Property Description

Centrally located,50 meters from Ferry Corfu,Free breakfast,Free Wi -Fi,Beach BBQ,promenade with bars,restaurants, buses to Butrinti ruinsand Ksamili beaches -all in our door step!

Welcome to Saranda, one of Albania's most beautiful destinations. Saranda Backpackers has been in operation for over four years and is run by a local named Tomi, who is fluent in English, Italian, Greek, and Albanian. It is located on the second floor of a secure contemporary apartment building, located only 20 meters from Saranda's main beach. All of the rooms have big balconies overlooking the picturesque Ionian Sea.

After a day out on the town, Saranda Backpackers Hostel offers many amenities that will help you to relax. Some of the hostel's benefits include hot showers, free internet, washing machine, and balconies with stunning views of the bay. You will have access to a full kitchen, where you can make your own lunch/dinner. The hostel is located right around the corner from the farmer's market and the town's super big air conditioned supermarket (Alfa). Don't worry about breakfast, it's included!

Mornings begin with a continental breakfast with fresh tasty bread, homemade jam, organic coffee or tea, fresh boiled eggs, tasty tomatoes and watermelons from the farmers market. Or will you try out the typical Albanian breakfast with byrek? Tell us!

We are at your disposal 24/7 and can give you an insider's view of Saranda and the history of Tomi's homeland. We can recommend cheap traditional restaurants as well as arrange tours, help navigate your next destination, and point out all of the nearby hot spots including: The Blue Eye, The Castle of Lekursi, the antic excavation of Butrint or the amazing beaches of Ksamil or Paskyra Beach south to Saranda!

Walk around the corner and catch the city bus, it leaves every hour (from 7am to 6pm) and the bus stop is only 50 meters from the hostel.
Visit Butrint and stop in Ksamil on the way back and take a swim or paddle boat ride to the islands.

Located just 50 meters from the port (ferry service to/from Corfu) and a quick walk from the central bus station, Saranda Backpackers Hostel is not only close to all the major transportation hubs, it's also a short walk to the promenade which is lined with bars, discos, and restaurants (be sure to try the famous mussels). As you stroll along the promenade, stop to have a coffee or a shot of raki, enjoy the sea view and live in the moment as the locals do. Last but not least, the main beach is in front of the hostel. Grab some homemade byrek (spinach pie) or a tasty treat from the corner bakery on your way. Soak up the sun, rent a paddle boat, or float the day away in the clear refreshing sea.
We are here open for all your questions and try to help you with all your travel needs - day trips around Saranda and traveling around Albania too!

You want to rent a bike or a car, just ask us!
