Property Description

If Heaven were a hostel, Saranda’s Hairy Lemon Hostel would be it!

We're a small, cosy hostel, perfect for single travelers, couples, and groups to mix and mingle with our friends from around the globe.

Our accommodation is set in a modern apartment building with a view to kill :) Tastefully stylish throughout, with a chill-out area to meet everyone and hear tales of... well, near truths.

Relax on our easy breezy 8th floor balcony to meet fellow travelers and our lovely staff members over a legendary sunset with a cold beer in hand - enjoy the stunning views across the sea to the beautiful Greek island of Corfu, the perfect place to unwind and round off a splendid day of adventure.

We have the comfiest hand-crafted beds, so good only the smell of freshly brewed coffee, tea, pancakes, and home-made marmalade could tempt you from your cocoon!

Awaiting you is a fully equipped self-catering kitchen, where you can show off your gastronomical delights! And if you’re not in the mood to cook, no worries – our staff can readily recommend local eateries and top-notch neighborhood restaurants, and are also known to throw the most delectable family dinners and beach barbecues in town.

Should you need to cool off, we're just 20 meters from the sea with free access to beach bars, lounge chairs, umbrellas, free stand up paddle board and canoe, and more. Head down to the beach and show off the beach bods you've been working so hard on throughout your travels :-)

If you’re looking for a local adventure, Saranda is conveniently located a short (20 minute) bus ride away from the famous archaeological ruins of Butrint, and the stunning turquoise waters and white sand beaches of Ksamil. Looking for another way to escape the heat? Try Syri i Kalter, also known as the “Blue Eye,” a fresh water spring famous for crystal clear, ice cold waters with a stunning deep blue center and turquoise edges resembling the iris of an eye – a lovely day trip from Saranda or quick stop on your way to Gjirokaster. Perhaps looking to rent a car or motor scooter along the way? We’ve got the connections for you!

    Stayed for about 8 nights, both owners Andreas and Ricardo were amazing - super welcoming and respectful. The hostel itself feels homely and the balcony is a lifesaver during summer as being on the 8th floor provides a needed breeze. Beds are comfortable - sheet and pillow included. Also included is a locker and a set of keys. Lots of information regarding buses and places to go if you ask! the beach is on the doorstep and you get sun beds included with the affiliated bar cocktail dreams!

    Very nice host and great location, but the bedrooms were cramped. Six beds to a tiny room and just two bathrooms for the entire apartment. Worth the price if you don’t plan to stay in the hostel much.

    Staff was very friendly but unfortunately the Hostel was very warn down. The "mattresses" left a massive imprint of my body. Other then the view of sunset it wasn't great. Would not stay again if I came back to Saranda.

    The rooms are incredibly small for 6 people, the mattresses are pure foam. And therefore get incredibly hot, while also being uncomfortable. The pillows, are so old and lumpy. There is one fan for the room, which isn’t enough. The balcony outside my room was used for storage of cleaning equipment so wasn’t able to be used. The breakfast that’s listed as included, was just a borek and chocolate crossiant. Average coffee and no milk to offer some days
