“Hostel Ville, Sarajevo”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

Great service. Amazing rooms and bathrooms, everything is practically new. The rooms are very tidy and spacious. There is a huge living room with a flat screen TV and couches. There are 3 dining tables and a lovely kitchen in which you can find anything you need including free tea and coffee. Not everyone can get in because there are doors with an intercom which is amazing. There is always someone there so you can come and go whenever you want which is also really good especially for young people.The staff was amazing, Edin and his brother told us everything we needed to know and were very helpful, kind and polite... The hostel is not far from the old town. If ever coming back to Sarajevo will definitely stay in hostel Ville.

Great hostel with only 10 minutes walking distance to centre of sarajevo. Bedrooms are spacius with really comfortable beds and clean bathroom. The best part of the hostel is a lovely dining and living room where you can spend your free time watching tv, playing games or drinking coffee. Edin, the host, is really helpful and will tell you anything you want to know or see in Sarajevo.
Definitely a great place to stay in Sarajevo!

I spent 2 nights with some friends there. It was a great atmosphere, nice interior, all very new and very clean (beds, bedrooms, bathrooms). There's a chilly living/dining room for all travelers with a large TV. (see the pictures) Edin and his staff make excellent breakfast and have a lot of interesting stories to tell and tips to share. If you are lucky, you can engage him as guide through the city. :-)

I stayed there for 3 nights and I felt great.
Hostel is only 8-10 minutes away from old Town - city center and it is bit up hill but whole Sarajevo is in between hills so it is not an issue and taxi ride from center is only 2 Euros.

Most important is that hostel is very clean, has bathroom on every floor, nice terrace with great view on Sarajevo and nice garden.

Staff is very warm and they all speak great English with Bosnian accent which is kinda sweet :D

Hostel Ville is only nine minutes walk to the center - old town of Sarajevo, which allows you to see and feel the atmosphere of the real old town, see the smallest (and crazy) two-way streets and old Bosnian houses where locals live which somehow gives you a feeling that you are one of them. The advantage of the Hostel Ville being not directly in the center is that it offers silence (no noices from trams and parties) at night and therefore your sleep quality is guaranteed.
The hostel itself is new and modern, offering every dorm room a private bathroom/toilet. Rooms are quite big with big comfortable beds (i am insisting on beds and sleep because for me sleeping during sight-seeing travels is very important)!
And yes, I have to highlight the terrace of the hostel which allows you to enjoy a beautiful view over old town of Sarajevo!!! At the end, I had a feeling that I am at home :)
I kindly recommend this hostel to anybody who wants to enjoy their staying in Sarajevo by getting more for less money!
