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 :)

    Home away from home! It really was my home to come back to multiple times :) Amazing staff and great atmosphere! They can tell you all about town, Valbona-Theth experience, Shkoder Lake... Comfy rooms with lockers, own light, plug-ins and curtains. Nice and clean. Great, delicious breakfast as well! Good location, right around the corner from the walking street. Doggos and cats included (doggos love dentasticks, hint hint). Bikes for rent + free parking at the parking lot around the corner.

    Loved this hostel! In such a good location and easy to find. Staff are always around and full of information and tips for your trip and stay. I did the hike from valbone to theth and the staff were so helpful in getting it organised. Amazing breakfast, great common area and bar.

    Best place to stay in Shkoder. Staff are super welcoming and can help with all sorts of daytrips and advice for hiking in the area. There are a lot of cute dogs and cats at this hostel, and a great social atmosphere. The bar is open in the evening and does a great happy hour. Dorm rooms were comfortable with curtains, individual reading lights, outlets by the bed, and air conditioning that worked amazing (a must during summer!). Great location in the center of town. I'd definitely stay again!

    Absolutely loved our stay here. To start off the daily breakfast was delish & cooked with local produce. The little eco hostel had chilled vibes and friendly/helpful service throughout our stay. Facilities where super clean, with our room being quiet and comfortable. The outdoor common area was great way to chat to other guests and had tasty cheap local beer. Also enjoyed the use of bicycles to explore surrounding areas. Worth a stay if passing thorough.

    This is the best hostel i’ve ever stayed in. The rooms and the bathrooms are clean. And there is always hot water! Breakfast is in buffet style with many different dishes. But the best at my casa is the wonderful staff. During my stay I became ill and the staff was very helpfull in buying some groceries for me. And not to forget: the wonderful dogs and kittens...

    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.
