ArkaBarka Floating Hostel

Hostel Belgrade

Arkabarka Belgrade Hostel was built in 2007 and was a first not only for Belgrade, but the Hostelling world. Arkabarka Belgrade Hostel has managed to keep a sense of space and light while being completely unique by floating on the river Danube! There's also our outdoor terrace; where better to enjoy free breakfast than a few meters from the water?! You'll find ArkaBarka in one of Belgrade's most beautiful and popular city parks, so if you don't feel like heading into town you have the perfect place to pass the day right outside your front door. Belgrade has become famous for its nightlife, so while staying at ArkaBarka it's just a short walk along the riverbed to some of the best bars and clubs in town.
