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.
What travellers think
at the first moment I thought it would be so far from the down town. But in fact buses stop very closed. You need to walk about five minutes to or from the hostel and it is a nice landscape.

It all went well until the last day. My mum was alone when she gave back the keys. She doesn't speak English or Italian, and the person at the desk told her she had to pay something extra, because there was a mistake on our arrival. I wasn't there and she paid what she was asked to. But there was no mistake. I had to spend almost an hour on a foreign phone and they told me that yes, there was mistake, to send my banking references via email. It's been a week, and I haven't had any news yet...
