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 leaving Mount Avala, we drove to Kosmaj Gora (another small mountain near Belgrade) to visit Zoran and Dunja's friends, Vlada and Vera. On the way, we stopped to pick up some BBQ. This was not like picking up BBQ at home. This BBQ was made of freshly ...
... delicious !
Now that we visited nearly all Belgrad, we rested at the central fountain (where we had free drinking water, and where two hooks were catching our curiosity)., where we met our two old Dutch mates from the train ! Wahoo !
We then went to the train station with our two local friends, who had to take a train back to their own town (Novia Sad, a very charming town in Voyvodina, the autonomous province in northern Serbia).
... museum, it was less than a euro to get in and the tour guide told us all about the history which was cool, there's a fair bit about United in the museum (they were the last team the busby babes played before the plane crash and we've played them since in the Super Cup in 1991 for example) so that was cool. Went on an underground tour of the city in the afternoon and finished that up with a red wine in an underground winery (it was actually red ...

People split thereafter. Arjan and I went to the nearby Cafe Theatre to do what Serbians do: have an ice cream, chit chat and let life drift by. The 'Golden Girls' congregated at a nearby table. The Aussie blokes spent time at the ...
