Gonzo is a no frills hostel, bit far away from the center and quality in the average but staff is very helpful and friendly as they try to help you in anyway and offer typical bosnian food every morning.

Mr. Fahir is the best host that I had the opportunity to meet on my travels , positive energy and the spirit of the man are amazing. The staff, without any additional requirements, constantly offer extra service, so we had the opportunity to enjoy the authentic Bosnian coffee and sweets every day, we also tasted the local specialties like "'burek'...
