Property Description

The hostel is located in an Historical house in the center of Shkodër. It is over 100 years old and was built by an Italian ancestor. The home will welcome you with a big open space garden with fruit trees and plants. A large veranda allows the guests to sit, relax and socialize with other guests while trying Albania's only craft beers and wines.

We've dedicated the hostel especially to travelers that enjoy hiking, biking, and mountaineering, but it is open to all who simply love life, nature, human contact, bio-eating, and agro-tourism. We try to use Eco-friendly practices and reduce our impact on the environment such as recycling, composting, use of solar panels, seasonal eating and purchasing products from local farmers.

Our place is absolutely the best to relax, recover, have fun, stay safe, and learn new things while in Shkodër.
We are not a party hostel but we never refuse a raki (albanian spirit) and a nice chat at our little bar in the front. We host cultural events and often work with local artists to promote the culture of Shkoder and Albania.

We help to organize the tours around our national parks such as Theth and Valbona. Including accommodation and transportation. We offer bicycle rentals to our guests and also offer free walking tours around Shkodra.

In winter all our rooms have heating and AC in summer.
We are located in the center of the city. Find Kinema Milenium, we are located on the other side of the street down a short alley. Look for the gate painted bright blue with the words 'Mi Casa es Tu Casa'
Remember: If in doubt, you should ask for 'Kinema Milenium' wherever you are in the city.
We love animals! we have 3 dogs and 2 cats that have all been rescued from the streets of Shkodra.

Come and be part of our family :) View House Rules

Thank you!

    Very beautiful place with a big heart and a lot of lovely details. The bed was very comfy, they provide towels, there is a big kitchen and a lot of space to relax inside and outside and the windows in my room even had mosquito nets. They help you with the transportation to the mountains and back but it’s really worth it to stay in Shkodër and at mi casa for a few nights.

    Alma and all the staff are incredible, super helpful with booking your hike (especially valbona-theth), and the outdoor space was perfect for meeting people and just hanging out. I ended up extending from 1 day to 4. I want to go back!

    Love this hostel. Alma is the sweetest and the environment truly makes you feel like home. It’s super cozy. One thing to note is quiet hours are at 11 PM onward and the bar shuts down. This was a perfect home base for going to theth for hiking. Thank you alma!

    One of my favorite hostel experiences! Great atmosphere, clean, and very social. Mostly hung out at the bar and met other travelers. Dorm rooms were comfortable and I felt I had good privacy. Staff here are super friendly and helpful, the owner helped me out a lot with getting my bus to the next destination. Highly recommend!

    Awesome location! And the nicest staff and owner. She wakes up every morning at 0600 to let her volunteers get rested, and pack lunches if you have an early morning tour. It was like having a mom caring for you while you’re traveling. The people who book the place are really down to earth too. I didn’t go to Theth but they have lots of people going that direction to link up. You can buy bus tickets from them. Overall, a very positive stay. Couldn’t ask for anything more! Thank you!

    I would like to recommend everyone this hostel. All of the staff, I MEAN ALL OF THEM, are extremely nice, accommodating, helpful to the power infinity. You won't be disappointed for once I guess. They exactly know what you need and they will help you with everything. The vibe of this place is so beautiful because of the people, guests and animals around.

    Super chill place. Love the vibe. Comfy beds. Excellent shower. Don't expect to party too much - there's a lot of people here hiking super early the next day, but that won't stop you having a drink and chatting the night away. You can rent bikes cheaply, and they have a heap of good suggestions for food, etc. Staff are awesome.

    Very nice central location and the outdoor areas were amazing. The indoors was okay, the AC was only on half the time and it got way too hot at night. But I would stay again. Great atmosphere

    Really beautiful hostel with amazing interiors. Other guests were friendly and most people are there for the hike so easy to connect with a bigger group. Most of the staff were great but one guy was a bit rude and reluctant to help. Also some of the rooms were lacking in security, the door of the dorm outside did not close properly at all which felt a bit unsafe and let bugs in. Great facilities overall and really clean and a cheap bar. Inside dorms were great.
