We stayed at Freddy's Hostel for 3 nights. The common room is nice, our room was clean and ok. I hated leaking and smelly bathroom. View from our window was onto the wall. Breakfast was ok. Hostel is close to the city center. Unfortunately Freddy is the only staff member who speaks english there, so communication was a bit tricky.

Very pleasant. Great location. Good breakfast if you're not too picky. Would use again! Freddy's is on a quiet side street a few blocks from main square. Pastry shops, coffee, little grocery shop, and a great restaurant (135) within the block.

More than best hostel, hospitality number one and very near with center city so don't need taxi to move. And more important is Fredy the owner every time ready for customers, he can come to pick up at Tirana airport! I will turn back again there! Best price at Tirana. Thank's for yours hospitality in your hostel, Fredy!

it's a great place to stay for budget travellers, central location in little side street, affordable for solo travellers, good enough service, nice little breakfast, small porch to hang out for breakfast or a sunset beer

I had the good fortune of staying at Freddy's while on Young Pioneer Tours, Eurasian Adventure Tour. What a nice combination Hostel and hotel. The rooms in both the hostel and hotel sections are very nice, the baths are all clean and in like new condition. The small breakfast area is also very nice. Best of all is the owner,... More

The hostel is very close to the Skanderbeg Square, the very center of Tirana. The staff is beyond friendly and Freddy will always be there, making sure everything is working smoothly. During our stay, Freddy exceeded our expectations in solving small issues with our bathroom. If you need anything from them, you will certainly have it. The room was very... More

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
