“This is the Place.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2014

Hostel Vagabond is the best hostel I've ever visited in my entire life. Why? Because of the extremely helpful, friendly and kind staff.
When you enter and get up to the reception you'll see it written on the wall "We're not just a hostel, we're one big happy family!" and that is completely true. I found a brother, an uncle, aunts and some cousins.
If you're going to Sarajevo and looking for accommodation, this is the place! <3.

The hostel is run by really warm people. We were not finding a place to sleep and they came to pick us up and bring us in person to the cheapest parking in the city. They help you with everything and let u feel like at home. they don't just welcomed us as guests but they shared with us everything they could, The location is excellent, the rooms are clean and u can find all the facilities u need. Don't miss this opportunity to have a really good time in this beautiful city.

Not only a hostel, but a place where you can feel like home.

Spottles, clean, excelently equipped and furnished hostel run by the most friendly staff that you can have and that will help you wholeheartedly regarding any questions.
Such a pleasant stay in the center of town where even though you are situated on the main promenade, surprisingly noise is not something you should worry about.
To all of you who look for a blend of pleasant and useful accommodation, Hostel Vagabond is something you need to experience!

Very true! I had not expected to find such an amazing place when I booked my stay at Hostel Vagabond. The place is run by a team of very warm people who helped me with everything I needed, from tourist information to administrative stuff, welcoming me with an open heart and sharing with me much more than the usual formalities of a hostel stay.

The hostel is located in the very centre of Sarajevo, still very quiet for those who need proper rest during their travel. All the facilities are spotless, and I could enjoy everything I needed during the 4 days I spent there. Big rooms, comfortable beds, internet, all spaces very well taken care of, a warm cup of coffee or tea anytime.

This is the place where I met amazing people, both the staff and other travelers, so don't miss out on this occasion to have a memorable stay in Sarajevo! I will definitely return!

Wonderful location, rooms and staff. Almost certainly the best hostel of my trip (and there were some good ones to chose from!). The budget rooms are clean and tidy and there are also some ace communal areas to hang out in. The hostel is right in the old part of town which is perfect for sight seeing, there are some good panoramic views of the city nearby if you know where to go. The best thing about this hostel though is undoubtedly the staff who are knowledgeable, speak (very) fluent English and super friendly (even by Balkan standards). I know where I'll be staying next time I'm in town ;).

Room Tip: downstairs is warmer in the colder months
