Liked: I was received very warmly by the host and made to feel at home immediately. The hostel itself (the part which I saw, at least) was housed in a large top floor apartment. I had use of the whole dorm that night and slept very well. Nice bathroom and the facilities in general were excellent. Good location for exploring the town centre. Hostel easily reached by bus from train and bus stations if you don't fancy walking down the long boulevard. Wish I could've returned for a few extra nights at Hostel Mali so I could've explored Novi Sad and the Danube at a more leisurely pace!

Disliked: Helen left no negative feedback.

Liked: An apartment at the top of a building. I was the only person staying at the hostel so had full run of the place. Even the staff wasn't there except briefly. The kitchen was nice and fully equipped. There bathroom was what you'd expect in an apartment.

Disliked: It's a bit of a walk (15 mins) from the train station and the old center. But it's near a lot of shopping so finding a restaurant or market isn't a problem.

Liked: Good place. I got a one-bed private, which is not at the address listed; it's around the corner just a bit. Very close to the main hostel but I never made it over there. This is an apartment with 3 rooms, most of the time it was just me and another really cool gal in the other room, with some dude staying in the other room one night. Good location, comfy room, OK-stocked kitchen, nice apartment overall. Price was decent for the room. Good wifi and a great cafe next door. Nice balcony. Natalija (staff) is very nice. Plenty of plugins for electronics.

Disliked: Kitchen didn't have much - an old bent up frying pan, and there weren't any normal cooking items like a cutting board or spatula which made cooking a bit difficult. The apartment is fine but the only private area - the bedroom - is tiny. Just big enough for the bed, basically.

Liked: I stayed in a single room in an appartment close to the hostel, sharing this appartment with ome couple. It was very independent and quiet. A short walk to the main square. Vladimir was a nice and helpful person.

Disliked: The ventilation for the single room was not to the street but to another bedroom.

Liked: I stayed in hostel Mali for 8 nights and had a really good time. Natalija (the owner) is very friendly and communicative and will help you with anything you need. The hostel itself is located in the centre of the city, it's clean and comfortable. I would definitely recommend staying in this hostel when visiting Novi Sad.

Disliked: Not a thing.
