About Us

Welcome to Milingona City Center. We are a small family-run hostel in operation since 2010 and would love you to be part of our family.

Our home is a charming villa described by our guests as an oasis in the centre of Tirana. We strive to provide a secure, ‘home away from home’ feeling which many of our travelling family return for.

We offer quirky modern rooms, utilities and plenty of common spaces to meet fellow travelers or relax. We also have a free delicious breakfast and craft beer or home-made Raki for you to enjoy in the sunny courtyard.

Tirana has a lot to offer travelers and we are within walking distance of the city centre. Here you can find the National History Museum, the National Art Gallery, the National Theatre, Opera Hall, City Hall, the Pyramid and Tirana's oldest Mosque, Ethem Beu.
You’ll also find Blloku district, harbouring all the live music, funky cafes and rumbling clubs. Tirana is a hub of music and entertainment, so don't be surprised to hear of gigs happening at our hostel or nearby.


Our staff can provide directions and local information including where to eat, get coffee, how to get to the bus stations or International Airport and organize a taxi.​

Milingona is ideal for anybody looking for a warm, friendly place to stay. We try to foster a family atmosphere and encourage relaxation, communion and peace.

We’re so excited to welcome you to Albania and our hostel in the heart of Tirana!
