Quite freshly build, funny place. Only one disadvantage is "problem" with car parking around the place. Perhaps the best for backpackers. Good for joggers, as you have huge, communist style park next door. Use mosquito blind if you don't like spiders.

The hostel was really easy to find following the directions on the website, even in the dark and rain (as we had to do. The location is stunning, floating right on the Danube. It is ideal if you are going to the Belgrade Beer Festival. All the staff were very helpful, friendly and informative about Belgrade. We loved the quirky... More

Friendliest staff, awesome location, a bit far from the city but well-connected by bus and free bicycles to cycle around. There's a hammock on the terrace. You'll love it. Tip; go to the great war island for a day of relaxing on the beach or to the closeby restaurant called baracuda :)

This hostel was brilliant. It's in such a lovely location! Quite a long walk into the city centre or you can get a bus but that really doesn't matter because the location of the hostel on the river is great. Such a lovely place to chill in the evening and have (free) breakfast in the morning. Comfy dorm. Great staff,... More

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
