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.

    Had an awesome time at Buffalo! Booked for 2 nights and ended up staying for 4, and will certainly be back for more in the future! Facilities and breakfast are decent but the overall vibe and people are what makes it stand out. Thanks again for the stay and memories of Pristina xx

    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.

    An innocuous encounter with D. led me to better arrange my trek through the Balkans and Eastern Europe. This places has a very modest breakfast (included), the option to wash your gear and hang dry it overnight/ during your stay and free walnuts, pears and grapes. Seriously. Free. The hostel is more informal than expectations might suggest and it lends to an overall familiar, almost homely, sense of community. I wish you all the unassuming pleasure of staying here. Ask for the second blanket!

    I missed two flights accidentally on purpose because I loved this hostel so much! It feels like a home from home

    The bathrooms were clean and so was everything else. The day trip didn’t happen because of low attendance despite the conversation I had the day before when it sounded like splitting the fuel cost was the roadblock and I agreed to pay for the entire cost of fuel so we could still go. That was extremely disappointing.

    The Australian girlfriend of the nice manager gave me a mean look at my arrival as I told her I was Kurdish originaly but having French nationality. First I tried to be optimistic and not let my personal travel experience in Australia affects my judgement as there are good and bad people everywhere but later she said her mom was racist! I stayed only 1 night because of her. I liked the old style with laid back atmosphere. My experience was unique as there was only one more guest at the hostel.

    I arrived at property and although it was a weekend, I was the only guest there. There were several volunteers but they were just sitting around and the place was a mess. They also didn't know about things to do or museums I should see. Breakfast was stale bread with nothing to put on it. I paid to have my clothes washed but I think no soap was used as they smelled like they were washed with dirty water. I wanted to bond w owner over shared Texas roots but she was out of country at the time.
