Great hostel, been in a lot of hostels in Europe and this is definitely one of the best. Great rooms, clean, very relaxed and nice atmosphere, location fine and staff is nice and sometimes go out with guests for a dinner or have a bbq at the hostel. There were also free yoga lessons. The old villa is a great...

I am glad to say that my favourite hostel has not changed! The same friendly hosts, the same charming atmosphere, the same low prices! I recommend this hostel because of its great location, considerable prices and attractive feel.

Hi Militza, thank you for your review. We always try to make it as nice and comfortable as possible for our guests. As you wrote our outside area is huge and peaceful, the breakfast we serve is fresh and healthy. She-Ra the dog is only a few hours per day in the hostel, and it seems you like her too....

Top spot. great night tour with dinner. Plenty of space to chill. Atmosphere is on the money too. It's a great place to get a feel for Tirana, both the city and the people. Breakfast is a winner as well.

I had a pleasure spent in Hostel Albania, two nights. It was really great time. If Tirana is really noisy city, in hostel youll find peaceful atmosphere. Just chillax, with lemon trees around you. The owner is really cool guy who loves postkomunism staff. Rooms are nice, fantastic garden where you can rest, really worth to visit.

This is a good hostel but at the time I was there, most of the guests were quite uninterested in any kind of conversation and hanging out plus there was a huge group of boy scouts which were quite loud in the morning. Everything else was totally cool and fine.

Hostel Albania is a five minute walk from the main square in Tirana, tucked away just past the fruit market and local eateries. The staff are very relaxed and the Hostel is great for those who enjoy spending evenings outside. The draught beer is expensive, for the same price you can buy two 500ml bottles from the nearby store. For...

The bad part... I was there for about 8 days in total. The first 7 or so were fine, no problems but Clause, the owner overbooked the hostel during the high season and blames the staff for the mistakes. Still, it's very inconvenient to the travelers who had already booked and he then he sold the rooms to those paying...

"Your home away from home", how often have you heard that phrase when it came to discribing hostels? Often, I guess. But never before it was so true for me as this time. The location in the garden makes you feel like you come home after a day of exploring the city, sitting on the porch, chatting away. And the...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hostel Albania is perfectly located in one of the oldest parts of Tirana. Our Hostel is the perfect spot to discover Tirana day and night because we are close to everything to see and do in this big city. Close to all bus stations, just a few steps to the biggest open market, not far from the nightlife area in Tirana and surrounded by cafes, restaurants and supermarkets. Hostel Albania is also the first choice if you just like to relax a bit away from the hustle and bustle that this fast and noisy city is famous for. Sitting in our huge garden you won`t feel like you are in Tirana, and the different areas like the oriental lounge, the beach part, BBQ area or the bar will be there to ensure that everyone will find his perfect spot to do whatever you feel like doing. Smoke a Shisha, drink a homemade Raki, put your meat on the fire or pick your own fruits from one of our 25 fruit trees like lemons, oranges, mandarins or pick some grapes that are growing all around the garden. You are welcome...Hostel Albania is also the best choice if you need a base camp from where to discover whole Albania. As we were working as tour guides for different agencies in the past we know everything about what to see and where to go in Albania and we are happy to provide all the information you need to discover this beautiful country. ... more   less

“If you're a light sleeper I would request a room that doesn't look out over the garden, as you may get disturbed by folks on the balcony.”

“Bring a torch in case of power cuts. Plenty of great bars/cafes near the market. If buying things on the market, head round the back for the best deals.”
