About Ostello del Bigallo – Bigallo Hostel
The Bigallo Hostel is also a place to meet new friends and get to know local people; a place where you can participate in the various events and cultural and social activities that we organize. It is also a lovely location to celebrate your wedding or anniversary in our Ceremony hall and in the Santa Maria di Fonteviva Chapel.
A perfect location for large organized groups. For groups over 18 people we offer a free set of towels, and on request we prepare some typical tuscan menus for lunch or dinner or a take away picnic box. Our parking place is large enough for 1 or 2 busses. For stays of at least 3 nights we organize a one night entertainment.
If you’re travelling with your friends, family, or in an organized group, we suggest that you choose one of our luminous dormitories – one that sleeps 5 and the other 8; an ideal solution given their spaciousness and comfort.
The décor was created by local craftsmen following designs of renaissance beds found in paintings from that time period. Each bed has its own storage space (locks can be requested at your arrival).
Each dormitory is equipped with shared bathroom with shower. It is possible to request a set of towels with a supplement of €. 3,00.
Sleeping in the alcoves is without doubt the most unique solution that the Bigallo Hostel proposes. It is inspired by monks, that traditionally slept in small wooden alcoves. The Hostel offers 20 beds in the wooden alcoves, each alcove with two single beds, creating a spacious and luminous dormitory. The bathrooms are shared. It is possible to request a set of towels with a supplement of €. 3,00.
And if you prefer some more privacy, just chose one of our 6 double rooms (with the possibility to add one or more single beds), all equipped with private bathrooms with shower. It is also possible to add one or more single beds in the rooms. Sheets, towels and daily cleaning are included in this accomodation.

15/20 km. from the Chianti wine district,
45 km. from San Gimignano,
60 km. from Siena,
100 km. from Pisa,
We recommend to reach our Bigallo Hostel by proper means - car, bicycle, motorbike. By public transport the nearest bus stop is at 1km from our Hostel ( uphill about 20 minutes)
