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.

... hall styles. We asked for a the garden salad and were promptly given a plate of unchopped vegetables straight from the garden. Definitely a literal interpretation but it was nice to mix it up instead of just having a plate of meat.
We were off to Nis the next day and there were buses leaving almost every hour but our host recommended we get either the 9am or the 4pm since they were the direct buses that didn't stop en route. Apparently some of the other ones take very ...
... and we weren't sure if we were going to make it there and back for dinner. So, we returned to the shopping center of Republic Square to meet some of the group for dinner. We also drove past a building that America bombed in 1999 via NATO. Why? I have no idea. THIS IS WHY WE DON'T HAVE FRIENDS, AMERICA!!
And that was our day. Bus. Bus. And more bus.
And then tomorrow, more bus! But half the journey is in getting there, ...
... thinking, “Wow the future will be sweet, f**k it let’s just start now. It will look amazing when we’re done and will continue to look amazing forever.” Verdict? Not your best decision Belgrade but clearly not your worst. The decision to go to war was definitely your worst.
Speaking of the war, the most confronting and surprising building is not any of the amazing buildings from the 15th and 16th centuries, ...
... I did get pictures of, however, was the Sibinjanin Janko Tower, now known as the Millennium Tower. I knew the photos would be blurry but took them anyway because the tower was so beautiful lit up.
Another tower found in New Belgrade is the Usce Tower, which is the tallest building in Serbia. ...
... tourists in Belgrade around noon. So, after a leisurly breakfast we went up to the top deck to enjoy the sun and the view. I think that staying on the boat was the right choice. We passed, mile after mile, beautiful forests, vineyards, and homes along the side of the river. The boat is very quiet and we just hear the water splashing and the sounds of the singing birds. Every so often we hear an electric freight train as ...
