Florian was an unbelievable host at his Guest House, which is a family atmosphere. He really makes you feel at home. Simply put, he's a great guy, one of the nicest hosts I've had. The dinner was very good, so was breakfast, and Florian helped me with awesome recommendations in Kosovo, Sarajevo, and surrounding countries. Continued to help even when I left. Stay here, you won't be disappointed!


I love this hostel! Florian and his family were so warm and friendly. This place reminded me of the house of my grandma :) Breakfast and Dinner that florian's mom cooked every time were so delicious. This place is not closed to city center. However you can rent a bicycle for free and ride to city center, fortress and anywhere you want. He also arranged for me a transportation to Montenegro...so it maked me easy to travel around Shkodra. I was so happy to stay here and I will definitely go back!


Nice family atmosphere,Florian is very helpful with info for your trip around Albania.A great first stop from Montenegro.Stay in his other hostel in the city centre,great location,if heading south on train which leaves very early next morning.


Florian is very hospitable. The guesthouse is an oasis in Northern Albania. Florian greets you and welcomes you with open arms. His cooking is unbelievable, great Eastern European Cuisine. The hostel is clean and comfortable and he offers knowledge about the local area. I wouldn't hesitate to send a friend to Florians Guest House or stay again myself!


Staying at Florian's place made my stay in Albania that much better! He was extremely prompt in emailing me as soon as I had booked with taxi pick up options and then he took me for a tour a few hours after I arrived. The guest house was very pleasant, quiet and homely. Every night there was home grown Albanian cuisine and drinks that came directly from the garden. There were some bikes free to use also which made the trip into town quick and easy. I Recommend this place highly. Thanks Florian!

Florian's guesthouse is the place to be in Shkoder. Just outside the city centre in a beautiful farmhouse, it is the best place to relax, especially after long hiking trips in the mountains nearby. I stayed twice at Florian's who is a great host with lots of stories to tell. I want to recommend his mother's cooking and the great dinners. And of course his own wine.


Had a wonderful time with Florian. He helped organize a fantastic tour and trip. The food was excellent as was picking grapes from the vine to eat. You will love your stay.

The place is nice, quiet and clean. Its a bit far out but they provide you with bikes, but in the evenings you probably end up having dinner at the hostel which is a bit more expensive then eating in restaurants in Albania (and they don't serve meat). However, it's really nice to eat all together. Florian tried really hard to help us with seeing the surroundings (lake Koman) but seemed to be a bit disappointed or annoyed when we chose to go with someone else on a day trip.


I had the best experience staying at Florian's guesthouse! As soon as we entered we felt at home and the atmosphere was great. Florian is a fun, friendly and kind person. He organised our transport to get to Montenegro the next day which was really helpful. Dinner, breakfast, tour of sights


Florian helped us sort out some good accommodation in Valbona and also transfers to Valbona. The hostel has a really nice setting just out of town and he has free bikes to help you get back into town quickly if you want


Nice setting in the large and productive garden of a large and productive home. Florian offers a free and filling breakfast, free use of basic bicycles, and inexpensive vegetarian dinners.


Exactly what I was looking for: a relaxing, peaceful, authentic introduction to Albania. Thank you Florian and family. I had a wonderful time at your guest house. Austin
