The Shkolla Hostel is operating from the school in Vuno. During the first years of operation the school was used to accommodate backpackers only during July and August, as the school was still in function. Since 2011 the school is not in function anymore because the population of the village is too small. Shkolla Hostel is now open between June 1st till the end of September.

Cancellation Policy: 1 day before the arrival

We welcome everyone in our hostel. The age of our guests varies between 3 to 65 and come from all over the world.

We respect the village and always work with volunteers. The money we earn here will flow back into the community and the other schools in the area. In the last year the schools have been able to buy computers, new furniture and have better sanitary facilities. View House Rules

    We loved this hostel so much. Ended up staying longer than planned. The people that run it are great and the location is beautiful, close to beautiful beaches - only a nice hike away. Beautiful setting in an old town and near a beautiful old church and school. We would definitely come here again! xx

    Would be happy to go back. Lovely place. People who run the hostel are really nice and friendly. The facilities are all ok, functional. I loved the setting in the front yard with the fairy lights and the the olive trees.

    Perfect if you want to stay in a more rural area to escape the crowds and like to hike to less crowded places, especially beaches. Its easy to get there by bus, but also hitchhiking is no problem in this area. Kitchen is well equipped and all the other facilities are also well taken care of.

    This hostel is not for everyone, but I loved it! It's off the beaten track, in an old school. There are camping sites avail. There are outdoor showers/ toilets but all are kept very clean and well stocked. There's a view over the water and a 1- 1.5 hour walk to the famous Gjipe beach. There's no wifi, and no ATM in town. There's an ATM at Jalë beach though. There's a small market in town enough to buy groceries to cook a meal. You can hitch hike around nearby easily. Would stay again :)

    It's hard to know exactly what to say about this hostel. It is awesome, bonkers, chilled out......stressful. I may be a bit too precious for a place like this, although I DID end up staying for 3 nights. I loved the staff and the wild dogs. I loved the beaches. I hated the hikes to the beaches, but loved that you can hitch hike to them and back.

    The hostel is 1 and half hour walking from Gjipe canyon and beach. It is located in a nice natural setting with trees and nice nature around. Staff was nice and friendly. No WiFi, more like a rural experience.

    The location is beautiful, the hike to the beach is great. The hostel itself is a cool place with a great atmosphere. The downsides are the lack of (drinking) water, the outside facilities (toilet and shower are both outside), and the staff not being on top of things. It's a cool place but you should be prepared for the bare minimum when it comes to facilitie and cleanliness.

    I left the hostel before spending the night as I had friends in Himara in a hostel with better facilities for a similar price. When i arrived it was the final week before the hostel closed for the winter. The staff were friendly but The facilities were not great. The view from the hostel is lovely. For me, the outdoor showers with the water pump broken ( so fresh water very limited), no Wi-Fi, no local shop, squat toilets down a little dark walkway and termites in the doorframes were too much
