Amazing atmosphere! They have a large backyard with all kinds of hide outs, a bar and a chef who cooks fresh dinner. Can't go wrong to stay here.

Central, lose to everything..very relaxed atmosphere

I stayed at backpackers 2 nights. I liked the atmosphere, great courtyard out back to have a break also for eating breakfast (basic bread and coffee/tea) or a drink at night! The dorms were clean with many showers/toilets so never a wait, location was also good. As a negative I tried to join a daytrip and due to a misinformation from staff I wasn't able to, as not all the employees were as interested in helping the guests.

This hostel was special with quite a few pets, including dog, turtle, and goldfish in a pond. There was a bar in the garden too. Conveniently located in city centre yet in a side street, so away from the noise of main road. Staff were friendly and helpful. Toilet was clean. Only wifi was a bit weak in dorm room. Overall I had a good stay here.

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.

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.

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.
