We stayed in the Hostel Friends for three nights with a buddy of mine with whom I was travelling around Europe with. With some scope of comparison with other hostels, I feel I have some legitimacy in commenting on hostels. The Hostel Friends is truly a delightful place. The name in itself is truly a good representation as you really feel in a homely atmosphere. It is very practically located, with many nice restaurants around and easily accessible from the bus or train stations. The staff are absolutely lovely and I encourage you to spend some time with them in the chill out area chatting and absorbing the Belgrade culture from the locals. The rooms were very clean and we had by far the best beds of the whole summer, and at the cheapest rate! Do not hesitate to ask for anything as the staff is always ready with helpful suggestions of what to eat, where to go out, what to visit and where to stay away from. One of the most pleasant things about the hostel was the fact that we had no key, indeed the hostel is always open, this adding to the very charming nature of the place already!
I heartily encourage your stay in the Hostel Friends! Enjoy.
