If you're looking for a nice, clean, cozy, friendly and cheap place to stay in Tirana this is the place you're looking for. Hostel is nicely decorated (with a bohemian touch), rooms are spacious and tidy, bathrooms clean and the kitchen is well kept. The biggest asset of this hostel is the back yard where you can relax and talk... More

After my car broke down in a smaller town near Tirana, this hostel was an over-compensating positive experience right after. It immediately brought a feeling-at-home-ness I much needed. The location in the center is very practical (Next to a very good grill restaurant, just across the street) Even though the hostel is only 8 months old, its spirit looks already... More

This hostel was worth visiting Tirana for alone! The outdoor oasis style garden is such an easy place to chill out and get away from the busy, frantic streets of Tirana. There is a bar and lots of seats and hammocks to sit and meet other travellers. The hostel is in good walking distance to town and nice places to... More

The location is good, walking distance from where the bus drops you off in the centre. Lots of cheap take away food, local style and some restaurants and bars around. The hostel is very clean, the kitchen is very well equipped. The breakfast has boiled eggs, bread, jams, fresh fruit. The price is about 10-11 euros for a dorm bed... More

I strongly recommend this to anyone first arriving in Tirana on a budget. It's a decent location in a very vibrant area about 15 minutes' walk from the central plazas. I went with my girlfriend and we stayed in the only private room which is on the top floor so very quiet and includes an en suite. If you want... More

This place is really good, lovely bohemian feel. Staff are very helpful and friendly. Place felt like home straight away. Very welcoming all the time, good breakfast. A little noisey when ppl are in garden and mosque is close so you may be woken by that. The owners and staff are doing a fantastic job with this place.

When I was there two internship students lived there and they knew everything, also the staff is super friendly and can suggest you a lot... More

I'm amazed that this place got a bad review, but notice that it is the only one and was in 2012 so strongly suggest that you ignore it! The hostel is large, friendly, clean, relaxed and well equipped, with a selection of dorms and private rooms. The staff are great and can help you with info about the city and... More

Instantly acknowledged with smiles and genuine conversation when I first arrived, I found myself in a hostel that really cares for its guests. Maps and helpful info (including bus/taxi schedules and prices) in and around the Tirana area adorn the lobby. The staff couldn't be more friendly and accommodating (thanks for everything Anna and Emir!). The massive building is so... More

This place is in a great location, has amenities for travelers and is good value. We stayed in a private room rather than a dorm which was ideal for what we needed. Really friendly, welcoming staff. We will definitely return next time we're in Tirana.
