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 …
... drink it but the doors shutr and we pushed off 15 minutes early. Maybe Serbs are always prompt. It was only as we got on to the runway that my glass was collected by Aleksandra (she had introduced herself earlier) so definately off to a good start. I could not fault service on board the plane. I was offered an iPad for a movie or music, and a proper menu for lunch. The food was Serbian, so a bit more fried than I would have ...
... party city, so that sounded like a good plan.
Lodging was filling up fast and was relatively expensive. The food and drink are really cheap here but we paid 60 euros for a private room in the Art Pop Hostel. This is the opposite of Dubrovnik, where food and drink are really expensive, but in the off season, rooms are cheap.
We got this hostel after yet another mixup from Booking.com. When I click "accept" I'm bound to accept ...
... about $5) Score! Deb & I went to the complimentary breakfast buffet, showered, dressed and hit the road! We had to catch the #23 bus to the parliament building downtown. We walked to the front of the hotel and realized we did not know what direction to go. #23 buses were heading both directions. Uh oh. So we asked around, which direction to parliament? in English politely, pointing questioningly. No one knew. Finally, the lady in a newspaper stand smiled and nodded. I ...
... that is ludicrous!
There are a number of highly-rated restaurants in Belgrade, and Lorenzo and Kakalamba's was our destination for lunch. However, there was another bust today - it was closed for renovations! So none of our plans really panned out today, and we made our way back to our beautifully air conditioned and comfy apartment, and did some more of absolutely nothing at all. It may not seem like it, but some times simply having a big comfy ...
