This is a good backpackers hostel if backpacking is your thing. You have everything you need and there is a cool and fun garden Cafe in the back to hang out in with some games. The bathroom is not the best, but if you don't mind that then this is a pretty cool place.

Stayed here with a backpacking class. 12 of us. No problems with getting rooms as they had rooms for 7 people. Location is OK, with close proximity to local shops and markets. Bathrooms are not private though. One bathroom with 3 toilets and 3 showers for everyone in the hostel. The back garden was amazing though as it gave a...

Ok, this is a bit double... The staff is friendly and even when very tired helpful. The location is also really nice, 5 min away from the central square and bus stop for the AirPort. They also offer a good and healthy breakfast and the bathroom is quite ok (although it becomes busy in the morning). There is also a...

Really nice place for backpackers. The hostel is beautiful and artistic. It's a place to hang out and chill - a small oasis. The owner is really forthcomming and very driven. It is close to the Hemingway Bar which is nice.

I phoned Tirana backpackers at 9pm the night before I arrived in Tirana (at 4am) and they didn't have any beds so they said I could stay on their sofa in the backyard, which was extremely kind of them. The hostel is really edgy and alternative, which I loved. It has awesome murals and art decorating almost every well. Breakfast...
