This hostel is in a convenient location, and has a great panoramic view of the mountains from their large balcony. Clean comfortable and social. Big kitchen and common areas. Has a popular resident cat, Machi, who will watch you closely with her hypnotic eyes and will cry until you share your food with her:-) Owners are very helpful with advice... More

Cute, clean and cosy hostel with super friendly and helpful owners/managers. Not too far from main square, perhaps a 15-miute walk. There's a patio and covered balcony for sitting outside and a spacious living room/kitchen.

Do you know that feeling when travel and stay in a family's house? So, that's is Milingona's feeling! Went party with some guests, with people from staff, learned about the Albania Culture, about the Flag (Julie, the Owner, is gonna give a whole awesome lesson about the meaning), learned how to play Backgammon (or "Tava", the albanian world for it)...

Some Hostels are basic, just a place to sleep. Not this one. The owner, Juli, makes you feel at home and knows all the good places to see. If you want to visit a place where they care about your travel experience then Milingona is the place to be. This is my second time to visit and if I come... More

I went to Tirana and Milingona hostel alone, and my idea was only to stay for one night there, but when I met Juli (one of the owners) and his family, I changed my plan and I stayed for five days there. This hostel has something special, maybe the people who was there, the ambient or they hospitality, they are... More

The hostel is very nice, it brings back an "older feel" It has older fasion decore, and it is very interesting to look at. The privacy is very nice, and the quiet makes it easy to rest. The general area is easy to get to, and pretty. I highly recomend this place.

We spend 2 amazing days in Tirana. Hostel is really perfect- I couldnt say any bad word. Dormitories are large and spacy, decorated in typical albanian way. Breakfast is really nice- fresh bread, cheese, vegetables, marmolades. There is a larg living room with sofas, a lot of books there and computer to use. And wonderful terrace of course, where you...

Compared to the other hostels in the Balkans, this one scored lower. The very minimal breakfast, disposition of the rooms and the organisation was chaotic are at the main reasons of our review. To be fair, we were at the peak of the season, so things might be better outside that time.

Thanks to staff for plesant stay and help in finding the bus to Skopje! Nice yard, cosy lounge room and comfortable kitchen - there is almost everything for any backpacker)) Atmospere is like something artistic and hippie - I like it!

This hostel truly was a complete joy to be part of for a few days. The staff is amazingly friendly, the dog is cute (as is the baby) and the terrace/balcony is fantastic. You get to look out over the city, while you enjoy the lovely breakfast in the morning breeze. I slept in the newly renovated aircon room, which... More
