“Great value and great place to stay”
Reviewed 20 June 2013

As others have written this place is more like a hotel then a hostel. All the staff working there were helpful, attentive, and friendly. They were happy to answer any questions and upon check-in did a great job explaining everything about Belgrade: sights, transport, good places to eat, good places to drink, where to rent a bike, fun activities, things going at night, etc.
One thing to be aware of since it's more hotel then hostel there wasn't a whole lot of mingling with other guests. Most guests were also older or families. Didn't bother me but not really a "social" "meet people" hostel.
Overall I highly recommend.

We booked a private room which turned out to be an apartment on the floor below the main hostel with open plan bedroom, kitchenette, TV, sofa, table and chairs, with separate bathroom including hairdryer, bathrobe and slippers, as well as an entrance hall and balcony. The whole hostel is very clean and brightly painted. We saw two members of staff - but no other guests - and both were very welcoming offering us a juice on arrival and also a traditional liqueur before we departed. Breakfast was self-service cereals and toast with a selection of teas or juice. As we had a late departure on a sleeper train to Sofia we could also store our luggage after check out and have a shower (the shared bathroom facilities were split for males and females) before we departed after a hot day exploring the city.

Although not a central location we were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go including Belgrade Fortress, the Danube, Skadarlija (Bohemian quarter) and Knez Mihailova (pedestrianed shopping street). The free walking tour departing at 11am from Republic Square is highly recommended and takes around 2 1/2 hours.

The main hostel is well signposted and is an upper floor of a low-rise apartment block, clean and modern. We stayed in an apartment they have for couples which was one floor down from the main hostel - clean, bright, spacious and luxurious. Good shower, comfy bed, small kitchen, balcony, aircon, wifi, welcome drink. They gave us a key, d-i-y breakfast of cereals and toast was included, they stored our bags after we checked out and even let us use the showers later that evening as we were about to board a sleeper train with no facilities.

Location is okay, a few minutes walk from the fortress and quite close to the Danube for an evening stroll once we figured out the footbridge over the railway track, and it was simple to find. Not very central, but that suited us as it was quiet - it was about ten minutes walk to either the bohemian district for restaurants or to the city centre. Trams passed the end of the street but we didn't bother using them.

Can't fault this place.

I loved this place. The staff here are super friendly and helpful, it's spotlessly clean and modern with a nice lounge area, with computers, to hang out in.

I was in a single room - I like the hostel "experience" but I like my own space as well - which was clean and comfortable and even had a speaker in it for some music - don't worry you can turn this off!

The bathrooms were, again, clean and modern, and the fact that guests are given bathrobes is a very nice touch.

It's well located for the number 2 tram which basically circles the city. You might need this if you're coming from the train station, but once you're here you'll find everything is within walking distance. I started off at the fortress (about 10 minutes walk from the hostel) and worked my way through the city from there.

Begrade is a great city with really fun, friendly people, and Spirit Hostel reflects that perfectly.

Another reviewer has said that this is hotel quality from a hostel. That's going a bit far, but I've certainly stayed in hotels that were much worse than this for considerably more money. We were in a private twin room. The furnishing was modern and comfortable. The shared bathroom (like the rest of the hostel's decoration) was spotlessly clean and up to date. The dressing gowns are something you don't normally find in low to mid range hotels, let alone a hostel, and are really a bit of fun.

The staff were very helpful, we were given a free welcome drink of rakije and a thorough explanation of where the sights, bars and restaurants were. Staff were also very helpful with tips on how to use the trams, recommending particular restaurants, and booking us a taxi for our early morning trip to the airport.

I was a little worried about the location, as it slightly falls off the top of the tourist map, but you're not more than five or ten minutes walk from the centre and you're very convenient for the fortress.

It really is difficult to find fault with this place. It is just very very convenient and trouble free.

Such a wonderful place! Staff are some of the nicest ones, that I ever met during my travels. They provided me with map, and 20 min introduction about the city, local tips and suggestions. Whenever I needed additional information, they were answering with a smile and patience. In addition, location is very good, in a quite street 5 min from the Belgrade fortress and main bar street. The place itself is very modern and stylish, and spotlessly clean! You even get slippers, towels and robes, included in a price, amazing! The breakfast is simple, but nice, typically hostel style, but also included in a price! WiFi is also for free. I would not hesitate to stay here again, next time in Belgrade. Thank you people, it was great

Room Tip: I was happy to stay a brand new apartment, although somebody cancelled the booking for that day, and...
