The service was perfect. So much kindness ! They tell you about all good things to see in the city and you can take some free bikes to visit it your own way. Freedom ! The beds are very VERY comfortable and bathrooms so clean. The breakfast on the Danube is magic too ! Really good feelings

We had a perfect stay here. The room was better then expected, the guys working here took great care, are nice to talk to and even have a computer where you can work on. Great breakfast, international and chilly atmosphere and a great view along the River Danube is included. Definitely come back here if I will return to Belgrade... More

We arrived at Arka Barka after an awfully tiring 15 hour train journey, we were greeted with cups of tea and coffee on the terrace before being shown to our beautiful room. Our room and bathroom were both immaculate and our stay was perfect. We were given lots of advice on where to eat/drink and go out in Belgrade. We... More

Stayed recently for a few days in Belgrad and needed an accommodation near the Palace of Serbia. Arkabarka was the right choice. Very relaxing atmosphere, nice people and breakfast at the riverside was just a perfect start into the day. The hostel is run by a bunch of young people, who speak very well English and who like what they... More

Accomodation is quite costy compared to what the hostel provides. The rooms are very small, in a way claustrophobic. Beds are not stable and very uncomfortable. The windows in our room haven't been cleaned for ages; on the wall, you could see the rests of a mosquito that someone smashed. Very unfriendly owner.
