Hier bezahlt man das Alter des Gebäudes einfach mit. So ist auch das Inventar. Wir haben in Albanien schon besser für viel weniger Geld geschlafen, inkl. Frühstück.

Das Hostel befindet sich in einer super Lage und wirkt sehr einladend. Der Gartenbereich ist auch schön gestaltet und man hat auch die Möglichkeit Tischtennis zu spielen. Bei Fragen wurde immer versucht uns bestmöglich zu helfen. Die Zimmer waren sauber, allerdings etwas älter.

Das Hostel ist sehr zentral und wunderschön, mit einem verwunschnen Garten, vielen Sitzmöglichkeiten und einer tollen Aussicht über Berat. Das Personal war sehr zuvorkommend und freundlich.

Bonne situation et le lieu offre des espaces communs sympathiques. La propreté laisse à désirer. Certainement victimes de leur succès et de la forte affluence. Le site indique la possibilité de camper. Nous avons choisi cette option, mais il n’y a pas véritablement d’emplacement. Vous plantez votre tente à 3 mètres de la table de Ping-pong à proximité des terrasses. L’auberge étant très fréquentée par de jeunes voyageur.euses qui festoient jusque tard dans la nuit (2:30) nous avons passé une nuit horrible!!! Nous aurions aimé être avertis !!! Nous avions réservé une chambre pour la nuit suivante, mais nous avons vite déguerpi ….

Randonnée incontournable Très belle expérience que je vous recommande. La visite des canyons est magnifique. Un grand merci aux guides qui nous ont pris en photo pendant l’entièreté de la randonné. Les guides sont chaleureux et permettent une bonne ambiance au sein du groupe. Un repas est proposé le midi dans un restaurant traditionnel. C’est un moment convivial qui vaut le coup. Nous avons ensuite été nous baigner dans une magnifique cascade. Malgré le temps (pluie), nous avons passé un très beau moment et cela est sans doutes un de mes moments préférés. Pour conseil, prenez vos places directement sur place; vous payerez moins chers.

Canyoning L’activité canyoning était vraiment incroyable, magnifiques paysages et guide vraiment génial. Notre meilleure souvenirs était sûrement la dernière cascade où nous avons pu sauter dans l’eau froide ( pensez à prendre des basket). Le canyon est vraiment exceptionnel, les photos du guide permettent un super souvenirs, très belle organisation ! Et le repas vraiment génial pour finir la journée ;)

Unforgettable experience in Berat! My recent visit to Berat Canyon was absolutely breathtaking! The towering rock walls and crystal-clear waters created a stunning backdrop that exceeded all expectations. It was one of the most amazing experiences me and my friends did in Albania. Miri, our guide, was exceptional. His knowledge of the area and passion for nature made the hike incredibly enjoyable. He led us through hidden trails and breathtaking viewpoints, ensuring we felt safe and welcomed throughout. Thanks to Miri, this was an experience I'll cherish forever. Thank you again for making our adventure so memorable!

Faleminderit Miri 👐🏽 This canyon is one of the most beautiful spots I’ve ever seen, and the hike is so much fun! We were driving through the beautiful landscapes of mount Tomorr before getting to the canyon and I was already in awe. Then after lunch we started the route and it was both adventurous and relaxing. Really an amazing experience! Totally recommend it :)

Must do! The canyon tour was absolutely amazing, especially thanks to the great guides that made the whole experience very fun. The spots that I saw with them left me breathless. Moreover, I really enjoyed the minutes of silence during the "be water" flotation that made me feel connected with the nature in a very special way. Thank you guys <3

Highly recommend it! Awesome experience! I didn't really know what to expect but my expectations were certainly surpassed! Floating down the river was such an awesome and unique way to experience the canyon. I loved that the instructors encouraged everyone to be quiet for a stretch of it, as it gave us a chance to really 'be in nature' which was incredibly calming and added to the beauty of it all. The canyon itself is incredible and the instructors take plenty of photos and videos for you of both yourself and the views, so you don't have to think about anything but floating. The jumps are fun too but do be careful and listen to where the instructors tell you to jump as a couple people did hurt themselves, including my partner who just jumped a bit too far to one side.

Happy and relaxing day We had the best day on this trip! Miri was a great guide and made us all laugh and have fun, he also took loads of great photos of the day so we didn't have to worry about taking our phones with us and could really be 'in the moment' during the experience and still get some beautiful memories. We went to the waterfall first and then had a lovely lunch. Then we got the gear and headed to the canyon. We spent about 2 hours floating down the canyon and my fave part was when Miri wanted us to 'be water.' it was a really relaxing and beautiful time. Thank you Miri!!! From Shona & Kyri.

We went down the canyon and floated/walked down it Best experience so far in Albania! The views are amazing, lunch included and a good price for what you get. I loved being in the actual canyon and floating down it! One in a lifetime experience

Excellent, to do again without hesitation The canyon and waterfall excursion is excellent. The place is magnificent, it almost feels like you're on another continent. Albania is a country full of surprises. The included meal is balanced and delicious. The guide is super friendly and fun, everything is balanced, you don’t see the day go by, it’s a real treat. I recommend without hesitation and if I had to do it again, I would do it with great pleasure! Included: transport, guide, meal, waterfall + canyon, canyon equipment In terms of value for money, you can't find better Thank you very much ☺️
