One of my favourite hostels I've been to. It's located about 300m or so from the city centre in a youth centre. The location itself is in an older traditional style Albanian house with yard and tall gate, but the interior of the house seems completely renovated. There's two seperate yards for hanging out in, as well as a 1st floor terasse. Rooms and bathrooms were clean and there are built in lockers with a key. I think there was a small cafe or bar too, but I didn't look closer. Highly recommend.

Im generally not fussy but really wouldnt recommend this hostel. Theres no reception, the staff dont help you at all. They close the gate at 11pm and theres no one there to let you in, despite it saying "no curfew" on Hostelword. A cat shat on the couch in the kitchen, we told the staff about it and they said the cleaner would clean it in the morning. it was still there when we were checking out. Really unclean. It has such potential, with a lovely outdoor garden, bar and balconies but bad staff
