    What can I say about the famous Tomi that hasn’t already been said. This hostel feels like a family and the people working here would give you the shirt of their back. I never met anyone who didn’t have an amazing time in Saranda Backpackers. This is the best hostel choice in Saranda.

    I really enjoyed my stay in SR Backpackers Hostel! Tomi and Rino are extremely helpful and they made sure my stay was enjoyable and attended to. The hostel location is right in front of the promenade, you can take a good walk by the beach, have some food or a drink. Tomi always tries to help you make the best of your trip by giving recommendations, giving you info on transportation, and even making sure you're not overcharged. Overall, great experience!

    Saranda Backpackers is highly rated by me during these Covid Virus times because I felt secure while staying here. The included breakfast was tasty. Staff is almost fanatical about his cleaning during these times. The balcony is perfect for getting some morning sunshine. Out the front of the hostel is the promenade which has been almost totally re-done. There are numerous coffee places open and many restaurants are in the process of re-opening. The Butrint bus, by the hostel, is 100 Lek.

    Amazing hostel, the owner is so nice. He cooked us a simple breakfast and lunch. I feel like he would do anything for the people staying at his hostel and he has a very fatherly feeling. Very nice man and I loved this hostel. The hostel is right next to the beach, very clean, and the owner was very accommodating. He let me stay in a six-bedroom by myself with a balcony because it wasn't very busy when I stayed there. I would recommend this hostel to anyone staying in Sarande.

    Tomi was an amazing host to my experience in Sarande/a. The breakfast was great every morning and if you needed something Tomi would find a way to help or do it for you. The location was perfect as it was next to the waterfront and a minute walk to the bus that takes you to Butrint NP or Ksamil. Definitely recommend staying here!

    Tomi has a reputation for excellent customer service, For someone who goes out of their way to solve all your problems e.g. help you find a good place to eat, or a place to change money, or where to visit.. or change bed.. or have fruit instead of omelette.. anything he makes a big effort to help.. so I can only give 10.0 rating as this level of help is very rare.

    If you're ever planning on going to Sarandë, you must stay at Saranda Backpackers. The owner, welcomes you with open arms outside the building and from the first minute to the last makes you feel at home. Every morning he cooks you breakfast and if your lucky he'll make lunch for you too. He's a real gentleman with a big heart. Especially, during these Covid times, he keeps the place clean and is open for business. From Day 1 I have felt very comfortable here. I can't recommend him enough.

    Given the pandemic I wasn't sure what to expect at Saranda Backpackers, but staff lived up to the reviews and was very accommodating for anything I needed, including letting me stay in a four bed dorm by myself to socially distance. You can't beat a fresh cooked breakfast every morning or the view. While covid measures were more aligned with the local culture, staff and the other residents were very respectful of my safety choices.
