The hostel was in a great location, it had a great view of Florence and when we were there on 12th and 13th of September there was a gelato festival next to the campsite which was really good. We visited at end of the season and you couldn't escape the feeling that the staff weren't couldn't really be bothered. Our tent didnt have a plug in it which was annoying as the only places you could charge things was in the bar area where you couldn't leave electronics unattended. REALLY POOR SIGNANGE!!
Toilets are not kept clean, rentable tents are mouldy and let in water when it rains and the locks difficult to use. Long walk to the top of the hill to go to the bathroom which stinks. Wayyyy to many big hungry mosquitos for my liking so bring lots of bug spray. Otherwise good location on the hill overlooking florence and staff where as friendlyas you can get considering you are in italy... Also there is an extra fee onto of the bill at the end which was not made clear.
mosquitos in there sucking blood like a vampire. I mean they are not regular mosquitos, they are mutant. Be ready for that and bugs of course because it's a camping site. Just a little far from the city centre but it's ok. Get your raincoat or umbrella because these tents leak. on the other hand atmosphere was great in a forest, just out of city and has a perfect view of city. bar was good also. if you are thinking walk to there at your first night, do NOT. just get on the bus.
I got a shared tent. According to price, it was really nice to stay there. The most important point is the distance between there to Michelangelo park which has a wonderful view of Florence. Highly Recommended :)
The camping is really well, you have a very nice area with tables, music and internet access, with a great view of the city. The staff is really warm, they help you with all they can. They give you clean sheets when you arrive, that's good, yet the tents could be a bit more clean. Also the bathroom, eventhough it is always being cleant I think there should be some deodorizers or something since there always is kind of non-pleasant smell. The price is good (compared to the campings in Italy).
May be it was hard to reach the camping with heavy bags, but the view from piazza Michelangelo is great!!! we are slightly cold in our tent, i think in future, we had to take sleeping bags))) And many thanks to the staff for their responsiveness)))
Pros: 20 minute walk from Ponte Vecchio, very cheap for Florence, right next to Piazzale Michelangelo (Amazing views), bus stop which takes you to train station. Power sockets at restaurant area. Cons: very understaffed, shower block not very clean, on-site shop closed down, restaurant expensive. No power sockets in rooms, most tents have rips and gaps. Lots of bushes & trees, so lots of mosquitos. We had to ask to move rooms because of spider nests in tent. Moved to clean tent in a better area
