Voted Best Hostel In Albania 2012 from Hostelworld reviewers. We are the first and only authentic Backpackers hostel in Berat. The house is a UNESCO protected building with traditional features set in a beautiful location, in the historic Gorica quater of Berat. Come and relax and enjoy the unique atmosphere of the stylish house and chill out in the large garden with fruit trees.

It's the perfect place to stay when visiting the beautiful city of Berat which has just been awarded UNESCO status.

Prices are per person per night.

There is a new bus station terminal in Berat 1.5km before you enter town.

By city bus (~20 min, 30LEK)

When you get off the bus at the station enter the orange city bus (30 lek) heading into town.
Get off the bus on the 4th stop next to a small park. There is a green cigarette kiosk and and red/yellow pizzeria by the stop.
Continue walking forward on the same side of the street 150km. You will arrive to an old stone bridge. Take this bridge across the river into Gorica Quarter.
While crossing the footbridge, you will see a large sign ahead reading “Castle Park Hotel”. There is a path uphill just bearing left of the sign. Continue up the winding path while always remaining uphill (right, then sharp left). After a brief 3 minute trek the path will level out and you will see a sign reading precisely, “Berat Backpackers” to the left.

Ask the taxi driver to take you to Gorica / “Hotel Scotty” / “English guy (If the driver is unsure have him call 0697854219)

If the bus continues into town ask to be dropped at hotel Palma cross the bridge walk up the hill past Antigoni restaurant and the hostel is on the left hand side 5 mins along the road.


(If you get lost, ask anyone for Hotel Scotty. That’s what the locals call the place.)
