This is a simple guest house with basic common bath and no AC. I am writing this to make sure you know what to expect. That being said, the yard is lovely, dinner was cooked from the yard's "crop", Florian is very passionate about Albanian History and can arrange all you need for a trip into the mountains (don't miss...

This family run hostel is a unique opportunity to experience the hospitality of the Albanian people. We had a great time staying there, with good and healthy homemade meals. Florian took us to the Mes bridge and showed us part of the city. Further he advised us where to go next. we send our warm thanks to Florian and his... More

We actually met Florian accidentaly on the old Mes bridge, he invited us to dinner (it was our anniversary nigth, so we decided - why not) and we went. The meal was absolutely fantastic, everything fresh and grown in his own garden, even the pork - pig was slaughtered that exact morning. Florian treated us as old friends, he had... More

Quiet place, parking inside, nice garden... BUT : Treatment as vulgar customer (if you just want to drink water and not buy his beverages you surely have to ask several times). Same speech, formated and oriented for each guest (if you arrive first you will have the same speech every new arrival). Prices are not the same as expected on... More

We were honnesly looking forwards to going and extended our stay in shkoder for that. But the hostel is so far from the city. As soon as we arrived we found florian a bit aggressive. He made comments about which type of traveler he liked and didn't like (don't go if you're french!). And inappropriate jokes at diner which he... More

I had a great time staying with Florian and his family, my only regret is that I didn't have more time here to really explore the area around Shkodra. The meal and tour that I was offered was great and very reasonably priced and in general Florian's place is very chilled out. Definitely worth going to the effort of visiting... More
