“Easily one of the best hostels out there”
Reviewed 22 August 2013

I originally stayed at a much bigger (and popular) hostel when I first arrived in Belgrade and left after 2 nights as I found it a bit too crowded.

Luckily, I found this hostel and was impressed as soon as I walked in. The place looked brand new (I believe they just opened in March of this year), very clean and modern. It's a small hostel and I felt at home right away. It's like staying at a friend's house.

It's in a great location, very close to Kalemegdan in a quiet street a couple of blocks away from the main tourist street. The rooms were quite spacious with big lockers/closets. They don't try to squeeze in as many beds as they could like some hostels do. More than enough room to move around even if the rooms are full.

They also have a very fast Internet/Wi-Fi connection, big screen LCD TV, a PC and a small netbook for the guests to use, free drinking water/coffee/tea, fully equipped bathroom.

The owners and staff were very friendly and helpful. They always offer to make you coffee in the morning and always available to answer any questions/give recommendations/etc. Had some really great times hanging out with other guests and staff here and met some really cool and interesting people.

Definitely up there in my list of favorite hostels. I normally don't stay in the same hostel for more than 3 or 4 nights, but I stayed here for 14 nights.

What luck that we found this hostel in Belgrade. Definitely the best hostel i've ever been. Clean, new, good location and very nice staff. It has all the necessities you need and more. Wifi, a pc, a laptop, cold water machine, kitchen etc. If you go to Belgrade you're crazy if you don't stay here! Made me feel at home in Belgrade. Many thanks!

Really the best hostel i've ever been,and believe me,i've been around...
The location is perfect-5 minute walk from the center but yet not in the middle of the touristic madness that can be very tiring-from the window you can see the kalemegdan...The people that run the hostel are very kind and helpful,the house and especially the bathrooms perfectly clean and the prices very good.Felt like home...
The perfect place to stay in Belgrade.

This newly renovated appartment turned into a hostel is the nicest and most comfortable hostel I ever visited (and I have seen a few)! The staff only add to the experience as it is run by three sweet and smiling siblings who help you any way they can!
It is an open and relaxed atmosphere!
The only could-be-bad thing about this place is that is does not have the trashed feel that most hostel have... It feels more like a hotel for the price of a hostel!!!

The hostel is walking distance from city center but in a quiet street. Staff very friendly, patient with chatty guests. Garage service very handy, rooms really nice and new. Another great feature: cute little kitchen and free coffee and tea!

This hostel is perfect for young people who like to feel the spirit of the city and nightlife. Hostel is at perfect location near Knez Mihajlova street, National Theater, Skadarska street (called Skadarlija with beautiful nightlife, restaurants, traditional food and music). In the hostel Friends area you can find a lot of clubs, restaurants, fast-food kiosks and more... Hostel is beautiful, few times i was like "man, this place is better than my own apartment". I was in many hostels around Europe, and all those hostels are too bad, some of them was like a warehouse. This hostel is like a hotel actually. RECOMMENDED!
