Stayed here for 2 nights during a cycling trip. Hostel is a cool place and the basement is a god-send in the heat of summer. lots of good chill out spaces outside as well. Good quiet location on the edge of the city centre, was quite hard to find, although the locals seem used to guiding lost travellers to it.Free... More

We enjoyed our stay at Hostel Albania. The owner (Claas, a fun German dude) and the people that work there are very sweet and helpfull. At first we were a bit disappointed because our room was not at the hostel but 2 minute walk away from it. Claas showed us that he put that info clearly on his site and... More

I stayed at Hostel Albania for four nights with friends, and it is the ideal place to come back and chill out after a day in the busy city. The staff were very helpful, providing a map and explanation of how to get to all the various bus stops (there is no central bus station in Tirana). The dorm was... More

Usually I don't like hostels, but being alone in the country's capital on a weekend, I wanted to try and find some people to hang out with in Tirana. Initially, the place doesn't quite feel anything special, you need to look at the pics here to be able to find it, as the gate looks exactly the same as the... More

Great hostel, just a short walk from the market and a few minutes from the centre of Tirana. Exceptionally friendly and helpful staff. The sort of place where everyone talks to each other no matter where in the world they are from. Good dorm rooms, well equipped kitchen and a lounge with TV. Draught beer available - it was popular... More

Great hostel, been in a lot of hostels in Europe and this is definitely one of the best. Great rooms, clean, very relaxed and nice atmosphere, location fine and staff is nice and sometimes go out with guests for a dinner or have a bbq at the hostel. There were also free yoga lessons. The old villa is a great... More

I am glad to say that my favourite hostel has not changed! The same friendly hosts, the same charming atmosphere, the same low prices! I recommend this hostel because of its great location, considerable prices and attractive feel.

Hi Militza, thank you for your review. We always try to make it as nice and comfortable as possible for our guests. As you wrote our outside area is huge and peaceful, the breakfast we serve is fresh and healthy. She-Ra the dog is only a few hours per day in the hostel, and it seems you like her too.... More

Top spot. great night tour with dinner. Plenty of space to chill. Atmosphere is on the money too. It's a great place to get a feel for Tirana, both the city and the people. Breakfast is a winner as well.

I had a pleasure spent in Hostel Albania, two nights. It was really great time. If Tirana is really noisy city, in hostel youll find peaceful atmosphere. Just chillax, with lemon trees around you. The owner is really cool guy who loves postkomunism staff. Rooms are nice, fantastic garden where you can rest, really worth to visit.
