    My only regret is that I could not stay here longer. Beautiful, historic house in the Old City with easy access to all the significant sights. Such lovely staff, Alex was very welcoming. Invited myself and another guest to join him, and 2 very knowledgeable local guides for a sunset walk to a pretty lake nearby. The facilities, atmosphere, breakfast, service are all fantastic. Look forward to returning to Gjirokaster and Babameto.

    It was an amazing stay at a castle, museum, old residential house, monument. Clean, luxurious, great taste and lovely little breakfast. One of the best experiences in my hostel life. Perfect surroundings, short walk to the castle. Absolutely worth each penny. Chris was a phenomenal host.

    Babameto Hostel was definitely the most beautiful hostel we stayed in in Albania! Kristian, our host, was lovely and very attentive. He even gave us a tour of the hostel which is an old, well-restaurated osmanic building in the centre of old-town Gjirokastra. The rooms are clean and comfortable, the garden is lovely and shady (great when it‘s hot outside). Definitely would recommend Babameto when staying in Gjirokastra!

    It's a beautifully restored historical house close to the Gjirokaster Castle. The rooms are big and the shared bathrooms are modern and clean. Breakfast is excellent. The staff is friendly and helpful. It would have been 100% if there were lockers in the dorms.
