Stayed here as part of an Interrail trip with my boyfriend and this was definitely the best place we stayed. Excellent staff who are genuinely friendly and hospitable and went out of their way to help us and make us feel at home. Hostel itself is beautiful. It is especially nice to sit on the deck in the evening. A... More

I was here in the summer of 2011 (I think) in a Balkan train trip with a friend. Belgrade was a last stop and the city we liked better. Good part of it was because of this hostel. The staff was really friendly and authenticly Serbian at the same time, and we made good friends with the people we got... More

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.

I spent 4 nights in the hostel. You have a magnificent view from most of the rooms, even to the castle. The staff is lovely and they help you whereever they can. 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.

Amazing place. Just the right one for a city trip to Belgrade if you really want to hang out with locals as well. All our hosts were great and very hospitable people. The hostel is perfectly situated, downtown, pubs, clubs, etc. are easy reach. The view from the floating terrace is just unmatched. Breakfast is included and we loved this:... More

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
