Nice location and easy to find, Friendly staff, nice clean comfy rooms,coffee/tea available on the hall for breakfast, nice clean bathroom with shower:)) Location Staff Bathroom Room Value for money.. Thaks for everythıng you made my trıp marvelous...


The staff-member of the hostel was smoking in the public kitchen, three feet from me, while I was preparing food... I think that's disgusting! Apparently smoking is allowed in the kitchen... Our room had it's entrance in that same kitchen... so in the early morning we could smell cigarette-smoke in our room, coming through the door (closed, but not air-tight). Not something I like when sleeping out! The location is pretty good, only minus was the little old elevator, wich we didn't totally trust.

Owner Comment (Hide)
Thank you so much for your comment. Unfotunatelly, I as an owner have not met with you at the hostel but I do have to tell you that you are wrong about the sign in the kitchen. The black sign in the kitchen indicates a smoking area where as white signs with a red line across it indicates non smoking areas (that sign was in your room). Also, if anyone smokes outside of the smoking area alarms go off and they haven't gone off. We have never had such a complaint but your comment is of value.


Enjoyed our stay here; good location and good price. The staff are extremely helpful too.


Really great place. Me and my boyfriend stayed here for 3 nights. It was perfect. Location was excellent, it was center of the touristic places. Stuff are friendly and they helped us how to travel the city. And the price was really cheap for this hostel. The entrace of the apartment is not very nice but histel is no about the entrace

This is a great little hostel right in the centre of Belgrade and it's within walking distance of the train station. We had a private twin room that was really clean and spacious and the bathrooms were also really nice and clean. There is a small kitchen with some hobs and there is washing machine that you can use for a small extra charge. We would definately stay here again.


We really enjoyed our stay at this hostel, and we would love to come back. It's very nice and clean and the location is great. Ksenija is really nice and helpfull, and a great host! The AC broke in our room (things like that can happen), and she did everything to fix it as soon as possible and compensated us for the night it didn't work.


Probably as central as you can get in Belgrade, this small hostel converted from a flat is close to all the main attractions downtown. It was clean, tidy and the service was very good. Cons: it can be noisy as it's close to a main bus/trolley route, short opening hours for reception.

Thank you so much for your comment! We are very sorry about the noise but yes, that's the downside of being at The Republic Square. We never had complaints about the noise but your comment will help us to improve in some way for sure! Guests are alway notified of the reception hours prior to their arrival and with that being said we always encourage guests to notify us of their arrival time but even if they forget our staff takes care of it on time.


The hostel was amazing. It was very clean and charming. The room was so big and comfortable. The location was excellent. But the best of the hostel was the staff. The owner was a friendly and so helpfully woman. She made us fell like in a house. The guy on the recepcion was extremely funny. In general it is a very nice place and the best choice to spend a couple of days in belgrade. For sure, if we come back to this city we will go to the same hostel.
