5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Definitely one of the nicest hostels I've ever stayed at. Fantastic view of the sea and the manager, Klardi, is so helpful and friendly. I planned to stay 3 nights but ended up staying 5 nights! I could have easily stayed for weeks! I will definitely come back.

We stayed at the hairy lemon in sarande for 4 nights and had the most amazing time. The staff are wonderful, and Klardi, the manager is perhaps the nicest most genuine guy you are ever likely to meet. It is so comfortable there we never wanted to leave. It is the best place for resting your weary self when travelling.... More

Great view, friendly staff, Great location, fantastic view overlooking the beach. 2 minutes from beach. The hostel is in a block of flats which is not expected, has shared balconies which have a really awesome view. Pancakes in the morning, all in all a very pleasant experience.

A clean, well organized, helpful establishment. Made to feel welcome by staff. However the hostel is difficult to find without their map. Trying to find with just lonely planet is tricky but not impossible

After walking around for some time we finally met a really friendly host waving us up to the hostel. When we came up to the hostel we got really good pancakes for breakfast. The host showed us around and showed us places that we should be visiting around the City while we were visiting Albania. We had a very nice... More

This hostel just a tad difficult to find. We were in a not-so-great mood when we arrived, having driven quite some ways and feeling tired; however, our lovely host immediately organized us and helped us find parking. She even walked us to the parking lot and explained to us how to get back to our car and back to the... More

Set on the 8th floor of an apartment block - it really is just an apartment with bunk beds in the rooms. Breakfast pancakes are included in the price which is much better than you get in most places. The staff were all really friendly and couldn't have been more keen to help where required. Little extras like snorkels to... More

Firstly interesting location , top floor of an apartment building but don't let that put you off. The guys there are really accommodation organised a night at one of the local beach bars which was a good crack. Rooms clean interesting triple bunks though and could do with a few more power sources! WiFi was free and the bathrooms were... More

This is such a great hostel, the hosts Mika and Gabriel are so relaxed and welcoming, nothing is a problem. One of the friendliest hostels i have ever stayed in. Great location, amazing view, good wifi, book exchange, free pancake breakfast and lots of information about getting around. Clean and great social area and balcony.
