I don't recommend 6 bed dorm in WINTER. It was below 0 degree, no a/c or radiator. I asked STAFF using a tiny heater. But I could use it for only 1HOUR! It was so COLD!! When I told the situation, STAFF said "This is HOSTEL not hotel. My DOG's house is outside." Hey, Am I a DOG? Did I stay here for free? 9e! Every hostel is not like this. I don't expect high quality, but Should I get training for sleeping in 0 degrees? So I called the boss. He apologized and gave the heater. But It was useless.


This is such a lovely hostel and I highly recommend it! The location is great--it is very safe and within walking distance of everything--and the hostel is very clean and brightly decorated, with a full kitchen and a comfortable common room. The best part of Milingona though is the staff, who are exceptionally friendly and helpful. Stay here when you go to Tirana!


Loved this place and the great atmosphere created around the Hostel. With an amazing staff that is helpful and super friendly..Man they know everything just ask them. The breakfast they offer its perfect energy and one of the best breakfast I've had so far in my long trip. The hostel crew offers a free walking tour too and it just makes everything great. I love my stay there, I loved the people working there and the comfy big rooms they offer for very small price. Great Value for money. GREAT

I had a really good time at Milingona Hostel! First there is that beautiful created outside area and balkony, which gives good opportunity to socialize, having beers, games and music. The neighbourhood is much more interesting than the very center of Tirana, you can easily walk to the nearby second-hand-market and also to the fruits-and-vegtables market. Still, walking to the center is no problem. Best thing: Amazing Byrek just around the corner, made by two lovely women. Good vibes all around!

I didn't like my stay there at all. First of all you need to be a hippie or on some kind of amazing trip to get an attention of hosts there. I asked if one of the guys could help me with booking a tour and I was completely ignored! My private room was so private that there were other people things and passports lying around. I asked for a glass and knife, was sent to the "kitchen"- couldn't even find a knife there... Location is not good either. After one night I moved to better place.

Dear Malgorzata, we are very sorry for this experience you had, and we are sorry we didn't get this feedback when you were staying with us as it seemed that you were having a great time in the terrace with the our staff. We could have improved if you would have let us know during your stay. We hope to have you an other time to make your stay unforgettable.


On the opposite side of the square from most bus stops so expect a far walk or to pay a little more for a taxi. There were 5 week old puppies when I was there which was FANTASTIC! People were able to walk through our room to get to theirs and there were no lockers. I didn't like that aspect at all. Staff was nice. Breakfast is included. My bad for the price.

The best hostel experience I have had, largely due to the staff. They were so good and helpful with everything and just a lot of fun to be around. Easy walk into the centre and to bus stops, bars etc. Great to finish off the nights with some Raki with Yuri!
