Property Description

3 time winner of the award 'Best Hostel in Albania'

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....

I had a great stay. The hostel is nice and well located (although be prepared for the walk uphill from the bus stop to the old town!). I did a walking tour and archaeological expedition run by the hostel owner, Walter, and both were excellent and really added to my trip. The breakfast is very nice too. Overall I would highly recommend!
