A basic hotel in easy walking distance to the city center. The room was clean. The owner was very friendly. For an extra pay (a little cheaper than a taxi) he took us to the airport. Breakfast was fine.

Great location. Clean. But, whats up with the blurred glass in the door to the bathroom. The toilet was just inside, next to/almost in front of the door and we were a whole bunch who shared room. haha .. No worries :D

this is not a hostel in the traditional sense, rather actually a hotel/serviced apartment with some lower storey rooms downgraded and sold as hostel. so don't expect a socialising environment. 'dorms' have 3 beds with good quality mattress, remember it is essentially still a hotel. Cleanliness is good enough, no complaints. Owner had very bad attitude with not the slightest... More

Although it's not your traditional hostel (the layout and feel is more like a hotel) the super friendly staff and the crazy cheap prices had us sold! We accidentally got stuck in Berat after missing the last bus back, so we rang Freddie's and they moved our bags to storage for the night, for free instead of us paying for... More

I stayed two nights in this hostel with my girlfriend. It was a peaceful experience in a cosy hostel very close the main square of Tirana. Rooms seem to be renewed recently and they are full of comfort (computer, tv, air conditioner..). The bed was very comfortable and the toilet as well was so clean. We also payed for the... More

Pros: cheap, on a quiet street off the Main Street, near the bus stop to Shkoder (10 minute walk), breakfast and coffee included, good wifi connection, clean, grocery stores and food vendors nearby. Cons: my taxi driver had a hard time finding this place so bring a map, don't expect anything fancy in this area.

Freddy's Hostel is perfect if you're looking to spend time in Tirana. During our stay in this great city, we stayed here on two separate occasions. The room was comfortable and clean, good shower with hot water and A/C in the room etc. Breakfast is tasty and a great way to start your day. The staff at Freddy's are also... More

Minutes away from the main square, Freddy's is a modern hotel in a charming commercial street. The rooms are large and very well appointed. The decoration is tasteful. Breakfast was good although the dining area is so small that you have to queu for a table. WiFi was excellent. Most importantly Freddy himself runs the place and is always at... More

Our room was very comfortable and clean. Good A/C. Breakfast was very nice, lots of different options to choose from. The only small issue we had was no shower curtain on the shower made it difficult to shower without wetting everything else in the bathroom! Very much enjoyed our stay and would recommend Freddy's as a very good value place... More

We've been in Tirana in august and we chose to stay at Freddy's (found on lonely Planet). The hostel is very nice, rooms are clean and large, with private bathrooms with shower. The customer service is excellent, they even made us a special discount when we came back for our last night at the end of our Albanian holiday, giving... More
