    I would recommend this hostel 100% !!! Bertie goes above and beyond to make everyone feel at home, and the coziness of the hostel really helps with that. His English is impeccable and his father is the sweetest Albanian guy, always with a smile. The room had heating with comfortable beds and thick blankets (for Albania's cold winter nights!). The location is right at the heart of Berat, in old town close to the castle, shops, grocery stores, everything!

    Very nice hostel with great staff. The owner shows you the castel where he grew up. His mother is the most friendly Albania that I met. She is so nice and cute. I will keep a very nice memory of my travel in Berat. With the tour, you can meet easily New people. We had a dinner with all poeple in the hostel (still a small hostel). Thanks again for everything !!

    Small hostel run by a nice and welcoming family is in typical old Berat's house. Family and warm atmosphere give you a feeling like beeing at home where mum prepares breakfast for each child with special care. Every moning I received coffee even befor breakfast. Berti is a nice person, helping you anyway he can. He gives all information about the town, the castle, he even gives a tour around the castle. When I was leaving Berat, he accompanied me to the bus station. Totalky recommend it!
