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.

The staff were not friendly, the female toilets were located on the floor below, despite booking 4 months in advanced. The room for 3 people was small and the sheets were not clean. I did not notice a 'green' theme as the breakfast had plastic utensils, butter and spreads in plastic containers that weren't recyclable. The handle on the bedroom door although it locked was loose. Overall due to arriving late we stayed 1 night although booked for 3 and found alternative accommodation the next day. We were refundedd 1 night. only

Ostello Villa Camerata liegt eigentlich ganz schön am Stadtrand, leicht erhöht, das Gebäude ist schön, die aktuelle Ausstattung jedoch sanierungsbedürftig und spartanisch-funktional. Das Vier-Bett-Zimmer war sehr klein und hatte vergitterte Fenster. Darin befanden sich zwei Hochbetten aus Metall, ein kleiner Tisch mit Stuhl und vier Wandfächer, die jedoch teilweise nicht mehr funktionstüchtig waren.Die Matratze (eher Hängematte) war sehr schlecht und abgenutzt. Das Frühstück karg. Die Busanbindung (Linie 11- Salviatino) zur Innenstadt ist an Wochentagen gut (ca. alle 15 Min.) an Samstagen halbstündlich, an Sonn- und Feiertagen im Stundentakt. Der Fußweg zur Haltestelle war nicht so weit, wie er in anderen Bewertungen beschrieben wurde. In 10-15 Minuten kann man ihn gut bewältigen, mit viel Gepäck und schlechtem Schuhwerk ist er jedoch unter Umständen unannehmlich. Ich habe mich sicher und trotz aller Mängel recht wohl gefühlt, vor allem, weil Florenz im Fokus war, weniger die Unterkunft.
