the apartment was clean, big, and equipped with everything you need - kitchen and tools ect. if you are looking for a place to stay near sienna - this is the best one - get groceries on the way and cook yourself an itlian dinner :)
Oasi del Grillo is really good choice if you are travelling around Tuscany with car. It is located 20 km outside from Siena just on exit of highway. The place is really beautiful, wonderfull apartmens and so is the price! They have their own restaurant (trattoria&pizzeria) next door with excellent food.
Fantastic place to stay. It's not a hostel but infact an apartment all for you. Giuseppe is a great guy and knows perfectly how to manage a hotel.
The apartment was very nice with plenty of space and everything you'd need (especially a corkscrew). It was easy to get to from Sienna, and the staff was extremely friendly. A very nice place to stay for a night.
Spacious, clean and comfortable apartment in the beautiful Tuscany area. Close to Siena. Restaurant next to the building. Would recommend it to friends.
We LOVED this place! Super friendly and very helpful staff (excellent English!); adorable little apartment and EXCELLENT value for money, plus really good pizza at the restaurant next door! If you're driving around it's a great place to chill out, and sunflower fields are very close too so it's a pretty area. Two thumbs up!
Hostal ubicado en plena campiña toscana, muy cerquita de Siena, un lugar muy tranquilo, los alrededores muy bonitos y los apartamentos casi nuevos, muy bien equipados y limpísimos. El personal ofrece un trato muy cercano y te ayuda en todo lo que necesitas. Hemos estado como en casa. Absolutamente recomendable.
really need a car! however there is a bus that takes you into siena but only runs once in the morning.
