No AC in the room, only a ceiling fan which was virtually ineffectual. I was travelling with one other person and when we arrived there was a presumption that we would be happy to stay in a double bed (bottom bunk) together, which we weren't happy about. The hostel wasn't cheap, nor was the room cool so the thought of sleeping side by side was daunting. We had also paid for our own beds, so that's what we expected. Bathrooms were not clean in the slightest. The stench of stale urine, at points was unbearable. It puzzled me because when I went to the toilet a few times someone had just been and mopped / was mopping yet the toilets smelled so bad? Also, no sense of privacy. The toilet doors are sliding with a big gap at the bottom and are right next to the communal area so not much left to the imagination. Unfortunately, I had travellers tummy whilst I was there and it was so uncomfortable. I was travelling eastern europe and it would have been a much more bearable experience at any one of the other hostels I stayed at.

Clean, comfy, full of good grooves, great location. As we were travelling during winter days, the owner gave us a bottle of rakija in case we get stuck on the roads and in need of some wamth. Will never forget that gesture :D Zivili!

Me and my friend missed our bus to Serbia resulting us being very tired and frustrated and so we needed a place to crash for one night in Sarajevo. Another friend of mine had recommended me this hostel so we didn´t even look for any other option. So we arrived....and greeted by Ivan we felt most welcome and could relax and enjoy the welcome shot of rakija (yum!). Ivan gave a lot of tips and recommendations. The hostel itself was very nice, the bed comfortable and bathrooms I can see being a bit crowded during rush hour (but hey, who goes for a shower during rush hour anyways) but they were clean and convenient. I love the bright colours used in interior design too! Will definitely go back and stay there when back in Sarajevo! :)

Booked 2 beds in a dorm room, however when we arrived there were not 2 beds available. Instead we were offered a double bed in a dorm at the same price as 2 single beds. While we were happy to share the bed, we were not happy to be charged the same as people with single beds, when we questioned this with staff they were very unsympathetic and said that this is standard practice at the hostel when 2 beds are booked.
