Property Description

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

We're a small, cosy hostel, perfect for single travellers, 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 travellers 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 marmalades 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 neighbourhood restaurants, and are also known to throw the most delectable family dinners and beach barbeques in town.

Should you need to cool off, we're just 20 metres from the sea with easy access to beach bars, lounge chairs, umbrellas, paddle boats, 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!

We offer the 'BEST VALUE' in Saranda and were Hostel World’s ‘BEST HOSTEL’ in all of Albania in 2016, so what are you waiting for? Get yourself booked in now as unavailability may disappoint! We look forward to seeing you very soon 😊

    Though I was only able to stay for one night I had a fantastic time at the Hairy Lemon! The staff were so friendly and welcoming, we ended up playing cards and talking with each other and the other guests for hours. The view from the balcony (and the hammock!) are amazing as well. The best part may have been the pancakes in the morning though (be sure to have some of the fig jam!). I highly recommend anyone looking for a truly welcoming, hospitable place to stay to visit the Hairy Lemon!

    This is a great hostel with great hosts, Ricardo and Andrea were very friendly and funny. The all-you-can eat pancakes were spot on. This is a small hostel with a great atmosphere for meeting new people, if you're looking for a hostel to stay in Sarande look no further.
