I had an amazing experience at this hostel! Sylvia is one of the sweetest people I have ever met and instantly makes you feel welcomed. I was so late for my check in time but she simply said ´´you´re right on time!´´ Very clean and tidy. However, i stayed with only one other person in my room because it was the last day of the season. There is free wine tasting and a cute town all very accessible by foot. Very good place if you want quiet! I would definitely reccomend this hostel.

I really enjoyed my stay in ostello. 1. Clean 2. Amazing view 3. Staff is super kind- she drove me to one of the best pizza place for free. 4.wifi works only in common room.
everything is great. Just a bit difficult to get there if you dont have a car. Bus is the only way, and not very frequent scheduled. no kitchen facilities. Good place to retreat and enjoy lovely countryside of Toscana.
This was my second stay here (because I loved it so much!) And it was wonderful as usual. Sylvia is the hostess with the mostest! So sweet and energetic and welcoming! I've met great people there each time I stayed. It's quiet and relaxing in a town of the beaten path(, but a quick cheap bus ride away,) out of the tourist mob in Florence, half way to Siena, in the heart of Chianti. Great value for the money. Nice European breakfast spread in the morning. Love this place!!xoxo Sylvia!!
Hostel is located in the middle of the Chianti region, less than an hour bus ride to Siena and Florence. Bus stops, grocery store, good restaurants within 5 minutes walking distance. Wine tastings at vineyards, hotels and restaurants all over, try La Spinosa in old town Barberino, and Hotel Cortefredo! Also Silvia and the other man who work at reception are very lovely, even the cleaning lady is nice. Silvia was extremely helpful to me when I had an issue with the post, always kind & smiling!!
This was a great stay in Tuscany! Close enough to Florence without paying Florence prices. Clean quiet and meet a lot of great people here. In a quiet but , was good to get away from the overly touristy buzz. Great food, great wine is very close . Hostel h has great facilities and amenities
The location is very close to the train station but farther away from the central part of the city. Rooms and bathrooms were clean and there was a full kitchen on each floor. There is a dining area next to the kitchen but no common area. It can be difficult to meet people if they are not in your room.
Just and a beautiful hostel located in the most beautiful place in Chianti, firenze. Lovely staff. We had a pleasant stay, really!
the lady that was at reception was excellent especially her directions to various places we requested.
The hostel is nice and clean and very well localized. The owner is totally helpful and gave us a lot of important informationa about Chianti and Florence. It's close to all Chiant attractions and in the middle between Siena and Florence so it's perfect place to make sightseeing of the whole region
Great hostel located in quiet city of tavarnelle. Staff were very helpful providing information on transport and best places to eat. Even shared a bottle of wine with us. Wifi worked in common area, and hostel was walking distance to main city/ restaurants/ buses. Definitely worth visiting this superb little area. Also super close to wineries too. Everyone is laid back and friendly.

This hostel is located in a town called Tavernalle- bus from Florence. Directions were difficult. Hostel is within walking distance of vineyards, local restaurants and spectacular views. It's a quiet hostel, perfect for exploring Tuscany in peace. Silvia was phenomenal and gave us tips on wines and restaurants, places to visit and so much more. Neighbouring town Barberino was a great walk with views, wine and coffee to taste. (We loved 'La Spinosa' wines). No kitchen, so you have to eat out.
Reception man was very friendly and helpful. There was a computer table tennis table and good lounge area which was nice. Kitchen wasn't set up for cooking as there was no hob but were able to use microwave. Not very busy when we went but would be great place to stay with lots of people there .
I stayed there for 1 night and I thought it was a little waste of time. Nothing much to see/do in the town. And the "heart of Chianti" can only be reached by bus. The hostel didnt have a friendly atmosphere. But it was clean and quiet. The lady at the reception was awesome though!!! Without her the hostel would be bland
Ostello de Chianti was the perfect place to stay! It's location is ideal if you want to get both the Chianti (Tuscany) and Florence regions! It is only a 50 minute bus ride from Florence, but you can actually see more of Italy instead of just buildings and monuments! There is also a medieval town in walking distance from the hostel also and a great winery La Spinsoa! The staff was extremely helpful, the place was clean, met so many good people, and would come back again! Thanks Ostello!
