“Just awesome.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 August 2014 via mobile

Very cool stuff, great rooms and chill area. Totally Recommend! Its very close to city center, shopping area, bus and train station. Rooms were clean, air condition was fully on since it was 40C outside. Cannot say anything bad about this hostel. We were at Shanti Hostel 2.

For sure the best place to stay while in Skopje! Nice staff, nice people and very welcoming environment! A good place to relax and meet people :) walking distance for every main sightseeings, and very well connected with public transportation to reach further attractions, like Lake Matka and Millrnium Cross... Great value for money

I really liked my stay at Shanti Hostel. The staff was nice, the beds were clean and even had nice curtains, there was free breakfast, a nice terrace to hang out and the hostel was very close to the railway station. I'd go there again.

This hostel is amazing. We spent one night in a 4 bed dorm and 2 nights in a private double room. The dorm was great as the beds have curtains to give you privacy and they have very large lockers for your stuff. We also got free towels and linen. The double room was also really nice and spacious. There is free tea, coffee and juice all day (including milk and sugar!) as well as wifi. The hostel has a really nice vibe with a lovely little common area to meet other travellers. The staff are amazing; super friendly and will help you with anything! Can not recommend this place enough and we would love to stay here again!

I arrived in Skopje at 4am and without a booking, and the guy at Shanti was wonderful -- he let me sleep on a couch and use the wifi, and then checked me in for the following night after breakfast. Felt at home right away. They've got a small but pleasant common area, and a kitchen with a fantastic selection of tea. I liked the curtains around the bunk beds, too. Two suggestions to improve this hostel: get your own maps (the free Skopje city map is huge and unwieldy) and somehow change the staff schedule. About the latter: the staff work 24-hour shifts, which means that a lot of guests only deal with one or at most two staffers during their stay (most people do Skopje quickly). The first guy I met was amazing, and the second was arrogant and kind of off-putting. I was there for two days but people staying a shorter time base their impression of the staff on only one person.

This is quite a nice hostel in a residential area of skopje. The rooms are clean, with some nice touches like curtains on the dorm beds, and the atmosphere is generally quite relaxed and pleasant. It was very easy to find from the bus station and is quite close to the centre of Skopje; it was also very good value considering that breakfast was included in the price (£7 a night). Only small problem was that there was no one at reception when I arrived.

I only stayed here for one night but it was a pleasant stay - really good showers, good kitchen, friendly staff, excellent wifi connection, free towels,huge lockers, good location near the bus station and the close to the centre of town with a supermarket across the road.
