Freddy's Hotel

Reviewed September 29, 2009

Stayed one night in Tirana to visit a friend! Freddy greeted us over the phone at first, because he was offsite... but it worked out just fine. He showed an hour or so later and gave us some nice coffee etc. CLEAN rooms, very safe feeling location, a little tough to find however. Good internet, small hostel overall... but again, clean, cheap, cool Freddy and that's all there is to it. He really is a great guy, works hard to make sure you are happy!

As others have said the hostel is in a great location and is extremely cheap compared to other options, but getting them to understand anything is a nightmare. I was there for 2 nights and barely saw freddy or his wife who are the only members of staff who speak english. The hostel seems to be run by freddy's dad now who will tell you to speak italian if you try to speak to him or just walk away saying 'no problem'. It was absolutely infuriating! Do not get washing done either, it sounds cheap and we were promised it the same day, but it was still wet on the line the next morning when we had to leave and was covered in powder so was dirtier than when I gave it in to get washed. The hostel is a great base to see the city but leave yourself a long time if you want anything from the staff.

Room with air conditioning, in-suite bathroom, free wireless, and t.v. No frills but very clean at a fraction of other hotel prices.

the host is a very approachable and friendly guy, the room was spacious and spotless with a fridge available.
the location was excellent close to Skanderbeg Square and public transport.
if you go to Tirana make sure you go to Mount Datij in the cable car, visit the panorama hotel and restaurant and take in the specatacular views, you can then walk or take one of the courtesy busses that travel between the different restaurants.
best thing about Freddys is the friendly owner.

Freddy's Hostel in Tirana is the best place to stay in this city. Why?
Because The owner Alfred is a wonderful person who will help you in everything for example: show you local restaurants, shops , currency exchange etc. He is very helpful. Rooms are big, most with en suite and air condition-is a must in Tirana. For breakfast you will be served a cup of coffee and a croissant to your room. There is also balcony and Tv. It is very close to central square about 200m. Alfred also can take you to the airport.This is family run business. Great atmosphere is there. Best value/money in Tirana.
