Great hostel, comfy beds with good pillows (important), quiet rooms with AC, and really helpful staff with loads of info. Common room always buzzing qith peeps to meet and greet. Wish we had stayed a little longer as the city here is actually pretty amazing as well with an amazing story behind those coming to life buildings.

Great hostel - very central location in the centre of Sarajevo, clean rooms and bathrooms, free tea and coffee, very helpful staff who were able to arrange a taxi for me to the train station and provide information about nearby exchange offices. Would stay here again if I come back to Sarajevo.

To be honest, I didn't expect a hotel like this. The rooms are quite clean, so are the common bathrooms. The only problem the town suffers is there is no tap water between 12:00 AM and 5.00 AM, which you don't really need anyway if you'll be sleeping. The staff is very nice and friendly. There is always someone staying... More

Staff were amazing, helped us a lot and we even saw them in Mostar later on our trip, was really nice to see them. Hostel was great, slept very well, lounged out and planned my trip in their amazing common area with the comfiest sofas! I can't wait to come back! Right in the centre of town, and i loved... More

Stayed here for two nights on our way to Mostar and Croatia. The steep climb upstairs is the only downfall but what can they do about that - move the hostel!?!? No! This place is a lovely hostel in a great location, the staff are amazing especially Nermin, he looked after us for both days we were there and is... More

The absolutely and aways helpful and friendly staff is the crown jewel of this place! I had a private room, which at 20 euro I found pretty good value, especially that one could hardly be any closer to central Sarajevo and the bazar area. The wifi is good, the lounge are is nice and the kitchen has all one needs.... More

This hostel has one huge drawback: there is a smoking area immediately attached to the common room, and smoke inevitably seeps in and it is basically as though someone is in the room smoking; most of the staff smoke too. Another smaller issue is that you must remove shoes to enter. This is strange and annoying to me, especially when... More

Sarajevos a small city anyways so walking around isn't a big deal, staff was helpful in figuring out laundry and some bar choices on a Thursday night. Didn't supply locks on lockers and 1 bathroom for potentially 10 people wasn't ideal. Bed was ok, no water after midnight either, but that's a sarajevo thing.

Spent a few nights here with a friend this past summer. Great location. Friendly staff. They helped us organize tours around the city, and were very knowledgeable about other events and exhibits going on. Great common area, balcony for smokers, lots of books and DVDs. Only issue is that there is no water between 12am and 5am but this affects... More

We arrived from the train station and took the tram to this hostel. We arrived before noon, but were still able to check in and leave our bags there, until our rooms were ready. The front desk staff were really nice and friendly. There are quite a few flights of steep stairs to get into this hostel, but it was... More
