After reading the German review below, I think giving Rookies 1 star is very unjust. In terms of the facilities, this is a very small hostel with a couple of dorms & private room. The beds are the most comfortable beds I've ever had in a hostel, and the whole place was extremely clean. There is only one bathroom, which never affected me negatively. It's less than a 5 minute walk to the main part of town. Wifi works everywhere throughout the hostel (and it's fast). But the absolute best thing is that this hostel is run by people who care. The staff are amazing and I'd chat with Zarko every day (I stayed for a week). They really care about you, you don't feel like just another number. They will do absolutely everything to help you find things to do, organise tours, or just talk about the history of Serbia (or anything really). Because it's so small, you feel like part of a family. I've stayed in so many hostels where the staff couldn't care less about you, and let me tell you, after 10 months you really get over it. So finding a hostel like Rookies is a godsend. I would recommend this hostel to everyone.

Room Tip: The 3 bed dorm has a single bed.

I did not stay at this hostel when I was in Novi Sad, we stayed at the neighbours place. But everytime I walked by the owner took some time to make a chat and to give some information and tips about the city and the surroundings. We got a lot of tips about places to eat, see, about the festival, etc, very good tips! We even got a next stay for our next stop, Timisoara, Romania. Very recommended staff wise.

Room Tip: This place is right in the city centre, but away from the busy street. Everything is in walking distance.
