Pogradec, Albania, is home to the Albanian side of Lake Ohrid, and is the biggest and most interesting town here. Lake Ohrid -- the oldest lake in Europe -- is one of the most popular destinations in the Balkans, and is popular among both locals, package tourists, and those traveling around the Balkans. However, the biggest majority visits the Macedonian side of the lake only. In particular the town of Ohrid, Macedonia, and the resorts nearby have become popular, and few people make it to the Albanian side in Pogradec.

As it's located only eight kilometres from the famous landmark Sveti Naum, Macedonia, and with visa-free access for many nationalities, it is surprising that so few people make it to Pogradec. But times are changing. For a long time Pogradec was a town with little glory, but it's now increasing in popularity. The reason to visit is obviously its location on the beautiful Lake Ohrid, the sandy beaches, and the lively atmosphere on the boulevard. Pogradec is a small town, so all landmarks are in walking distance and walking to the lake from your Pogradec, Albania hostel never takes more than a few minutes, and for this reason, the location of your Pogradec, Albania hostel should not be your biggest concern. Staying in Pogradec is a good place to relax at the lake and explore some of the towns in the region.

Options for a hostel in Pogradec, Albania, are very limited. Since there are only few tourists visiting Pogradec, the limited amount of beds in a hostel in Pogradec, Albania is normally enough for the demand. In summer, however, it is recommended to book in advance if you want to secure a bed in a Pogradec, Albania hostel dorm. Hostels in Pogradec, Albania, may be few, but there are plenty of budget accommodations available. Those have neither dorms nor a hostel vibe, but are a good alternative if you want to have a private room or if your chosen Pogradec, Albania hostel happens to have sold out.
