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 ...

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.

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 :)

Even though it might look a little shabby, it really is actually a very friendly and nice place to stay at. The owner's daily visiting friends might come across a little weird, but they're actually pretty cool.

The sheets and pillows were so dirthy,old and dappled. It was sickening.Inside hostel there is one bathroom and one toilet. and the washbasin was in bathroom so if someone in bathroom you cant use washbasin also. The neighbourhood was slum area that doesnt seem secure.

So close to the city center but so little noise. A window looking out over the flowing river and listening to birds singing in the morning. A staff member cooked for the guests on the night I was there, traditional Macedonian soup. It waas the best food I had tasted in a long while. I was very happy with the place.

I felt a warm welcome from the moment I entered this place. The couple who run this hostel are very good and friendly people and were always willing to help me and everyone else. I booked for one night and ended up staying for a week and I will be sure to return soon. The building is very old and there is definitely a significant ambiance about the place; they are working towards making the hostel bigger and better and I'm looking forward to seeing what they have done with the building

Very nice hostel with great people

The staff were friendly and helpful and the location is really good. The hostel could do with a bit of fixing up and some new bed linen. But it was a cheap option for one night.
