Usually not a fan of these huge hostels. This one is one of the bests in its category.
This hostel is a bit far from the center. The staff has the bad habit to listen to very loud music in the middle of the night and the reception desk is often empty. Bathrooms and kitchen lack some useful items like curtains, hooks (bathroom) and electric boiler (kitchen).
Do not expect much of an atmosphere but the location of the hostel is perfect and it is clean. There could be more bathrooms.
This hostel has a very good atmosphere, I recommend it if you want to avoid the traditional 'party hostels'.
Overall good hostel but the common showers need regular cleaning, during my stay (2 nights), they have not been cleaned once (toilets have been cleaned but not the showers).
good hostel in general, great staff but a bit far from city center and lacks atmosphere.
Good hostel and the owners are sympathetic lads.
Very good place to stay in Berat. Stunning views of the castle and old city, agreable garden, good breakfast and very sympathic owner.
Very good hostel in the center of Tirana. Their courtyard is the perfect location to have a few beers in the evening. Note that their address has changed, use the one from hostel world as it might be outdated in guidebooks and on old flyers.
A very good aspect of this hostel: the staff knows how to keep their 'pub crawlers' quiet when they return drunk at 5 am. However toilets and showers could be cleaned more often, esp. Early in the morning.
Many hostels abusively claim to be "your home away from home". This hostel diserves the title. Ian and Lucka have arranged a nice and welcoming cocoon and leaving the place will be the hardest you'll have to do during your stay. Olomouc is worth a visit and this hostel is an additional asset for the town.
During my stay 4 lockers have been broken into and many personal items stolen. The reaction of the staff was very frustrating,they did not care and just kept on repeating that there lockers were safe. The staff was also poorly trained and it was not possible to get some basic information. Wifi signal is very weak and internet slow, staff also did not react when guests from the hostel were very noisy just outside of the hostel (during 2 hours at 4 am). Good location and clean, only positive point
Good hostel, brand new. The staff really does its best to provide good atmosphere. Only downside: the common room is in the basement and lacks natural light, but still agreable.
one of the dorms has no window, with 8 people inside the air gets rare.
super clean, toilets and showers get cleaned all the time, never seen such a cleanliness elsewhere. a bit loud at night.
bathrooms are dirty, the skin diseases I caught there attest it. the staff of volunteers is badly trained, they know virtually nothing about the city and cannot give any advices, they also mess up with beds and when I came back at night someone was sleeping in it. the manager is able to answer questions, but when he is not around... ask your questions to google, you'll have more chance to get a reply.
Coffee at over 5 Eur in a hostel should have its place in Guiness Book of Records.
nice roof terrace, friendly staff.
