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.

Awesome hostel with a great welcome! Ivan is a legend and very informative about the city.

Beds were really comfy and the hostel is very relaxed and chiller.

The day tour they offer is worth the money and really enjoyable.

One of my favorite places ever, can't wait to go back to Sarajevo and stay with Ivan (my bald brother). Price was great, beds comfortable (cool setup too), stayed in many nights to watch the World Cup in the bar/common area with the other guests and hosts. Bathrooms, especially the shower area, were a bit small though. Location was great, walking distance to restaurants and the city center. Be sure to take the driving tour with Almir, that was amazing. Also be ready for a shot when you walk in.

staff were lovely, understanding and very helpful. Everyone spoke English. Even though we didn’t realise we had to check out at a specific time, the owner was extremely kind and understanding, didn’t get angry or rude. They drove us to the airport for a discounted price and were very informative about where to go out, what to see and where to eat. Very proud of their past and eager to share their story. Amazing experience.
