This is the cleanest hostel I've ever been to. I stayed four nights and wish I could have stayed longer. You are greeted with pancakes and get pancakes for breakfast. The location is wonderful, I woke up every morning with a view of the sea.
The staff were great, and the wiew from the balcony was beautiful. Loved the pancakes!
Great staff, great balcony view and very good atmosphere.
Very clean and well organised place. Helpful staff and only a few minutes walk from the seaside restaurants and bars. Nice view also over the bay!
Staff were nice but they seemed to be mostly volunteers who'd only been in Saranda/Albania for short lengths of time and didn't have accurate information. It was comfortable enough though and the pancakes for breakfast where a nice touch.
Our hosts were extremely helpful. They were always keeping the place tidy and helping out with things to do. The location is on the edge of town and can be tough to find. Overall it's a chill place to spend a few nights and explore Saranda. Thanks guys!
The apartment setup makes you feel right at home right away. The owner Cloudy is s super cool laidback dude with a genuine amiable and gentle personality.
Great view. Wonderful staff. And pancakes!!! Even had free beer almost every night!
This hostel was amazing! Klardi, who runs the hostel, is a seriously amazing host who worked really hard to make sure we had a great stay. There is amazing pancake breakfast an amazing view and awesome staff! Basically you have to stay here!
This hostel is great. Staff is very nice and helpful. The view from the hostel is amazing. It's also a great place to meet people. And you get free pancakes :-) I wish i could stay there for a whole month. :-) one of the best hostels i have ever staied in.
Really great little hostel. Very homely, communal vibe and the operator, Klardi, is the nicest, most helpful guy you're ever likely to meet. If that's not enough, there's also all you can eat pancakes for breakfast. Would absolutely recommend.
Super nice view and friendly/helpful staff! Great place to relax but not a party hostel.
Hairy Lemon was amazing! Great location.. super close to the beach and good places to grab a quick bite. Klardi, the manager, and the rest of the staff made the hostel feel like a family. He was always making sure everyone was okay and having a great time. Definitely will be back and highly recommend.
Absolutely loved my stay at the Hairy Lemon! Came for one night, ended up staying for many more. Klardi and the rest of the staff make the place feel like home, great communal atmosphere, everybody hangs out together, doing activities, having dinners, and going out for drinks. Location is ideal, a few meters away from a great beach and with an unbelievable sunset view from the balcony. Nothing at all to complain about.
Hairy Lemon is the kind of hostel that you can call it home. Klardi is one of the sweetest and amazing people i have met in my whole trip. He organized us everything we needed: from breakfast for when i was leaving early on the next day to day trips everywhere in the region! its def a MUST for all travellers in Saranda and Albania (i was actually going to Gjrokaster and changed my route to saranda instead because i had SO MANY travellers recomending Hairy Lemon.
The best hostel atmosphere I've had in two months of travel with the nicest manager. Travellers you must visit here!
Best host ever. But don't get used to it, as I couldn't find similar hospitality anywhere else

Excellent hostel! In addition to the location and facilities, the hospitality, kindness and helpful attitude from the staff makes Hair Lemon a fantastic place to stay in Saranda.
