Welcome to Our Hostel!

The narrow alleys of stone, the quiet chatting of neighbors, the thick, twisted grape vines that hang from trellises, the GIRO and the nightly parade of sharply dressed Beratites, the mosques, the Byzantine churches.  After decades of being closed to the western world, you can now witness this quiet city enter the modern world and we can’t think of a place better to enjoy it from than our hostel.

Seven years ago our Scotty came to Berat with a vision: to create a haven for travelers in Albania, a place to come in and share tales from the road, a place to refresh.  Narrow alleys of white stone will lead you to our 250-year-old stone house that peers over Berat from the antique neighborhood Gorica.

Come and have a nice stay with us. We have 20 dorm beds and 5 private double rooms. We also have camping spots available in our garden.

In 2009 we won the Hostel World ‘Best Hostel in Albania’ award.
