This article aims to present a comparative analysis of the hostel sector in Macedonia and Bulgaria. For the purposes of the present study an exploratory (qualitative) research was made to analyze the current condition of the hostel sector in both countries. Secondary data sources were used, by consulting the relevant literature from the hostel sector and Internet. Furthermore, several informal interviews with hostel owners in Skopje and Sofia were conducted to obtain first-hand information related to different aspects of the operation and the development of the hostels. Moreover, a comparative analysis of the tourism sector and the hostel tourism is graphically presented in a table. The research is divided to several parts that cover definition of the hostel sector; its historical development; the trends in the hostel business; the profile of the tourists that chose hostels for accommodation; and recommendations for the development of the sector in Bulgaria and Macedonia.
