The staff is the best I encountered in Albania. Very friendly and helpful. The location is excellent. Very close to the city castle and with a good view of the other side of the river.
The bathroom could be a little warmer during winter.
Overall, I highly recommend this hostel. I stayed for two nights and the hostel manager was extremely welcoming and hospitable - providing advice on my stay in Berat, walking me to the start of the route for the castle - and where to catch the onward bus. The breakfast was a high standard - and I was provided many extra teas and traditional coffees in the evenings. The bed was also very comfortable - and the hostel is in a traditional building right in the historic area. Considering the price, it was extremely good value for money.
Location was amazing
Owner is very friendly and helpful. Location is in the center, you can go to anywhere.
Friendly guy with good English treated me like VIP, making me Turkish coffee and taking me to a cheap Albanian restaurant nearby. Bedroom was spacious with great view and 2 chairs.
