I stayed here one night on the way to belgrade from sofia in 2012. Its basically a converted flat/house, not your typical hostel. I ended up being the only person staying there. Its not your typical hostel in the sense that theres no real communal area, no sun terrace, no bar etc etc. Just a flat really with big shared... More

Happy Hostel Nis is located in the centre of the city, very close to the fortress. It looks across the Nisava river and the bridge. There is only a pedestrian road between the hostel and the stone cladded bed of the river. The road is full of high trees and walking along it you have a nice, pleasant view. The... More

The Happy Hostel, near the river, in the centre of Nis, and when you close the door downstairs you see the castle. And it is quiet there, even at 3 in the afternoon. A small hostel with nice hosts who will help you with everything. I was there for three nights, my first plan: one night.

We were with bicycles and they store them for us in their basement, so that we didn't have to worry about that. We were in this room with balcony and nice view on the... More

Don't let the front entrance spook you, the hostel is very pleasant, situated at the 2nd floor and really worths staying there!!! Honestly, the best place to live at Nis for many reasons! First of all, it is very central situated: walking distance and two streets far away from the Mc Donalds and the most central square! Secondly, you are... More

I didn't know what to expect when I got to Nis. When I arrived at the hostel, nobody was there. I had a local call the owner and he was there within 10 minutes. In spite of that, the hostel was very clean and in a superb location. They had parking for my rental car as well. The management was... More

Loved our stay here. The women are incredible in Niš. Eventhough they are a bunch of prudes, we had an awesome stay. Don't let the front entrance spook you, the hostel is very pleasant and a great place to crash after time travelin for the night. I hope I make it back to Niš, preferably to marry a girl, and...
