Staff were so friendly – loved having a beer with them and other guests in the garden. Also so close to the train station. Thanks so much guys!

Staff were among the best of all the hostels I have stayed at around the world. very helpful friendly and knowledgeable. The hostel itself was nice as well and I can very highly recommend staying here if you are going to visit, you will not be dissapointed.

So far I have stayed in the Shanti Hostel for several times. I want to say that the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff members have been consistant during each of my stay. They are also well connected with other hostels in this region. Once I needed a rersevation with Hostel Mostel in Sofia, Bulgaria. Onlne booking showed it was full but Shanti staff made a phone call to Sofia for me and arranged a reservation through their personal connection. Shanti is the only place I would stay during my weekend

Best hostel I\’ve ever visited! Petar and Dima, owners of Shanti hostel are doing everything to make that place more like home than just hostel. Atmosphere, conditions and of course Shanti Hostel crew are very, very good. I can strongly recommend You Shanti Hostel as best place to sleep and have good time in Skopje! )

As Peter would say; “everything is cool here.” Peter and the rest of the staff make this place welcoming. 100% recommended. Worth every penny. It feels like you are staying at a friend’s house.

This was definetely the best hostel I visited so far – the hosts, Petar and Dina were amazing, making us feel like home. Eventhough the rooms were full, there was lovely and cosy, delicious breakfast, useful advices… More than I expected from any type of accomodation

We were only in Shanti for one night. We had the private room and it was pretty awesome. Nice big bed and very well decorated. The owners are AWESOME people and want to show you a good time, so definitely go there if you want to be in a really chill environment with some cool people. Skopje is not all that and a bag of chips, but for a night or two, Shanti is definitely the place to stay if you want to relax and explore the city.

I really enjoyed shanti hostel, a place of peace and friendliness located very close to the bus station and the center, the staff is amazingly nice and friendly and the dorms are clean, give you a little privacy if you need it. I recommend for everyone to stay in shanti hostel if they have the (very good) idea to pass by skopje !

A really cool hostel located close to the bus station in Skopje. The staff are really friendly and the owner Peter is a really cool guy. The hostel has good facilities including free wifi, free breakfast, equipped kitchen, clean bathrooms. There is both indoor and outdoor common areas which are a great way to meet people. The hostel has great character and is highly recommended.

Great Hostel in a decent location from the train/bus station and the centre of Skopje. Petar was an excellent host and the airport pickup he offered saved a lot of hassle and cost.

Shanti hostel is a fantastic place to stay. very welcoming and will help with anything. They have extensive knowledge on further travel, and if they hit a stump themselves they will find out for you! one night all the guests sat in the “living room” together and Pete, who runs the place ordered pizza for us all and sorted out the beers! it was like being in your mates flat! couldnt help saying at the end of a days walking around town, “lets go home”. Very special hostel with very special people. xx

We cannot recommend this hostel highly enough. The staff continually went above and beyond to make sure our stay was comfortable and enjoyable. Peter the owner even went out to buy us beer and organized pizza delivery whilst we sat and watched Euro vision.. What a champ! This is the place to stay!!!

The location was great- 5-10 minutes from the bus station and 10-15 minutes from Old Mall/Center. Staff were friendly and helpful. Accomodations were clean and comfortable.

Right from the first moment I knew I was going to enjoy my stay. Peter was super nice, friendly and helpful. This hostel ahs some real character and Peter helps all visitors know each other and have a comfortable stay.

Really close to the bus station and an easy walk to the city center. Four-bed dorm was spacious enough for everyone’s stuff and each bed had a curtain for privacy! Bathrooms and dorms were very clean and the shower was fantastic. (The person before me took a long shower and I still had plenty of hot water.) Peter, the owner, was very helpful with every question I had and was even able to point me to a a good restaurant serving Macedonian food.

Very hospitable and cosy hostel. Great for solo travellers as the kitchen / living area makes it easy to meet people. The staff are friendly and generous and catered to all my needs. I only intended on staying a few days but stayed considerably longer. Have stayed at many hostels and this is easily one of the best.

Loved the atmosphere of this hostel. It was homey and relaxed and is probably the best thing about visiting Skopje. Breakfast was great and the staff are very friendly and helpful.
