White Owl Hostel is a brand new, squeaky clean boutique hostel in Belgrade's oldest bohemian area.
The hostel is located at Skadarska Street -- this area (and the neighboring alleys) is famous for being the old bohemian district of Belgrade. Nowadays it is one the most touristic areas in the city, full restaurants, bars, and taverns. The hostel is on the second floor of an apartment building. On the first floor of this building there is another hostel with a different name, and they share a garden on the ground floor.
Rooms and Bathrooms
There is a big dorm and two private rooms. Most of the space in the hostel, surprisingly, is taken up by common areas -- which is nothing to complain about, of course, as it only increases the comfort of the guests. The bunk beds in the dorms are very comfortable and clean and equipped with electrical sockets and a small bed lamp. Each guest gets his or her own locker by the door plus a free, clean towel. There are two bathrooms, one with a shower and toilet and the other with two showers and two toilets. So in general they are quite enough for the size of the hostel.
Common spaces are perhaps the best thing about the White Owl Hostel. Or perhaps second best, after its location. The huge living room area is stylishly designed and has a big couch and several arm chairs where you can chill. There is also a TV here. On the other side of the reception desk there is a big dining table and also spaces to sit by the window. Next to this area is the very well-equipped kitchen. Guests can also use the garden on the ground floor to hang out. It is shared with the other hostel in the building, so it can be a good place to meet other travelers, especially when the weather is good outside.
We strongly recommend White Owl Hostel to those who are looking for a clean, comfortable, stylish hostel and who are not so much into the party hostel vibe. By all means, the hostel is in the middle of the action for those who want to have fun. But the hostel itself has a more relaxed and quiet vibe. It is a very pleasant place to prepare your own meal and enjoy. Wi-Fi is good too.
