The absolute worst hostel EVER. Don't go unless you cant afford anything else or everything else is fully booked. Creepy, dirty, awful. It's far from the center, is located on a dark road full of potholes. The building is dilapidated. Don't go there!

Worst place I've ever been to in my whole life. Dirty pavements. A huge layer of dust upon and inside the wardrobe. Blood stains covering the filthy bed sheets. Awful food. Let's not talk about the toilets... Super unfriendly staff. Creepy atmosphere outside at night and you can't even close the window because it's old and broken. If you don't...

This place was by far the cheapest option we found in Florence and, because we had a car, the location was not much of a worry. It is very far from the city center and getting there without a car seemed to involve a walk through the woods. Rooms and bathroom are very simple. The showers were ok, despite the...

One of the WORST places I've ever stayed at. I wish I had throughly read reviews of this place before I had booked it. For starters my husband and I did NOT pay for this hellhole had we paid we would have demanded our money back. I used points from my work to pay for 9 nights worth of hotels...

I booked two nights, I stayed one, as a woman traveling alone I didn't feel comfortable with a place occupied with a majority of illegal immigrant men, I try to don't judge by appearances, but simply it wasn't feel right for me. Thanks thanks thanks to the nice lady at the reception who understood and make me a refund for...

This place was terrible! It's NOT 2km from the centre like it's written, it's at the end station of bus 11 and then a 10 min walk into the forrest. The receptonist wanted to keep our passports when we checked in, something that we refused to do, and then he said that we had to pay straight away, which we...

On arrival to the hostel, the setting looked very worn and tired. Having booked through Hostelling International, the pictures displayed did not truly represent the run-down facade seen in person. The receptionist, who seemed to be a replacement as the hostel staff were on strike, was helpful and honorable. Unfortunately, I did not realize until upon arrival, that the reception...

I stayed in this hostel for 3 nights with a friend while we were backpacking around Italy. To start with you get a very good impression of the building itself. The hostel is set aback from any main roads and is pretty cool to look at. The main entrance hall is impressive too. The four bedroom dorms we stayed in...

Place is beautiful, historical architecture, beautiful garden. Far away from the city but bus goes every 15 min. English speaking staff. Breakfast like in the hostel, coffe, bread, marmolade. Bathrooms, toilets - old style hostels' standards. Rooms really really poor :( worst is that in fact it is filled with refugies from Africa and it is not creating atmosphere of...

Villa Camerata is a faded Dame of a building set in highly neglected grounds. The setting is rural yet within a short bus trip to central Florence. I expected it to be a bit worn but simple things were just horrible. The reception sofas were dirty and covers torn, bathroom light was on a timer which kept shutting off before...
