“Decent Hostel, not far from city center”
Reviewed 10 May 2014

The Hostel is not too far from city-center (5-10 minutes walk). The rooms are big (we had a king sized bed) and the price was 12€/pers. The sheets didn't seem perfectly clean, and the bathrooms were not shinning but it wasn't too bad.
The old man at the reception however is adorable and very helpful, he speaks very good french (yes, sorry being from France I didn't think about asking if he spoke any English).

IMPORTANT : One more important thing you want to do if you plan on staying here : print a map (a google map would be good enough I suppose) showing the Hotel location. The taxi driver who took me at the airport had a hard time finding the Hostel, and people he asked in the streets didn't help much ! (and I had the address but since it's a small street, it didn't help).

Reviewed 20 February 2014 via mobile

Well, the location of the hostel is not exactly in the heart of the city but not far. It takes just 5-10 minutes walk to the center. There is a local market area in the front street of the hostel. But it's really close to Kosovo Museum (2 min.)
The rooms are clean and big enough. Bathroom is shared which is not very clean but ok.
Though, this is the capital of the country, don't expect to see an amazing city. It needs some time to get bigger an better. Their currency is euro. You can find people speaking English and Turkish. But be careful if you go to suburbs.
The owner of the hostel is a lovely, helpful, friendly, tolerant old man.
