Loved this place. Unkas is a fantastic guy - so welcoming. The hostel is lovely - very colorful, clean. All of the beds were comfy (I moved around a bit because I was there for a while), particularly one which was like a cloud. When we moved upstairs, he had a full house, so I got to sleep on a double bed, usually for couples. My only warning is don't jump into the shower straight after someone else!!!!
We had a great stay at this hostel as it was a brilliant location, clean and our host was extremely friendly and even gave us some local delicacies to try we would definitely recommend staying here.
Really nice owner, super comfy beds and extremely close to everything in town = pluses. Minuses, very quiet, newish hostel. No common area except a windowless room/bar that is smoke-friendly so you can't just sit in there and chillout even if u wanted to because you can't breathe. Bathroom not great and rarely enough hot water. All things that could be improved, and if so will stay again, as Sarajevo is a really cool city.
Urkan is an absolute legend. He takes everyone out for dinner and shows them where to go out. He tells you really interesting stories about what he and the country has been through. Great hostel.
Definitely stay here if you are visiting Sarajevo. The place is clean, the beds are comfy, the location is perfect and the owner and staff are amazing people. Go to the places the staff recommend to eat, the food is really good. I had a great time and would recommend anyone to stay here.
