Reviews of YHA Ostello di FIRENZE Villa Camerata
It was a fantastic surprise to arrive to the hostel and see how new it was!
Good but they charge you 2 euro/night/person extra for their compulsory membership :/
the Hostel is located in a beautiful environment a bit outside the city center of Florence. Its great value even though rooms are quite small and matrasses are not the newest anymore. I woyld come and stay again!
There is no road to lead customers to the hostel.
Was for sure one of the worst experience while traveling of my life. I was alone in Florence and I'm aware that this made the situations worse but anyway. First, It is located on a grove and is far from the city (and public transport in Florence is expensive), so you take at least about 30m to be anywhere, walking is like an hour and something. I was there during the winter, so the sunrise and sunset was respectively around 8h and 16h and the path inside the grove to the building is not well lit and also in terrible condition mainly for the trolley wheels. So I was there always in the dark. But for me the worse was the reception, they don't have ANY care with you, you are just someone there. I went to rent a towel and wasn't none available left, although the place was creeply empty! All that they had was face towels and the guy didn't have any comprehension with the situation, I asked if they could lend me the face towel since they didn't have a body one for rent and he was super rude, telling me that if I want the towel I would need to pay the 2,5 euros. They also don't really have a kitchen, zero utensil, just a microwave and a refrigerator and far from each other. And There's no locker in the room. I couldn't be there for the second night, also because I would travel in the morning to Rome and to arrive at the station in time from there wouldn't be possible with public transportation, because of the time that it takes plus the time that it starts to work. Anyway, is personal, but if you are alone and the time of the day is short, DON'T GO THERE. And again, worse staff I ever saw.
