Hi Skopje Hostel
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 13 November 2013

Fantastic place with great staff (both David and his colleague). Warm welcome, great knowledge and advices about Macedonia and Skopje. Hostel is situated in quiet, residential area about 15 minutes walk from city centre, everything is clean and nice. Hostel has big and nice garden! I can't wait to visit Hi Skopje and Skopje itself in the future.

This hostel is fantastic, one of the best I've been in. It's super clean and new, the staff are all really nice, the internet is fast and stable, there's a nice common room, the kitchen is clean and fully stocked and there's two supermarkets close by. The only downside is that it's a little bit further from the centre than other hostels but taxis are so cheap (or you can walk) that it doesn't matter.

As soon as we arrived we were given a very warm welcome by the lady on the front desk (I'm not going to be able to spell her name correctly but she's a writer and an expert in Macedonian literature!!) who was very helpful and answered our many questions about Skopje and the surrounding area.

Brilliant and very large room with a really comfortable bed! We slept so well that we woke up really late almost every day! When we did get out of bed, we discovered what Skopje had to offer and were very impressed.

Skopje is, without a doubt, one of the most unique cities I have ever visited. The central square definitely makes an impact! Lots of bright, bold and colourful statues and some really interesting architecture. So much to see and do. Skopje Museum (the old rail station) is fascinating and we were very lucky to meet an amazing tour guide who we spoke to for nearly two hours!!!

Would definitely recommend a day out to Canyon Matka which has some superb walks and views. A visit to the Millennium Cross is also worth doing and the Holocaust Museum offers a fascinating but sobering insight into what happened to the Jewish population of Skopje and Macedonia.

Finally, we had some lovely evenings chilling out in the garden finding out more about Skopje from the hosts. We also got to meet the extremely cute Gille (probably spelt incorrectly) a very friendly golden retriever who visits the garden every now and again!

All in all a great stay. Thanks for everything guys!

We stayed in Hi Hostel Skopje for just one night, but absolutely loved it and wished we were able to stay longer. The dorms are very spacious and clean, with a locker for each person. The bathrooms were nice and the kitchen facilities great also. There is a nice living area and a garden outside with hammocks and chairs to sit around, which creates an ideal opportunity for making friends and chatting with people. Breakfast in a morning is a pastry with jam inside and plenty of free tea and coffee. Staff are friendly and helpful, and gave us plenty of information. They also offered to store our bags for the 4 days we were travelling to Ohrid even though we had stayed for just the one night. If we return to Skopje, we will definitely return here.

The hostel is placed 10-15 minutes walking to the center, in a very secure area, so you can definitely go to the center on foot either during the day or the night . The house, as well as the courtyard, are really nice, which makes the stay a pleasant one.

There is one member of the staff, I can not remember her name, who's willing to share and talk and she has been a nice surprise since when we had arrived we met another member of the staff not at all eager to talk and advise about different things you might do in Skopje.

The breakfast...actually not much to say about breakfast as you can not call it a breakfast. It consists of a pie and that's it. So it is better not to count on it.

We had a double room which was big enough and made the sleep enjoyable.

I stayed with a large group in May. We booked the entire hostel via a local friend.
The hostel is a converted house situated a 15 min stroll from central Skopje. The walk is nothing to write home about and you might as well spend one euro for a taxi. Cheap and fast.
We loved the Hi Skopje because of the staff and the common areas: both excellent.
Rooms are rather small, but you're supposed to be out there discovering beautiful Macedonia, so it's not so important.

Hi Skopje, is a peaceful place to stay, a bit out of town, but the taxi is really cheap, and the center is around 15 min walking. The dorm rooms were a bit crowded for me, and the lockers were not the best. They were far to small for a big backpack. Maybe the private rooms are better. Breakfast was just a simple bakery, no choice, better than nothing :). The garden is beautiful, the common places are very cosy. They even have a cute puppy, he definietly made the place more cosy. The living room is nice, bathroom OK, the staff was helpful and cheerful. Next time in Skopje, I might try to search for a more convenient hostel, but for this price it is also quite OK.

Room Tip: I would not recommend the dorm rooms, as they are very very crowded... Private rooms are much better...
