ANDREW PERRIE thinks…

"The location of the hostel is great. The host - Tomi and his nephew - is better than any other hostel I've ever stayed in, I've stayed here twice now and he is the reason why. This is how a hostel…"

About SR Backpackers

Situated just 50 meters from the port (ferry service to/from Corfu) and a quick walk from the central bus station, SR Backpackers is not only close to all the major transportation hubs, but it's also a short walk to Saranda's promenade which is lined with bars, discos, and restaurants (be sure to try the famous mussels). As you stroll along the promenade, stop to have a coffee or a shot of raki, and live in the moment as the locals do. Last but not least, Saranda's main beach is just across the street. Grab some homemade byrek (spinach pie) or a tasty treat from the corner bakery on your way. Soak up the sun, rent a paddle boat, or float the day away in the clear refreshing sea.

Accommodation Information

Our hostel is a three bedroom flat, with bunk beds in each room. Al the rooms have a balcony with a sea view. There is a shared bathroom, and common area with a full kitchen. We offer free wifi as well as coffee and tea.

Location Information

We are centrally located for all that Saranda has to offer. We have a beach across the street, and the nightly xhiro (the Albanian summer time stroll) begins at our doorstep. There are great restaurants, bakeries, and grocery stores as wells as a farmers market located only a few minutes away. The central bus station is quick walk and the buses to visit Butrint leave just around the corner from the hostel.

Not sure what Saranda has to offer? Let us help you:

Visit Butrint World Heritage Site, buses leave every hour (from 7 to 6) and the bus stop is 50 meters from the hostel. Stop in Ksamil on the way back and take a swim or paddle boat ride to the islands.

Hike to the 40 Saints Monastery, from which Saranda gets its name

Hike to the Lekursi Castle, which is the best place in Albania to watch the sun set.

Interested in Learning more about Albania? Ask Tomi to teach you some Albanian or tell you about what life was like under the communist regime, all while he cooks you a traditional Albanian dinner.

Take in some cultural, listen to some live Albanian music and watch and maybe even partake in some traditional dancing.

Want to just stay in and enjoy the view from the balcony, ask Tomi about organizing a pizza night, ice cream night etc.

Looking for a place to work out, want to watch a football match, or go to a concert, just ask Tomi.

Albanians are known for their hospitality, but seeing is believing at SR Backpackers.
