The common area looks nice and is very welcoming. The kitchen spacious but surprisingly no spoons to find... and closes down at some hours. So when you have an early departure at 7 am, you can't use the kitchen to prepare breakfast.
The batchroom is tiny tiny, can hardly move. Wifi signal is very weak.
In the dorm there are 3 beds above each other, which leaves little place to squeeze you between your own bed and the one on top of you.
I went there to attend the Tirana festival. First I didn't get an answer to my emails in 2 months, after a call I got the wrong information and finally I'd been written that they made a transfer reservation for me at an agency. Although when I arrived at the agency they didn't know anything about my reservation...
The hostal had charged me too much, had choosen one of the more expensive agencies and on top of that it's sooo easy to organise it independently. Why didn't they tell me that at the first place, which was my initial question. Really unprofessional!
