    Fantastic location, staff were great. Lack of aircon in the rooms but other than that everything was great. Absolutely loved the openness of the outdoor area and common area.

    Nice hostel with excellent atmosphere for the two nights I was there! A mix of good guests with friendly and helpful volunteers all chilling in the front garden/terrace area made it a great place to be. The bathrooms and lack of lockers were the only downsides.

    Good location. Not many people around as end of the season otherwise a good stay. A lot of mosquitoes around so left with a lot of bites unsure if from in the hostel or not but definitely saw a lot.

    The location of the hostel is ideal, and there is a large kitchen and common spaces. HOWEVER the lack of air conditioning is a serious problem in the summer, the rooms get very hot and humid all night and make sleeping very uncomfortable. The lockers are also not secure and difficult to access. For the low price it was alright

    This hostel has a great social space, its big and open but no one seemed to be interacting with each other. The staff were all nice and helpful. The rooms only have fans so it was extremely hot to sleep and there was no security for your belongings, lockers or rooms with keys would put a travellers mind at ease while out exploring. The main beach is ages away if you walk there and its also not worth the trip but there are plenty of nice spots to sit and relax if you walk the opposite way.

    When I first arrived I was greeted very poorly. I understand that it’s volunteers, but when the only thing you show me of the hostel is my room and walk away, not the best. I’m not sure what the volunteers are taught but we never received a map, the staff had trouble recommending restaurants and beaches. The court yard is very nice. The maid keep everything clean. Breakfast is good! There was several stories of bed bugs sadly including a instance while I was there. Durrës hostel was not the best
