Wow.... where to begin! The views from the balcony was beautiful. All the guests and the hosts Corey and Brianna hang out and watch the sun go down together. It was like old friends catching up! The set up is like an apartment converted to have more people! I loved the breakfast and Brianna whipped up some killer dinners for...

Staying here was like hanging out at a friends house. Corey and Brianna were amazing hosts and treated us like family. Loved the mexican and curry dinners she made and their flavored Raki was delicious!!!

Awesome hostel in a converted apartment with great views of the beach and a super friendly staff. Always heaps of activities and really easy to make friends at this hostel - it made staying in Saranda lots of fun! The free pancakes every morning are a nice addition too :)

The Hairy Lemon was a really different experience- very chilled atmosphere and great volunteers and manager! It is set in an apartment so everyone is close and always running into each other so it was more like a big family. Some people stayed for more than a week because they couldn't leave! The beach is so close and we played...

Cannot fault the place. Amazing view from the balcony and amazing pancakes! The best part though was the host, he made it feel like home and would go out of his way to do anything for you, he was a great laugh too!! Will definitely be going back here when I visit Saranda again, hopefully very soon

It is literally impossible to find this place, maybe that hide and seek is even part of the charm. Alright, let me help out here. It is on the 8th floor, last door to the left, the left door. Once, you step in. You are greeted like family, went out for a stroll and came back. I loved it. The...

I stayed in Sarande for almost a week and loved this place. It felt like everyone was family sharing an apartement. The people were very helpful and friendly, helping me with all the day trips I planned. The rooms can get hot in summer, so two nights I slept on the pillows on the balcony. I didn't mind though. It...

Loved it! A cheap, homely hostel with all you can eat pancakes for Brekkie! On the 8th floor of an apartment building so a little hard to find but well worth the view. The beds are nice and the staff are extremely friendly and accommodating for whatever you need. They even have free snorkels you can borrow for the day...

The location is in a building at 8th floor and very close to the sea; this means basically one thing: great view and unforgettable sunsets! The manager is very nice and the staff too. Breakfast is included in the price; clean rooms and toilets. On their web site they accurately indicate how to get to the Hostel and how individuate...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
If Heaven were a hostel, Sarandas ‘Hairy Lemon Hostel’ would be it! Our accommodation is set in a modern apartment building, that’s central, Just a few minutes walk and you’re bang, smack in the middle of where its at! Should you need to cool off, we’re just 20 metres from the sea. Tastefully stylish throughout, with a chill-out area to meet everyone and hear tales of …. well, nearly truths! Relax on one of our balconies and make sure the sun goes down! Enjoy the stunning views across the sea to the beautiful island of Corfu to round off a splendid day of adventure. We have the comfiest hand-crafted beds, so gooood… only the smell of freshly brewed coffee could tempt you from your cocoon! All excuses aside, we have a fully equipped self-catering kitchen, where you can show off your gastronomical delights! And a barbeque spot, especially for seafood hotties. We’re a small, cosy hostel, perfect to mix and mingle with our friends from around the globe. ... more   less
