Skopje brims with hostels and the standards are high, though unfortunately there are no decent options in the heart of the city centre around the Čaršija. Higher-end hotels, some of them a little faded, surround the Ploštad Makedonija.

The Debar Maalo neighbourhood (a 10-minute walk west of the centre towards the City Park) offers good midrange and budget options amid cafes and restaurants.
