    Stayed with my friends there for a couple days and it was really amazing. We felt like at home, the owner and his mother are so hospitable. If we’ll be in Sarandë, definitely go to Hakuna Matata 😊🐒✌️

    Loved my short and sharp stay at this epic hostel!! Bledi and his beautiful mother were soo welcoming and made sure I was 100% satisfied! The food cooked for me was an amazing traditional dish. I did the tour with Bledi and Wendy (the dog!!) and had such a crazy packed day! My spontaneous trip to Albania was awesome because of my stay at Hakuna Matata!

    It was very lovely at Hakuna Matata! We made friends with the owners mother, a lady who was always there. We communicated with our hands and feet, with smiles and words in greek, russian, albanian and english. We always found a way to tell each other what we wanted to say. She provided us with blankets, when we were cold. She told us about the guests who always left their dirty dishes everywhere, cooked for us and gave us a very welcoming feeling when we came back after a few days in greece.

    Hakuna Matata Hostel is a fantastic place with a great view of the city and the host! The staff are the most friendly I have come across my travels , very warm, smiley and helpful people that make you feel at home and so comfortable!

    The hosts are really nice, they involve you in tneir family dinners and movie nights. Also inviting guests on day trips. The hostel was very quiet when I was there but there’s lots to see and do in town. It’s not as far out of town as some reviews suggest. I recommend staying here.

    Great view of Sarande and lots of nice outdoor spaces, including movie projector and bar. Hostel offers free access to a beach club (free beach chairs/umbrellas), great perk! Rooms were quite hot for sleeping, no A/C. Also quite a steep walk up from the bus station. All in all, a nice place to stay and relax!

    The hostel is high up on the hill and away from the more touristy parts of town, but it's a trek to get there. It's big but the atmosphere was pretty dead when we went, despite the number of people in the hostel. The view from the private rooms is really good. Big kitchen and lots of places to sit around.

    Not a bad hostel. Staff are friendly and there's something for breakfast. Decent communal areas and a balcony to chill on. Location though is a little out of the way up a big hill from the town centre, so be prepared for a hike. Although the rooms were advertised to have AC, none of them on the ground floor where I stayed did. Not sure about the upper floors though. Basic facilities too. Cash only payment at the hostel, but you can pay on card at a sister hotel on the beach a ~2km walk away.

    The property was in a very run-down area of town that I would have felt uncomfortable commuting too as a solo female traveler. Our bathrooms were falling apart and the small fan was inadequate for cooling the room in the hot summer temperatures. The staff did not have much knowledge of the local transport, sights, and places to eat and drink. The layout of the hostel meant there wasn't much of an opportunity for socializing.
