This has been the most exceptional hostel I've ever experienced. The staff exhibited extraordinary friendliness, and the room, location, and vistas were truly breathtaking. I would not hesitate to stay here again.

Lovely hostel, very clean, but no atmosphere whatsoever. One of the older ladies and man will be constantly over your shoulder if you use the kitchen area. Kinda felt like I was walking on eggshells around them all the time. Probably wouldn’t recommend it to the average traveller. However, if you’re looking for a quiet place to kick back, this is for you!

Oh my gosh, what a wonderful family! I stayed 6 nights and loved it. The location is perfect, right next to the river where you can easily cross the bridge to the other side of the river, next to many many restaurants, walking distance from everything you could want or need, very cozy and homey. Most notably, the family was very helpful, kind and welcoming! Berat has been my favorite city so far. I felt like a member of the family :)
