“great place to chill in Skopje”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2014

I spent a couple of days in this hostel and really rate it. Its perfect for people who want to be close to the bus station (1min walk) and it is only a 10 min walk from the city centre. What i liked best about the hostel though were the owners, a lovely couple who were always wanting to help and had a lot of good stories to tell. It also has a cool roof terrace where you can chat to other travellers, recommemed!

This place for €7.50 a night is excellent value plus breakfast. I didn't have any but I am guessing it would be simple bread and all because I was off early.

Pros:
Spacious room
Comfortable bed
Proximity to bus station and also city centre/shopping mall after the station for buying ingredients to cook
Kitchen - very small but packed with everything that you need - cooked 3 meals here
Bathroom - huge and consistent hot water/high water pressure
Good WIFI

What they can improve on, for now it's more shabby than chic but I am not complaining, the owners are in the process of trying to make things better. No locker but this place feels really safe. So there's a lot of potential like having beers to sell, local map, transport information like bus schedule etc which other hostels are very good at. But again for this price, I am not complaining.

We met the owner of this hostel at the railway station. Even if we had already booked another hostel, owner was very helpful and guided us almost to our hostel! He was also really fair for the other hostel, and told us it was an excellent choice too. If staff is this helpful and nice, I'm sure that their hostel is also amazing and I would stay there next time.

Run by Cookie and her brother Top Cat, we had the most amazing stay here! The location was perfect, right by the bus station, and they were so welcoming! Gave us heaps of tips of what to do in the area. We missed our breakfast because we left early to go check out the city and after previously discussing our plans for the day topcat met us at the bus station with a packed breakfast - outstanding service! The rooms are spacious, the chill out zone on the roof is awesome!! We want to come back to Skopje just to revisit!! Hope to see you in a movie soon topcat, thanks for the bracelets!! :)

Room Tip: the cat room includes breakfast, and is awesome!

The owner was really welcoming with breakfast each morning and being generally very pleasant. The location was only 10 minutes walk from the main centre and right next to the bus station and a restaurant which was very useful.

A particular highlight has to be the lovely covered balcony on the top floor which allowed views of Vodno (impressive at night) and a great place to relax.

Would happily come again and fully recommend this place.

The best things about this hostel are the staff and the location next to the train/bus stations in a quite neighborhood. You can walk there in less than five minutes. The lady working there is very nice and extremely helpful. The price is also very cheap. Off season, we were paying 6 Euro. The beds were very comfy. They had a full size mattress bunk bed that is very nice for a couple. The dorm we were in was very big, clean and plenty of room. There was a narrow but long balcony. There is only one bathroom that I saw. Hot water showers. Showers could be a little cleaner. There is a small kitchen and small dining area and a covered roof top common area with a few couches. The wi-fi was strong. It worked in the dorm but didn't work so well on the roof top common area. The location is really good because you can walk there from the bus and train stations. However the city is actually on the other side of the station. It is not too far to walk the city (maybe 10-15 minutes). The bazaar area is a little farther. Nice walk along the river. We would definitely stay there again.

We had a great stay here. Not only are the hostel owners lovely, but are full of knowledge about Skopje and the local area. Anything they weren't sure of they would find out and get straight back to us. The rooms were really clean and the chill out room is really cool. About 10/15mins walk to the centre and felt safe walking around at night so didn't have to get taxis back. Would definitely return both to the hostel and to Skopje!
