HOW TO FIND US BY FOOT:
From Skanderbeg Square walk west, away from the Opera building to Rruga e Kavajes (Kavaja Street). You will pass a mosque on your right and come to a small crossroads. About 50 meters further on, you'll see a sign for Rruga e Bogdaneve on the right, which is our street. The hostel is a two-story house on the left; the name is clearly written on the outside wall.
If coming the airport with the shuttle bus, you'll be dropped off behind the Opera, walk around the building to Skanderbeg Square and follow the above instructions. You can also take a taxi from the airport for 20 euros.
If coming by BUS from a neighboring country or a town in North Albania, you'll be dropped off at the International Bus Station or the North Bus Station on Dritan Hoxha Street, close to Zogu i Zi Square, which basically is a big roundabout. Cross the roundabout and walk into Rruga e Durresit (Durresi Street). After 600 meters turn right on Rruga e Bogdaneve and walk until you are almost at the end of the street. The hostel is on your right and the name is clearly writtenon the outside wall.
If coming by BUS from towns such as Gjirokastra, Himara, Saranda or Durres, you'll be dropped off South Bus Station, which is on Dritan Hoxha Street. As it's further from the hostel than the other two terminals (40 minutes walk to the hostel, via Zogu i Zi Square), we recommend taking either a taxi (500L) or a bus (40L) to Skanderbeg Square. The bus stop is on the left outside the terminal and you can buy a ticket on the bus.
HOW TO FIND US BY CAR:
Skanderbeg Square drive down Rruga e Durresit (Durres Street). Rruga e Bogdaneve is the first street on your left after the second set of traffic lights. When you see the Spar supermarket. look for a parking place: we are on the right just past the Spar.
