“Amazing hostel, great staff and a very friendly atmosphere”
Reviewed 21 August 2013

This hostel is a very nice place to stay in Skopje. There is a comfortable outside terrace and it's generally really chill. The staff is very friendly and helpful. I was very sick when I got there and they gave me hot tea and helped me find medication! It was so kind of them.
I definitely recommend this place!

The owner relies on overbooking to fill another hostel which is 4 km from the town centre (with direct buslines, however), still under construction and along a very busy road. The same happened to at least two other contributors. Book at your own risks.

The hostel itself is really close to the city centre, about 10 minutes by foot. It is situated in a very silent and cozy part of Skopje, so you won't be bothered by any kind of inappropriate sounds. Rooms are very clean, beds are superbly comfortable and the staff of the hostel is really friendly and helpful. For the low price you'll get more than you usually get in other hostels in Skopje.

we weren't in City Hostel for a long time but it was a great experience! rooms are clean, people are very nice and helpful, prices aren't too high! You have a free internet access, a place in the garden to seat and relax, You can always ask for help, it's really great :) I recommend it to everyone!

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.
