Where do i start? Our experience at In Old Shoes was absolutely fantastic!! The location is great, rooms / facilities are lovely and clean and more importantly the vibe was awesome! I have stayed in a lot of hostels over the years and so often you feel like a number clocking in and out. This is NOT the case at IOS, its run by Phil who was great and made our stay excellent! It was more like visiting a friend rather than just a place to stay! Book with confidence, have a blast! We WILL be back!


The location is great, convenient for the best parts of town, easy walk from bus station and next to the bus stop going out to the airport. The hostel itself is nice and the staff, especially the owner, are incredibly helpful and do genuinely go out of their way to help you out beyond almost anywhere we've been before. Definitely a good choice for a place to stay in Belgrade


Great hostel located centrally. Run by an Australian who has travelled extensively himself, Phil. He has thought of everything to make life convenient & comfortable. Everything is in good working order. Beds & pillows are super comfy. Good breakfast of cereals & toast. He even has vegemite!. Plenty of varieties of tea to choose from anytime of the day & coffee of course. Phil & his staff are very friendly & full of info. He has buss timetables, maps etc.


Great hostel. Staff helpful and friendly. Great location to visit the city. Definitely recommended.

In Old Shoes was one the best hostels I've ever been. The location is really good. All the facilities were perfect, everything was clean and new. The bathroom is big, and it was clean and dry. The bed, pillow and towel (yes, there is a good towel in the price) were smelling to fabric softener! As if this wasn't enough, the staff is the best possible. It's a small hostel runned by the owner and you can really see that he takes cares of the place.


It's the fourth time I've been here and it just gets better every time! It's not a party hostel, and this is a major selling point. You will definitely get some sleep! The owner and staff will do everything to help you . If you want a small and cosy place where you can easily get to know everyone,and that has everything you need, come here. Great showers, continental breakfast included, air-conditioning as well!
