Had a lot of fun in Sarajevo. For my birthday one of the owners got me a bottle of home made rakia. Did one of the tours that the hostel offers which really taught me about Bosnian history. I'll be back!

Directions from the station were clear and made our arrival really easy mainly due to the information about the tram. The hostel is in a great location in the centre. The hostel itself is really welcoming especially the staff who are more than happy to help with questions and activities in the area. The dorms are really nicely laid out... More

Lovely hostel. Really comfortable beds! Great location in Centre of town. The staff are lovely and very helpful. Really made my stay in Sarajevo worth while - it's a beautiful city and the people at the front desk gave us really good tips like watching the sunset from the castle hill

Is literally at the dead center. I was a bit sceptical when I made the reservation because I couldn't believe that it is on the main street, and so close to everywhere. And it was. Smelled fine, and it was one the cleanest hostels I have ever been. Staff is great, friendly, and for me, what is really important, they... More

Perfect location, comfortable new beds, clean, new facilities, big lockers, helpful staff. Stayed extra nights because it is a great place to relax for partiers or slower paced travelers. Highly recommended.

This place is practically located in the innermost downtown area of Sarajevo on main pedestrian walkway which goes through the heart of the city, a 2-minute walk to the center of Old Town Bascarsija. What's best about this place is, however, the staff - lovely people! You never know what to expect, from spur of a moment acoustic guitar parties... More

The service was greeeat, it was clean, its in the center of the city so everything is close. Most of all I liked staff, they are veeeery polite :) My advice is to book ahead if you want to have your own room, because they have a lot of guests in spring and summer. My recommendations!

A beautiful hostel in the center of Sarajevo. Although the center is not noisy and clean it. Can you book, but does not have. I believe that in June, July and August do not have time to breathe it and then booking is required. Again I go there, if you ever come to Sarajevo. wonderful family atmosphere!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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 is located at a "prime" location in the very epicentre of Sarajevo, in the central pedestrian zone called 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 us the perfect choice for urban nomads. 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 what 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 centres. Please let us know what are your wishes and we will make them come true. ... more   less
