SR Backpackers

Rruga Mithat Hoxha Nr 10 Sarandë 7500, Albania


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.

By Ferry: Once you clear customs at the Port of Saranda, exit the customs house and follow the ramp up to the street. Turn right towards the town center and 50 meters on your left is our hostel. You will see a gray and yellow building (# 10). Look for an internet café, and the next dark brown door on your left is the entrance to the hostel. Ring the bell, and we will be at your service. It is less than a minute walk from the port. By bus: When you get off the bus walk down the hill towards the sea. Turn right on Rruga (the street) Abedin Dino (You will see ruins on your right) and keep walking straight. Pass the first intersection and continue on the road until it ends.You will see Raffaisen Bank on your left and a big eucalyptus tree in the middle of the road. You will walk half way around the tree and head straight on to Mitat Hoxha street towards the Port. Walk approximately fifty meters, and you will see a yellow and grey building labeled number 10 on your right. Pass the 'Krepi Star' crepe shop and at the next door (dark brown) ring the bell and we will be at your service!It is about a 6 minute walk! By Car, Bike or Motor Bike: When you enter Saranda make your way to the port, (the word Port is the same in Albanian, if you need to ask for directions). We are located on the same street (Rruga Mitat Hoxha) as the port, yellow and gray building (#10), just look for the internet café. There is street parking right in front of our building.
