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

There is little not to like about Freddy's. Okay, there are no stunning views from the rooms and from the outside it looks nothing special but it's great value for money, the rooms are comfortable, clean and very well-quipped (with TV's, fridges, free wi-fi, fresh towels daily), the location great and the staff are friendly and very helpful. We travelled... More

In the middle of the town, close to everything! 5 min walk to the Opera, the pyramid and the Mosque. Close to city shopping. Very nice staff and cheap and clean rooms. Good WiFi. OK breakfast. Very good for families, we were 2 families from Gothenburg Sweden who liked Freddys.

Freddy's is a great place for the cost. We found our room very clean, the staff friendly, and the breakfast simple yet fresh and filling (fresh vegetables, cheese, eggs, seasonal fruit, fresh baked rolls, strong coffee). A two minute walk to the main bus drop-off and National Museum. The staff upgraded us to a bigger room with a computer inside... More

What a great place! I would highly recommend Freddy's to anyone wanting to stay in Tirana. It is more like a basic hotel than a hostel. The rooms have private ensure bathrooms and TVs. The breakfast in the morning is great and the service was great. We stayed in a double room (€25 per night) but when we arrived were... More

Freddy's hostel is a great place to stay in Tirana. It is very close to the city center, only 500 m to the main square. The rooms are big, comfortable and clean; each bedroom has a tv and refrigerator. There is also free wifi. Breakfasts are included, and they are also very good: eggs, fresh fruits, pastries...

Its more than a hostel.Freddy offers small but functional and modern rooms for the travellers who want to be close to where the action is: 3 min walking to the center of Tirana, historical Skanderberg square with its impressive 3m's, the monument, the museum and the mosque! within 100 meters from Freddy's you will find the bakery, the grocery store,...

It's more like a hotel turned into seperate dorms. Imagine a hotel room with 3 seperate beds inside. I stayed there when everything else was booked and they gave me a room not central to their main location. Room was very clean and I had it to myself so I guess it's like having your own hotel room which was... More
