San Art Floating Hostel
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 17 November 2013

I arrived from Sarajevo at this hostel in the middle of November, so maybe it was a bad choice to sleep on the Danube River in this time of year. I'm sure it is a better atmosphere during the summer. The staff was amazingly friendly from the moment I walked in. It was obvious that they did not just want to take my money and leave me on my own. The location of the hostel is extraordinary, right on the river bank of the Danube and five minutes walk to the Ušće shopping center. There is Wi-fi 24/7, the rooms are clean and tidy along with the bathroom. It really felt like sleeping at home. In the morning, breakfast was served with beverage of choice and again I had great company from Saša, Momo and Ivana. For 15 euros a night, the quality of this hostel is by far the best in Belgrade.

It´s a great place to relax, everything its very clean and new, the breakfast is good and the price is excellent if you compare with other hotels in the city. I felt at home and the crew is great, i was travelling alone and they help me in everything i need. The hostel is near the city just 5 min by bus or 20 min walking, the park is beatiful and very safe, i could walk at night without any problem. I was very thankful with Momo and Sasha, the owners, they were so kind with me and took care about everything!!

San Art floating hostel is more like a resort or a summer home than a hostel. The moment you walk in the door you feel welcome by the staff who continuously try to serve you. The hostel is clean, modern and spacious, with a pleasant atmosphere. And the view! One of the best!

The location is a bit out of town, but the city bus drops you off no more than a 5 minute walk away. Or if you prefer to walk its pretty easy and quite relaxing as you walk through the park. And as long as you know where the river is, you should have no problem finding it as it is, literally, on the water. It is just far enough out of the city that it is quiet and peaceful, but close enough that you can take advantage of everything the city has to offer as well. The location is also perfect for a venture to nearby town Zemun.

Free breakfast was definitely a nice treat also as they serve you our drink of choice as you are waiting them to prepare the meal just for you. Wi-fi was quick and reliable.

I have stayed at many hostels throughout Europe and this is the best hostel by far.

Definetly it is the best hostel where i have ever been. Whole team is very kind and friendly. Beautiful views from terrace to Danube river. Breakfasts, that are included into price, are amazing. Interier is cozy and rooms are clean. Staff will help you in any problem or question. Amazing relaxed atmosphere with city hostel comfort.

Perhaps it is not fully fair that I review this hostel as I am used to stay at hotels and therefore do not know what to expect for a hostel. But my family and I chose the place because of the good reviews – and because it could be fun to stay a night on the Danube river.

The staff was very friendly, the terrace on the boat was nice and both the room and the connected bathroom were clean.

But the room itself was not very cosy – I felt like sleeping in a trailer.

The area was not so pleasant. (Some of the boats on the river looked abandoned). You will have to walk 1 km from the parking lots to the hotels and we did not feel that it was very save to leave the car. Even so some locals told us that it was safe – and we paid and old parking attendant 4 euros to look after the car. (And nothing happened).

During night we heard really loud music from a bar on a boat nearby. It continued until dawn – and then some fishermen began fishing just outside the window. They were not very noisy – but we noticed them anyway. To be honest I think I slept 2-3 hours that night.

All in all – this might be a fine place for young people It is low budget prices - but I will not come back.

Spent a few days at San Art, unfortunately couldn't stay longer, during our trip through Belgrade. If we have to make rating from 1 to 10, SanArt would have 11. More than friendly staff (could even call them a family), extremely clean rooms, good food, beautiful location... what else to say and not to be to much. Only - We will come again, for sure. Best regards to Sasha and girls from Gordana and Zoran from Botswana.

Proveli smo nekoliko dana na SanArt splavu/hostelu za vreme naseg proputovanja kroz Beograd, nazalost, nismo mogli ostati duze. Ali ako bi ocenjevali od 1 do 10 - SanArt bi zasluzio 11 ! Vise nego priateljski raspolozeno osoblje (gotovo da bi ih mogli nazvati porodicom), ekstremno ciste sobe, dobra hrana, predivna lokacija,... moze li se reci jos nesto, a da ne bude suvise? Samo jedno - Doci cemo opet, za sigurno. Veliki pozdrav za Sasu i devojke od Gordane i Zorana iz Bocvane.

Room Tip: If you could allow yourself to spend just a few bucks more, please use room with a balcony on the fi...
