Beni's Place is great new hostel. It's a bit small, but perfect for relaxing and getting to know the other guests. The three staff were very friendly and helpful, and always made sure everyone had everything they needed. Plus the free breakfast they cook for everyone is amazing!! Definitely the best breakfast I have ever had at a hostel. I would highly recommend Beni's Place if you are visiting Saranda!
As a solo traveler I thought the hostel was too big and impersonal, probably fine for groups. While it's nice that there is a bar and cafe, the food is way overpriced (chef was very late day I was there and food was not good) and they don't allow any outside food or alcohol inside the hostel. They could also use a common area outside of the bar area where you can just relax and watch tv, read, or talk to people without having to talk over the music.
Best hostel I've stayed at! Very friendly and helpful staff and Mamma's dinners are amazing.
Wish there were lockers in the rooms and free, instead of only in the basement. It would have been nice if there was wifi in the rooms as well, but not really a huge issue since there was plenty of seating downstairs.
