Located in a wonderful 15th century villa, Villa Camerata hostel is surrounded by a huge park and botanical garden, away from the noise of the city but close enough to reach the city centre by bus. It is close to a swimming pool, football stadium and the Nelson Mandela forum that hosts important concerts, theatre performances and cultural events.

The hostel offers a range of accommodation options including dormitories and private rooms, and a wide range of facilities are available including free Wi-Fi, Internet access, satellite TV, cinema and table tennis. Meals are also available and there’s a bar where you can chill-out and chat to other travellers.

Youth hostel Villa Camerata makes a great starting point for visiting some of Florence’s sights, whether in the city centre at places such as the Uffizi Gallery or Piazza della Signoria, or further afield in the medieval villages and picturesque Tuscan countryside.

Excellent cadre mais un problème d'insonorisation résonne et les décibels montent vite d'un cran. Il manque la possibilité de pouvoir cuisiner qui est un plus pour les voyageurs modestes que nous sommes. Le petit déjeuner du matin est copieux. Mais ce grand parc avec possibilité de garer la voiture et cette villa de style Médicis nous offre une part de rêve.

The place is good, location is far from Downton but nice. However, the shower floods to the toilet, the soap was supplied only once. I asked to leave my luggage after the checkout to go to Florence and it was denied. Had to carry all my luggage... Room was clean and fair.
