    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 owner is THE man! Such a great low key, family vibe. I loved just hanging out in the common area chit chatting with others and hearing stories from the owner, who is hilarious. I loved that the location was a few minutes away from the center, much less chaotic but still very close to everything. Breakfast was great! Free coffee and tea available all day, free towels, comfortable beds, big communal kitchen and area to wash clothes and dry them outside.

    This is a FANTASTIC place to stay. The owner is so kind and helpful, and he really made my stay in Tirana special. The rooms are nice and clean, and there's a fully stocked kitchen to use, as well as free breakfast and laundry. The hostel is in a private villa on a quiet street, and is very secure. The atmosphere is really relaxed and friendly, and it's a great place to meet new people. This is a great place, and everyone should stay here.

    Great place for a bit of quiet in the mania that is Tirana. Calvin was great in sorting out parking for us and just generally making us feel welcome. Not a party hostel, but a nice atmosphere, if not hugely social (at least during my visit). Really good value too. Also they provide a huge amount of info about places to eat and things to see in Tirana.

    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'...so 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!
