Reviews of YHA Ostello di FIRENZE Villa Camerata
The position is great, only problem is the distance form the center. I was sorry only two computers were worinkg in the internet room, I think 4-5 computers would be enough for as many people as there were in the hostel.
Located just outside the centre (10 min. by bus) the villa is excellent for all who want to relax after a day in firenze, the surroundings are quiet and it's only a 400 mtr walk to the nearest bus stop! Located near several supermarkets, bus ticket will cost you € 2,40,- to get to firenze and back! Rooms get cleaned every day but don't expect too much of that, it's just a quick sweep and emptying the trashcan. Showers/toilets are kept nice and clean and the staff is always very helpful. Food, drinks, WiFi (€ 2,50 per 12 hrs), bar (open till 11PM) and laundry service available (€ 3,- for a wash) everything you need is at hand and you can travel light if you want to. The only thing I missed was lockable lockers, a fan/airco, and maybe a shared fridge (as there is a microwave but nowhere to store your food) - and oh, don't forget to buy mosquito repellant! forget about bringing your own (unless you're from a really warm country as well), buy an electric vaporizer at the supermarket, works excellent!
Far, but beatyful. Most beauty hostel in wonerful location. I've spend two nights on my own in 8bed room /but its february/. Clean, stuff so-so.
If you want to be surrounded by nature and have beautiful views (and don't mind traveling 20 mins to get to the city center) this place is amazing. It is a great place to relax and just enjoy nature at its best. The staff were a bit grumpy (maybe due to the constant large groups of students coming through) and I wouldn't recommend the food- go out and explore! But other than that, this is a lovely villa to stay in. There are campgrounds as well should you decide you want to go camping instead. :)
