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 :)

    Great places, great people. If you want some place to rest and chill go there, dogs and cat are friendly. Alma Annie and Nick will welcome you warmly. The hostel is in the center, next to everything you need.

    A beautiful purpose driven hostel full of history closely connected to Shkoder, Albania and family. This hostel truly breaths it’s mission of “mi casa es tu casa” (my house is your house), making its guests feel at home and finding ways to connect to the Shkoder /Global community. If that isn’t enough, it’s woman owned and the building has been from day 1! As a woman travel / blogger ( who is all about girl power, this is truly the icing on the cake.

    This hostel is absolutely superb, the staff are friendly, helpful. The facilities are cleaned daily, rooms are spacious, air conditioned, large lockers for the bigger backpacks, free wireless internet. All days, they'res secured doors at the entrance, it just gives any traveller the feeling of more security. The owner Alma are very helpful,lovely and flexible on that rule, just inform them first if you need to get some stuff done.I would highly recommend staying here.

    Wonderful! Very homey and welcoming. I loved the atmosphere and how inviting the people were. Definitely added to our experience. The hosts were wonderful in giving advice on where to eat and great places to explore. I wish I would have had a chance to spend more time here, and left inspired!

    We had an awesome time there. The staff is super friendly and extra helpful. They gave us recommendations on how to continue our travel and even organized our bus ride to Koman in the morning (the bis did us pick up in front of the hostel). If you go hiking in the north of Albania this Hostel is definitely the place to start your trip 🙂

    Absolutely lovely stay in the suite. Super central location, Alma and the hostel staff were incredibly helpful for coordinating car rentals and booking buses. Could not recommend more!

    Really liked our stay, the dogs made it feel like home! Clean common spaces and rooms, comfy beds, helpful staff and give excellent recommendations - if you stay and rent a bike to explore the lake definitely ask for the restaurant info. Delicious! The big con is that the wifi didn't reach to our 4 bed dorm, we only got it in the common spaces and the small con was that they only had decaf tea in the kitchen. FYI breakfast isn't included and bikes cost $500 leke/day to rent.

    An okay stay. Beds are not very comfy and make a lot of noise if somebody moves. Ladders are also pretty tough to get down from. The outside common area is a little small which sort of impacts the atmosphere and it is also full of flies which can be a tad annoying. Location is really good and they seem to have most facilities that a traveller might need.

    Very Good

    This is a lovely place with lovely people. However, you should only go there if you like dogs. The family and staff support a dog shelter and try to find new owners for the dogs. This is a nice initiative, however not always easy to combine with the hygienic expectations of a hostel: One dog pooped on the bathroom floor, which was a really bad surprise when I wanted to go to the toilet in the morning. So if you dont mind about that, then it is a lovely place to stay.
