Guess what? Niš is also named and spelled Nis - It is the same destination. Goodbye confusion.

Niš is the unofficial capital of Southern Serbia. This small city is right on the main roads and rails between Central and eastern Mediterranean Europe and onward to the Middle East. The city is a good for a short visit, there is a large fortress and a functioning city-center. This is a place you can take care off all your needs or errands if you are on a longer trek, or a well-suited base for exploration of the nearby regions. Its both the road and public transportation hub both regionally and internationally with daily buses going as far as Vienna and trains as far as Istanbul.

There are several hostels in Niš and getting a bed should be easy. Although hostels in the center are normally preferable, the city is not very big, and public bus transportation is good and cheap. Location isn't everything here, if you're taking a bus or train into or out of the city you'll find out that the pace of things in the region is slow, and there's no use being in a hurry as life here moves at its own pace, so saving time to maximize your stay is hard to plan. Nonetheless, you should consider the location of your Niš hostel pick, since you may get in later than expected. If arriving by train note that the station is 2km from the center. Some hostels are between the center and the train station, which proves indeed a good balance for travelers. Other Hostels in Nis that are on the other side of the center are less practical for a short stay unless driving.
