We stayed two asnd a half nights at Milingona. Very nice and friendly hostel, that also has a few doubles. As in most places in Albania, owner is very helpful and easy to deal with. Basic breakfast is included in the price.

The people who run this place treat you like family. Give excellent advice, are well connected and make every effort to ensure you enjoy Tirana. Rooms are clean and decorated with interesting furniture. I love JOGA!!! The dog is incredibly cute and good fun to hang out with.

A clean & friendly hostel close to the centre of Tirana. There are shops & restaurants nearby. Buses from other parts of Albania ( e.g Berat, Shkodra ) are a 30 minute walk away.I would happily stay here again.
