Best accommodation in Albania

Accommodation is surprisingly plentiful for a country with such low tourist numbers, and while state-owned monstrosities were once the norm, there's now a decent selection of clean, good-value hotels. You should be able to find a double room for under €35 (prices are almost always quoted in euros), and breakfast is usually included. There are not usually any set rates for single rooms, but you can expect a small discount. During summer, it's advised to book ahead for private rooms on the coast. There are now hostels in Tirana, Saranda, Berati and Gjirokastra, charging €10–14 for dorm beds ; all have free wi-fi. There are very few dedicated campsites, though the secluded beaches of the Ionian coast are great for those who can manage without facilities. Wild camping is fine in theory, but leaves you at the mercy of the (occasionally corrupt) local police.
