    I loved being at the English Hostel. Everybody was so friendly and welcoming to me. My bed was very comfortable and the breakfast and coffee in the morning were delicious. The neighborhood is vibrant and lively. I would definitely stay here again!

    Easily one of the best hostels I’ve stayed in all my travels. The owner and management are super helpful and the breakfast every morning is honestly just too good. Very close to essential shops and public transport, but hidden away from the noisy streets. Highly recommended if your staying in Tirana.

    This is the place to stay when visiting Tirana. The staff here is super friendly and coming forward when it comes to any help you need. The facility offers you anything what a traveler is looking for, a full equipped kitchen, 24 hours hot water and I mean hot water, enough bathrooms and toilets. Sun tanning balconies in the dormrooms and the most important and fair for any budget traveler, free laundry. So no rip off for sure. The English Hostel has the potential to grow into a club 😃👍

    Moving from USA to Albania was no easy feat, but the English Hostel made it a seamless experience. I got the airport pick up service like a superstar. The driver (Alket) was there waiting for me with a sign with my name on it. He helped me exchange money, with my 5 bags, and was super informative about Albania. He helped me with deciding where to focus my living search. He also offers tours. The hostel vibe had great energy, people, and breakfast was a refreshing bonus! Made great connections!

    Nice hostel near the city center of Tirana. Owner provides guests with a map of all the things to do (food, shopping, sightseeing and more). Good value for the money. Has a nice balcony where most of the guests sit on throughout the day. Good WiFi and air conditioning. If you’re in Tirana for a few days and need an affordable hostel near the city center, then this is a nice option

    Good Hostel thats close to the centre. Tirana is a small compact city so most of the major galleries and sights are within walking distance of the Hostel. The owner was super friendly and helpful and the breakfast is really good. Kitchen was big and well stocked and the beds in the dorms were super comfy.

    It was so stinky and dirty - I found a living worm in the breakfast buffet on my last day. I won’t recommend this hostel
