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!!

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.

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!

The staff were lovely however the Mosquitos were really bad in our room. Seemed to be breading in the bathroom. It was hot during the night with no fan provided and so had to have the window open letting more Mosquitos in. Other guest were very noisy in the dinning area until 01.00 in morning do didn't sleep the best.

This hostel is about a hour away from the actual city of Florence. It's a gorgeous town with vineyards surrounding it. The hostel itself was good, clean and friendly. Great price.

I would NOT suggest this place if you want to see Florence (too far and considering the bus ride, you wouldn't save any money). BUT if you want a break from sightseeing and just want to relax a bit in some nice tuscan sun and see some nature, then I WOULD definitely recommends this place. Free wine tasting down the street. Overpriced bike rental Great breakfast buffet for 2 euros. Lady at reception is super friendly

This is a really nice hostel located in lovely Tavarnelle...... It's quite a bustrip away from Florence, so we wouldn't recommend you to choose this hostel, if you're only interested in the City of Florence. Except from that this Hostel is so nice; the staff is so friendly and gave us a private room because of a missing key for the dorm - and we shouldn't pay more. We extended our stay because of the good atmosphere. Nice and clean. Wi-fi very spotty though. :-) We'd go there again!

Place is a little run down. Our room only had 1 electrical outlet that worked and it was loose. We did have a small terrace and set there each evening to journal. We just used that place to sleep and traveled all day so it was fine for what we needed.

Great vibes around the hostel, free wine tastings down the road. Good location to go between Florence and Siena but if you're going by bus don't expect to be out too late since the buses stop around 8. The staff are really accommodating and so are the people that live around. Recommended

In a nice small town right in countryside. Don't expect to shuffle back and forth from here and Florence but instead soak in the Tuscan countryside with wineries all over and small reasonable restaurants to soak in the culture.

I absolutely LOVED IT there!!! The staff is oh so helpful and friendly and not to mention how many people I met my two day stay! It's amazing how well I spent it here. The countryside is absolutely beautiful! DEFINITELY worth the investment(: the backpackers there are so nice that you just wanna to stay longer. I definitely recommend anyone to stay!
