  • PLEASE DO NOT GO HERE. You have to climb mountain. How to explain this building? It is in jungle. if you have a bign and heavy backpack or luggage, you will hate this place. And here is really far away from city I guess. Breakfast is just bread and tasteless cereal. I would not recommend to drink orange juice, because my friend and I felt sick after drinkg that. Here, lt seems like dorm. Not good and feel cold.

  • Very good hostel with ample bathroom and nutrious breakfast for its price. I have found fast Wi-Fi at the hall and no mosquittos in the room. The way to hostel through "forest" (actually it's the alley between vineyards) is not too long, and the slope is not abrupt. Ist only failing is the absence of towels.

  • I stayed one night a couple of weeks ago, and my arms are still covered with mosquito bites.

  • 20 Min. to go city center with bus. Staff was not really kind but not bad. it's in the forest, so you can feel fresh air. The Price is suitable to these facilities. I like vending machines.

  • The problem concerning location is not because it is a bit far. It is ok to get there by bus. But after you leave the bus, you need to walk a very long way in a completely dark road surrounded only by woods. Bad for a girl travelling alone, like me. Furthermore, the staff was really rude, there was not wifi in the rooms, and only two plugs for a 7 beds dorm. And it was beyond dirty. There was even a poop in the SHOWER floor.

  • I enjoyed my stay mainly because this is such an amazing place. A grand old villa on private acres is great. Fairly basic facilities, very basic breakfast. Very poor security with few lockers n not lockable. Something could be fixed fairly easily.

  • You will love or hate this place solely based on what you want out of Florence. It's very far from the city centre.. You won't be able to walk out of the estate and mosey around until you find a cool restaurant or bar or some place to shop. On the other hand, it is fairly easy to get to the centre by bus after the walk down the hill (which could be troublesome for some people and definitely not handicap-friendly). If you want to just relax then this place is nice..beautiful patio & lush grounds.

  • Not very clear about location. The fact that you have to pay for a membership fee is ridiculous.
