It's not really a hostel, more like a few rooms in an apartment where the elderly owners still live and just rent out rooms. They sit in the lounge at front and supervise the operation. It's kind of funny and cosy at the same time but not what I expected :-)
Maybe outside it doesn't look good, but I assure you, it is the nicest, cleanest and comfiest hostel I've ever been. Owners are very kind and nice elders. Location is near bus station, which makes this hostel pretty accessible. What is more, there is a good restaurant with Serbian cuisine nearby. Also prices are good for students 😄
I know that there must be better hostels than this in Belgrade. I stayed one night and that was enough. It is near the main station its only good point. Dangerous approach over rough pathway. Belgrade is an edgy city. Thousands of refugees sleeping out on railway lands.
I've stayed there twice: in a twin room with shared bathroom and in a studio. Staff is hospitable although they don't speak English. At least that what I thought upon my first arrival (then turned out the hostess speaks very decent English so I have no idea why on my question if anyone speaks English there has been a silence). They don't speak Russian as well although some reviews say different. There was another issue: when I asked about room price, I was told one figure which I paid. But when I requested a check, there was a lower price and they gave me the difference back. Twin Room: Room was super-basic. Bed was OK. Only a pillow was way too tough for me. I didn't like almost transparent curtains. For daytime it's so-so but at night, when the lights are on, everything is visible. Also since the room is just opposite a kitchen and next to exit area and reception, it could be a little bit noisy. When I got to sleep, I've heard owners watching a TV, and around 3 am some guest were checking out. So if you're a light sleeper it could be a problem because the room isn't soundproof. But it has a lot of electric sockets, like really a lot. Which is good so you can charge all your devices. This room goes with a shared bathroom which is next to reception and hall, one for men and another for women. I don't know if this place is ever crowded but I didn't have a problem getting to the bathroom. Towel was shabby and looked gray although it was clean. Studio: Basic again although with its own teeny-tiny kitchenette. Hard pillow (I guess it's a problem for a majority of hotels in Serbia), I had to use a towel instead. Studio's wall is bordering with staircase in a building so you hear everyone going up and down all day and night long. Lots of sockets in a studio too. Location is fine, 5-7 minutes to bus and train station and around 15 minutes to the center. Next to the hostel is a nice restaurant Zavichaj. In a close proximity are some shops and ATMs. I didn't like that on my way to the bathroom (twin room) I had to pass a hostess sleeping on a couch because I felt like intruder. I was afraid to wake her up every time I opened the door. Also I didn't like a shower system, shower head was very low making it quite difficult to wash. And bathroom had a weird odor, like sewer system, maybe because the building is very old. Although everything was very clean. Also I didn't like big bars of soap. It's not very hygienic, I don't know who used it before and for what purpose. It's better provide guests with small hotel soap bars or put a container for a liquid soap. What I liked about this hostel is water. It was hot straight away and temperature was stable. You don't have to wait when the water becomes warm, you don't need to rotate faucets every single minute because the temperature is changing. So water was nice. If I knew that I had to stay there for several days (no matter which room) I would be sad. But for a night it's OK.…
The hostel is clean, the beds are comfy. The location is good, there is supermarket, pub and restaurant right to it. The hostel is at 15 minutes from Kalemegdan and the center of the city. There is free wifi with good connection.
