“Extrimely funny hostel keeper”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2012

Very good position.

Very nice 8 bed room. Big, confortable and with a central table.

Good breakfast (also with chicken patè!!!)

But the best are the hostelkeeper!!! Funny and very helpful! They gave us a very good advice for the parking, that is not exactly safe in Sarajevo.

Booked 4 night stay via hostel's website. Staff was very pleasant and helpful and offered some great advices for Sarajevo sights. We loved retro design of the hostel and the fact it is in town center. Another thing hostel is very clean and they take good care for guest's privacy.

I'm writing review from a lovely coffee shop across the street, getting ready for our departure.

Greetings from rainy but wonderful Sarajevo.

The couple that run this hostel were very friendly and helpful, the breakfast was good, the rooms were spacious and clean and the kitchen and internet facilities were really good. Big common room too. Our favourite part of our trip to Sarajevo was the Tunnel Museum tour that they give where they drive you around the city and show you all the key areas of the war and explain what life was like on a day-to-day basis then - really informative and interesting.

We were recommended this place by our Mostar hostel. We stayed for a night ony, but felt warmly welcomed as soon as we arrived there. The hosts are exceptional people, knowledgable, caring and attentive. They came to get us at the station and offered us breakfast even if we arrived there at 11 in the morning. The place is clean and quiet. The tour is also highly recommended. The owners made our experience in Sarajevo even more intense! Thank you!

excellent hostel surrounded by the vibrant city bars and restaurants. We did the tunnel tour with the owners private car. He explains the war as you drive trough the city neighbourhoods and tells his own experiences as well. Next day he was even so friendly to drop us at the bus station.
Facilties of the hostel are very good as well

The location, price and personality of this beautiful hostel are all unbeatable! I stayed for four nights in the gorgeous single room at the top of the building, fully equipped with a double bed, private bath, personal refrigerator (and flat-screen tv to those interested), and even a pleasant view! The shared areas are very nice too, with a simple breakfast included, though the wireless was spotty at times. Situated on a quiet side road by all the pedestrianized streets of the old town, Residence Rooms was the perfect base camp to explore Sarajevo's amazing restaurants, cafe-bars and history ...just a few blocks from the river, old mosques, synagogue, catholic and orthodox churches, and even the bridge where Franz Ferdinand was killed. Another must-see is the brilliant Tunnel Tour led by one of the owners, who worked in the tunnel during the siege and gives an unparallelled living historical account of the war and life since, block-by-block through the city (really beyond just the tunnel that concludes the tour). I highly recommend this hostel to anyone visiting Sarajevo.

Room Tip: Take the single room up top if you can, it really was a beautiful private space to enjoy the city ev...

I chose this hostel based on other people's reviews here, saying that it's at the central, the staff are friendly and the tunnel tour is good and it has lived up to my expectation, if not more. I didn't look at the photos of the hostel beforehand so when I first stepped into it, I couldn't believe it's a hostel. It's very spacious, very grand, stylish and well-decorated I feel like I am a bourgeoisie living in there. The owner, Sead, said he wants to make his guests feel like home and we told him immediately that we feel like home already! Everywhere inside the hostel is SUPER clean and well-maintained. The breakfast is included and it offers more than what other hostels offer in our Balkan trip. His wife, son and other staff are very hospitable and made sure we have a nice stay.

The tunnel tour (main reason I chose this hostel) offered by Sead is great as he is very knowledgeable and he explains everything in great details. He is also a very interesting person with very special experiences in his life so it's really great listening to his personal stories. What he has talked about is very insightful and has helped me understand more about the complicated history of the country.

As others have mentioned, the bars nearby are noisy at night but I could live with just one flaw - and earplugs can do the trick. If I visit Sarajevo again in the future, I will not choose another place to stay. This is my only choice!
