TravelPod Member ReviewsArkabarka Floating Hostel Belgrade
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 :)
Belgrad heißt übersetzt "weiße Stadt" und gehört zu den größten Metropolregionen in Südosteuropa. Aufgrund der …
... no music anywhere. It was rather dull.
But luckily the conversation wasn’t. I met some really interesting Europeans. We stopped off at two bars and two floating nightclubs. We received shot at each and got to taste the local, lethal spirit. I didn’t really enjoy the floating nightclubs, mainly cause the music sucked and it was so far away from everything else. So the guide took me back to my hostel. Overall a very good night indeed! ...
... to Belgrade and checked into the hotel he reserved for us. We arrived a few hours before Marko was free, so we hung out in the room and I walked around the area of the hotel a bit.
We met Marko at about 9:30 and decided to go for dinner. We chose a higher end restaurant about a 15 minute drive away. As soon as we sat down, Marko set the rules. He said we were his guests and as long as we'd be together in Serbia we weren't going ...
... day we'd arranged for an overnight trip to Novi Sad. The hostel in Belgrade kindly agreed to look after our bags so we packed our day bags and headed to the train station. After a 2 hour journey on an ancient train we'd arrived and caught a bus in the direction of our hostel. Following the instructions given to us we hopped off at the 3rd stop and proceeded to walk the 'few metres' to our hostel. After walking around in circles we admitted we couldn't find the hostel so ...
... br> I got to Hostel M at 2am and checked into my single room. There was an old man at reception, and by that I mean "sleeping on the couch in the lobby". He spoke no english whatsoever, so that made it difficult to get the checkin done. And I really just want to go to bed. Since I only have one full day in Belgrade, I’m going to go on a walking tour of the city. Hopefully that will show me enough that I don’t feel like this ride was a waste of ...
