Nice and clean place with the most aproachable and friendly staf you have ever seen. If you ask him, the owner will brew you a tasty traditional coffee which is an experience all by itself, he also drove us whwn we needed to get something, and always made sure that we have all that we need.
Comfortable beds, wireles internet, clean bathrooms, free slippers, and lots of laughs. :)

I was in a Gonzo Hostel with my boyfriend. Hostel is situated at some distance from the city center, but it's easy to get there by public transport.The area is quiet and pleasant, and there are some pubs and supermarket near the hostel.

Our room was clean and comfortable with very comfortable bed. The same with bathroom. There's also wi-fi internet. The only thing that was missing was a shower curtain.

In a very attractive price of our double room was also breakfast.

Host is an amazing man. Very friendly and helpful. Constantly asking if everything was ok and still smiling. At the end of the stay we got from him a small gift.

I'm delighted with the atmosphere that prevailed in the hostel. I'd go back there with great pleasure.

In this cute Hostel, 15 minutes away from the old center, there's good Hygiene, nice and helpfull staff and rooms which are really good compared to others in the same price-level. The Hostel offers extra's like diner - when you ask for it -, free Wi-Fi internet, slippers for in-house and a good, free breakfast and an awful lot of service for undertaking nice excursions.
The owners of the Hostel are always willing to help you and although some of the stuff do not speak English (don't worry, every receptionist does), they are overly friendly and smiling all the time. Hostel Gonzo is one of the better spots to discover town, since it is close to the center, the airport and all the atractions around the city, and especialy it's balcony, out-side terace and closeness to a local market and supermarket.

Whenever in Sarajevo with a small Budget, a willingness to experience the Hospitality of the local population and the will to discover the city and it's surounding, Hostel Gonzo is the place to be!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a Balcony, there are several, but not all of them!

Although it's location is a little bit out of the centre, this hostel is a really good place to stay when you are visiting Sarajevo. Actually it's quite nice to be a out of the city centre; here you will be able to experience the real Sarajevo and not only the tourist part (which is easily reachable by tram, 15 minutes). The hostel is located nearby a commercial center with market for delicious and cheap veggies and fruit (Okata).
The owners are very friendly and helpful and with their help you will be able to get the best out of your time! Their service made our stay, and I would defenitely go back!

Owner and staff were really friendly and approachable. There were not any problems. Anything we wanted he bring us or told us where can we find it (or he drove us there). Rooms are very clean and comfortable. Public transport is 1-2 min walk from hostel. I recommend this hostel to everyone who want to come to Sarajevo and pay less money and not be disappointed with accommodation.

Since I go to Sarajevo very often,each time I stay in hostel Gonzo, because of its location, environment, very low prices, and great quality of the service. I would recommend it to everyone. My room was clean and tidy, and with nice breakfast. Its few minutes to public transportation, and 10 minutes from city center. Few minutes from hostel there is a great food market as well as supermarket, which is very important to note. Staff was approachable and very nice.
