Extremely kind staff (receptionist, waiters, kitchen staff, cleaning staff), authentic building in a beautiful and peaceful location, within easy reach of the sea and beautiful mountain cities. We really want to come back!
stayed from 07/30/2023 to 08/05/2023
Pleasant and strategic place to visit the beautiful places of Maremma. Definitely worth coming back.

I used a hostel for the first time, but this structure is very close to a hotel as well. The double bed room is very spacious with an equally spacious bathroom. I couldn't have breakfast only because I had to leave at 05.30 in the morning. Overall, the judgment is positive.
stayed from 09/03/2021 to 09/04/2021
Nice location, I was traveling by motorcycle so even though it's a bit out of town, it didn't cause me any problems.
stayed from 09/03/2021 to 09/05/2021
Excellent reception, delicious dinner.
stayed from 08/06/2021 to 08/07/2021
The location of the hostel allows you to fully enjoy a pleasant climate even during the month of August. During the stay, you benefit from peace and tranquility. The room is essential but comfortable and bright with the advantage of a balcony from which you can enjoy the view of the beautiful surrounding landscape. Excellent choice to include fresh cakes made in the structure's kitchen in the breakfast.
stayed from 08/02/2021 to 08/06/2021
Charming place, convenient for visiting the area and reaching the beautiful nearby seaside spots; it offers what is needed and everyone is very kind.
stayed from 08/15/2021 to 08/16/2021
Generous hospitality in a place inspired by nature. Recommended for those who love simple and authentic hospitality. Thank you.
stayed from 07/19/2021 to 07/22/2021
A bit out of the way but very nice!
stayed from 06/26/2021 to 06/27/2021
The Wi-Fi needs improvement. Fortunately, I didn't need it but in case of necessity, not having data and Wi-Fi in the room could cause inconvenience.

The answer from the host:
Gentilissima, purtroppo ci sono cose che è possibile fare e altre che non lo sono. Ho visto dai suoi giudizi specifici che ha assegnato un punteggio basso alla colazione e al wi-fi: 1 - Nel caso della colazione, ahimè, con le norme anticovid non è possibile fare di più. Stiamo già facendo un grossissimo sforzo. Abbiamo una persona ad assistervi e un buffet di dolci freschi. Purtroppo la fila è obbligatoria e le quantità in prima battute sono limitate al vassoio. Potevate tornare indietro e rifare la fila. Capisco la scocciatura, ma non so davvero come ovviare. 2 - Il wifi. Pure se avessimo una rete capillarmente diffusa in tutto l'ostello ci sarebbero grossi problemi. A monte di qualsiasi rete ci deve essere un accesso ad internet e nella posizione in cui si trova l'ostello possiamo solo avere una Adsl di Telecom a 4mb. Avere un wifi diffuso e capillare peggiorerebbe solamente la situazione. Non vi sono altre soluzioni. CI troviamo in un cono tra monte Calvi e la Rocca di San Silvestro per il quale anche le connessione satellitari o via radio, purtroppo non arrivano. Unica soluzione e Telecom adsl a 4mb. Spiacenti!

An oasis of peace where one feels at home. Beautiful place with exceptional quality/price ratio. We also had dinner at the Student's Hostel Gowett, the dinner was delicious!
stayed from 06/03/2021 to 06/04/2021
The answer from the host:
Grazie, mi dispiace per il voto della colazione e mi scuso con voi. In genere le nostre colazioni sono sempre state un punto di forza, ma il nuovo personale e le norme anticovid non ci hanno permesso di lasciarvi soddisfatti. Chiediamo scusa!
Beautiful experience. Friendly and helpful manager. Structure immersed in the greenery of the Archeominerario di San Silvestro Park. San Vincenzo and Campiglia easily reachable. Abundant breakfast, excellent room cleanliness.

