    Excellent hostel. Stavri welcomed us with open arms, and gave us more than enough info to enjoy our stay in Tirana. Very friendly and helpful staff, with clean and comfortable beds. And the breakfast spread is pretty great too. You really feel like you're at someone's house, it's a great spot.

    Stayed here for one night in a private room. It's a small hostel but that means that it's easy to meet and hang out with the other people staying there. Staff were really friendly, great value for money, and good location about 15-minute walk away from the main square. It's not signposted in front (it's villa number IV) in a super residential area so it felt really safe. The bed was super comfy and the air conditioning was amazing! I'd definitely stay here again.

    The rooms were comfortable and clean, The staff were so friendly and helpful. There is a good kitchen to use and a small area inside and outside for you to eat/socialise. Great location, about 10 minutes walk to the city centre, lockers under the bed. Supermarket and bakeries down the street.

    Very nice and clean hostel. The owner was very knowledgable about Tirana and what to do, see and eat. There was no atmosphere, but that is okay as we wanted a relaxed environment. If you want just a chilled out time in Tirana this is a great hostel which is really affordable for a private room with AC.

    Very kind staff, with a decent location. The private room was a little strange, almost like being in a heated garage, but not really much of a problem. Pretty good for its price.

    The staff was kind and helpful. I was looking for somewhat of a quieter stay and found a relaxing environment here. Note that the hostel is VERY hard to find, as it is an unmarked door with no signs. While the dorm was spacious and clean, it was extremely hot. there was an AC in the room, but we were told that AC access was only for private rooms. We had a small fan but given the layout it was hard to share and only one bunk could use it. Breakfast was also only for private bookings.

    Hostel has no sign outside. It’s behind a large gate which you need to ring a bell to enter. If it wasn’t for a local man approaching us to ask if we wanted the hostel, we wouldn’t have found it. However, once inside, the staff were extremely welcoming and the facilities are great. While we had air conditioning the room, we were told it wasn’t working. We had a private room, so were able to leave the windows open for ventilation so the room was cool enough over night. Highly recommend the hostel

    The owners had left the hostel with volunteers while they went on vacation and it showed. Our room wasn't clean (hair on the ground) and neither was the common kitchen, but the shared bathroom was okay. The kitchen was also not very well stocked which made cooking difficult. Location wasn't bad.
