Hostels in Belgrade are an excellent choice when deciding what kind of accommodation to pick out in Belgrade. It's especially true if you are traveling on a low budget.

Table of Contents

There are vast offers of hostels in Serbia's capital. Most young people from all over the world prefer to opt for this type of accommodation.

There is a good reason for this preference. The main reasons are low accommodation prices, a “domestic” atmosphere, and friendly staff.

Comfortable, clean, well-positioned, and preferably cheap accommodation is every traveler's desire. 

Apart from these reasons, most hostels can boast of cleanliness, quality of accommodation and service, and above all, safety. Find out if Belgrade is a safe destination?

Hostels In Belgrade By Location

Belgrade has several small districts and municipalities. Each of them has its distinct character, which makes exploring Belgrade fun. It's a beating heart of the city.

When deciding on a hostel location in Belgrade, it will depend on your interest and what you plan to see in Serbia's capital. Hostels are ideal for a two-day stay in the Old Town district.

When choosing the best location of Belgrade hostels, Old Town (Stari Grad) district will be first on the list. It's a beating heart of the city.

Stari Grad stretches around the centuries-old Belgrade Fortress, set where the Danube and the Sava meet, offering an incredible view from the surrounding park. 

Nearby Republic Square is home to the National Museum and the National Theater, while the pedestrian Kneza Mihaila street offers fashion and souvenir shops, cafes, and bars. 

Numerous restaurants with international cuisine also differentiate the area. If I add to that the bohemian street – Skadarlija, it's clear why a first-time visitor should look for accommodations here.

Summer Hostels in Belgrade

In Belgrade, the summer can be boiling and sultry in July and August. Many Belgraders and tourists flock to the rivers, the Sava, and the Danube.

The life lands towards the rivers, where refreshment is easy to find. The confluence of the Sava and Danube rivers is a perfect place to find a lovely floating hostel on the rivers.

I recommend two hostels. Both are floating, as they are on the Save and Danube rivers.

Arkabarka Floating Hostel
Located at the bank of the Danube River, Arkabarka is a charmingly unique boat hostel & guesthouse in Belgrade. Surrounded by the river on one side and one of the most beautiful central parks of the city on the other, the place is a remarkable retreat for urban people, nature lovers, bicyclists, backpackers, and independent travelers.
