Description Tirana Backpacker
- When we opened the doors of this place in 2005, it was the first hostel in the whole Albania. What started as an experiment at that time by three young people now is a well established hostel welcoming thousands of backpackers every year.It is a small hostel, with just 25 beds, situated in a beautiful villa built in 1940, one of the finest buildings in the whole area. Dorms are spacious and well lighted, the wide back garden creates an island-like atmosphere comparing to the vitality and unavoidable chaos of the city outside our gates. A sense of community and lots of common spaces is a distinctive feature and what we had in mind when we created this place.Internet access, well-equipped kitchen, laundry are among the most requested services we offer for our guests. During the warm months we transform our cool cellar in a movie theater and bar.Most important of all, our friendly young crew will give you a lot of useful information about places to see and transport tips around Albania and further. It is quite common that people visiting Tirana and staying in hotels pass by our hostel to take info and advices using it as a tourist information office.Our location is great, a 5 minutes walk to the center of the action, Blloku, the nightlife heart of Tirana. Three pubs, several bars and restaurants, ATMs, exchange and Western Union offices, as well as different Embassies are spread around the hostel in a 100-200 meters distance. The central Scanderbeg Square with some of the main attractions of Tirana is just an easy walk away.You can find more at tiranahostel.com, come and meet us and have a nice stay in Tirana.
