We found this place by accident on the main drag of the old city, and ended up falling in love with the owner Aida, and all of her friendly staff! We took her tour of the tunnel of hope and found it extremely enlightening and her frank chill attitude gave a refreshing perspective. The hostel itself has really comfy beds,... More

We had a private room with shared bathroom during our short stay in hostel Vagabond and the place itself wasn't anything special - clean, but we could barely open the door in our room as the floor had some strange shape. Also once you opened the door much of the room would be inaccessible. All in all the layout of... More

The hostel is located in the heart of the city, right on the major pedestrian/shopping street. All major sights are in walking distance. The service was very good, we had to leave during the night in order to catch a flight, they arranged a taxi and woke us up when it was time for us to get going.

There's a note says on the entrance "we are not only a hostel but a family" and they are really like a family. After spending 5 days I already miss them :) In the common room you can always have conversations with other visitors. When you need something stuff helping you whatever it is; for a while I thought they... More

We chose Vagabond after staying one night in a grubby cheap hostel down the street and hearing from our friend about how great their place was. What stood out about Vagabond was the excellent service from all the staff and the owner. The location is right in the middle of everything in a beautiful building. I especially liked the top...

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.

Sarajevo was always destined to be a highlight of my short trip around Europe however this hostel, recommended by a great hostel owner Taso in Mostar, only served to make it even better. Aida, the hostel owner, is a fascinating friendly woman with intricate knowledge of the city and its troubles, gave great information on places to go in the... More
