What a welcoming place. Very attentive yet allows you to do whatever you want. Great back yard to hang out at which serves food for $2.oo a meal and beer for about $1.00. Very clean with updated bathrooms ( major plus) and very hot water. Also easy to find and in the middle of the city.

Lovely couple of days in Tirana. Staff are super friendly and the courtyard bar is a great place to relax, have a drink and meet other travellers. Would certainly come back again. Easy to find, clean, comfortable and decent breakfast too.

We stayed here the first and last nights of our trip. Very nice place. Definitely one of the nicest hostels in Albania. They've got this great hippy style laidbackness going on. Without overdoing it. They serve some really proper food in their beautiful backyard-garden-bar. Extra points for sufficient veggie options! The facilities are clean. The staff is friendly and willing...

The hostel is central located. It is basically a bigger house which was transformed in a hostel. The best where ever you go are the people and here they were great. Close to the hostel there were a smaller and a bigger supermarket, and a really nice bakery. Wifi was good and there was a laptop available for all guests....

By far the most popular backpacker place in Tirana. I tried to get a bed here on two separate occasions, only to find it fully booked. Who knew so many backpackers came to Albania! The first time, the staff here sent me off to another hostel that was quite lovely (though I can't for the life of me remember the...

What an amazing and inspiring place. The staff are very helpful with recommendations and navigating Tirana. Highlight of our time in Tirana was going on a hike into a cave with the owner, on a path he built himself, and hearing his plans for the area. The rooms are neat, clean and warm (winter). The bar area was really nice...

Lovely hostel in a big high ceiling building so feels very spacious with lots of knooks and crannys to chill out. The staff were very helpful and were happy to offer advice about Tirana as well as onward travel. The place was clean and good value for money. Would certainly recommend for a stay in Tirana.
