It was the best hostel i have ever stayed. Waking up with this view is amazing. Staff also so nice, cheerful and helpful. Breakfast was good as well. Its not in the center of city but you can go to center by bus in 5-10 min. In a nutshell i want to be there again!

The place is amazing, it is an floating hostel, and when you wake up the view which you reveal is at least the most beautiful image you can get. The crew is really kind and their services are high quality. As a recommendation if you are looking for a beautiful and quiet holiday on Serbia, you should pick this place... More

Very clean, beautiful and friendly hostel. The staff is very nice and the view of Danube river is amasing. They have a nice terrace for morning coffee or beer in the middle of the day. Very romantic place, I love to come back here every time.

Very interesting hostel, we had great time there :) Great view of the Danube river, very cozy commonplace with a fireplace, the people were friendly. And if you are wondering - the hotel is firmly anchored and you don't feel the floating :)

We didn't know what to expect from a "floating" hostel. To be fair, we half expected it to be cold or at least drafty during the winter. However, we were pleasantly surprised with it. The good: Great view of the old fortress and the new city, especially at night. Friendly staff. Well heated. Clean and cozy. Terrace right next to... More

After spending 2.5 weeks in a village house- and pet-sitting, a much needed rest and relaxation was definitely what the doctor ordered. Arkabarka Floating Hostel to the rescue!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yes, yes, we had to walk a bit to get to the hostel (we arrived at night and didn't know which bus to take, number 16, by the way) but like an... More

I was here only for a weekend, but I completely enjoyed staying here. Although the location is not maybe perfect for those who want to stay near the city center, it doesn't change the loveliness of this place. Most of all, staff is really warm, cool and helpful. Plus, for very low price you get to enjoy the wonderful experience... More
