Check-In and Check Out: The average check-in time is from 15:00 (3pm), while the Check Out time is before 11:00 (11am). Hostels usually offer luggage storage in case you arrive earlier or leave later. Make sure you check if luggage storage is free or if there is an extra cost.
This was actually the first hostel to open in Tirana back in 2005, set inside a stunning 100 year old Italian style villa.
Once again you will not be stepping in to a modern, bland accommodation – far from it! – but a colourful, cosy and vibrant hostel.
“Our backyard attracts guests all day and night where you will find lots of mandarin and orange trees, hammocks, sofas and instruments around!”
For sure the coolest part about Tirana is the backyard, and it’s an ideal spot to hang out at all times of the day watching people come and go, socialising and relaxing.
Yet, there are more perks to mention:
Indoor & outdoor common areas
Fully equipped kitchen & dining room
Not only that but this hostel throws in a free breakfast and also offers a scrumptious healthy, vegetarian dinner for a few extra coins.
This place has done so well to create a community of like-minded individuals that will be difficult to resist!
Alongside the 4 and 6-bed mixed dorms, there is also a couple of single and double private rooms available. One of the double rooms even comes with a private bathroom.
Location: In the heart of Tirana, 500m from Skanderbeg Square and 5km from Dajti Ekspres Cable Car. The area is popular for cycling, and car hire is available at the hostel. Tirana International Mother Teresa Airport is 15km from the hostel.
What do we love most about Buff Hostel? The dorm rooms!
“Buff hostel is a quiet place where you can pause and recharge for your next destination.”
Spread over three floors, Buff consists of a range of room types from double private room wit balconies to 6-bed dorms with gorgeous design.
There is a community kitchen and dining area and a modest patio to sit on. Otherwise, the bedrooms take up most of the property so this really is the kind of thostel to choose if you’re just passing through.
It is located within an easy walking distance from the main square.
