    Stayed there a week ago for two nights and was one the best hostels we stayed in Albania. Lovely atmosphere with incredibly welcoming staff. Really Nice rooms and a great communal area with fantastic views over Gjirokastra. Staff at the hostel went above and beyond to help us out with suggestions and were some of the friendliest people we met in Albania. Rooms were immaculate as were facilities. wish we’d spent longer there! Strongerly recommend anyone passing through Gjirokastra to stay there!

    The hostel is in a great location, very close to the bazar. A lovely family run it - very friendly and welcoming. I loved sitting on the terrace looking out at the mountains and castle. I had a double room - very comfortable and clean. Delicious breakfast is available. Would happily stay again 😊.

    Me and my girlfriend really liked the look of this Hostel, was super clean! Location was so close to many of the popular locations so we could walk to them all in a day with no hassle. Their menu was great too! They made things with dietary requirements so my girlfriend wouldn't get sick. Would definitely recommend and will stay again!
