There were only two bathrooms, and with an almost full hostel it was really busy and you had to wait a long time. The staff was very friendly and the atmosphere great. It's located about a 5 min. walk from the city center.
it was great experience for me...the location is 10 min. walk to the city centre and 5 min. to the bus station...it was a cool place and I am sure it values the money...next time I will stay there indeed. you can understand this truth from the ratings of the hostel...they are very helpful about everything what you have in your mind. you feel yourself at a home-like athmosphere...there is nothing to make a complaint with the place...I love especially the night there...a little bit isolated and g
Pros:There are curtains around the beds so you can have a privacy. There are lamps above the beds, you can keep reading or use your computer even the room light is turned off. There are lots of electricty plugs in every bed so you can charge your electronic thing without waiting for a queue. Cons: It's really hard to find the hostel for a foreigner in the city. The directions sent is really poor. The location is a litle bit far from the touristic area. No lockers. The bathroom is at downstairs.
Due to adding an extra night, we stayed at both Shantis (they are basically next to each other) and they were equally brilliant. Nice and helpful staff, clean rooms, nice showers; everything you would want from a hostel. Plus they organised a free walking tour. Simply excellent.
Great hostel with friendly staff and owners. WE received a friendly welcome and there was breakfast. They do FREE walking tours of the city which is nice as you can meet some people during the tour. I'd highly recommend this hostel
Situated in a quite neighbourhood with the city centre and bus/railway station both within easy reach. Staff are very friendly and helpful and the atmosphere is very laid-back. Definitely the place to stay!
Really helpfull and friendly staff! Also nice space outside. Very close to the bus station was good too!
The hostel staff were very helpful and welcoming. They immediately helped us settle in and told us where to find an excellent restaurant with a ten per cent discount. Will definitely be staying here again.
The hostel itself is nice, however I had personal property stolen during my stay and got little more than a shrug from staff members.
Very good hostel and helpful staff. Good location for Bus station and close to the main tourist area of Skopje although the area around the hostel itself is a bit run down. Other downside is shortage of bathrooms, but that wasn't too much of a problem. Nice rooms and the curtains around each bed in the dorms were a good touch as well.
Great place with cool vibes, would stay at the same hostel if i came back, thanks guys!
I initially booked in for one night but ended staying longer. A brilliant hostel, really friendly staff situated in a must see city. The hostel is really close for to the coach station and easy to find, 3 minutes to the city centre (3 mins to the bus station).
Staff was very friendly - perfect stay in this nice Hostel. Prof. Mag. Dr. Bruno Hartmann

I wish the lockers were larger. You can pretty much only put a backpack in it. It would be nice if there was another bathroom/shower too. But the people were nice and it is easy to get to from the bus station.
I really enjoyed the friendly and helpful staff. The bunkbeds were comfortable and sturdy so n squeaking beds! My shared room had a big balcony to hang out on but there is a downstairs couurtyard. Nice breakfast included. Excellent location just 5 minutes walk from the bus/train station.
This hostel is charming, near the center, clean and pleasant! The staff (especially Petar the owner) are lovely - quite literally the nicest people you will ever meet! Situated not too far from town or the station, this hostel is ideal for short stays in Skopje and long trips alike! The staff are always ready to help and often - as they did in my case - go far beyond the call of duty to help - hence the 100% rating! I have never stayed in such a cool hostel and can't wait until next year! Thanks
STAY HERE!! Staff is incredible and will do anything for their guests. Peter and his girlfriend (the owners) are the nicest people ever who run a fun, clean, safe hostel with an amazing atmosphere! Don't stay anywhere else. This hostel made my stay in Skopje amazing!!
The hostel is perfectly situated - just 5 minutes walk from the city center. The neighbourhood is quiet. The staff is very friendly and helpful, they are always ready to give advice. Th place is colorful and has a style. Kitchen has absolutely everything neccessary for pleasant cooking. The rooms are rather small and it is extremely hot to sleep at night. Two bathrooms are almost always occupied. This is a nice place for those who want to meet other people as it has not much privacy.
