Property Description

Buffalo Backpackers is located in the city center: the heart of Pristina. Everything the city has to offer is a quick walk away. Buffalo’s unique charm comes from a local Albanian and a Texan who have combined their experiences and passions to create a hostel that you can call your home away from home. We love Kosovo, and we want you to love it too!

Our hostel is surrounded by a large garden that can be your oasis in Pristina – with a back garden bar, fire pit, garden games, hammocks, fruit trees, and more! Buffalo Backpackers garden is the perfect place to pass time with new friends! We’re committed to providing a spacious and friendly environment to meet all of your travel needs.

Just inside the house we have a common room and full kitchen stocked with cooking essentials. We have comfy sofas, games, a book swap, a clothing swap and an exhibition room where you can learn about Kosovo’s history.

Buffalo Backpackers offers day trips in our VW hostel van! You can chose from a variety of seven different adventures around Kosovo. Our trips range from mountain and waterfall tours, to historical sites and local wine and raki tastings.

Our guests receive FREE large storage lockers, breakfast, coffee and tea 24/7, city maps and Wi-Fi —not to mention a wealth of cultural and traveler information from our great staff. Whether you’re just passing through or need a home base to explore Pristina and the rest of Kosovo, we’re here to make your trip a great one.

    This was my first time at Buffalo Backpackers, and I can't wait to come back! The facilities were clean, the people were great, and the location was stellar. We immediately felt welcomed and a part of the family, and the system that they have to keep everything in order/organized is super!

    Buffalo is awesome! The volunteers there clearly care for the place even if they are there only for a week or two. The owner is amazing and I had no problems with anything during my stay. Location is super convenient and a 4 minute walk from the city center. Great atmosphere and great people staying there (mostly Backpackers and travelers from all over the world). I would 110% stay there again!

    Great place with a really friendly staff. Chelsea throws a hell of a 4th of July party. Not to be missed. The only issue was the mosquitoes at night, so just bring some bug spray, and you'll be OK. Other than that, a great place to stay in Pristina with easy access to downtown and the bus station.

    Beautiful place, quiet but central location, super friendly staff and the best honey raki in the Balkans! Toilets could be slightly better position-wise, plus the place needs a microwave, but I’m not complaining! Thank you Chelsea for an amazing stay!

    All staff super lovely and helpful! Towel inc and appreciated. Nice big open windows in bedrooms. Well equipped kitchen. Friendly backpacker feel, lots of communal spaces. Travelling solo I mainly chose this hostel/Pristhina for the van day tours advertised online- disappointed to find they do not operate. Bathrooms have issues. I dropped off my washing but 2 days later when leaving to pick up the staff had forgotten to do it which wasn’t ideal.. great place to stay on the whole!

    Unfortunately, I need to write this bad review: One of the dirtiest and worst kept hostels I've slept in, and I have been in many! I chose this hostel due to the great reviews, but now I see it's only because of the cool travelers in here. For the rest, the hostel is a mess: far from center, old falling mattresses, cramped, unkept rooms and toilets, dirty kitchen, disgusting fridge... I am not a hostel prince but this was too much. And the "volunteers"? Sitting down checkin' on their Tinder!
