Not much to add here. Unkas is a great host and very helpful in planning excursions, side trips, and onward travel. Beds are big and comfy, and location of the hostel is great... five minutes from main center of the city. If you stay here, you MUST go on the tour given by Unkas' friend. The €25/50 Mark price tag may seem intimidating, but I can tell you it's well worth it. For the price, you're out and about for around 4-5 hours. Transport and entry into Tunnel of Hope museum (a must!) included. The guide was alive and living in Sarajevo during the 44 month siege and crossed the 800m tunnel of hope himself. You also go to the old Ottoman barracks and abandoned Olympic bobsled track, both places with amazing views and history that would be very difficult to get to otherwise. Highly recommended!!!
