To be honest, City Hostel was my only option as I did not have much time to look for an alternative. As soon as I stepped through the door I noticed that this hostel was a great choice for budget travellers. First of all, it is only a 5 minute stroll along the riverbank to reach the main square where... More

Very reasonable prices for a comfy room. I shared a three person ensuite room with two of my friends and we paid 10 euros each per night. It was a quick and simple walk by the river to the centre of town. The staff were very friendly and offered us lots of free beer. The price of our room also... More

This hostel is very nearly perfect. It's near the station, almost next door to grocery shops and a few minutes from the city centre. The facilities are as you would expect and maintained to a good standard. Cleanliness is great. What really sets this place apart though, is the staff. They really are second to none. I've stayed in a... More

The place is located just a couple of minutes walk from the city center and a lot of interesting places. The owner is extremely friendly and super easy-going. He knows the best things around Prizren so he will give you directions on where to go and what to do. And if you are lucky, he might give you a tour... More

We were searching for a cheap place to stay in Prizren. After checking the prices in different hotels, we ended up staying here. We stayed in a private room for 25€ (dorms being 11€/pers.). Hotel staff was friendly and spoke good english. There is a small kitchen on the lower floor, and there is a beautiful terrace on the top... More

For being in such a quite unknown place (Prizren) it is an incredibly good hostel :) I really enjoyed the atmosphere, the guys there really know how to make you feel comfortable, they took me and other guests around in the city for a free tour and then back at the hostel we had free rakia and free beer, the...

Very nice hostel with friendly staff. Rooms are clean and large. They offer coffee or tea on the house during the day. It takes less than 5 mins by walking to main attractions of Prizren. I would choose this hostel if I visit Prizren again. My only minor is that wi-fi connection wasn't working on the third floor.

Let's start with the positives. The location is pretty central, less than a 15 minute walk from the bus station, and no more than five minutes to Prizren's main square, where all the action is. The host, Galdim, is indeed a nice guy. The price--15 EUR for a single room with shared bathroom--was not too much. The rooftop patio is... More

This hostel reminded me of why I love backpacking and being in hostels. It's a good hostel with a nice bunch of people staying there but it's the guy who runs the place makes it. He couldn't be more helpful and also hands out free beer and wine in the evening. I hear there is a roof garden but we... More

After our pleasant experience in Tirana, we arrived in the lovely city of Prizren, Kosovo, and found our way to the City Hostel. Another nice surprise, super clean, great rooms, and a feast for breakfast, eggs, cheese, salami, tomatoes, preserves and lovely fresh bread washed down with excellent coffee! My friend and I found that the coffee all over the... More
