6th May 2014

Had a great time at Hostelche. Clean, thoughtful and helpful staff, and great location within walking distance of everything from historical landmarks to the best nightlife. Accommodates about 14 people so perfect to have real conversations and get to meet other travelers and form stronger bonds than in bigger hostels. Definitely the place to stay in Belgrade.

Enjoyed Sabatico. Neighborhood is located in a nice neighborhood that is close enough to everything, but peaceful to get a very good sleep. Good wifi and a generous breakfast. Look forward to my next stay.

Great location. Close to Taxim, but in a residential area so you can see real Turkish life. Also you don't hear the call to prayer hear so you can get a peaceful night' sleep if you are not accustomed to this part of Islamic culture. Clean, friendly, and welcoming. Thanks!

Mega hostel, but the staff does a great job making it feel more personal. Hostel bar was one of the better nightlife spots in town. Rooms are very clean, beds are exceptionally comfortable and the ensuite shower for each room is a big plus. Affordable breakfast and lots of other travels to meet. Good wifi in lobby. OK wifi in rooms.

Good hostel with good layout and facilities. Big enough that you can meet people, but not so big that it has no character. Fast wifi, clean, good kitchen, easy walking distance to sights and nightlife areas. Staff was really great, especially Orsi who took a lot of time to recommend locations, things to do, and even a secret hamburger restaurant only known to locals.

15th May 2013

It's a Wednesday night and you're visiting an old friend. After some good conversation some of your friend's friends drop by and soon you're having great conversations with new friends. After a while a skilled guitarist provides a melodic background as you enjoy a drink and swap stories of travel and adventure. This is what it feels like to spend a night in The Purple Goblin. You're having so much fun you wonder if you can extend your stay...

Cool building with an artsy vibe. Big enough to be a mega-hostel, but feels very friendly and a lot of guest-interaction. The girls that work there are really nice and the owner, Anton, is always looking out for the guests. Definitely recommend it!

Really great hostel. The guy who works the front desk during the day was especially helpful and I appreciated his upbeat, friendly demeanor. Really cool guy! Hostel faces quiet side street so good for a good night's rest. Facilities are very clean and nice. Some beds could use a bit of a refresh though, but pretty minor compared to all the other great things.

Great location. Hostel is just the right size where you can meet people in a relaxed way (not like a mega-hostel). Great coffee. Laundry on site. Dustin is always there to help you with anything you might need and also just to relax and hang out with guests. Really cool guy.

Friendz has a relaxed, laid back beach feel. It's an excellent choice for those looking to meet others and party all at a fraction of the price of neighboring hotels. The on site kitchen serves good food (try the mango chicken) and although the hostel gets lively nearly every night, they do a great job at shutting down the noise at 11pm and relocating the party outside to the bars. I had a great time.

Conveniently located close to the main train / bus stations, supermarkets, excellent sightseeing areas, and the best nightlife. The living room is set up in the true hosteling spirit and provides a comfortable, clean, and relaxed environment for meeting fellow travelers. The friendly and knowledgeable staff are also quick to join in the fun which adds to an already excellent experience. They even have an on-site pub crawl director who is excellent at arranging nightlife activities. Thanks!

Booked for three nights, stayed for 10 days. Hostel is just the right size...only 12 people max so you can really get to know other people, but still have a great time. Lots of open spaces for relaxing so nothing feels cramped. Lots of art everywhere, clean, great location, and the staff are very quick to help with anything and everything, but also relaxed enough where you feel like you're lounging and having a tea with an old friend. Thanks Jelena, Bojana, Milos, Mika, Bojan, and Dunja!

The management recently opened a new resort (at hostel prices) which includes ecological activities and a swimming pool in a beautiful area of Turkey that may be the most amazing "hostel" you will ever see.

The hostel is quaint, very well run, fully staffed at all times, friendly, and provides excellent security. The staff go out of their way to help you and make your stay enjoyable. Very short walk to the major tourist areas such as Khao San Road, The Grand Palace, and many great eating areas. Also an excellent (and free) outdoor weightlifting area nearby.
