Hostel Central Station
Ranked #201 of 313 Specialty Lodging in Belgrade
Reviewed May 14, 2013

The hostel is directly across from the bus/train station so you can't miss the hostel - just look for the ugliest building on the block. Go up one flight of stairs and the situation improves, friendly and helpful staff took me to my single room, which was large and the twin beds were comfortable. The shared bathroom down the hall was clean and plenty of hot water in both showers. Fast Wi-Fi and computers in the hallway, shared refrigerator and excellent sitting area outside. Only problem was the noise from the streets, but my room faced the back so no problem for me - oh and the mosquitos are everywhere, in the bathrooms and a few in the room so ask the front desk for the little device that you plug into the wall or bring repellant. Overall, good value in an expensive city.

Room Tip: take the room not facing the street

NO PRIZES for being smooth or flash, but a good place to crash after a hard day's travel. Location is the best feature, being adjacent to the train and 'bus stations, also where the transport from the airport dumps the passengers. Belgrade city centre is a twenty minute walk, with 'the other' 'bus station about fifteen minutes away, a right turn up the hill off ulica Gavrila Principa.
Staff on recepcija have always been pleasant and helpful on the few occasions I've used Central Station and called taxis as needed to catch night flights home. The sleeping accommodation is basic, but with clean linen and comfortable bunks. The bathroom area is the best feature, clean and recently modernised with good showers. Biggest downside is the building which accommodates the hostel facilities, very old and somewhat dilapidated. Needs an update really, but OK to crash one night.

Room Tip: Difficult...you tend to go where you're put!

This hostel is across the bus station and that is the only positive thing about it. Otherwise, it is small and crowded, really dirty, stained sheets, no toilet privacy, loud...eve though we had a reservation for the next night, the staff told us that we have to be accommodated in another hostel, because they've rented our beds (during the night)...It turned out good thing that we were relocated! It is not worth your money, and it's nothing like in the photos!

Room Tip: Maybe the private room, but try to avoid this hostel

This hostel is located 15-20mins walk from the centre of town, not the best neighborhood by far...
The office lady we dealt with was by far the worst hostel staff I have ever dealt with. No local information or hostel info, google was our friend.
There is no air con in the rooms only communal areas.
It's not worth the €15 each a night we paid.
Positive points the rooms are clean and it's close to the bus and train station.

Great location, right accross from the train/bus station, this hostel mostly features dorms (there seemed to be one or two private rooms). The hostel is rather big. Bathrooms are rather spacious and clean, although there was a queue for the shower in the morning. The staff were very friendly and everything went smoothly when I visited. There are no common rooms where to hang out, a slight disappointment for solo travelers. Also the kitchen has no sink.. The city center is within walking distance. All in all, a good hostel to try if you arrive at Belgrade central station.

This hostel's central location, right across from both the train and bus stations, is very convenient. Staff is friendly and the hostel is clean. In summer, the annex, to the back of the main hostel, is opened up as well, and that old wooden construction is a very nice place to stay in.
The main building isn't bad, but just a bit more like a classic hostel; a bit cramped and a bit noisy.

Prices are reasonable enough, but with the stiff competition that has sprung up in Belgrade recently, they're also not very competitive anymore.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the annex, if it's available.

I have lived in hostel Central Station for a several months and can say I'm very satisfied with the conditions. Clean and comfortable rooms, helpful and friendly staff, exellent location (opposite to the Central Railway and Central Bus Station, only 10 minutes walking from downtown and many clubs for night out).
