    Amazing stay here. Berty was an incredible host and was more than willing to show us the local sites. I’m sorry we didn’t get to say goodbye, as we left in a hurry. But you should definitely stay in this hostel if traveling through Berat.

    Old Ottoman house right in the middle of the Old Town. Upper dorm has fabulous views at anytime. Terrace to watch people below, river, opposite quarter of Old Gorica. Staffed by nicest family imaginable. Berti the young manager will help you in any respect, has relaxed personality, nice to talk to. His father is retired gentleman and currently a poet but speaks mainly French no English. Mother is very lovely person as well. Breakfast fresh local food. Quiet place, no TV in communal lounge :-)

    A nice little hostel in the middle of the UNESCO quarter and within a walking distance of the main sights. Really nice owner (his father is lovely too!) who gave us tips on the city etc, and the dorm was nice too. Facilities a bit old but full of character. Great and quiet stay.
