    I planned to spend a night, ended up staying 4! It’s just a perfect example of how a good hostel should be! Place is clean, safe, and neat. They are so friendly, kind, and welcoming. Breakfast is pretty nice and they never got annoyed about me asking them to warm my milk haha! I enjoyed the company and gatherings every night. You can’t feel lonely in this place! And you will be treated like a family, not just a guest. Next time will probably spend a week. 100/100

    Very central location in Himare and pretty easy to find. Chill atmosphere during the day and lively social at night. The hostel is run ed by a competent and cheerful young lady who can guide you to all the best places both of Himare and the south of Albania. The dorms and the common areas are clean and very well kept. Another strong point is the AWSOME breakfasts: diverse nutritious and well balanced with options for vegans. Highly recommended for every type of travelers.

    What a fantastic place, the hosts and volunteers are some of the nicest people we have met in Albania and really go out of there way to make sure you have everything you need. The rooms have good air conditioning and are super tidy and clean, the communal spaces are also super clean and tidy. The hostel has parking outside and is a 1.5 min walk from the beach. The breakfast changes every day and is also very nice. The atmosphere is amazing and it’s super easy to meet people.

    Beautiful place, was quite quiet but it'd a bit out of season at the moment and still met lovely people and the volunteers were great. Super relaxed place right by the beach with A/C and loads of great restaurants on the doorstep and good common areas. 100% recommend this place for anyone, breakfasts are also free and delicious and filling.

    Nice hostel with a good outdoor space - the owner and her daughter are wonderful and there is a fantastic breakfast. Only criticism is that one of the volunteers was very rude to me when I said I didn’t feel comfortable hitchhiking as a solo female traveller

    Really nice little hostel in a great location, right by the beach. The owner was lovely and served a delicious breakfast that was great value for money. All the other staff were very friendly too. Most of the lockers weren't working though, so I had to have a locker in another room.

    the location of this hostel is perfection—and the owner is INCREDIBLE. I slept really well here. The breakfast as well was delicious. But the clientele is a bit too laid back (boring) for my taste—I was able to find a group to do something with but it wasn’t easy. Even finding people to go out with was tricky. The showers are hot but there’s a weird connection with the sink, and the kitchen is like microscopic.

    Wasn’t keen initially but ended up staying 3 nights and enjoyed my stay. Good mix of people, ages and socialising. Not too quiet or too party. Slept well every night in 6 bed dorm. The young owner and her mother do great job keeping clean and providing a decent breakfast every morning. Location couldn’t be more central. Bit of a stoner/hippie clique with the volunteers that didn’t feel very welcoming/professional at times. However I would return.
