Welcome to our hostel

Ostello del Chianti offers you a holiday in one of the most beautiful and famous regions in Italy. Here you will find beautiful scenery, excellent wines and cuisine, delightful medieval villages and world famous art cities such as Florence and Siena, which can both be reached by a bus which departs every hour close to the hostel.

At the hostel you’ll find 4-6 bedded dorms and double rooms, a large garden, dining room, restaurant and a private car park. If you want to dine out there are many restaurants that offer meals, wine and beer at reasonable prices.

Surrounding the hostel are hiking trails that take in the sea of colourful countryside, a park with a rink for roller-skating and a children's playground, and nearby you can try free wine tastings and horse riding activities. There’s also a sports centre with swimming pool and tennis courts 6km away.

Die Jugendherberge und auch die Ortschaft sind nicht die schönsten, aber die Atmosphäre war klasse. Die beiden "Herbergsleiter" waren ausgesprochen freundlich und abends saßen fast alle zusammen im Gemeinschaftsbereich. Die Umgebung ist wunderschön im Chiantigebiet und Nahe Siena, San Gimigniano und Volterra. Man kann sich auch Fahrräder in der Jugendherberge leihen.

Location, cleanliness, friendly staff. Close to transport to all major cities in Tuscany. Great food, even better wine !

A good place to stay if you want to visit the wine regions; or San Gimignano.

It's better to spend several days around there in summer, if you are keen on the pastoral Italian life. As I spent only one night and had to catch the bus to Florence downtown, I feel the location is a little inconvenient. The bus runs around 1hr for the single trip.
