Amazing stay. Perfect location, the staff is the best. You'll feel welcomed instantly. Easy to bond with other travellers, so good for those who are on the road alone. Loved every minute.
The staff really make for a great time. They are really helpful and knowledgable about the area. This hostel is really relaxing. Highly recommend. Ps. We also recommend the free walking tour and Matka canyon while in town.
The hostel is conveniently located at a walking distance from the bus and train station so it was very practical. You can also walk easily to the center to visit the city or take a bus to the canyon. The staff is very friendly and will help you with any questions you have. Also we had a problem with our transport and had to stay another night and there was no problem. I would recommend definitely to stay there!
Staff was great!!!!!! Probably one of the best I've ever encountered. Free laundry was another great thing. Beds with curtains were a nice touch, I find the little extra privacy to be nice especially since I do school work while I travel and some people are sensitive to light. Would stay here again without a doubt!
Thank you for all the help. We had a great stay thanks to you! Lots of love, the belgium girls
Shanty is ideally located. Close to the bus station and about 10 minutes to the centre. The guys at the hostel are friendly. The communal yard area is a great place to chill out. The breakfast is served from 9, which is a bit late IMO. Few other negatives do thanks guys!
тој е убав, не? Great atmosphere in Shanti, different rooms for whatever your privacy needs are, stayed for 4 days, best accommodation for friendliness in my entire Balkans trip, Petarr and Sasha are the best hosts, really generous and hospitable, and had such a laugh with them! Cannot speak highly enough of them. Would love to go back, will stay there again without doubt if I'm in Skopje again. Go and stay there everyone!

Shanti hostel has an awesome staff and a great atmosphere. It is a walk away from the city centre and almost right next to the bus station. Facilities are good, except that some of the rooms are located in the 2nd floor and the nearest toilet is on 1st floor. But I'd definitely stay in Shanti again if I went to Skopje and I can very much recommend this hostel to anyone.
Lovely, laid-back hostel. Close to the bus-station, but still not too far from the city center. Has a nice common-area in its small garden. Can only recommend it!
what an amazing hostel! this centrally located abode is run by local family that knows the ins and outs of skopje. the outside patio is perfect for lounging and the bed curtains are an added plus. stay here if you like people and want to make new friends :)
Nice place, close to the station and great staff.
Amazing hostel! The guys who run the place are amongst the friendliest hosts ever. One of them would go out of his way to buy us some rakija, beer or hamburgers in the evening while we could chill in the garden. The location was good, a bit outside of the centre but still within easy reach of everything. The beds were extremely comfortable with curtains to allow for some more privacy.
Great hostel with really cool communal area. Great rooms and clean bathrooms. Staff were awesome really helpful gave us lots of info about the town and what to do, one even walked us to the shops so we didn't get lost. Full kitchen facilities and great location would stay here again 100% when coming back to Skopje.
A chilled small hostel with a great atmosphere. All the staff make an effort to get to know you and are helpful.
Great value accommodation,very clean and staff always willing to help and answer any questions.

The best hostel to stay at when in Skopje hands down! Peter and his wife are the best people to talk to when wanting to know about Macedonia in general let alone Skopje! Everything is top notch! The exact reason why they are always fully booked in the summer!
Such a great chilled out hostel. Staff were so helpful and the doorms were clean and met all the needs of a backpacker
Great atmosphere and really friendly and helpful staff, good location. Highly recommended!
Really great hostel with super friendly staff, they were in the process of fitting air conditioning to the rooms during my status making things more comfortable.
