    We had a great time at Saranda backpackers. Tommi who is the owner is a really friendly guy. He take care of all the people who stays at his place. The location is perfect. Close to the food store, beaches, restaurants and all the other places you want to visit. Tommi fixed a barbecue at the beach for everyone. He also help you plan your future trip around Saranda and Albania. Best regards, Viktor and Jakob Ps. We are coming back!

    This is by far the best hostel in Saranda! Tomi is the greatest host I’ve ever met and goes out of his way to make sure people enjoy their stay. He makes breakfast every morning, walks you to bus stops, restaurants, bars, etc. He waited for me at the bus stop from when I was arriving from Tirana at 3 am to walk me to the hostel, and he does a mean beach BBQ! I highly recommend this hostel and I will definately come back.

    Great place to stay! Tomi made us a family dinner while we were there and we all ate together - such a nice atmosphere. When I had an issue a few days before my stay he let me stay at the hostel for a few hours before my next bus came. Also reinvests in his community - the yellow railings across the street from the hostel were his idea after he saw people having trouble with the stairs. 10/10 :)

    I spent a fantastic time in Saranda Backpackers. All in the hostel was according what I had heard about it but above all, the kindness of the mighty Tomy who has been running the hostel for several years. If you’re thinking to visit Saranda and you want to stay in a hostel, don’t think too much about the accommodation and go straight to Saranda Backpackers. The whole experience there worth it. All what I wrote on the wall of the hostel represents my feelings about you. Thanks a million Tomy.

    Tomi is an amazing host. He knows everything about the area and will go out of his way to make about anything happen for you while staying here. The hostel is a short walk from the bus stop and beach. Rooms were clean and have outdoor balcony space overlooking the bay. A nice new lounge/kitchen area well away from the sleeping area lets you choose whether you want to sleep/chill or be more social. He also added another shower, bathroom, and second laundry machine. You should stay here.

    This was one of the best hostel experiences I have ever had. Tomi, the host, does an excellent job and made everything incredibly welcoming and easy. He even met us at the ferry dock from Corfu so we wouldn’t have any problems finding his place. The hostel is clean, with a nice view of the bay and surrounding hills. Tomi has recently added a new bathroom and a really nice common area to make things more comfortable and convenient for guests. This is the only place to stay in Saranda!
