Basic but great base

it's a little unfair to give just 3 stars but it is a hostel - so basic but has all that a traveller needs and is great value and an excellent base for discovering Florence. The hostel is set in a wooded landscape - near the Florence bus route though it is a good walk to the old villa. Backpackers will work up a sweat! As with most hostels renovations and improvements have been done in a piecemeal fashion that feels somewhat unsatisfactory in parts. Our room looked to back onto mature trees and consisted of two sets of red bunks, an egg yellow cupboard divided into four and two stools. Basic. A shelf would have been useful! We were given a key for a small bathroom just for us - family of 4 - and could use the communal shared showers and loos too, which were always clean for us. School canteen style tables and seats for bar and breakfast areas were adequate but not sympathetic with the architecture. We enjoyed breakfast outside on wooden benches. Breakfast is basic - Bread and jam and tea or the most vile coffee. I should have taken my small percolator and also don't forget midge spray! There's space in the garden to picnic and read. Wifi is free but patchy if a coach load of travellers are sucking it all up! Quite a few guests about - mostly younger travellers. Although groups were in the communal areas they were pretty much absorbed on their phones instead of making new friends - modern times tuh! Staff answered questions but didn't bowl me over with friendliness. We would definitely go back because of good value and location.

Coole Jugi an ruhiger Lage

Es ist eine sehr schöne, alte Villa; nicht perfekt unterhalten, aber Zimmer und Bad waren sauber, allerdings etwas Schimmel in der Duschkabine. Eigenes Bad für unser Zweierzimmer, allerdings nur über Gang erreichbar. Es wurde täglich geputzt, aber ich habe selten so unfreundliches Personal erlebt. Der Aufenthalt im Zimmer war zwischen 10:00 und 14:00 Uhr wegen Reinigung untersagt. Der kleine Hausladen machte durchaus auch mal vor 22:00 Uhr zu und man wurde sehr unfreundlich angeschnauzt, wenn man um 21:50 noch etwas wollte. Die Lage ist etwas abgelegen: 600 m zu Fuss von der Endstation einer Buslinie, aber dafür sehr ruhig, da von einem Wäldchen umgeben und mit genügend Parkplätzen. Bedenke, dass in diesen Breitengraden ein Hotel mit Klimaanlage seinen Preis wert sein könnte (hier nirgens vorhanden). Es war heiss.
