Located just 50 meters from the port (ferry service to/from Corfu) and a quick walk from the central bus station. Saranda Backpackers, Tomi's Hostel is not only close to all the major transportation hubs, but it's also a short walk to the 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, the main beach is in front of the hostel. 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.

Tomi, the proprietor is a native to Saranda and speaks fluent English, Italian, and Greek. He is at your disposal 24/7 and can give you an insider's view of Saranda and the history of his homeland. Tomi can recommend cheap traditional restaurants as well as arrange tours, help navigate your next destination, and point out all of the nearby hot spots including: The Blue Eye, The Castle of Lekursi, Butrint, and Ksamil. Want to see the historical treasures of Butrint or the pristine beaches of Ksamil on your own? Walk around the corner and catch the city bus, it leaves every hour (from 7am to 6pm) and the bus stop is only 50 meters from the hostel. Stop in Ksamil on the way back and take a swim or paddle boat ride to the islands.
