Ostello del Chianti Reviews

Ostello di Chianti

o Hostel e excelente, os recepcionistas simpaticos e a cidade uma fofura.

Hostel limpo, no meio da Toscana e perto de Florenca.

Nice to relax

The rooms and bathrooms were clean and quite to sleep and there was a nice cheap breakfast. The location does take about an hour from Florence and if you want to visit Florence at night the bus don't work for that and you would have to get a cab but I must say that after spending the whole day walking in Florence going to Ostello del Chianti to relax was a very welcomed change. However, what puts this hostel over the top for me is how friendly the staff is. They are so down to earth and great to talk to and one of the managers even dined with me and shared stories and she even taught me some hungarian words when I told her I was going to Budapest and they shared tuscan whine with the guests. They really make an effort to make you feel good and they gave me that personal experience that I cherish the most about everywhere I visit so it was a joy for me to stay there. And hey, while checking out I even got a discount so I really can't complain about this place.

Ostello Del Chianti is everything a hostel should be. The staff is helpful and friendly. The accommodations are clean and fresh. The building is safe. And the location offers access to Florence, Siena, and the small towns of the Tuscan countryside.

The Location

Tucked away in the small wine-country town of Tavarnelle, Ostello Del Chianti is rare treat. Tavarnelle is thirty minutes, by bus, from Florence and the bus station is a five minute walk from the hostel. Busses are also available to other towns in the region and, with one transfer, to the popular walled fortress-town of Siena.

The town of Tavarnelle is charming and small. Surrounded by working vineyards and full of beautiful Tuscan houses, small cafes, and smiling Italians it is a great place to relax and explore as well as a great base for exploration of the more well-known cities of Tuscany.

Rooms and Bathrooms

Each guest is provided with impeccably clean accommodations (including free sheets), a large private locker (large enough to fit an entire hiking backpack inside), and the option of a two-euro Italian breakfast (pastries and coffee). Each guest is given an individual door key and the front desk is always manned when the hostel doors are unlocked, making the hostel incredibly secure. The hostel provides a small parking lot for those guests who may be driving in. And the staff is always available, helpful, and cheerful.

The hostel is closed for several hours every day to be cleaned. Upon returning the guests find ourselves astonished at how spotless it truly is. This hostel takes great pride in its clean bathrooms, rooms, and common areas.

Common Spaces

Outside the main lobby is a large common area with several chairs, a television, a couch, and access to the dining room. The kitchen is private, but the dining area is open to the guests, with its tables and chairs providing the ideal area for chatting, card playing, or eating some snacks from the local grocer.

There are also several outdoor spaces--a terrace and two patios--with tables and chairs for guest use.

It's a very friendly hostel and encourages, with its wide range of common areas, the guests to intermix and be social. At the same time it manages to keep common areas separate from rooms and keep the noise level at a reasonable level.


Whether you are a backpacker traveling alone through Europe, a family looking to get away in the Tuscan countryside, or a group interested in Chianti wine this is a great an inexpensive place to stay. They take great pride in security, cleanliness, and friendliness. And bus access is easy and close.

As we heard that in Italy all hostels are full during summer, we made a reseervation also for this one. But it was not necessary, because we were only round about 6 people at all. So we had a 2 bed room on our own. I guess during summer it is always like this, because this village isn't that easy to reach (but busses are often enough going to florence and siena) and the region isn't that touristical. Maybe it is more for groups (classes). The hostel is in a grey concrete building, the common hostel style, but clean. Because of few people, the kitchen was closed, but we got some dices when we asked for this. In the morning you have to leave untill the cleaning time, otherwise you will be "kicked out" as happend to us at the last day, so we forgot to take pictures.

The village is nice, there is also a Coop-Shop with quite long opening hours, some bars as well. The tourist info is very kind and gave us some tips about walking in the surrounding, so we had a good stay at all!
