No electrical plugs on rooms like at other camping plus spots. No pool either. Still pretty good bang for your buck.
It was fine, nothing more. There's a great view, and a nice bar/outside terrace area, but no outlets in the tents. I had to charge my phone in the bathroom because all of the outlets on the terrace were being used. The staff was nice enough. This place is the bare minimum of an acceptable stay.
When you check in you are given a map of the grounds, but it turned out to be outdated - none of the water faucets or electric outlets were working. There are also outdated signs on the premises, e.g. to an ATM or shop which aren't there. The staff are aware of this. The only place to get some water is the bathroom sinks, and the only place to get electricity is the outlets in the restaurant, where you must purchase something, or a paid locker where you can only fit in a phone for charging.
cheap. You get what you pay for really. Tents were alright. did not feel very secure. seemed as if anyone could walk into the camp ground at all hours without question. bus stop right outside of the gate is nice. Didnt help it was 100° everyday we were there. only wifi and power points were on top of hill at the bar area.
I don't know why the reviews are so bad... My tent was clean, spacious and lockable. There's way more than enough showers and toilets which they clean often. Huge bar area is great and free wifi is good there. I'd go back for sure. Can't beat the value in Florence, especially for the location. Only real negative would be the bar/club very nearby that sometimes plays music loudly until super late. Ear plugs recommended.
It gets very hot in the tents quite early and stays hot till late. No power points in tents, but plenty available at the bar. Would be nice if there was a pool! There's an outdoor club next-door with loud music playing until 4am, so if you stay here bring ear-plugs.
So the location is gorgeous and it's really cheap and so you probably sort of get what you pay for. But... Other plus camping places are the same price and nowhere near as dirty and unpleasant. There was music going the whole night, nowhere to charge phones apart from at the bar, and the showers - it was like being in Orange is the new black, there were about 2 showers with locks on and even they were dirty and covered in grime. The market was non existant as was the atm. Pizza was overpriced.
Really very nice, but th price I got by booking through hostel world, 11.50 per person was far more reasonable then the 16.50 marked here.

Bathrooms are dirty but not too dramatic. Location is very good considering it is a campground. Wifi is spotty and power outlets scarce but then again ... it is a campground. very good for short stay and affordable. might want to consider touching a few things up but overall fine.
I've stayed at other hostels by this company and this one was disappointing. No outlets or wifi in the tents; showers weren't very clean and a lot of stuff was broken: doors, shower heads, multiple drains and drain covers. 5 large lockers for the entire campsite/hostel and the luggage room was not very secure. I walked right in, with no one questioning me, to get my bag. The club "next door" was super loud. Louder than most hostels with clubs. If you need something cheap, I guess, but be aware.
Great camping ground, tents were awesome so comfortable and clean. lots of showers and toilets so you didn't have to wait, really nice location with frequent buses from the train station which made it easy. no kitchen which meant you had to buy food out or from the restaurant there, but would definitely stay there again.
Fantastic value for money. The location is good, only a 2km walk from town. There are no PowerPoints or wifi in the tents, had to walk up to the central bar area to charge things. There werent enough powerpoints (bring a powerboard!) and the wifi was very slow at night. However the covered bar/dining area is a great place to meet other travellers as everyone charges phones & eats dinner. The staff were so lovely, very helpful when I requested to change tents to be with all females. Great value!
My first hostel experience was at this hostel, and it was wonderful!! Outdoorsy in a big city, met other interesting people from many countries, and the rooms (I stayed in a shared 3 bed with randoms) were cozy. Thanks for maintaining such a wonderful atmosphered facility!
Nice campsite and a good base for exploring Florence and surrounding areas. Like the bar overlooking the site and that the tents are a 5 min walk away, so nice and quiet. No complaints.
Our tent wouldn't lock from the outside. The wifi was only available in one spot and was very limited. These two issues didn't bother me until I went to check out and the tried to charge me 50$ more than what I was told it would be the previous night and they couldn't tell me why they were charging extra or show the correct rate. The employee continued to argue with me after I was showing him the email saying this is what I was told. Would not recommend due to the poor staff and organization.
We arrived at 7pm and were med by a fairly grumpy receptionist who didn't seem top happy with us arriving without an online booking. Tent was a good size with lights and all, but got a lot of mosquitobites during the nights. The so-called "hot showers" are lukewarm and bathrooms give the feels of public bathrooms. Expected more. However the and the restaurant was brilliant, and the location too. All in all we had a mixed feeling stay, probably wouldn't come back though.
Wifi was on and off. Would be great to have it in the tents too, or to have power outlets in the tent, or to have a few more in the chill out area. But was a good place to stay and reasonably priced! And great pizza! And a beautiful view. Thank you!
Really liked that you can be camping but still only a 15 min walk to the city centre. Atmosphere was nice, close to Michelangelo square for the sunset!! Showers/bathrooms were fine. Would be great if they could have power points in the tents.
Love the location of this place. Really nice atmosphere and beautiful views from the top of Michelangelo lookout. Decent for what you pay. Would stay again.
Several people including myself had their phones and wallets stolen from the lockers and the campsite.