Considering the beautiful location and the remarkable potential of the property, by taking better care of some details, the pleasantness of the stay would greatly improve. Some examples: better lighting in the bathrooms and rooms, more thorough cleaning, provision of bedside tables and shower mats. That said, breakfasts are good and plentiful, the staff is friendly and helpful, and the evening dinner is also excellent.
stayed from 08/15/2020 to 08/23/2020
Hostel is positioned very well, close to all the surrounding villages. Clean, hospitable and with helpful and welcoming staff!
stayed from 08/23/2020 to 08/30/2020
Nice facility and welcoming staff. Recommended. Suggestion: Pay attention to the road signs as maps mistakenly take you on a dirt road. The road to reach the Student's Hostel Gowett is completely paved.
stayed from 08/29/2020 to 08/30/2020
A special place for those who don't have big expectations and love tranquility, cool, immersed in the quarries. Alessio and all the staff are very kind and also know how to recommend great places to eat.
stayed from 08/26/2020 to 08/29/2020
The structure is very beautiful, immersed in a stunning park, at night you can see the stars very well! Close to the main beaches and villages in the area. The managers are very kind and helpful. The breakfast is really abundant, the only flaw perhaps, for us who are sensitive, is the use of many disposable single portions, maybe due to the new anti-Covid regulations. We had a great time! Recommended!

Grazie per il commento positivo. Ci dispiace che, nonostante i nostri sforzi, abbia giudicato la nostra colazione appena sufficiente. Speriamo di poterla avere nuovamente nostra ospite quando l'emergenza Covid sarà finita!

Good structure well managed by helpful and prepared staff, recommended.

The answer from the host:
Alessio & Antonella are exquisite and always available people, they manage the accommodation facility with professionalism and attention. Excellent breakfast in terms of quality and quantity, the rooms are essential but functional. \nExaggerated quality-price ratio. \nThe stay at 'Govett' palace is definitely an experience to repeat and recommend.
stayed from 07/10/2020 to 07/13/2020
The answer from the host:
Wonderful and peaceful place, surrounded by a large park and a few kilometers from many beauties. Welcoming and friendly hosts, always with something interesting to tell. Excellent breakfast, made in absolute peace!

I had already been their guest and the choice was positively rewarded by the magical place where to rest and enjoy the view among the greenery and the sound of birds in the morning. Kind and helpful reception. Great breakfast. I will return for the next stays in the area.
stayed from 07/14/2018 to 07/15/2018
I came with two friends for a weekend, and we had a very good time, it is very spartan (as indeed a hostel should be) but comfortable. Maybe some details should be taken care of more, like the shower mat, to avoid flooding everything. But, as I said, they are details. I will definitely come back.
stayed from 06/22/2018 to 06/24/2018
I stayed one night with 10 other friends. Excellent structure in the area with a spectacular view, in the middle of a mining valley. Excellent value for money. I will come back.
stayed from 08/19/2017 to 08/20/2017
Great hostel. Clean and comfortable. Large rooms with en-suite bathroom. Good breakfast. Beautiful location but a car is necessary. Friendly staff.
stayed from 06/02/2017 to 06/03/2017
Welcoming, simple and clean environment. Comfortable beds and well-equipped private bathroom in the room. Nice location in the greenery of San Silvestro Park and close to the famous locations of Campiglia Marittima and San Vincenzo. Nice welcome and availability of the manager. Truly a pleasant experience.
stayed from 04/28/2017 to 05/01/2017
Consigliato per chi porta con se l'amico a quattro zampe. Grazie a tutto lo staff.
stayed from 08/24/2015 to 08/29/2015
La posizione della struttura è spettacolare: immersi nella natura e isolati dal resto del mondo (ma raggiungibile in soli 10 minuti d'auto, se proprio se ne sente la mancanza). Ottima l'accoglienza del gestore: ha compreso le nostre esigenze (due bambini piccoli) e ci ha dato consigli e indicazioni, su posti da vedere e locali da frequentare, davvero graditi.
stayed from 05/31/2014 to 06/02/2014
Ci siamo trovati bene, in un posto pulito, accogliente e molto particolare dal punto di vista paesaggistico, infatti il posto è davvero particolare, per la posizione e la storia della struttura. Da tenere presente.
