    I loved this hostel! It’s located a bit outside of Florence so if you’re looking to go into the city every day, it maybe more of a hassle then helpful. If you want something more quiet in the Tuscany region, it’s perfect. Beautiful walks in the area and about an hour bus journey into the city. Staff is really helpful and the hostel is large & clean. Would definitely recommend

    This place was incredible. The staff ( I think his name was Declan) was very welcoming, very knowledgable, he even took us to a medevil town that was putting on a festival! The bed was comfy. Good locker. Plenty of space. The views are amazing! The only fault I could find was the full cooking facilities were limited to a microwave and some small oven/grill thing. The actual kitchen was an industrial kitchen so closed to the guests.

    Great and relaxing hostel in the countryside! Staff is very friendly, breakfast was great and there are beautiful places nearby which you can visit by bike or car. If you are going without a car just double check bus timetable.

    There was microwave and toaster oven and toaster, and electric jug for appliances, and no cooking utensils, pots, etc. Breakfast was not free and there were no dinner options. It was very clean and we'll looked after.

    Great staff willing to help you. Shower was a bit cold at the beginning. But for my last night the repaired it and it was warm enough. I met great people there. The location is great if you like to bit of the chianti region - i did a few hike with incredible views and amazing people.

    This was a super clean hostel, with great amenities for the price! Lockers and private bathrooms in our room, clean sheets and towels, good Wifi. Amazing 5€ breakfast buffet. It’s a bit of a far walk from the center, the staff was pretty rude, and there wasn’t a general ambience in the hostel - it was pretty quiet and people kept to themselves. But honestly a great place to stop for the price!!

    This hostel was great minus the location. It was about an hour bus ride outside of Florence. We were able to explore the small town and there were tons of restaurants and a huge market to buy food, clothes, and other goods. Definitely explore the smaller local vineyards in this area, they are amazing! It's a good atmosphere and it's super easy to meet other travelers here.

    Lovely hostel but very quiet, and it is a shame that there are no self catering facilities.
