This hostel is great, both location wise and people wise. When we first arrived we checked in and the girl behind the desk accidently picked up my sunglasses, thinking they were her own. She was so apologetic I ended up feeling bad!
The rooms were comfy and pleasant, no air conditioning but we were there in the middle of summer, I can imagine if you go in autumn or spring you would be fine.
The staff we so friendly, it really made the stay nice. I attract mosquitoes like Charlie Sheen to drugs, so the manger wrote down the name of a good antihistamine for me to give to a pharmacist.
On our last night I drank...... allot. The bar is fully stocked (there was remarkably less Four Roses bourbon the day after) and at night the atmosphere is really chilled out and nice, you can talk with other guests too which you don't always get in some places.
The hotel is set in a park, and it's a short bus ride from the centre, or you could walk, either way its quite pleasant.
If you are worried about the hostel being on the river, don't be. It is really secure and once your inside you would really have to concentrate to feel it rocking, if at all.
I would defiantly recommend it again, the people are great and it was a really big part of what made my holiday great.

... for the room, but that's not the case for the hotel or hostel. Twice now, I got a confirmation email and then a couple hours later another one that said "sorry, we're full and we didn't update the website." I was pretty bummed and made Booking.com find a similar room by the train station for the same price. They did right and got us this hostel and will reimburse me the 30 Euros difference. But you just can't trust Booking.com.
... we've had, anywhere in the World. From the moment we walked back in, we were made to feel most welcome, with the manager immediately recognizing us, and pointing out to the owner that we had just been here the other night. Soon after, a complimentary couple of shots of pear and quince raki made their way over to us, and then it was on - course after course of spectacular food!
There did end up being some overlap with tonight's tasting menu and ...
... and spoke to him, he even spoke English! I was so impressed. I gave him the third degree about why he was out at 11pm on a school night, his response was that he didn't have classes at school til the afternoon! (he was literally about 7yrs old) Then I asked him what he was going to do with the money if I buy a "block" off him, his quick response was that it was all for school books. I told him he should NOT give it to his mother, I would rather he went and bought some lollies ...
... the hostel.
Heading back to the pedestrian street I saw the National Bank of Serbia. It mentioned visitors hours so I went inside to see what happens. A guard asked me for ID then gave me a visitors badge.
There was a currency gallery with lots of coins from the Roman period as well as different periods ...
