The Hostel in Shkodra, the place to stay

The hostel is located in an old house in the center of Shkodër. The house is over 100 years old and was built by an Italian ancestor of the owners who moved to Albania who made it their family home. It has the form of the traditional home of the city: it has two floors, a large main entrance, many windows on the first floor, stone walls, a garden with fruit trees.

We have used old furniture of the family and friends to furnish the house. We've dedicated the hostel especially to travelers that enjoy hiking, biking, and mountaineering, but it is open to all who simply love life, nature, human contact, bioeating, and special tours.

Our place is absolutely the best to relax, recover, have fun, stay safe, and learn new things while in Shkodër.

We are located in the center of the city. Find Kinema Milenium, we are located on the other side of the street down a short alley. Look for the gate painted bright blue with the words "Mi Casa es Tu Casa"

Remember: You always should ask for 'Kinema Milenium' wherever you are in the city.
