Location is near autobus and minibus station. If you want to explore surroundings without car, it is very useful. Wireless internet was very good and atmosphere was very friendly. Of course I met some small problems. they are part of life :) but owner is very helpful and friendly so they were solved, no problem ...

The "Opening hours" of the front door/ reception, some additional lockers and a sign where to find the hostel would be good. There is not a "hostel atmosphere" yet. Good luck for the future!


Wonderful new hostel conveniently located in centre of town, near to supermarkets, buses, banks and other amenities and only 5 minutes walk to the promenade with all the best restaurants and cafes and the beaches. Dolphin is run by a very helpful young local, who is also a chess champion! The rooms are large and airy and there is a large kitchen and a comfortable, homey atmosphere. The verandah, under a canopy of grapevines, with a view across the town to the sea is a cool place to hang out.

A new hostel with a refreshing feel. It is spacious with a laid back atmosphere, in an easy to find location near buses, not far from beach, close to everything you need in the town. Best of all it is in an authentic Albanian villa style house with a superb veranda. OK not top ratings because it has only just opened, with work in progress to make it good, but I would return again. Great choice for travellers who value privacy and personal space rather than cramped, 'buddy-style' accommodation.
