Hey, you don't often have the chance to lodge on a floating hostel, so if you're going to Belgrade, choose this place! Personnell is very kind and nice. Atmosphere is relaxed and chilling. The centre of Belgrade is not far (you may need a cab ride). The only issue are mosquitos, but... you're literally on the big river man, so... More

My sister-in-law and I are around 50, so we don't usually stay in hostels anymore, but ArkaBarka is wonderful! Such a lovely location on the river. Yes, it's a bit outside the center, but you can easily catch a bus or taxi for very little money, and in 5 minutes you're in town. The rooms we stayed in (king studio... More

Very cozy and beautiful place with excellent location. It is really amazing to wake up in the morning and the first thing to see when opening your eyes is the river. Pricing is fair. Hosts are very kind and nice people.

I stayed there on a layover from Belgrade airport and was able to travel to and from the airport very easily. I even had time to see some of the city as the hostel is only a short distance from the center.

Staff were helpful with a map and places to visit as soon as we were ready. Really great setting. Stayed in a twin room with bathroom, which had a shower head you had to hold. Clean and modern. The area to sit is awesome over looking the river. It's a great spot to start off in Belgrade. Was a bit... More

I have had a wonderful time staying in this place.It is an unique combination between a capital city and nature! It is very relaxing to wake up and be at the river Danube coast and observe the birds, have your coffee at the porch - just before you rush in the busy city-life.The room was nice and clean, very friendly...

Belgrade or Zemun or........From "Arka Barka" you can choose if you want to walk (30min to the City Centre each), sail with Captain Stanko and his charmeful boat, or take a taxi/bus (2min. away over the green) to reach all the nice places around you. Arka Barka is absolutely a recommendation from my side, because of... - the friendly owner... More

This is a nice place to stay with short walk and 5ish minute bus ride to the nostrils of Belgrade. It has 24 hour friendly helpful staff, clean neat accommodation and gentle unhurried eye candy from the deck. Add maybe a few more touristy pamphlets to help travellers. Belgrade and Arkabarka - good stuff.
