There is a  bus terminal in Berat 1.5km before town.  Most of the time busses arrive in and depart from the terminal.  But every once and awhile busses do arrive in the centre.  Whatever the case, here are the directions.

From the Terminal

When you get off at the BUS TERMINAL, outside the terminal doors you take the city bus (30 lek) that heads into town. (Don’t be confused. They only run one route)

Once you see the river on your right and the old ottoman style houses, get off at the next stop.

Walk back down towards the river and you will see a suspension footbridge over it, cross the footbridge to the neighborhood of Gorica, where the hostel is located.

CROSS THE STREET, walk up the steps directly across from the bridge past ANTIGONI RESTAURANT, and continue up the narrow street for 10 or so minutes.  You will see the sign for the hostel on the right hand side!

By private taxi (~10 min, 500LEK)

ASK the taxi driver to take you to Gorica, “Hotel Scotty” or “English guy”  (If the driver is unsure have him call 069 785 4219)

If you get lost, ask anyone for Hotel Scotty. That’s what the locals call the place.
