Great chilled out vibe. Staff were friendly & helpful. Loved the location.


You do not have to be rich to stay in one of Berat s magnificent traditional houses, this hostel makes it all possible for you. The garden is also very attractive, with vines and fig trees. The location on the opposite side of the river is quiet and attractive. The staff is kind, the breaakfast good. The beds are not made for very tall and/or big people though.


Great hostel with fantastic common space and good breakfast. And a fridge full of delicious beer.


Great place! Hopefully some new staff have arrived but our room was great and it's an easy place to meet other travellers.


Good staff, nice other vacationeers that not without reason return every year, and a great location in the heart of the old town. Try to let them know that you would like to join for the dinner in advance; it's a great way to get to know cool people.


All in all, a good option in Berat!


Very nice building in the heart of the old town, with nice chill-out areas. Raki flows freely.

Beautiful traditional house in the old neighborhood, very friendly staff and a nice breakfast. Will definitely come back!


Really a very lovely place


If you are an avid traveler, and believe in a good night’s sleep so you can enjoy your tours along with leaving to go to your next destination in good spirits. DON’T GO TO THIS PLACE!


We really enjoyed our time at Berat Backpackers Hostel. Scotty and his team are really getting it right. The hostel has great atmosphere - it really feels like the sort of welcoming place where you could easily spend a week or two. The staff are really friendly and the hostel itself is really clean and well laid out. The outdoor common area in particular is a great place to kick back with some cheap Albanian beer or wine. We'll definitely be back to this little piece of paradise.


Please, add some mirrors in the rooms!


Lovely hostel , very helpful staff.


Scotties the host with the most!


Loved the stay. Excellent group of people to hang out with and a nice patio area to sit and have a few drinks at night. It's located in the middle of the old town and the owner seems to like I make sure guests are having a good time. Definitely recommended.


This is one of the most beautiful hostels I have ever stayed at, overlooking the historic town and with a courtyard covered in grape vines. The staff is incredible, the facilities are great, and they even offer cheap tours to some of the natural wonders nearby! I can't wait to go back.


Amazing hostel and in the most beautiful setting. We only planned to stay one night but stayes an extra night. Great excursion to the waterfall, amazing value for money.


It was incredibly hot in Berat and the private room has no fan or a/c so sleeping was impossible. It was even more impossible with the loud music and party outside the window both nights until well past 3am. We got up on our last morning to find Scotty passed out on the floor and then falling into the bushes because he was still so drunk. Also, if you are travelling further you need to work out transport yourself as the staff don't have any knowledge about Albania. the breakfast was good.
