Really convenient location and comfortable rooms with good wifi. However, like the city has a slightly tense feel. Still, the location is amazing! Right in the centre of the city - very convenient for all the attractions and there's a tram stop right outside that will take you to the trains and buses very quickly.

I was looking forward to stay in Sarajevo, and this was turned our staying even better....

The hostel gave us a warm welcome from one of the staff members - a really nice and helpful fellow. The building was tucked in the city center, near the main street but still it's feels as it's a bit further from it. The location is fantastic. Everything that's happening in the city is close by. The con is that...

I was looking for a place to stay that was close to the centre of the city and was cheap. I got what I wanted, the hostel is 1 minute of walking away from Baščaršija and the room is really cheap. The bed was really comfy and the owner was extremely friendly and helpful. However, the room we got was...

Stayed for 2 nights in a private double room. The location is great, just 1 min walk to the old town streets with all major atractions, restaurants and terraces. Clean and basic. Bathroom was alright, though would need some redoing. There was no common area and lacked a hostel feeling.

Good location and Tony is very friendly but when I arrived at night my room wasn't available. No problem as he put me in a different building slightly uptown. However, rarely is someone on reception, room was good but cobwebs and hairs from previous guest. Also no restaurant as mentioned online. Tony is a nice guy and the location is...

The father and son who mostly run this place - with a few other helpers - are genuinely warm and gracious hosts. Their tours are well-organized and actually interesting. These people clearly enjoy what they do. They're reliable, flexible, and eager to please.
