Disliked: Was not social at all if that's what you are looking for (no central room), but I wasn't looking for that so this was entirely perfect!!

Liked: Although the hostel is not in the town it is really close so its location is not a problem and you will be able to visit the town whenever you want. The facilities of the hostel are really beatiful and surrounded by a peaceful atmosphere. The place is really clean and the staff is friendly and hepfull. I highly recommend this hostel.

Disliked: Juan Bautist left no negative feedback.

Liked: Lockers were available in the room and the staff was nice.

Disliked: They barely offer anything for free, there is not even sope in the restrooms. Wi-Fi is only available in the reception-area and costs 3€ per 8 hours. Also the breakfast is quite expensive with 6€. For visiting the area not by car, it is a little bit too far from everything..

Liked: We booked a dorm and got a room with four beds which was very clean and spacious all to ourselves! The room was quite nice and had a nice connecting bathroom with the dorm next door.

Disliked: The property is a 20-30 minute walk from the Volterra town centre. It was fine on the days we travelled but if was cold/wet/late at night/you had a lot of luggage it would not be pleasant. Breakfast was a bit expensive at 6 euro.

Liked: The room was clean and not crowded. A big hostel with spacy rooms.

Disliked: The garden that was pictured on the website was in reality a little courtyard. That might be nicer at summertime. The breakfast was not included in the price. The location was remote from the city and there were no good restaurants of cafe's nearby.

Liked: beautiful breakfast room

Disliked: hostel needs better signposts, there is one about 2km away then nothing, in an otherwise fairly desolate spot. not fun when you are walking with a pack at night wondering if you are going in the wrong direction.
