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.

After some confusion trying to read a map in Latin against street signs in Cyrillic I got back to the hostel and hoping for a coffee entered the kitchen. The group of polish

Simon writing... After spending three months in Croatia it was time to get a move on and see some other countries before the summers over. We left pula in Croatia on an overnight bus to the Serbia capital Belgrade. It was a ten hour bus journey which would have been very peaceful apart from the border crossing, everyone on the bus had their passports checked and handed back to them apart from us, we were taken to a small control booth in the middle of the night ...
... Blair had a massive "minced meat" steak stuffed with cheese. Our friends had a large meat platter. I fell in love with their shopska salad which consisted of tomatoes, cucumber, red onion and a salty, creamy cheese. It was delicious.
At 11:30 pm, we headed to a night club on a converted barge on the river. This was, apparently, the latest hot spot and the place was packed. I did not pack "clubbing" clothes or heels so I felt like ...
