Great hostel with friendly helpful staff. Awesome location close to beach and bus station, with a great balcony for viewing the sunset. Free pancakes for breakfast were an added bonus!

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here,Cloudy and the team make a hostel feel like home and will go out of their way to help you in anyway possible. Really enjoyed the organised hostel nights out and who could forget the view from the hostel and the pancakes. Very clean, lovely atmosphere and perfect location. Couldn't fault it.

This one easily the best hostel my brother and I stayed at in our two months travelling from Berlin down to Greece. The staff was extremely helpful, courteous, friendly, approachable, and all the other nice words that can come to mind. Every person who was saying here was also a similar group of down to earth, off the beaten path travelers with amazing stories to share, and in the three days we were here we made many new friends. If/when I come back to Saranda, this will be the place to stay.

Amazing location with one of the best views I have ever had at a hostel. That great balcony overlooking the beach is just the best place to have a beer while watching the sunset.. The only downside was the beds not very comfortable, and the wifi which was a bit erratic, but it probably was due to one particular guest who was always online downloading movies or something, so I guess it was not the hostel{s fault. Amazing, friendly and helpful staff.

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.

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!

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.

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.
