Great bar area which is also one of the common areas. I was in a 18 bed dorm and there was still plenty of space and I didn't feel super cramped. There could be more showers for the amount of beds there are and the showers could be a little cleaner. Staff is amazing. The bar prices are pretty good. The beds are actually super comfortable.
Great location. That is about all this hostel has going for it. The power went out in the room for hours leaving no fan, or AC or hot water. The floors were super dusty. Anyone could walk in or out of the rooms. I left this hostel and checked in to a bungalow a few doors down.
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.
Words do not do justice for this hostel! It is like you are staying in an apartment with a couple of roommates and feels incredibly comfortable. Tomi is by far the best hostel host I have ever encountered and will walk you to the bus station or ferry port or a great restaurant just to make sure you are taken care of. I booked 2 days and stayed for 6. He hosted a bbq on the beach which was amazing and even did my laundry! Absolutely amazing hostel and a must stay at place in Saranda!
The bunk beds at this hostel look like they should be a triple but they are only a double so there is PLENTY of space which is great. The outdoor garden and bar area is lovely and relaxing. The breakfast has hard boiled eggs which is a plus. No lockers or safes in the room. There is a cute dog always running around the hostel as well. The staff is knowledgeable with the bus schedules and things to do in the area and can help tell a taxi driver where you need to go.
Amazing amazing location! Literally in the middle of old town. The staff is super enthusiastic and very helpful. The tours are easy to arrange and the transfers are very beneficial. The beds are a little squeaky but what are you gonna do? There is an option for a home cooked meal with more food than you could ever eat! Great hostel!
Amazing amazing hostel. It felt like I was staying in an apartment. I was picked up and dropped off at the bus station which was absolutely amazing. Small store directly next door for groceries and about a 4 minute walk to the heart of old town. Great tours also provided through the hostel. A+++ in my book!
Great hostel. Great location and great staff. The only issue I had was my room was right off the reception and incredibly loud very early in the morning. Other than that, great stay!
The hostel is in an AMAZING location. There is a buzzer/key card to get in which is very safe. Lockers under the bed that are huge. The only problem is the bunk beds do not have railings on the top bunk and are very squeaky. Other than that, the staff is great and there is a great outdoor terrace and great kitchen area. Breakfast is included as well.
Let me start by saying that I booked two nights and ended up staying for 5. The hostel is in an amazing location. Home cooked breakfast every morning and use of the kitchen all day. The beds are incredibly comfortable and the AC is great. The staff is very nice and someone is always around to ask questions. They are super laid back and the lockers are HUGE!
The staff here is incredibly helpful. The only thing is my room was the room to the terrace and people walked in and out of it all day and the door was really squeaky. Other than that, great location and the owners are very nice.
I was suggested to stay here by a friend. The beds are comfortable, the AC rocks and the free breakfast is what is to be expected of a free breakfast. However, what I did not realize is that families and children and what not were allowed. There were screaming children in the common area and even my headphones didn't block them out. That in itself, ruined the experience for me. However, had I read about the hostel before booking, I wouldn't have booked based on that. Otherwise, great place.
This is exactly what it is advertised to be. A party place. However, we were in a tent and it was dusty and hot and absolutely loud as hell. The bathrooms were disgusting to the point that bins would be overflowing with toilet paper and flies were everywhere. The pool was great and the food offered was pretty good and cheap. There is a free shuttle from the port which is nice. Also, if you don't want to party, the place is pretty dead after about 11pm so you can day party and then chill out.
I had friends staying at another hostel and they were able to walk in and out as they pleased to our hostel. The pool is nice but incredibly small. There is a vending machine in the kitchen with snacks and beer and cider but it closes pretty early. The rooms are nice but very small (I was in a 6 person) and there is nowhere to put your luggage. There are lockers to lock up valuables. The shower always got the floor soaking wet which was sort of gross. Not a bad place, just not great.
This is a party hostel. However, after 9:00pm the hostel is DEAD because they are located above apartments and must observe quiet hours. If you are looking for an option to party or stay in, this is the place to be. I was sick basically the entire time I was here and I was able to sleep and rest and get better. The kitchen facilities are great and the dorms are okay. There is AC which is key in the heat. The showers are a little dirty but they are huge. Overall, good place to stay.
This hostel is absolutely amazing! The rooms are fantastic with great little kitchenettes so you can cook absolutely anything. The staff is wonderful and very friendly. The pool has a great view of the sea and has lawn chairs to lay out on. Some of the beds ARE NOT bunk beds which is incredible. There is a shuttle to take you to/from Old Town that runs until 3:30am. I would stay here again any time!
The staff at this place is absolutely amazing! The location is unbeatable just outside the walls of Old Town. I booked a 6 person and was put in a 5 person which is always a nice upgrade. Towels are provided and they will even switch them out if you are there for a few days. A little pricey but worth it to save in transportation costs to and from the city.
This hostel is a little bit out of town but very easy to get to. The beach at the hostel is absolutely amazing. There is a full kitchen and common room with almost anything you could possibly need. There is a store a few minutes away and the staff is very very helpful. Great place to stay with a group of friends!
The hostel was incredibly close to the beach and provided beach towels as well as regular towels. As a backpacker, towels are one thing that change everything for me! The hostel has quiet hours which is nice, but you aren't even able to talk in your room without being shushed. Other than that, everything was absolutely awesome!
The bunk beds did not have a railing for the top bunk and there was only one ladder for all 4 sets. They were basically renovating when we were there and we were on lockout from about 10am-5pm. The staff was friendly and the room was cheap, so I guess you get exactly what you pay for. Nice thing though is a great kitchen and two computers if needed.
The hostel is walking distance to some amazing cafes and most importantly, the Eiffel Tower. The metro stop is just a few blocks away. The rooms are quite small but very nice and the beds are comfortable. The shower is actually pretty great. Also, beers are pretty cheap and the morning breakfast is included. A great place to stay.
The staff is absolutely fantastic. It is a little annoying that check in is also the bar and sometimes they were a little under staffed. The rooms are large and you can rent a locker if you want. Free breakfast and pasta dinner everyday.
The staff was very friendly and helpful. The dorms were clean and well laid out. The lockers were a little loud because they are metal but it is nice to have a locker provided. There is a great terrace to sit on which is great when the weather is nice. You get a welcome drink for 1 Euro during the stay as well. I was there when a very large group was there and found that people were not very social in the common area. Walking distance to the city center and steps away from a train stop!
The staff was incredible and very friendly. The hostel environment is more like a hotel so it is not very social. The room set up is fantastic and feels very private. The bears are across the street which makes it easy to visit them and the hotel is right off a train stop.
The guys who ran this hostel were absolutely amazing and made our stay very enjoyable. Thursday night was free Pisco Sour night and we had a ton of fun! We had a private room with two beds and a private bathroom which was fantastic. There was a computer and free wifi and everything was absolutely wonderful.
