Saranda Backpackers Reviews

Tomi is still Tomi and he runs a fine operation.

This is not my first time to stay here. I am very comfortable with the hostel and its location. Everything I might need is not on the surrounding hillsides, but around the malecon right in front of me. It is so nice to get my morning sun on the balcony. Keep up the wonderful work, Jerry

Age 76 | Permanent Traveler on a USA passport

The hostel has great location, clean, great wi-fi, great view

We stayed twice in September. Both times Tomi was fantastic. He greeted us with fruit and even fed the hostel lunch one day. He was very hands on and a fantastic host. The hostel itself is an apartment that has been made into a hostel. Lots of room, nice kitchen, one bathroom (but a small hostel so it was ok) and big balconies on each room overlooking the water. Perfect location. About 10 minute walk from the "bus stop" and you can see the port from the balcony. Not even two minutes. The hostel was spotless. Tomi also knows all the bus times. Which is a great thing because there is not a proper bus station. The beds are comfy and there are lockers. The wi-fi is strong and there is also a computer to use. I would recommend this highly. It would be a five if there were two bathrooms. Thanks Tomi.


Saranda Backpackers Reviews from the Web

Thanks Tommy e Rino :)


Wonderful hosts, lovely place to stay


The lockers are old and dont always lock properly. No curtains on the beds.

No coffee at breakfast.

They will do your laundry, price dependent on how much you need washed - in my case 1.50 for about half a pillow case stuffed of clothes.

Very helpful with info about bus/ferry schedules and what to do in Saranda.


The hostel was amazing! Tommy was really helpful and whenever I had a question he was always there to help me. The location is very convenient because its right next to the port and the beach and its walking distance from all the stores. The hostel is small and quiet. Everyone was really friendly! I would definitely come back to stay at this hostel again.


Thank you Tommi and Rino for a lovely stay! You are so welcoming and helped me when I needed it. I would 100% recommend this hostel.


Best host ever! Tommi was so helpful with everything we needed during our stay. Great location, great free breakfast, great atmosphere. Definitely recommend this hostel to anyone staying in Sarande.


Really good hostel!

Location is great, just in front of the bay which you can see from the terrace.

Personnel is great, nice and helpful!

Rooms and bathrooms are clean !

I totally recommend this hostel! I would come back for sure

No individual plugs on each bed.


Amazing time with Tommy and hes stuff !! Thank you guys for great the attention !!!


a small little hostel which is nice as you get to know everyone. great location right on the beach. and tomi is an ALL TIME hostel host. so helpful. NO PROBLEM


In this place nothing is a problem and there is always a solution to everything. I would definitely recommend staying here! Thanks for the warm welcome and for taking such good care of me :)


Amazing location, Tomi was fabulous and the common room area was a great way to meet people.


Such an amazing experience staying here, the host is so helpful and really looks after you. I will 100% be back to visit again the next time I'm in Saranda!


Perfect. Would definitely stay there again!


A really great vibe and I throughly enjoyed my stay. The town wasnt my favorite place but the hostel was fantastic.


Lovely hostel, Tommi is great and the place feels cosy with a nice lounge area. Definitely recommend


Super friendly staff who introduced me to the other travellers there who were planning an activity!

Amazing location near the port as well.

Only bad thing: I wish you would charge more for the rooms but turn on the AC longer. Only having AC from 10pm-8am really sucks when its super hot in the summer.


I booked just for 3 nights and staying here now for 10 days:

The hostel itself is in a prestigious area! From the balcony you can see the sea and boats by the beach.

Just crossing the street and taking a few stairs, you are already at the beach and the beautiful promenade!

At the surroundings you have everything you need: very affordable restaurants, nice cafes, supermarkets and ATMs.

Constantly cleaning!:)

Tomi the owner/manager makes sure that you are feeling comfortable during your stay!


Tomi was a great host and has a great hostel. Clean, comfy and a fun atmosphere. Took us for a bbq on the beach, sorts out everything for you in terms of trips and is always available. Top guy, will be back.


Best experience in my whole trip! The barbecue they prepared for us was awesome!

Thanks, Tomi and Rino.


I had a great time at Saranda Backpackers! Perfect location right by the beach, good doorms, great vibe! Tomi and Rino were both super nice and helpful! Would absolutely recommend!
