... experience... We spent the rest of the evening drinking with the other guests before calling it a night as the rest of the travellers headed out. I do wish that I could have spent another night or two in Belgrade, really experience it properly. I love the roughness of the city.. There's something about it, like there is this reluctance to conform to anything other than want it is. I will be ...
... meal but not before we did the go pro challenge on an empty stomach. This included drinking as many beers as possible in an hour and putting back a few double shots of stolichniya Serbian liquor. I puked after the third shot for the first time in a long time so I guess I lost the game. Serbians are also big fans of meat which was perfect for us. The breaded steam stuffed with cheese was delicious. Once drinking time rolled around ...
... 6 each you say? Well why didn't you just say?! Letting the fear/excitement subside a little, we then decided that perhaps the extensive journey to Montenegro wouldn't be worthwhile due to it's exclusion from the pass and unknown costs. Arriving in Belgrade late in the afternoon, we were met with a shabby looking train station which probably hasn't been changed since the dawn of communism. We got off the train and followed our directions up the hill. At the ...
... when Tesla was working for Edison Labs and was tasked with designing the direct current lightbulb (later named the "Edison Bulb"). Tesla rose to the task and designed the lightbulb, but was more personally interested in the merits of alternating current. Edison used Tesla's design modifications and claimed them as his own patents which ultimately led to Edison submitting candidacy for Nobel under the guise of Tesla's original work. Tesla's own inventions at ...
How has this hostel rated in the past?
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.
