Do not stay in this hostel if you want to keep your money! Many of my friends lost large sums of money from the lockers and the hostel staff did nothing to get the money back. We never got a chance to speak to the boss, not even on the phone, though we asked fo it several times. Wouldn't recommend...

At first this place seemed really nice. The staff was really kind. It wasnt until a couple of days into our trip when we discovered that significant amounts of money had disappeared from the lockers which suppose to be safe. They also told us that they dont have bedbugs, but it was obvious after 10 out of 15 has some...

This hostel was a horrible experience. I do not recommend staying here. Me and my friends stayed here for a week and every evening there was loud music playing and people shouting. We all got bedbugs (even though they claimed that they check for them every month), and some of us were missing money. It was also impossible to talk...

When I stayed here there was a big party going on, which lasted until 5 am and I could't sleep. I felt unsafe and the receptionist, who was the only staff here was drunk, during the night. I definately do not recommend this hostel.

I really loved my stay here, not just because Sarajevo is such a wonderful place, but the hostel was really great. Everything was just redecorated so the place looked very colorful. There is a large common room that was perfect to chill out and have some laughs with my fellow travelers. There is a nice kitchen and bathroom and everything...

I just spent 8 days at the hostel and I loved it. I honestly didn't want to leave, but my schedule made me. Beds are comfy and showers are hot. The kitchen is great for cooking meals. Location is prime. However the best part of staying here is the staff. I couldn't have asked for a friendlier welcome to a...

All went smooth the rooms' windows are giving to the courtyard so they are silent despite the hectic streets around. The staff was pampering as much as you request and happy to talk about their city and give you tips. Very good value for money. Highly recommended!

It is situated in a city that radiates authenticity combining the well-known spirit of its people for whom pleasure is highly important. "Heart of Sarajevo" is surrounded by some of the best and most popular cafes, restaurants, bars, clubs and exclusive shops, which will for sure help you to find the true excitement and joy of Sarajevo. The main pedestrian zone of Sarajevo is only located a few meters from the hostel, while just a relaxed a five-minutes walk away lies the old city – ‘Bascarsija’ - with all of its traditional fragrant dishes and desserts. This part of the city abounds authenticity due to the presence of the most important religious monuments - Catholic Cathedral, Old Orthodox Church and Bey Mosque. The hostel itself encompasses a 200 square meters area with an eight-bed dorm, a ten-bed dorm, barbecue area and private three-bed room; the later can be adjusted to ones preferences, and transformed into five-bed room if desired. Guests have at their disposal computer with free Internet access, living room, TV, kitchen, bathroom, large terrace, and wonderful garden that can provide some coolness on hot summer days. Here one can escape into serious relaxation and peace while the city beyond is bustling with people.

We hope that you will be able to confide in this yourself. ... more   less
