Property Description

2024 winner of the award 'Best Hostel in Albania' for the 4th time in a row.

Stone City Hostel is situated in an monumental house at the start of the bazar. It has a shaded garden with fruit trees, a huge roof terrace and brilliant views of the castle. Inside there's a big common room with a fully equipped kitchen and nice places to chill out. There are three dorms and one double room, all with air-conditioning and custom made beds with large lockers underneath. We have fast free Wi-Fi, free use of computers, and a bar full of cold drinks. We provide a nutritious breakfast so you're ready for a great 'Gjiro-experience'. There's lots to see and do in Gjirokaster and its surroundings. The area has been inhabited for millenia and is blessed with both natural and cultural wonders. We've explored it thoroughly and like to show you the best sites. We organise 4WD and walking trips in the area. If you like to organise your own trip we are happy to give you suggestions and useful maps!

The hostel is run by American sweetheart Brenna, crazy Dutchman Walter and a mix of well travelled locals and foreigners. We want to make sure you feel right at home here and we organize lots of free activities, including swim-trips, city walks and board game nights. Come relax, explore, hike and discover with us and if you stay long enough you might just try one of Brenna's famous cakes....

Best hostel we have stayed at throughout our travels this summer. You can tell when a hostel is designed and run by a fellow traveller. Facilities well thought out and extremely clean. Staff super friendly and helpful. Complimentary breakfast is tasty and the location is great. Wish we could have stayed longer!

This is a near perfect hostel. The rooms are comfortable and spacious with huge bins. The kitchen is clean and well stocked with filtered water. The outside area is beautiful and invites creating community. The bathrooms are very clean and easy to use. The staff is very helpful and kind. Highly recommend. Only suggestion is to have curtains on the bunks.
