    Amazing location facing the promenade of Saranda. Toni was very welcoming... Sits outside the entrance of the building all day. Bed was pretty comfortable but as with other reviews beware there is no AC. Also a bit inconvenient 1 bathroom for like 14 people. Could get quite hot in summer. while location is good. the hostel itself is quite old and i think it's due for some renovations.

    This hostel was great. Comfy beds, air conditioned rooms were a saviour, staff very friendly and helpful, guests seemed to be evenly spread around the rooms so it wasn’t crowded. No real atmosphere but I was there in October. Location is manageable no complaints

    Tommy is a great host and always on hand to help with anything you need. He even cooked breakfast for everyone each morning. location was fantastic as it is just a 30 second walk from the ferry port and has a bus station at the end of the road that can take you to other parts of Albania. Could definitely benefit form an extra bathroom or two and a good deep clean. Overall a good value for money hostel with good cleanliness and a warm and helpful host.
