Hostels are fairly widespread throughout Serbia (a dorm bed costs €10–15 a night), with dozens in Belgrade alone. In addition you’ll find freshly decorated, affordable hotels in the major cities (doubles from around €40). Prices for hostels tend to be quoted in euros, while in hotels, you’ll generally be quoted prices in dinars. Rooms in people’s homes (sobe) are less commonly offered than in Croatia or Bosnia-Herzegovina, but apartmani (furnished individual rooms or suites) are available, with doubles starting at around €40.
