“Great hostel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

Great hostel in walking distance to the old town. Nice and clean rooms with spacious bathrooms (private bathroom in each dorm). Very kind and helpful staff, who do everything to make your stay pleasant! I will definitely stay in Hostel Ville again if I come back to Sarajevo!

I stayed there for 3 nights and I felt great.
Hostel is only 8-10 minutes away from old Town - city center and it is bit up hill but whole Sarajevo is in between hills so it is not an issue and taxi ride from center is only 2 Euros.

Most important is that hostel is very clean, has bathroom on every floor, nice terrace with great view on Sarajevo and nice garden.

Staff is very warm and they all speak great English with Bosnian accent which is kinda sweet :D

Hostel Ville is only nine minutes walk to the center - old town of Sarajevo, which allows you to see and feel the atmosphere of the real old town, see the smallest (and crazy) two-way streets and old Bosnian houses where locals live which somehow gives you a feeling that you are one of them. The advantage of the Hostel Ville being not directly in the center is that it offers silence (no noices from trams and parties) at night and therefore your sleep quality is guaranteed.
The hostel itself is new and modern, offering every dorm room a private bathroom/toilet. Rooms are quite big with big comfortable beds (i am insisting on beds and sleep because for me sleeping during sight-seeing travels is very important)!
And yes, I have to highlight the terrace of the hostel which allows you to enjoy a beautiful view over old town of Sarajevo!!! At the end, I had a feeling that I am at home :)
I kindly recommend this hostel to anybody who wants to enjoy their staying in Sarajevo by getting more for less money!

We spend 2 nights at this hostel in Sarajevo. It is a great place to stay! The dorms are very!! spacious and clean, as are the 'private' bathrooms every dorm has. The common room is great and again very spacious and the terrace has excellent views over the old town of Sarajevo en provides a beautiful view of the sun set!

The staff of the hostel was very kind and helpfull and made our stay really pleasent!
