The staff are really helpful especially when booking tours. I understand that they want to make an authentic breakfast but I would have appreciated it if there had been something other than cake.

Hi!! Thanks a lot for taking some of your time to write to us; your words are very important to improve our hostel. About the breakfast we have a healthy alternative for those who cannot or don't like the homemade cakes that we offer. Fruits mix with yogurt and cereals are the option that we include too in the mornings. Always with tea, coffee or chocolate. May be we weren't clear enough about it and we sorry about that. Thanks for your nice words about the staff! Have a wonderful trip!


Good place to stay, I stayed in a 8 bed dorm but it didn't really feel that there were 8 people, there is enough space and the beds are separated from one another. The staff was very helpful and friendly, the situation of the rooms, around a small garden, makes it very easy to meet other people. Definitely would recommend this hostel.


This is a very nice place to stay. The staff is very friendly and helpfull and the breakfast is very nice. No dislikes at all


Super friendly staff, great location and excellent facilities. Would highly recommend this hostel!

We had a very nice stay here. The staff makes you feel at home. They are very attentive and really help you with all the organisational stuff (tours, recommendations, etc.). The little garden is a really nice place to hang out. The variety of guests (backpacker, families, etc.) creates a very good atmosphere. Thank you!


The kitchengear was very old and need to be reniewed. The pc and monitor to be used by the guests were very old and also have to be replaced. You cannot get a print of a personal E-mail needed as traveldocument. You have to go to the busstation to get a print! The price for a double room ensuite was very high. For the same costs you Could have booked a Nice hotel. Breakfast was very minimal with only sweet cakes.

Good clean hostel, close to beach and bus terminal. Helpful and friendly staff. I slept in 8 bed dorm, was a bit concerned but it is relatively private and people were respectfully quiet. Two kitchens well stocked with equipment.


The hostel is really nice and just 10min walk from the ocean(main streets) and 5min walk from the bus station. The staff is helpful and the internet is good maily in the loby but sometimes also in the room.


La Tosca is a good hostel. We stayed there for 4 nights. The staff is friendly and helpfull. They greet you by name. They give you all information you need. The rooms and bathroom are basic but good. We slept next to the kitchen which was some noisy at night. The breakfast was simple, you get some homemade cake and fresh coffee.


The staff is very friendly and happy to help with everything. We booked a twin room and got a 2 bed dorm room which felt like a prison cell....quite awful really. The common room was very small but there is a nice area outside to sit. Fairly central, approx 10 min walk to the beach.
