The hostel is situated a short walk from the city centre, and a little longer walk from the beach (Strand). It's very cosy, with clean, nicely decorated rooms, wifi everywhere and kitchen facilities. Also very friendly staff! Would absolutely stay at City Hostel again:)

I stayed here 2 nights in the private room with its own bathroom (3rd floor). The room was comfortable, reasonably clean, with air conditioning and TV. The shower in the bathroom is a bit shabby and a few towel holders are broken, but otherwise it's spacious enough and clean. Don't forget to take your own towels and shower gel/shampoo -... More

Stayed in this hostel for one night with a Group of friends. It is a good hostel, in a good location. Possibilities to do proper cooking. Staff was kind and helpful, Hostel quite small so not the best for larger Groups.

I stayed there for two nights in March 2013. It is not far from the main square and main central streets. Staff was very friendly and helpful during my stay. Room was very nice set, with a big double bed. There was LCD TV and private bathroom as well. It was very cheap but very clean and friendly.

In this hostel there are two good things. Many beds in one room (like 10 beds in one room - good for party people on festivals) and kindly staff. Everything else is bad. In room there are no towels, so if you don't have one you can take a shower (be prepare for that). I know this is low budget... More

After some incredibly bad orienteering my friend and I found ourselves quite lost, and without a map in Novi Sad. Luckily, we phoned up City Hostel, and they helped us find our way to the hostel! The beds were comfortable, clean, and after experiencing many other hostel bathrooms, I would have to say this shower was incredible! Friendly atmosphere amongst... More

I chose this place based on positive reviews and I was not at all disappointed. We had a double room with private bathroom and it was excellent - clean and comfortable. Being on the top floor, it was also quiet, though we were not inside that much. On the floor there is a shared kitchen with mini fridge, sink and... More

I was at this hostel with 30 other people for the same reason so it was great fun. I slept well but on moments it felt really cold and I didn't have any blankets to cover. Bathroom wasn't that clean and toilet seat was destroyed. The good things about this hostel are: location (5min from city center), price (I think... More

Cozy, friendly, clean, well located (far enough from the crowded streets but close enough to be there in 3 minutes walk). Very kind owners. The hostel has also a nice yard to enjoy life sitting there. If I have to go again to Novi Sad, I will stay there for sure. From Spain: thank you very much for everything again!
