The staff at Vagabond was so welcoming! I loved how close it was to everything, you literally walk out of the door and you are right near historical sites, shopping, and eating. One of my favorite parts was the exhibition of photos that they had displayed in the common room, where we were able to buy some of the prints!... More

I was travelling with my class and spent 5-6 days in Sarajevo. Vagabond is amazing, the staff is friendly and will answer any questions you have. The beds were comfortable, home away from home. It is also in Old Town really close to great food places and shopping centers.

We stayed there two nights, and all 14 persons were satisfied with hostel as well as with hosts. Location can't be more central, it's in downtown in main street. Rooms are big, common room is nice with cheap beer, bathrooms are clean, and stuff are very helpful, l highly recommend this hostel.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Vagabond is located at a ,,prime" location, in the very epicenter of all activities, in the central pedestrian zone of Ferhadija Street. We are less than 50-step walking distance from the old town area - Bascarsija, Turkish Ottoman-style bazaars, numerous restaurants and cafes. Despite of this, Vagabond is proud to be able to offer a perfectly quiet and calm refuge from both day-time and night-time street noise, which makes it a perfect choice of urban nomads. We are new and unique Hostel at the best location in Sarajevo. Our completely renovated premises with spacious and airy rooms, new bathrooms, and fresh aromatic linens are complemented by exceptionally comfortable ambient and fully committed staff. Vagabond Hostel offers tens of different services and tours, varying from city sightseeing to real little adventures. What is special about each and every of these, and which makes us very proud, is that they are unique and non-commercial, plus absolutely adaptable to your particular wishes and preferences. It could be anything from trout fishing, wild horse photo-safari, rafting, mountain hiking, horse riding school, skiing, cooking local meals, learning about local culture, people and history, or visiting pubs and shopping centers. Please let us know about your wishes and we will make them come true. ... more   less
