Tirana Backpacker Hostel
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 20 August 2017

I stayed in the hostel just for one night but I couldn't have been better. Rooms were clean, you have AC in the room, staff was very kind. The breakfast was good and you can sit outside in the garden.
It's a great place to stay!!!

Room Tip: Very good location

After a long trip with our bikes we had stayed a couple at Tirana Backpackers Hostel, relaxed there and enjoyed the city. We also got to know some nice people at the hostel and talked longer with the friendly and eloquent staff about life in Tirana and Alabania. The hostel itself is nice and clean, the breakfast was fine and we could stay outside in the garden with our tent, which was a bit cheaper than staying in a room. We can only recommend this very welcoming Hostel in the centre of Tirana.

For 4 nights I had the pleasure of sleeping in one of the super cheap dorm rooms. There are rooms with air-conditioning but mine was equipped with 2 fan's that were quite loud. The breakfast is included and will get your day started. It's clean, it looks nice and is really close to the center. Now the best thing though, and the reason I'd recommend this place above all others is the people. The owner is really nice and the people that work there are mostly travelers that liked it so much they stayed. When it all comes together it creates a relaxed atmosphere in which you feel welcome in an instant. I did anyway.

We stayed in this hostel for 4 nights in total and we really can't say anything bad about it. The atmosphere is very nice, a simple breakfast is included, dinner is very cheap and the staff is very friendly. Rooms are cosy and clean (at least private rooms are without AC, however). The location couldn't be better, with nice restaurants and cafes right next door. Definitely worth the money!

This is the best hostel in Tirana by far!!! An excellent outdoor area in summer for lazing about in hammocks or on the lounges, with a bar too! Great for solo travellers, you will meet everyone. In winter it is excellent too with an enclosed fireplace in two rooms and in the common room. I have stayed at others and they are no where near as good. The owner Ilir is a great guy and knows everything about Albania including any off the beaten track areas, he is a wealth of knowledge and a super friendly guy.

We've accidentally bumped into this place, and we're just in love with it! The place is really cheap, the people are kind, and it has one of the prettiest backyards I've ever seen. It is a great choice if you're a relaxed, cool person. Everything is so nice and cosy, we'll surely be back soon!
