Small hostel that has a great location. It is 5 mins from the bus station and then 10 to the city center.


Very helpful staff even after you check out.


We really enjoyed our stay, the location looks kinda weird at the first glance, but is perfectly fine. Staff there was also really helpful.


Nice staff


Great location, excellent facilities, friendly and professional staff. The hostel provides breakfast and includes a spacious (and nicely decorated) garden. Definitely the best choice when visiting Skopje!


good for staying one or maybe two nights, at the beginning I felt the surroundings were a bit peculiar, but at the same time, the hostel is very close to the railway stations, which is very nice. the owner was very friendly, other travelers a bit special ...


I liked this hostel. It is between the bus/train station and downtown. I walked everywhere from the hostel. Very satisfied with this hostel.


A nice small family home hostel in the city. Location is great. Staff is always eager to help and give suggestions where to go.


At first the street of the hostel looks really weird and eerie (especially at night) but the place is extremely secure. Just behind the most secure place in the whole city (national bank) Right next to the river between two sides. Staff is extremely friendly. I recommend this hostel without any doubts.


Location is quite good for the usual backpacker. Somewhere between train/bus station and downtown. There is only one shower which is like the toilets not really clean. Breakfast is really simple: bread and cheese, nothing fancy. The building is a bit rundown but has its charm. Staff was not overly talkative but friendly and helpful. Unfortunately we encountered some wifi-crashs.


Great hostel, with polite and helpful owners. Nice atmosphere. Clean room and baths. Hostel located close to the center. I recommend, I had a very nice experience.

Well this is a nice hostel with friendly atmosphere, more like staying at a family house with lot of space (you wouldn't tell from outside). Everything was excellent and for the given price, well, that's a bargain! Even got nice breakfast! Keep it alive, Art-Hostel, we really appriciated your hospitality!


Only stopped through for the night. It is a great location between the train station and the city center. Really nice owner...happy to help with anything. It is pretty laid back.


New mattresses and a few other overhauls and these reviews can certainly rebound because the staff is super nice and area actually deceivingly close to the center...next to bus station is a huge factor as well!

We stayed at this hostel for 4 days. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, and in the end we didn't even want to leave the hostel, even though Skopje is an amazing city. Of all the hostels I've been to, this is surely one of the best. Except for the great location the prices are really low, the security and the cleanliness are excellent, and the atmosphere makes you feel like at home already after some hours.




It was very nice and suprising to meet Polish in that hostel and to be treated so nice by the staff. The localisation is very good, by the river and near the bus/train station and I had no problems to get ther, although if somebody is scared of crappy buildings at night which are on the way to the hostel then he would better come there during the day :) It small but cosy hostel with very nice staff and You have there what You need. Not far from city center which is also good.


kind of hard to find the place if you don't read the cyrilic alphabet but once you get there, it's pretty cool. The staff was really helpfull and gave us good advice about the city and the transport services to get around. the breakfast is good and we even get some nice dinner, all included :)


Provided a meal in the evening which was a very nice touch
