    Really nice hostel very centrally located in Tirana. 10-15 walk from international bus station and many great resturants close by, also decent size supermarket less than a minute from the hostel. Very laidback atmosphere and can easily understand this is a kind of place you just want to keep staying in. Breakfast was good and healthy, bread was super good, and different kinds of fruits every day. Also super tasty jam :) Hungarian girl who checked me in also super sweet and very friendly.

    The greatest hostel in the world. INSTRUCTIONS: Sell your house. Sell your car. Abandon all worldly possessions. Flee your country. Fly to Albania. Free your mind. Open your third eye. Align all of your chakras one by one until the whole universe opens up before you. Check into Tirana Backpacker’s Hostel. Ask for “Risa”. She is the manager. Sign up for dinner. p.s. hiya kris

    Stayed for two weeks and would recommend here to anyone. An amazingly friendly, relaxing and homely place. All of the volunteers and Chris (and Risa) really do make the place work and they generally want you to enjoy yourself. Every evening they’ll also cook a great vegetarian meal too. It’s very clean. Also full of paintings from other backpackers too.

    Booked for a few nights, ended up staying for 5 weeks in total. One of the best hostels I have stayed at in 4+ years of solo travel, also the best one I stayed at in Albania. I highly recommend the delicious, healthy and inexpensive vegetarian dinners. Something that could be improved is the mattresses — they are just thin pieces of old foam.

    Really friendly staff and a really nice atmosphere. Great for solo travellers, or groups. Easy to meet people and share travel stories. The vegetarian meal cooked by the hostel staff was really nice. The bed in the double private room was very comfortable.

    The atmosphere is the best part here! Feels really community oriented, the decorations look quirky and upcycled, there is a cheap vegetarian dinner cooked by the staff every day, everything is right for it to feel like you are welcome. The facilities are adequate for a hostel, though the rooms could feel cleaner/more comfortable (but really only marginally, it’s perfectly fine + everything else makes up for it). the hostel was really busy despite it being the off season for Albania and we met lots of intere

    The place is in a decent location from the bus stops. One thing tho is you can’t bring or cook meat in the property so if you are staying a long time that could be an issue. Wifi was TERRIBLE so not ideal if you even need to book a ticket
