    Great place all around. Staff is friendly and helpful. Location is perfect with plenty of food options and lots of sights to explore. Small, so you are around your fellow travelers which makes it easy to make friends. Free breakfast can’t be beat! I booked for 2 nights and ended up staying 6. Highly recommended.

    Great people working there and excellent hospitality. Consider only having data or credits in your phone in order to call them at the entrance. If not, you can simply shout a bit (as I did) and they will hear you. Highly recommended and always again! :)

    The staff is what makes this hostel extra special. They are super friendly and helpful!!! They even go above and beyond the call of duty. The hostel itself is close to all the main attractions Tirana has to offer. The free breakfast provided is scrumptious. I would definitely stay at this hostel the next time I’m in Tirana. Thank you for making my stay extra special!

    Amazing time spent at the English hostel...owner from the U.S. and other staff really interact with the guests and seek to provide a worthwhile time in Tirana! Would for sure recommend to anyone traveling in the Albanian capital. Great location, the one downside I will say is that I was traveling without data/calling features for phone and once you arrive at the gate, there is no doorbell or you can't knock, just a sign that says 'call this number' could be problematic

    Calvin was a very helpful and enthusiastic host and the hostel had a nice, friendly vibe with free pasta for dinner for everyone. Free Breakfast was also great. My only problem was that the top bunk bed was really high so maybe reserve the lower one if you can. Overall a great place in a great location!
