After all the hype about this place we thought it was going to be a great hostel.....what a let down! When we stayed there they had over booked by about 10 people so people were scattered everywhere including kitchen and balconies which made it quite hard to walk around in mornings and also night. Also due to so many people being overbooked the 2 bathrooms were used by 30 people! So you pretty much had to line up for them and no hot water or water pressure ever.
There is also no privacy as people walk through your room all day and night to get to the balcony or bathroom, very weird setup! So the bedrooms are pretty much used as hallways. The owner seemed quite rude and always chocked our door open even though it was obvious everyone was sleeping.
The free breakfast was jst pancakes which would been awesome if they weren't a weird mix of wholemeal, cinnamon and gooeyness. They don't taste anything like normal white fluffy pancakes. Overall the experience here was quite disappointing and I would definitely recommend the other hostel in saranda.
