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.

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.

Me and Tanya stayed in ArkaBarka for four days and felt that we are home! The owner and his employees were very welcoming, understanding, fun and helpful! Their hospitality is a true ambassador for Serbia and Belgrade. The room was just a perfect match for our needs. It is on a calm river bank in the park, yet not far... More

Probably I expected more after visiting their home page and booking my stay here. In reality this is just normal hostel. With "normal" I mean average place, without good surprises but also without bad ones. Good thing is location which is advantage for them in spring and summer (it was rainy when we visited it, therefore could not enjoy in... More
