My wife and I stayed here this September and would recommend it to anyone and everyone going to the Costa Brava for a holiday. We stayed for 4 nights and the service was great. The receptionist gave great hints for excursions, the bar staff were BEAUTIFUL and the whole place was very clean (as mentioned in all the other posts... More

Dear Oscar and Caitlin Thankyou for taking the time and writing your brilliant review. It was extremely kind of you and very accurate. Even down to me vacuuming my grass. I do like a tidy ship! Or in our case garden. We can only try our hardest to make our visitors comfortable with what we have at the moment. We... More

We were on a long trip so opted for this lower budget option and we were not disappointed, Wow! I want them to decorate my back yard lol This B&B is close to the main attraction, namely the waterfront and the old fortifications. Breathtaking views, tons of shops, cafés and restaurants closeby and the hotel is also very close to... More

We did not stay here but found the bar and beautiful garden while looking for somewhere to watch the Barcelona football match on TV. We were so pleased we did and went back everyday of our holiday. Each night there was a different singer on in the garden and they were all good. The staff are friendly and the atmosphere... More

We were there in early september. I found this family run hostel quite unique. It has a garden where you can sit and enjoy a drink (lovely sangria and the coolest estrella ever). They had a flamenco show that friday night and it was really good. They also were presenting an exhibition of photographs of la Costa Brava. The photos... More

Thankyou so much for taking the time and giving us a glowing review.

Excellent, centrally located hostel. Rooms are spacious, extremely clean and have private bathrooms and balconies that are major added value. Breakfast is delicious. The staff is very welcoming and will answer any question about the region. I recommend to anyone traveling on a budget.

We didn't stay here but were captivated by the music they were playing in their pretty Romatic Garden. They singers were from the Chereys Swiss restaurant/bar next door. It was the last night of our holiday we only went in for a beer and stayed all night. The music and setting was absolutely fantastic. Thanks

12 months later back we were in Andrea's garden, still the same delightful drinks, staff and high standard. Thank you Andrea for listening to my grumbles about the return transfer - it turned up - and my moans about French Air Traffic Control!! Gin and Tonic still the best in Tossa. See you next year.
