Welcome to our hostel

Welcome to hostel Empúries! We are perfectly located in the middle of the gulf of Roses, between the greco-roman ruins of Empuries and the fishing village of L'Escala. This is a typical farmhouse of the Empordà, built on two floors and recently refurbished, the hostel is surrounded by a great forest and is only 50 meters from the beach.

Great location. Could hear the surf in the distance at night. Close to Greek acropolis, Roman ruins and bike/ pedestrian path along beach through wooded dunes that extends for miles and miles. Reasonably close to City Center. A little tricky to find hostel upon arriving in town by bus and directions not posted on site. Had to ask for directions several times.

No puc valorar res perquè Coordinadora de Reserves i Àrea de Programes XANASCAT Agència Catalana de la Joventut, va dir que per una errada informàtica la plaça meva estava ja donada als monitors d'un grup de nens.
