Definitely the best hostel in Belgrade. Hostel has a lot of character, as the common areas, the staff, the decor make it chilled out The beds are really comfortable and the decor is beautiful. Location is really nice. Situated on the Danube river in the middle of the park but still close to the city center. They offer boat tours... More

When we got to the Arkabarka we were greeted with such a warm reception. Instantly offered a drink, in the fantastic downstairs lounge area. We were given the best map ive seen on my travels, filled with information and humour. The staff clearly know the area and can point out all the best places to see and things to do!... More

Stayed here as part of an Interrail trip with my boyfriend and this was definitely the best place we stayed. Excellent staff who are genuinely friendly and hospitable and went out of their way to help us and make us feel at home. Hostel itself is beautiful. It is especially nice to sit on the deck in the evening. A... More

A wonderful place to stay, a little way to go to the city, but located peacefully on the river with a very nice common area, great breakfast and a faboulus staff, who cares about you. And there´s a sauna included..;-)

I was here in the summer of 2011 (I think) in a Balkan train trip with a friend. Belgrade was a last stop and the city we liked better. Good part of it was because of this hostel. The staff was really friendly and authenticly Serbian at the same time, and we made good friends with the people we got... More

Everyone was really thoughtful and helpful. The staff was friendly and made me feel at home all the time. They even prepared sandwiches for us for breakfast! It takes a little walk to get to the city center, but it is really close to the coolest party boats, belgrade's nightlife.

Very nice place, absolutely friendly staff! Beautiful hostel! Near to nightlife (10 min.), but perfect to relax. Breakfast and free wi-fi included in price. There is a bar at the place, and a 0-24 recepcion.

I spent 4 nights in the hostel. You have a magnificent view from most of the rooms, even to the castle. The staff is lovely and they help you whereever they can. The furnishings of the rooms are simple but nice. The cafe terrace has also a great panorama across the Danube river. If you prefer a romantic scenery and... More

This place is different from any other hostel not only because it's floating but because the friendly environment is so homey. They offer a FREE breakfast and cheap drinks late night before going out. This is the perfect place to stay to have great time in Belgrade.

Amazing place. Just the right one for a city trip to Belgrade if you really want to hang out with locals as well. All our hosts were great and very hospitable people. The hostel is perfectly situated, downtown, pubs, clubs, etc. are easy reach. The view from the floating terrace is just unmatched. Breakfast is included and we loved this:... More
