Stone City Hostel

Top choice hostel in Gjirokastra
Image by

This hostel is a fantastic conversion of an Old Town house, created and run by Dutchman Walter. The attention to detail and respect for traditional craftswork is extremely heartening, with beautiful carved wooden panels in all the rooms. Choose between the dorm rooms with custom-made bunks or a double room, all of which share spotless communal facilities.

Walter is passionate about Gjirokastra and the surrounding region, and can offer all kinds of tours and excursions. There's an enticing terrace and garden, as well as some extraordinary views towards the town's iconic castle.
