Property Description

The Wanderers Hostel provides a social and comfortable atmosphere in a historic home. We are located within minutes of the city center on one of the most beautiful streets in the city! Our family has owned this home for generations and recently renovated the entire thing, including two large gardens in the front and rear appropriate also for cyclist entering and resting. A comfortable open lounge, outdoor bar and guest kitchen.

We are located less than 5 minutes from the historic city center and bus station on the road called Gjuhadol ('joo-ha-dol'). We are even closer to the main road with historic buildings, bars and restaurants, called Pedonale ('Peh-doh-na-lei').

Beds and entire rooms are available, plus free breakfast, free wifi, cheap laundry machine, bikes to rent and all the Albanian hospitality you can handle. Each mattress and bedframe is brand new. Bed rental includes a locking cabinet large enough for multiple bags. Rooms are spacious and airy.

    Cannot recommend this place highly enough! The staff are lovely and insanely helpful. Such great value for money and amazing vibes. Great for solo travellers or groups, I met such amazing people. And they can help with everything you need for the Theth-Valbona hike. I’ll be back!

    The BEST hostel I have stayed at in 7 years of travelling! Exceptional welcoming and fun atmosphere, great breakfast as well as kind and helpful staff. I'd go back to Albania just to stay at this hostel.

    The hostel was very nice and clean. Location is perfect as it’s right in the center. The garden gives a cool place to relax outside. The staff is really friendly and incredibly helpful for anything you need.

    Right in the middle of the main strip in Shkoder. Loud at night and the kind of small bathroom seemed to get flooded by the shower. Superb staff who are extremely helpful especially when organizing events.

    What want a hostel to be. It's not a 5 star hotel, but it's got a good vibe, cheap beer, enough bathrooms, and a great outdoor garden chill area.

    Very social yet chill hostel, great for single travellers. You'll meet plenty of fellow travellers in the garden commonroom/bar from late afternoon onwards. After 21:00 there is usually a bit more party activity yet it mellowed out by 23:00 so it's not too noisey. Plenty of helpful staff. Draft beer is only 100LEK (€0.90) . There is always a group of ~10 people heading out to for the Valbona to Theth hike eveyday. The hostel they arrange in Valbona is stunning and very hospitable! Must do.

    The staff was very nice! They are very helpfull and kind. We had a private room and I thought it wasn’t very clean, but it also wasn’t dirty. Overall a very good experience. Would recommend it and stay here again.

    Need to be unbiased here... The place needs a good do-over. It's seriously worn down. Not the place you want to chill after a 17km hike. Bathrooms are average at best, and have been kind of knocked up in place with timber walls and dodgy locks. Definitely a place you just want to dump your stuff and shift off. Well located but there are better newer options. Bar options were very limited. Staff are friendly although keep to themselves. Not really much interaction in the place.
