It is simply impossible to describe how happy we are after our stay in milingona. Juli, Aqim and Anthony are great hosts and friends to spend time and get to know Tirana and Albania. Dorms are fine, spacious and comfortable (heater was available at our room). It is a great place to stay, and if you are willing to listen you can learn a lot about albanian culture and albanian people. During your stay at mililonga you will quickly become to feel very comfortable and welcomed. I really hope to visit milingona again and talk another nights through. The place is great especially when it is your first stop in Albania and you need someone to guide you through a new country. Staff speaks excellent english. Juli thank you very much for all hospitality. Jam krenar se jam shqiptar.

PS Remember that there is a similarly styled hostel run by the same family hostel in Shkodra "mi casa es tu casa".
