Staying at Florian Shkodra Guesthouse was one of the best experiences I've had in all of my travels. The "owner" of the place, Florian (because he oversees it with his family) is quite possibly the kindest, most helpful, honest people I've been lucky enough to have met on my travels. The night I arrived, the family were having a lamb feast, and the food was amazing! Florian's family are really kind, welcoming, & informative. He's probably the best person in the Balkans for Hospitality. Go there!
My stay at Florians's guesthouse was more than just a pleasurable stay. Florian took time to give me some great advises about where to go and how to get around etc. I have to mention the food at the guesthouse, it was all homemade and homegrown including the wine! I even got to se how rakija is produced, it was such an authentic experience i got at this place. Thank you Florian for giving me an amazing time at your guesthouse :D
The family is helpful and welcoming Particularly liked the home cooked food, which is vegetarian and organic from their own farm. The free flowing wine from there own small vineyard also helps with socialising with other guests. Whilst it is on the outskirts of town free bikes are on hand and it's only a 10 minute bike ride to the centre if you want to visit the town. Florian organises tours if you want to explore the surroundings or go hiking in the hills.
I had a great stay at Florian's. He and his family are just amazing. They all care really good for their guests! Florian organises, his mother cooks and his father makes really good wine! And don't forget to buy some of his father's home made raki:-) Thanks a lot for everything Florian! Best wishes from Switzerland
Hospitality and Albanians go together like peanut butter and jelly - Florian is no exception. I came because of a recommendation of a friend and I didn't get disappointed. It doesn't feel like a hostel, but more like a stay at a friend's place. The food he serves is really good and all from his garden - soit's the wine and Rakija that will be served after dinner. I very much enjoyed my stay and it's quite the character. As well he can organize transportation and tours. Thumbs up

We stayed for five days at the Guesthouse and had a really good time. Everyone was friendly and we met a lot of people from almost every origin around the world. In the evenings at dinner there was always a good atmosphere and a lot of storys were told. We had good homemade and homegrown food and wine. The owner can organise at least every trip you want to do. It´s a little bit outside the city center but with the bikes you are in town in 10 minutes or at the lake in 20. Had a great time.
