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 breakfasts and dinners are always organic and vegetarian.

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 :)

    Wow, where to start? This charming hostel is run by Alma who is a very kind and knowledgable lady and her team of multi-national travellers. There is so much well designed space to chill and feel at home! Very clean facilities and comfortable beds. Not to mention the delicious, locally sourced, veggie breakfast. Cats and dogs are really well behaved. We met some really lovely and interesting people whilst staying here. Thank you for a very relaxing and enjoyable stay! Highly recommended :)

    Unbelievably amazing place. The owner and her daughter are fabulous and have taken such care to create the most hospitable atmosphere. There is so much history behind the house and you can feel the love in every detail. Breakfasts were outstanding (wow) and the cozy bar area invited everyone to join in the conversation. I can’t say enough good things about this place so please see for yourself! Great location too. Don’t make a mistake and stay anywhere else!!

    The negatives: the wifi was spotty and the showers were cold The positives: the historical, pre-Communist building (which housed the Russian Consulate once upon a time) is beautiful and centrally located. The hostess Alma and her staff are very kind. I stayed there out of season, and spent some very comfortable hours reading in front of the fire. Other than the wifi and showers, the facilities were all great. There are bikes to rent and animals to pet. Highly recommend!

    A fantastic hostel experience! Alma and Ani run the most homely hostel I have been to. All of the dorms are comfortable and, from what I saw, the private rooms are very well-appointed. The location is somewhat hard to find at first, but after that it is perfectly located near much good food and many nice streets to walk down. The free rental bikes are a huge plus as well, although some need a bit of maintenance. A wonderful experience, but beware of cats in your bed.

    Fabulous hostel. The owner is a lovely person who clearly wishes to impart Albanian hospitality and culture on the people who stay with her. The breakfast is a big part of that.

    The backpackers hostel is run by a lovely lady who is very sweet and extremely helpful. The breakfast here is completely vegetarian and is freshly cooked and is extremely tasty. They have adopted several pets (3 dogs, 1 cat and 1 kitten) and that was the most exciting bit for me and my boyfriend. The atmosphere is very lively and is an excellent place to meet people and make new friends. The rooms were very clean and well equipped and the staff was extremely nice. 10/10 recommend.
