Nice hostel in good location. Great garden for relaxing. Breakfast was nothing special but nice to have it included. Rooms were a good size with locker and individual reading lamps. Bathrooms are shared for guys and girls. Overall a good hostel. I would stay there again.


The hostel itself is fantastic, large, spread out, lots of places to chill, great outdoor area, beds have their own reading lamp, loved the boiled eggs at breakfast - only downside was the pillows were super uncomfortable and the sheets provided didn't fit the bed.

Dear Sarah,thank you for the helpful feedback. We need to know things like that so that we can improve everything and make the rooms as comfortable as possible for all our guests. Everything you said will be taken into consideration. Maybe we see you again in the future.


We had a wonderful stay at the hostel. We were not going to stay at a hostel in Tirana because our hostel experiences lately have not been that great, but we loved everything about this hostel. Friendly helpful staff, clean, and great facilities. Thank you!

Pros: Staff was helpful at times but cold in others. Breakfast was OK not great. Cons: difficult to find (Lonely Planet says one address and hostel is actually at another.) Luckily we found a local kid who was kind enough to show us around. Close to a bunch of tourist-y restaurants. Did the walking tour, which was recommended. It was just OK. Our guide wasn't the best. But our friends, who did another one, said they loved it. Just depends on the guide, I guess.

Dear Lily :) We have tried to make our hostel feel more like a home(even if it's large)and make our guests feel like part of the family. Well,some people choose not to get too close to that family. As for the difficulty in finding us,we've moved location 1 year and a half ago and we have updated everything on the internet,including Hostelworld info where you've made a reservation. But we can't change the info on the already printed Lonely Planet. You saw we are 10 min walk from the city centre.


Very good hostel


Great location from the main city, really helpful staff and SO many spaces to relax. Cool bar and outdoor area we will go back again.


really good atmosphere, the inner garden is just amasing for chill out. the staff is frendly


Well located in city centre. Large room in a spacious house- no cramped corners. Outside bar area. Clearly a popular backpacker haunt. Personable staff and backpacker volunteers.


The best hostel in Eastern Europe i've been to! Nice rooms, very good staff, and the bar in the backyard is awesome!


100% in each category. I mean really a hostel done right. The best value here is the atmosphere of the patio and bar out back. Really chill not all clubby. Just nice to meet people. Felt very safe. Hostel was accommodating. If u are staying in tirana, come here


What an amazing place. The staff are very helpful with recommendations. Highlight of our time in Tirana was going on a hike into the caves with the owner and hearing his plans for the area. The rooms are neat, clean and warm (winter). The bar area was really nice and would be a great place to hang out in summer. The location is great, being is very close to all the main sights. Excellent stay


The Albanian woman who works there is very intelligent and super friendly! One of my favorite hostels.


The hostel is nice, but their management quality still can improving. During the new year, they provide the breakfast very late (until 11:00, I saw the meal). And credit card cannot accept. Otherwise, everything is fine.


Great atmosphere, we watched a couple of films together, and the girl who works there was incredibly knowledgeable about tiranian bus logistics, without which I would've been screwed
