    We had a fantastic stay at backpackers. Very clean and comfortable beds and Tomi went out of his way to help us and make us feel at home. You must stay here if you are in Saranda!

    Perfect location. Less than 5 minute walk to restaurants and the sea, & less than 1 minute walk to the convenience/grocery store, & fast food. The hostel is VERY CLEAN as well — Tomi cleans it MULTIPLE times a day. The lockers are huge & the shower gets really hot :) Side note: i accidentally left my white acrylic paint (i am a painter) at home and tomi walked to 5 different stores with me just to help me find more. it’s the smallest gestures that make the biggest impact. BEST HOSTEL EVER!

    Tomi was so kind. Never had someone help me with the bus to and from other things or exchange money, just helped getting there be a lot smoother and faster so your can go out and do other things. Place is legit so close to the ferry it’s the best. The vibe is nice. When you walk into drawings on the walls it’s a lot but it’s a great place and very central

    I had a good time at this hotel. Tommy is the most friendliest and helpful host I've ever met in my life. He was always willing to assist you and also check up to see you're actually comfortable and having a good time which I did really appreciate. This hostel is literally close to everything you can think of in the town of Waranda. I will recommend it for anybody that's going to Saranda

    This hostel is the best! We only stayed for one night, but Tommi made the hostel feel like home! He was always there to help us, and even walked us to the ferry terminal. The hostel has a great atmosphere so it’s easy to meet people. Thanks for a great stay!

    Had an amazing time at Sr backpackers. Tommy is such a nice guy, he met me in the street as I was about to walk straight by. He will help you out with everything to make your trip super. Love the set up of the balconies, it makes it real easy to make friends. Also Tommy set up a fire and made a barbecue for us on the beach the one night which was just the icing on the cake for the end of my trip. I will definitely be returning in the future, cheers mate.

    The owner of the property is the most amazing hostel host I’ve ever met! He made the whole experience, very hospitable and welcoming. As a group of 4 girls traveling in Albania, he made us feel very safe and secure. He even walked us to find currency and all the go to spots to eat and find taxis. The hostel was a 1 minute walk from the ferry and 5 minutes from the beach and shops. Wonderful experience all around!

    Slightly basic hostel but more than made up by Tommy's hospitality. He will literally help you with anything you need, all with a smile on his face. Confortable stop for 1 night in Sarandë.
