Amazing view, great atmosphere, clean rooms, hospitable and friendly staff and easy transportation( with bus and free bike). We spent great time in the hostel and definitely recommend it.
ArkaBarka, localized near the city center, is a perfect choice for people with a touch of artistic soul. We've enjoyed every moment - starting from warm welcome, through the professional tourist information provided by friendly staff, ending with delicious breakfast served on the floating terrace. We highly recommend ArkaBarka and surrounded by the music Beograd itself.
We liked the style in this hostel (wood and glass and they are just opening their second building in same style), its location is superb on the river and the staff is friendly and very helpfull. We just stayed one night on a stopover to Istanbul but enjoyed it. Hostel arranged a pick-up taxi for €18 and that worked fine.
Just amazing stuff - always ready to speak to you. Very friendly, chatty and helpful. It takes about 20-30 minutes to walk to the city, and it's a nice walking area.
In the hallway and terasse lots of bugs because of moistness from the river Weak air condition in the room
Very nice situated right on the river Danube in the middle of nice park. To go to the city is preferable to use bus or to rent bikes on free or to rent a boat that is the most exciting possibility to discover also Danube island and nice nature there and moreover to see the fortress Kalemegdan from the river side.
The hospitality of the staff, the chill-out factor of the hostel, the breakfast included in the price, the hassle-free wifi connection, the boat ride to the beach are just words. You have to be there. We were there for a bachelor party and we approve ArkaBarka!
The fact that we had to leave and go home.
Staff was amazing and a hostel which is floating on the lake is pretty cool. Facilities are clean and comfortable. Free bikes!
Maybe it can be considered bit far from center but the facilities provide free bikes so that won't be a problem. Plus, you can go easier to Zemun by Arka Barka.
It is more than a hostel. Amazing view, good wi-fi connection, clean rooms, hospitable and friendly staff and easy transportation. We spent great time in the hostel and definitely recommend it.
Fantastic staff, facilities and location and very cool that it is on a pontoon floating on the Danube with a gorgeous view.
Mosquitos at night but that is of course no fault of the hostels
This is an excellent place for voyagers who are looking for peace just beside heart of a beautiful central european city! Arka barka crew is very kind and eager to make your stay enjoyable and warm. Don't hesitate to book your room!
great idea to have a hostel on the danube..nice people giving really nice service.in this month jun fest is on just right next door so it makes itr more fun...
a bit hard to find
Location overlooking the Kalemegdan fortress, lovley staff, good coffee
staff were lovely the manager was very helpful.bikes were very useful, lovely being right on the river
maybe a bit expensive .breakfast was very basic
The feeling of staying overnight at a floating hostel (the first and unique in whole Europe) ! The hospitality and the atmosphere !!! Highly recommended to everybody, who's looking for alternative experiences away from common sense and formalities !!!
I like a lot this hostel's location, along the river, peaceful, very green and it is close to the center. What i like most is hostel's employees!!they are very friendly, always ready to help, they make your stay enjoyable:)
The smell.rooms are small.
Great and clean room, friendly staff. Spectacular views of the Kalemegdan
When you have the car and a lot of luggage, it will be a challenge as you have to leave the car about 1km from hostel ...
-Extremely friendly and helpful staff and owner - Amazing location inside a park, on the river, especially running away from the rush of a big city - Love the fireplace - Free Sauna - Free Bikes - New and comfy rooms and bathrooms
Been at Arkabarka few days ago and gotta say we loved it there. My friend and I enjoyed the view and little walks to the center. Belgrade is a must see city, with hyperactive nights and warm days. As for the hostel, it was clean, breakfast is OK, shopping center for additional supplies close by and staff very friendly and helpful. My warmest suggestion to all who plan to visit Serbia and Belgrade.
Very kind staff, excellent location, welcome drink :)
Friendly place. warm welcome.
Bathtub sink was clogged. Shower cabin was broken. Smaller rooms are very small and uncomfortable. Looks a bit neglected.
Staff was generally kind. I suppose it is a nice place if you choose the "right day."
When we stayed at this hostel, a group with about 30 young people were staying and holding some kind of seminar in lounge area. We were pretty much the only "non-group" guests on that day. So we had no access (I suppose if we tried to push in, it was not impossible, but all the space and seats were completely occupied and they were really into seminar so in reality it was impossible) to the lounge area facing the river. The event continued almost until midnight with lound music and loud voices. So even after we came back from the dinner in town, we could't relax in lounge area. We basically stayed in a small dormitory-style room all the time and no possibility to enjoy otherwise the nice ambience of hostel's public space (which kind of reminded me of my college days). This is a hostel without conference facility, so the management should not have allowed us to book the room on that day when only 1 or 2 rooms are available for "non-group" guests. Or they could have informed us that there will be a large group occupying the place. It was better for both the group members and us (so they could have all the space and avoid the complaints from annoying guests like us). Also there was no soap in the dispenser and the toilet stopped flushing. No discount offered from the hostel.
Extremly friendly and helpful staff, great view from the rooms and lobby. If you visit Belgrade you must stay here at least one day and wake up against the river...
Mosquitos and cold bathrooms
Really liked the hostel. The location is very beautiful. The friendly staff. Cosy rooms. Silence. Thank you very much for all.
Location is nice but a lil bit far from city center. The great thing is that they provide bycicles.
No obvious minuses.
Amazing view, hospitable staff. It was a wonderful experience.
