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.

Ich hatte das Glück mir ein paar Tage frei nehmen und Markus auf eine Konferenz in Belgrad begleiten zu können. Auch wenn er leider tagsüber arbeiten musste, hatten wir zumindest die Abende, um Belgrad gemeinsam zu erkunden :)

Today we are in Serbia- Belgrade to be exact. It is the capitol of Serbia and the former capitol of Yugoslavia. Our included tour didn't begin until after lunch. Many of the group opted for a morning tour of the Serbian countryside with lunch and then joined the rest of us later. Those that stayed onboard were treated to a lecture about the region and its history.
I chose the Green group today and interestingly, so did my ...
... against our passports by guards who boarded the bus. The funny thing is I am getting used to this process now - considering a few days I was just about ready to be sick as we approached the Albanian border. The other factor that seemed to add on a lot of time is the roads - highways don't tend to exist around these places. When we crossed the border it was a few hundred km to Belgrade, which makes you think oh yeah, just a couple of hours, time ...
Cruising through the Iron Gates
A "forced" lazy day as we were traveling the Danube through the famous Iron Gates. Still raining, still very windy and cold but many of the passengers braved the elements and went up to the sun deck to see the most spectacular sections of the river. I enjoyed sitting upstairs, inside in the lounge watching the world go by and ...
... and forth between keeping my eyes closed and catching quick glimpses as not to draw too much attention to myself (I learned that trick from Officer Ron in D.A.R.E class back in junior high.) Adam did the same, but he also kept an eye on our bags to ensure drugs were not "mistakenly" placed into our luggage. That was just what we needed - to be framed for drug smuggling in Eastern Europe.
Upon accomplishing their mission, the naughty ...
