We stayed in Urban Hostel for couple of nights - one night in the twin room, and another night in one of their apartments.
Well, it's a hostel - in all aspects that comes with it: the most friendly staff (which is there 24/7 and has great knowledge), nice communal areas including small but well-equipped kitchen for the guests' use, and a dull breakfast served on your own. I think I've also seen that they provide free bikes, though we didn't use it.
The twin room was pretty small but clean and had all we needed -but definitely felt like a 'hostel twin room' and not a 'hotel twin room'. The apartment was extremely spacious, with a nice bedroom, large living room with sofa, small dining table and a good kitchenette.
The most problematic issue of this place is the location. Whereas the are itself felt very safe, also at night, it's still a bit far from the center (~15-20 minutes walk to the main square). Nevertheless, it is well connected with public transportation (note that it can be difficult to identify the right station to get off while you're on the bus, and usually you don't have any helpful sign). Additionally - there are many restaurants and cafes nearby (about 5 minutes walk).
Overall - it's a good value place to choose in Skopje, as long as you're fine with its location.
