Property Description

Arka Hostel opened the doors since 2015. In the last months we changed the location. Arka hostel is set in what one Hostelworld reviewer calls a 'spacious, lovely space' with a distinctly youthful and joyful Albanian atmosphere. Many of our guests say they 'would always go back' to this hostel when in Shkodra. The 'knowledgeable', 'lovely and helpful' staff are frequently praised for providing 'very focused, personalized attention' to guests, while visitors can 'meet new people and have a good laugh' in the downstairs multi-functional bar. Our rooms are very clean and we offer the best quality in town for low price. Whether you're a backpacker or a budget traveler, you will enjoy Arka Hostel. The grand charm of the new building combined with our great service and location will be one of the most unique city experiences you will have in Shkodra. Arka Hostel boasts not only a fantastic Shkodra city location and building building but our services are unbeatable!

Arka Hostel is located in the Shkodra City Center, near the only city cinema. You can visit all interesting sights in 5 to 10 minutes from our property. The Witness and Memory site (communism museum) is only 2 minutes walk from Arka. Marubi, National Photography Museum is only 5 minutes walk from Arka.

I really appreciated my stay at Arka. I planned to stay one night but stayed for 4! After doing the Peaks of the Balkans hike, I appreciated the quiet atmosphere, extremely comfortable beds, washing and drying facilities and a shared room to myself. This is not a very social hostel (at least not at the end of September/the season) but was perfect for me who needed recovery, cleanliness, comfort and her own space after hiking. The free breakfast (coffee+croissant) at the bar is also a treat.

WiFi was not working properly and the toilet sit was broken. Kitchen utilities were super dirty and breakfast is a coffe with a dry croissant. Also keep in mind that at 11 pm they close the door from hostel because of covid regulations.
