Beautiful location and perfect breakfast that I was looking forward to every morning... Add to that friendly, knowledgeable and personable staff, a huge garden area, spacious and clean toilet&shower facilities, and warm rooms (even in the coldest of winters!) and you have a wonderful spot to call home during your time in Tirana.

A very friendly welcome, nice dog, and a great vege meal at a decent price. Good location, and not too many types talking about travel. The top point was the breakfast, and of course the evening meals, the only - was that the bar had to close at UK times.

Room was comfortable even with 5 more people. Backyard full of couches and it was a great place to chill. What's more they have their own bar, so you can stay there and meet new friends. Breakfast included! Awesome place to stay in Tirane.

Real friendly staff, great garden out back with food, bar and games which is ideal for meeting other travellers. They also organise some amazing hiking tours to cave/waterfalls etc that are worth staying in the hostel for this reason alone! They also have loads of secure space to lock up bikes etc. Some reviews have said there isn't many bathroom...

I have been there three times and will stay there again. The location is great, you can walk almost everywhere. Hostel is very well furnished, really cozy and charming. Common areas are nice too. It's a hostel with a spirit, highly recommended.

This popular hostel has an ideal central location and is a great place for meeting other travelers. The staff is helpful and attentive and the breakfast is good. The garden area is especially nice. You might sleep more soundly and comfortably at another hostel (beds are basic) but overall, great hostel.

We stayed for one night in the private room. The location of the hostel is great. The room was clean. The shared bathroom was good with lots of hots water. The bathroom was okay-clean. Breakfast was quite basic. Staff was very friendly. There is better value for money found in the "private room price range".

The beds was ok, and the rooms was big, we had great space even with a extra bed. The social area was nice, good place and nice decoratet. The breakfast was not good at...

“If you want a private room, get a double room inside the house, not a cabin outside. The double rooms are more expensive, but worth it.”
