Ostello del Chianti

Photos Facilities Map Streetview Reviews

The Chianti youth hostel is in Tavernelle Val di Pesa - about 23 km south of Florence in the heart of the Chianti region, where the most famous of Italian wine is made.

The SITA buses run very frequently on weekdays ( less frequently on saturdays and Sundays ) from the SITA terminal beside the central train station in Florence reaching the Hostel in Tavarnelle in less than an hour.

We offer you the opportunity of a holiday in one of the most beautiful and famous regions of Italy with the comforts of an hotel at hostel prices.

A heaven of tranquillity where you can discover flavours and colours of Tuscany in a friendly and peaceful atmosphere.

Here you will find beautyful scenery, excellent Wines and cuisine, but also delightful

medieval villages and world famous art cities such as Florence which can be reached in 25 minutes by car and siena in 35 minutes. Six kilometres from the hostel there is a sports center with swimming pool and tennis courts; right beside the hostel there is a park with a rink for roller-skating and a children's playground. As well, in the neighbourhood there are beautiful treks to do and it is also possible to rent bycicles and horses.

Please note, if you are not a Member of Hostelling International there is an extra charge of 3 per person per night. Once you have stayed 6 nights at a HI Hostel you become a HI member, and no extra charges apply for future stays.

Rooms are available form 4:00 P.M.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Aussie reviews are the most honest and describing IE: no bull ...After surviving the filth and dodgyness of Florrence, and i dont know why people rave about it, its a dirty place, full of dodgy dudes. We were glad to escape to the country. Sylvia was wonderful and welcoming and just a nice person to welcome us in, mind you you have to wait until after siesta 4 pm to book in, the hostel had lots of backpackers and we enjoyed our stay in a family room. The room was comfy, nice showers, balcony. Decent beds. no fans or air con, thank god it cooled off a bit at night. June 2012. Declan was just as welcoming after taking over from Sylvia. the town is quite nice with a good Co-op . But no one or shops believe in ice or cold beer. The hostel has laundry facilities and plenty of space. As an Aussie , we liked it. I would reccomend this place.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Loved it. The night we spent at this hostel- visiting Barbarino- and the next day when we biked around the city- was the best of the whole trip.
