We are Buffalo Backpackers Hostel located in the city center. We have our own house which accommodates up to 26 people. We offer free walking maps, backyard bar and lawn games, fire pit, hammocks, and comfy hang out spots to meet others :)
We are located in a two story white house between the bus station and main boulevard. We can accommodate up to 30 guests at a time. Buffalo has several common areas where you can hang out and meet fellow travelers. We believe that the cleanliness of a hostel and the atmosphere are the two most important aspects. We work hard (and play hard too) to make your stay one of the best ones yet!
Guests have access to the full grounds. In the back garden we have lawn games, a bar, a fire pit, camping spots and hammocks to pass the day. We also have multiple balconies and an indoor common area for guests to use. We have three separate bathrooms and showers that are all accessible for guests.
Interaction with guests
We love to host people. Many guests have quoted to me that it "feels like being at a friends house". We hold this in high regard and hope that you feel just as comfortable at Buffalo!
Other things to note
The hostel is run by a local Kosovar Albanian and a Texan. Together we have drawn on our experiences to create a place where you can learn about the local culture and history of Kosovo while sleeping in comfortable beds and feeling like you have an oasis in Kosovo.

Hello! I am originally from Texas but I moved to Kosovo a little over 5 years ago. For the first three years I ran an NGO working with minority rights in Kosovo. In May 2013, my local business partner and I opened up Buffalo Backpackers Hostel! I love hosting travellers and sharing my passion for Kosovo with them. Before opening the hostel, I hosted many people on couch surfing and realized people love Kosovo when they have the right person to tell them about all of the hidden gems :) I want to be that person for you and make you feel at home instantly in a foreign country!
