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.

I was extremely displeased. We were depending on on the WiFi to work since we were in the middle of the woods with no cell service. There was no WiFi in the lobby nor the rooms. The WiFi had no internet even after restarting the router. We couldn’t communicate with the outside world, what if we could not contact anyone in case of emergency? We had only been checked in to hostel for an hour when We had to leave. I am deeply upset and would like to ask for a full or partial refund of my price.

Es ist zu weit von der InnerStadt, Auf dem Weg von der Bushaltstellle bis zum Hotel gibt es keine Lampe. Und es gibt keine nur eine STECKDOSE. Die Tuer ist nicht so gut. Das Fruestueck ist schlechtt. Aber die ARBEITER sind sehr nett.

Peaceful & quiet, but well away from the centre. Easy to find, you can catch a bus for €1.20-€1.50. A long walk up a roughly surfaced road. Few facilities like cafes nearby. It has machines for drinks/snacks. The breakfast is basic, but served in plastic cups/glasses - not very environmentally friendly. Rooms have large cupboards to put bags, but can’t lock them. The bathrooms toilets very clean, but the showers have limited space to put your things. Benches against the wall would help.

I enjoyed staying in this villa. It is full of character, a real old fashioned Florentine mansion. It's in a park halfway to Fiesole, so you are minutes away by bus from the centre of the city in one direction and the countryside in the other direction. The rooms could do with being refurbished or at least brightened up, and breakfast was a bit meagre, but on the whole, a very good experience.
