The Youth Hostel Villa Camerata in Florence, is part of the Hostelling International, association of Hostels in Italy.
The Villa containing the hostel dates from the 15th century and is within a huge green park. But that's not all. The garden that surrounds it is a very precious botanical garden containing rare and unusual essences of vegetables, patiently cared for by the elderly owner.
You will never forget a vacation spent in Firenze, a base for discovering this splendid Tuscan provincial center - a city rich with elegant architectural form, a pleasure for all to take in.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?
The hostel has a small market and they also offer meals for a fair price!
It´s a little far away form all of the main attractions but you can take a bus downtown.
The 400 mts walk from the bus stop to the hostel is kinda scary, but the place is really nice.
Customer service was really bad! REceptionists were very rude and not very helpful.
