Welcome to our hostel

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.

This is a great location.. The cleaning and catering staff were very friendly. However, the people at the desk seemed very unwelcoming - too busy with ?other tasks - also disorganised - it took us 4 goes to properly check in - in contrast with other hostels where our booking was already in a folder for the day. This didnt seem to be just about computers being down, as it was back up the 2nd time we tried. Overall we liked the hostel, but this stopped it being as good as it could have been

das Gebäude verfällt langsam: die Markissen sind verschimmelt und zerrissen, die Außenanlagen verwahrlosen und werden nicht gepflegt, das Haus wird zusätzlich noch als Flüchtlingsunterkunft genutzt

The matrasses are in a very bad shape. I suffered from a serious backache afterwards. We paid for a private bedroom for two, but got a dorm of 4 in which we were the only 2. Meaning: private, that you are on your own, but you still have to sleep separately in bunk beds. The (men's) showers smell terribly. A lot of noise until very late at night. The breakfast is basic, but everything is served in plastic: plastic cuttlery, plastic cups, jam and chocolate in plastic portions.

There were noisy visitors and echoing acoustics with loud conversation and music until 3am. The villa is being used as housing for migrants who are required to meet up with project management staff who call them on a loudspeaker at any time between 0900 and 2230. It is very hot when windows are closed and many mosquitoes when windows are open. The breakfast served by the villa is poor and, as there is no shop nearby, you have to wait until you get to centre of Florence before you can eat.
