Scattered around strategic locations in the capital, a variety of hostels shelter you from the city while letting you easily access all its major sites!
Located in an old Tirana neighborhood a few minutes from Skanderbeg Square, Trip’n’hostel offers the quintessential hostel experience. The remodeled old Italian-style villa with AC-equipped rooms is surrounded by authentic Albanian restaurants and nightlife is within walking distance. The great communal areas, ping-pong tables, a very reasonably priced bar, and friendly owners make it a great place to spend your time and get to know new people.
Another quintessential hostel experience awaits you at Zig Zag. The friendly owner makes a difference here, as well, as does the gorgeous and relaxed garden of this old villa off of Myslym Shyri St., one of the most iconic, tree-lined streets of the capital. You can sleep in a nicely decorated room or camp out in their beautiful garden! Either way, everyone has a blast at Zig Zag.
Located slightly off the stadium quarter, Andre Hostel has a unique atmosphere that will give you and your roomies plenty to talk about. Most of Tirana’s bars, nightclubs, cafes and restaurants are located around the corner and the city center is within walking distance. For a very visual, distinct experience, this is the one to choose.
Opened in 2010, Milingona Hostel is located near the newly revived Pazari i Ri (New Bazaar) Square, a 10-minute walk from Skanderbeg Square. Nestled in the small roads of this vibrant neighborhood – that packs plenty of bars, cafés, boutique shops and the largest market in the capital – this family-run hostel is a perfect mix of modern and traditional and offers a very warm and welcoming atmosphere.
Albania’s very first hostel, Tirana Backpackers opened as early as 2005 and is located very close to Skanderbeg Square. The rooms in this beautiful, very well-designed old villa are spacious and comfortable. With plenty of common areas to get to know other travelers and a full-service bar, this place can also host large groups of people.
The only hostel in Tirana with a rooftop terrace (and summer rooftop camping!) Hostel Albania is where you go to enjoy the best views of the city without spending too much of your travel budget. Located in the city center, all the main parts of the capital are easily accessible. Here, you’ll find bright, sunlit comfy rooms and all the standard amenities.
The upscale ART Hostel offers three different types of accommodation options to travelers, including common rooms, private rooms, and apartments. Here, you’ll also find female-only dormitories! The atmosphere has a nice contemporary feel to it and a high standard of cleanliness. Though the modern structure is located about 1 km away from the city center, the friendly hostess shows you the most budget-friendly ways to find your way around the capital.
One of the newest hostels in town, is becoming also one of the coolest! The motto of the hostel is “Colorful pieces of a journey – pieces of a dream”, and you’ll understand quickly why this place is becoming so popular: it’s like an intimate home, but at the same time an international gathering place, where you can have the time of your life!
Located about 1 kilometer off Skanderbeg Square, Buff Hostel is a cozy space that is nice for those travelers who love a little distance from the chaos of the city and a more intimate knowledge of the town, away from tourists. Among other more standard services, Buff Hostel offers currency exchange and tennis courts!
Excellent location, sunlit rooms, shared spaces and comfy beds are all it takes to create a refuge when the traveler needs some rest. One of the best places if you want to socialize while in town.
The veranda is simply wonderful, and enjoying the breakfast here will be one of those delicious moments that you’ll want to repeat the whole stay in Tirana. It’s one of the busiest hostels in the city, so if you decide to stay here you better book it now.
About 750 meters from the center but in a great area of the city, the name Sleep & Go says it all. Perfect for independent travelers who likes to store their things, get some sleep and go explore the city. Probably this will be the cleanest hostel you’ve ever been to.
Gelateria Çela, perhaps the most famous ice cream shop in the country, is a requisite stop for all of those who visit Durrës.
