The location is in a building at 8th floor and very close to the sea; this means basically one thing: great view and unforgettable sunsets! The manager is very nice and the staff too. Breakfast is included in the price; clean rooms and toilets. On their web site they accurately indicate how to get to the Hostel and how individuate... More

We met great people, and spent one day on the beach that you see from the hostels balcony. Would recommend this hostel if you want to met other travellers. My only remark was... More

Felt so much more like a home than a hostel! Klardi is a wonderful person, full of local & Albanian knowledge & couldn't do enough to help! The view is incredible & being greeted with pancakes after a long bus ride was a perfect touch. Absolutely recommend this hostel!

I had a perfect stay at the Hairy Lemon Hostel. The location is super! Every Morning i woke up with a new sea breath, a view of the sea and the smell of fresh homemade pancakes. Klardi, the Hostel Manager, is the perfect host, very caring and will do everything that his guests have a pleasant stay. The Hairy Lemon... More

"Are you hungry? I can make you some pancakes..." This was one of the first sentences I heard when I entered the Hairy Lemon. But the Hairy Lemon has more to offer than just pancakes: it is situated in a 3 bedroom appartment so there are max 18 guests which gives the place a cozy atmosphere. If you're sick of... More

a little hard to find but super cosy inside with a nice balcony with view of sea and cool breeze - very important! One big appartment, so not too big and busy, hosts were very friendly and helpful, plus free breakfast and tea/coffee all day.

This hostel has an amazing vibe created by Klardi and Carla. Free pancake breakfasts, fantastic view from the balcony,1 minute from the beach; the owners are so genuinely caring and helpful that no one wants to leave once they have checked in. our group booked for 2 and stayed for 5 !

The hostel was super clean, surprisingly cool with a great view. The host Klardi was wonderful, was able to tell us heaps of things to do, was super friendly and somehow the whole place felt like big family. Pancake breakfast was awesome too. We are sad to leave.
