General Info on Hostels in Belgrade

1. Check out time

Check out time for most hostels in Belgrade is 11 am, but at some hostels, the check out time is 10 am.  Please note that nearly every hostel in Belgrade offers Free Luggage storage before or after you check-in or out. But it's also worth double checking this if you require this service.

2. Free breakfast

Only some hostels in Belgrade include breakfast in the price. If it is included in the price this saves you on the cost of breakfast.

3. Free Wifi

We all need Wifi when we travel. Every hostel will have wifi but some won't have it in the rooms, they just have it in common areas. My advice is to read some reviews on the speed of the Wifi as there's nothing worse than a slow connection.

4. Guest Kitchen

If the hostel you are staying at has a fully equipped kitchen, you can save money by cooking your own meals. Some hostels in Belgrade only have partially equipped kitchens.

5. Costs

In bed in a dorm room starts at €6 per night (normally large dorm rooms), but expect to pay €10 to €14 per night in a medium-sized dorm room (8 to 10 beds). Private Rooms start at as little as €20 per night. Prices at the weekend tend to be 20% to 40% higher as there is greater demand.
