Olive Hostel
Ranked #62 of 318 Specialty Lodging in Belgrade
Reviewed March 29, 2013

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.

Room Tip: If you are looking for a great place as a couple I cannot give a higher recommendation than the room...

I almost baulked when my friend told me it was only 8 euros to stay here! Right in the centre of Belgrade with great, clean facilities. Our overnight bus arrived into Belgrade at 6am and Ksenija let us check in that early and didn't charge us any extra. She also let us check out late the next day (around 8pm) again free. She was so friendly and enthusiastic and told us all about things to do in Belgrade. I would highly recommend staying here - the hidden gem in a beautiful city!

Stayed here twice and absolutely loved it both times. Kesenija is the perfect host: caring, helpful and funny. The hostel itself is in an awesome location, super clean and the beds are really comfy. Well and truly worth the price given the facilities. Thanks for everything Kesenija, I can't wait to stay here again!

Room Tip: The private twin is HUGE, definitely worth the price. But the dorm is also good :)

Clean, sunny and funny place! Location is in the heart of the city, and Ksenija was the best and most caring hostess I've ever met! She was texting me directions and tips where to leave the car :) Kitchen is well equipped too.
