“great place and excellent customer service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2014

first time in Albania and this place was fantastic. Freddy the owner is very friendly and kind and welcomed me in a very hospitable way. All of the staff here were great and very friendly! The rooms are very clean with excellent maid service. They also supply free breakfast which was a added bonus. The location of the hostell is perfect, a very short walk to the center of Tirana and close to all shopping and grocery stores. The price and all features here are great and I would defianatly recomend to other travellers.

Freddy's is a great place for the cost. We found our room very clean, the staff friendly, and the breakfast simple yet fresh and filling (fresh vegetables, cheese, eggs, seasonal fruit, fresh baked rolls, strong coffee). A two minute walk to the main bus drop-off and National Museum. The staff upgraded us to a bigger room with a computer inside the room for no extra price because it was available. Wi-fi in the room worked great. Don't be confused by the "Bujtina Shqiptare" around the corner which tries to pass itself off as "Freddy's." This one is the real one and is cleaner, friendlier, and offers breakfast.

Room Tip: There's a room with 2 twin beds and 1 double with a computer in the room! Nice privacy blinds ke...

What a great place! I would highly recommend Freddy's to anyone wanting to stay in Tirana. It is more like a basic hotel than a hostel. The rooms have private ensure bathrooms and TVs. The breakfast in the morning is great and the service was great. We stayed in a double room (€25 per night) but when we arrived were given a double with an extra bed meaning we had a bit more space.

The best pat is that the rooms are serviced daily! While we were out, our bathroom was properly cleaned and out towels replaced with fresh ones. I have never seen a hostel anyway provide this service.

Freddy was extremely helpful as were all the other staff. On our day of departure, we booked a transfer to the airport for €20 (same price as taxi) and it was Freddy himself who was there early in the morning to take us to the airport. Very easy and a great service offered by them.

Do stay with Freddy and the team - you will be glad that you chose them. Forgot to say, location is awesome.

Freddy's hostel is a great place to stay in Tirana. It is very close to the city center, only 500 m to the main square. The rooms are big, comfortable and clean; each bedroom has a tv and refrigerator. There is also free wifi. Breakfasts are included, and they are also very good: eggs, fresh fruits, pastries... The best of all is the service; the people who work there are incredibly helpful.

Its more than a hostel.Freddy offers small but functional and modern rooms for the travellers who want to be close to where the action is: 3 min walking to the center of Tirana, historical Skanderberg square with its impressive 3m's, the monument, the museum and the mosque! within 100 meters from Freddy's you will find the bakery, the grocery store, a place selling very good Albanian red wine etc. Also there is many bars and a taverna with grilled meat almost opposite the hostel.
And I even had my haircut there, just around the corner from the Freddy's.
Breakfast is normally included with chocolate croissants, fresh coffee from the machine Italian style, and omelets. also included in the roomprice is wifi and some rooms even have their own computers.satelite tv as well. I can highly recommend this hostel, its certainly worth the splurge!

It's more like a hotel turned into seperate dorms. Imagine a hotel room with 3 seperate beds inside. I stayed there when everything else was booked and they gave me a room not central to their main location. Room was very clean and I had it to myself so I guess it's like having your own hotel room which was nice if that is what you are looking for. TV didn't work which was fine with me but what bothered me was the manager came in FOUR times, without knocking before the 11AM checkout time to tell me that checkout time was 11AM or to ask if I wanted to stay another day. This happened about every half hour starting at 9AM. Basically, I didn't get to sleep in much even though I had an alarm set for 10:50AM to make sure I could checkout on time.

If you're going to stay here, help them understand you know the checkout time and not to bother you if you plan on sleeping in.

Room Tip: If you are 2 or 3 travelers or want a room to yourself you can probably get one by picking one of th...
