On a cycling trip through this area of the world and needed a cheap place to stay. The people there were incredibly friendly and genuine. Met some interesting people with great stories of adventure and helpful hints for my travels to come. They have two dogs and a cat who are adorable. The internet is good. Fresh food stores nearby...

I stayed one night at the 4 bedroom dormitory and the second night at the deluxe suit. The delux suit is amazing and if you wanna... More

We had a reservation for one night only, but arrived around 21:00 the night before and hoped they would have space for us. The owners were so kind and accommodating and were able to find space for us. They were also helpful with a map and shopping and restaurant recommendations. Our first night was in a large room with several... More

We are glad we stayed here, the owners were thoughtful and friendly. Pros: The 40 Euro room is something a bit out of ordinary - full of knick knacks and interesting furniture. Friendly and helpful owners - made us a sandwich to take because they knew we were leaving super early. A nice touch! It's a nice place to come... More

The house is lovely and everything is made for you to feel like home. Alma and her daughter are super nice and will help you organize your trip in the mountains and give you useful advices. By far the nicest people we´ve met in Albania! And even though the atmosphere is laid back, it is very quiet.

Great hotel in Shkodra. Located about a 10 min walk (if that!) from bus stations and main pedestrian area. We stayed in both the private room and dorm room and we're happy with both. All staff were brilliant and knowledgeable about the area. The hostel organised nightly outings such as visiting a cocktail bar or a museum. We spent our... More
