Perfect place to spend some time with friends. We chose ArkaBarka for our long weekend in Belgrade, and it was the right one. We'll definitely come back! Wonderful place- great atmosphere, friendly attitude, smiling nice people. If you go there, don't miss the boat trip! ;)

Staying at the hostel was comforting in every way; great location, perfect cleanliness of the accommodation as a whole and, most of all, excellent service and homely atmosphere is what I was sold out to so now I know where to stay next time I'm in Belgrade!

Searching for simple accommodation in Belgrade, brought me to ArkaBarka Hostel and it was a great choice. Great location, superb staff and impressive surrounding. Never slept before at floating hostel (despite fact I thought it is completely fixed) and it was great experience waking up with river view. :) Breakfast on terrace with view on Kalemegdan fortress and new part...

We as a group of 6 bicyclists stayed at the Arkabarka. It was a very nice place. The staff was very friendly and helpful, helping us plan out our sightseeing and even helping us hire a 4am taxi (2 of them) for the ride to the airport with our bikes. It's pretty amazing to sit at a table looking over... More

We spent 2 nights in this great hostel! It has everything you need: an interesting and helpful introduction to the city map and cool places at our arrival, a clean and cosy room, a beautiful terrace with an amazing view over the river and the Citadelle and a quiet but easy to reach location! The best were the free bikes... More

I spent three nights in this architecturally appealing hostel. The staff is friendly and easy going, almost makes you think you've come to visit some old friends. There is cold beer, a beautiful view of the Great war island and the Kalemegdan fortress which overlooks both of the rivers which are the very lifeblood of this stunning city.

Very nice hostel located on the Danube river , with a great view on the Citadelle. Bedroom was very spacious and clean for the price. The staff was very friendly and helpfull. Breakfast was also ok. The hostel is close to restaurants, nightclubs and bus stop by walk. We'll come back there one day, maybe !

We found Arkabarka very easily with the help of the map from their site and a little help of local people which are very friendly and helpfull. We walked from the Main Railway Station to Zeleny Venac and then to Arkabarka following the route on the map. This is the place where you feel that you are a welcome guest... More
