I got to Belgrade at about 6 am and did not realize that the reception was not open. I found a place to use the web to check if there was a way to get into the hostel as I was extremely tired. I found an email from Ksenija -- owner/operator -- that had a detailed message of how to enter the building and where the keys were waiting for me,
Once I got into the hostel I was trying to figure out which room my girlfriend and I had reserved when I noticed a trail of notes with "Adam and Daniela" this way.... The notes led thru the entry-way, the kitchen, and the final one on our door! It was like a scavenger hunt! And the prize was a super clean room, that was cute and cozy, not to mention a fantastic bed to finally rest on!
Ksenija went out of her way to get me into the building and is easily one of the most genuine hosts I have come across in my 15 years of traveling via hostels/guesthouses. With 46 countries under my belt I can safely say, anyone that comes to Belgrade should book here: they will have a relaxed place to rest, it feels more like an apartment than a hostel and a relaxed, easy to talk with host that will instantly warm you up to the people of Serbia.
I plan on returning to Belgrade in about 10 days just because of this place, it was such a great place to recharge I figure I'll do it again before moving north to Budapest.
