“problem with the reservation”
Reviewed 3 August 2013

We have booked a private room in here...but unfortunately they made some mistake in the reservation and when we arrived there the hostel was full.
We have booked this hostel because in very close to the city center. The hostel looks nice, nice living room, nice terrace nice staff/owners. The toilets from the ground floor were not so nice,and a little dirty in the toilet. Anyway above all...for the price you pay it is very good what you can get.
Considering our problem with the reservation....the owner offered us another hostel (far from the city center, about 3-4 km) and we let at City hostel our things until late in the night, after that the owner offered us a free ride to the other hostel outside of the city.The other hostel was cheaper.
I think this hostel is a very good option if you visit Skopje. It is no more that 10 minutes from the city center. Just be careful to reconfirm your booking before the arrival.

My two sons and me stayed just for a night on our way by car towards Greece.
Very kind staff, calm suburban location, car was parked on the street in front of the hostel, seemed safe enough. The room was clean regarding expectations, the shared bathroom was in barely tolerable condition, as well as the shared kitchen. A friendly advice - would really help if the owners get some ideas of standards and travellers expectations for a modern hostel. We really hope they upgrade, since we liked the location, the staff, and the price :)

Room Tip: At the ground floor we did not dare to leave the door to the backyard open, seemed more like a aband...

The least pleasant place we stayed on our Balkans trip. Filthy living space and bathrooms - really disgusting. Building work was being done during the day, which we weren't told about - if we had wanted to spend any time in the hostel during the day it would have been very disruptive. Extremely thin wall (plywood?) between the 4 bed dorm and the kitchen area so you can hear everything. Mattresses very uncomfortable due to being so old. Location poor, have to walk along main roads to get into town. We left early and were glad to get out.

I really can't complain from anything in the hostel! I feel I paid too little for what I got - comfortable bed, quite the breakfast, quiet room, as the hostel is on a quiet street, and a great host. Not only did he help us with what we needed, but he was offering his help even when we didn't ask for it. The room was clean, the shower was fine, and the rooms were really warm.
The hostel is a 15-minute-walk from the city center, or 1.5 euros by taxi.
The perfect place to stay, especially if you're travelling by car - you can be sure you have somewhere to park it.

Although hotel is located in the residential area it's very close either to the city center (15 mins walk) or to the bus station (20 mins walk). Rooms are very basic, with very low bunk beds and mattresses have broken springs. Bathroom could be cleaner. The biggest advantage is Bobby the owner, he will explain you everything and treat with rakija strong as rocket fuel.
