Having moved four years ago from New York City to live in the pristine nature of Valbona in the Northern Albanian Alps, I sometimes need a dose of city - and make no mistake Tirana is a vibrant exciting city - something like what NYC must have been like back on the 60s!

If are traveling alone is a good place to meet people. If not also great. The staff is very amicable always willing to help. The place is clean and the beds are confortable. The only down side is the bathroom which gets a bit wet after a shower but nothing that would get you to choose any where else to... More

We stayed here a couple of times and found it to be a great hostel. Robo is really helpful, responded very quickly to emails, helping us with ongoing arrangements before we'd even stayed there. Nice garden for chilling in, apart from the Mosquitos. Breakfast good as well. And they arrange a really good taxi service to the airport, paying the... More

Great place in the center of Tirana. Very helpful English speaking staff. We were given a map of the city marked some nice pubs. Morning modest but delicious breakfast. Clean rooms with private bathrooms. Highly recommended!

Chilled atmosphere and a really helpful crew. The rooms are clean and the location is amazing. It is a little expensive for Albania but they are really helpful and can point you in the right direction for the continuation of your travels across the country.

Dorms are just for 4, with lockers included for free. As free are the breakfast, linen and towels. Ensuite huge bathroom, with shower, and a balcony. Living rooms and kitchen are superb, with...

In the evening there has been a nice concert in the courtyard full of beautiful plants and flowers. It's such a nice location that also local people like to visit the... More

I stayed here for 2 nights and the service was fantastic. After coming from France and Italy, it was a shock to finally meet some friendly staff and locals, the staff here are at pains to make your visit as comfortable and stress free as possible. The rooms were the cleanest I've had yet and the free breakfast was great.... More

Very good hostel, located behind a petrol station on one of the main streets in the central area of Tirana, about 10/15 minutes walk from the central square (Sheshi Skënderbej); you have to first get through a bar / restaurant to get to it, which turns out to be very handy as you come downstairs from the dorm and you...
