    One of the few hostels were I would consider staying longer due to excellent attention by staff. Great activities as well, wine event with group was very fun. Make sure to spend a lot of time at the castle area, it’s a big area to wander around.

    We spent a week in Albania and Maya hostel was the best hostel we stayed at throughout our time. The hostel itself is beautiful with a lovely courtyard and social area. The rooms were great and there are plenty of games and spaces to play them. The breakfast was the best we've had at a hostel and the coffee machine pumps out amazing espressos! Thanks for the backgammon lessons and for the stay in your fantastic hostel.

    This is a great place to chill and meet people. The outdoor common area is really great. The free breakfast was pretty nice as well. Although I had checked out, the owner was really nice enough to let me hang around and also organize a wine tour. And since I couldn’t get the last bus, his brother was kind enough to drop me to Tirana airport, really great hospitality!

    We had a great time in Maya, one of the best. Edmir is a very kind and welcoming host who joined our team during our stay and showed us around and took us to the best restaurant in Albania (Lili's House). Lots of laughter and joy.

    I strongly recommend this place. The histel has a great terrasse where you will want to chill in the sun, socialize and spend your evenings. The dorms are good, you have a lamp, a socket and a curtain for each bed. You can cook in the general kitchen and breakfast is included. The staff made me feel welcome as soon as I entered, thank you again guys!

    Great location and stay. I really enjoyed the ensuite bathrooms and the curtains on the bed. Breakfast was good as well. It was pretty empty when I stayed so not too much of a social atmosphere, but I was looking for a quieter place so I didn’t mind.
