Ana, it's one of the poorest nations in eastern Europe so there are a few issues with health, hygiene and infrastructure.... but nothing that poses an imminent threat to your safety (as long as you're careful).
Have a look at the worldnomads.com advice for Albania, it'll give you a better idea. Sounds like a fascinating place with much yet to be discovered (or developed!).
