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.

Staff couldn't be more welcoming, position ideal and general quality higher. Had a flawless 2 nights stay at this hostel, one of the best I've been ever. 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...

We stayed two nights and enjoyed the hostel. It's central location is a perfect starting point to discover Tirana, the staff is ready to support you with useful information. 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...

Firstly, you may see a "Tirana Backpackers Hostel" listed in some guidebooks with a totally different address. This is the old address, so go by the one on this site. The hostel is located in Myslum Shuri! Taxi drivers may not know the place by name and I almost got taken to the wrong location, so just make sure they... More

I heard about this place through a flier and as the first backpackers in Albania thought it would be worth checking out. They have changed location and the new location is basically a bar with some rooms above. There is no backpacker vibe at all, very little city information and I kind of get the feeling that it is just... More

The Tirana Backpacker Hostel is very lively due to the presence of a bar, a terrace and food facilities. The staff is very helpful and friendly. The room, with connected toilet and shower, was clean and from good quality. I think the wifi connection was poor at the third floor.

Only staying for one night while passing through Albania, Tirana Backpacker Hostel turned out to be an awesome hostel with great service in a fantastic location. I paid 12 Euros for an 8 bed dorm with en-suite bathroom, lockers and A/C (cost 3 euros). The bathroom was immaculately clean and looked like one you'd find in a nice hotel. The... More
