Disliked: The tent was covered in bugs and cobwebs and the bathrooms where in awful condition, very dirty and smelly and I had to have an extremely cold shower as the water wouldn't get warm.

Liked: You can not find a better location than this place!!! It is less than five minutes walk to Piazzale Michelangelo where you have the best view of the city. The staff was very helpful recommending places to see. The bar is great to meet people, perfect size pizza at a great price, and the bar staff were truly wonderful. I loved my experience.

Disliked: There is no internet so don't count on it to book any future travel plans and the outlets are limited for charging appliances. But neither of these things would prevent me from coming back.

Liked: The views really are good, the tents are good enough, the prices are good, the food is good and a wine bottle for 10e is nice bonus.

Disliked: Only cold water, very dirty bathrooms / toilets, staff wasn't very helpful, the wi-fi was working very poorly, you have to travel a long bus ride from the city to get there. People can be very noisy through the night, which prevents from sleeping well.

Liked: The place is located near Michelangelo Piazza, where there is a nice view of florence. It's about 25 minutes by bus from the station. You can walk from the place to the centre for about 20 minutes. They do have a wifi but it's only on a specific location. If you want a kinda 'camping' feel then this is the place but for a person like me who is reliant to electricity and wifi for my gadgets then not really my place.

Disliked: Wifi is located in just a specific area. So there's no wifi in the tent you sleep in. The bathrooms are not really as organised as they should have been. The doors don't have any locks, showers are broken and it's messy. No sockets inside the tent. If you want to charge your phones/computer/or camera then you have to stay outside in there 'wifi/charging' area. They do have services like bar but it's obviously a ripped-off.

Liked: The best thing of this hostel is the view to outside..

Disliked: Ok, its a camping, but do we really have to go wild? I mean, just 5 plugs og energy for the whole hostel? Dirty Baths! Despite it is a camping site, it is noisy because they have a boite as neighboor. Pay a little bit more and stay in downtown Florence which is an amazing city.

Liked: great location and many TV screens to see the world cup, the pizza in the restaurant is tasty

Disliked: it is dirty and old and it seems that no one really cares that much about it. The "supermarket" is closed since a long tiime. The showers are dirty and during my 3 day stay I there was often no toilet paper in the bathrooms!

Liked: There was just one social area so everyone on site would congregate there in the evening which made it great for meeting people, you have an amazing view over the city of Florence and you get the feeling you are out in the countryside while only being 10-15 mins walk from the city! Really cool place.

Disliked: The bar is obscenely expensive meaning everyone bought there first drink there by accident then went to the shops for any more (you can take in your own since the bar is the social area) the supermarket wasn't open the whole time we were there and they didn't seem to have any detergent for the washing machines so nobody seemed to be able to direct us to a proper supermarket, they seem to be pretty rare in Florence!

Liked: This property certainly had a lot of potential, but unfortunately did not live up to its own standards. If everything advertised was functioning, it would have been much better. The location was great and there was a wonderful view from the property, and an even better, famous, view just a few minutes walk away.

Disliked: Our tent was full of spiders. I woke up with at least 10 bug bites on my leg. All of the great things advertised were not functioning. The market, bar, and pizzeria were all closed. There was no wifi. The showers were full of bugs and disgusting.
