Great location on the river with a good deck out the back. Quick walk down to where the floating clubs are.. would definitely stay here again. Also staff were really helpful and sorted our onward transport plans for us!


Fantastic hostel in a peaceful and beautiful location. The mosquitoes are very active, but my room had both Raid and a mosquito net. The staff was fantastic and gave THE BEST recommendations for things around town. Will absolutely come back.


It is supposed to have lockers (it says so in the facilities section) but they told us they don't have any. Other than that, it is a very good hostel.


Our overall experience was very good. A very nice hostel! With a beautiful location. Long away from city centre though. Nice staff - but they were busy. Understaffed and not all spoke english. It took 1 and a half hour to check us in. The room was very nice with a very good view. But they hadn't taken out the trash and the room didn't seem complete. Breakfast was fine but nothing fancy. Free bike rental was great!


Had a great time, beautiful location, fantastic staff. No real facilities and the breakfast was very basic, but that's not what you're signing up for here.

Great place, If i had to go back to Belgrade i would go back here. The staff was Very cool, excellent breakfast and also Very clean.


It is a dream place to go in the world. I hope one day you can also watch the sunset over Danube river at the porch of Arka Barka, it feels amazing. The view is really worth millions. Also the people who works there, are one of those friendliest and nicest dudes. Breakfast was included the prices, that cheese-eggy tost call madam crock or something, it was really delicious. It took about 10 min. by bus to go to city center.. All in all it was excellent stay, i will definitely go back again.


Best place to stay in Belgrad, great people, perfect position on the river, nice service, fantastic breakfast!!. Hvala ArkaBarka!!!

ArkaBarka was definitely the best hostel we stayed at during our 1 month long europe-trip. Great location, friendly staff who made us feel at home, cozy dorms, common room and deck. A great place to meet and hang out with fellow travelers since it's so small.


Fantastic Hostel floating in the Danube with nice staff and fantastic sights from its terrace. It is a small and quiet accommodation. The staff is always helpful and you can ask them where to go in Belgrade and ask for some tips to move throughout the city. When we arrived they were already trying to fix the damages caused by recent floodings in Belgrade. So now the Hostel is practically renewed. It is 100% recommendable and good value for your money.
