Property Description

We just got voted ‘Best Hostel in Albania’ for the THIRD year in a row at the 2020 Hoscars!

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....

Nice, and decent place. Breakfast was good. The owner and people managing the place are informative, and can guide you to some nice off beat locations.

Staff are friendly and informative, and the open plan common areas are fantastic to socialise. Bathrooms and dorms are extremely clean with comfortable beds. My only recommendation would be to have curtains for beds but not a must. Overall, we loved our time at Stone City Hostel and would highly recommend staying here.
