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.

... I needed to try and eat something. They cooked a nice hot potato soup with loads of vegetables in it. It was awesome. I got talking to some people of the table. I noticed that a lady was passed out on the sofa next I where we were sitting. I thought she was just tired because her husband was explaining that he lost his card and it had been a long say trying to sort it out. A bit later on that evening I soon realised she wasn't tired she was **** faced. She looked a mess. The ...
... are numerous hostels in Belgrade so this was actually pretty easy. The hostel we found was only a few minute walk from the popular pedestrian only area and the woman who checked us in with limited English, was very friendly. Jason and I tried to arrange transport into Romania, but we needed a phone to do so. This hostel did not have a telephone, but thankfully, we've been in touch with a really nice and helpful guy from a hostel in Romania ...
... Ottoman Turks. There were a few other neighbouring conquerers but I thought I'd just throw in the ones from afar. On one of the hills are bunkers left over from the first and second world wars. At the most scenic part of the park there is a statue called "Victory Monument" raised to commemorate a WW1 victory. Basically a naked man on a pedestal that is placed so close to the edge you can only get a view of his back side. Apparently that makes ...
... the old Yugoslav capital.
After talking with the tourist office I got a bus card to visit some further museums. The card is 40D (.50 cents) and you load it with upto 10 trips costing 72D (.85 cents) each. I put five rides on there for a total of 400D ($4.50)
First I had to figure ...
