Great hostel. Great atmosphere. Free tea, which we all drank. Loved my stay here, one of my favourite hostels in Europe.

Great location and friendly staff. Stayed only two nights but had no issues. The front desk called a taxi for me to get me to the airport, which I greatly appreciated. Would stay there again if I ever came back to Sarajevo.

Such a great hostel! Modern and clean and also homely, great location! Super comfy beds!! Only problem is small kitchen which gets busy during rush hour at breakfast ;)

Dear Sophie, Thank you very much for your lovely review. We are aware that kitchen is little bit small but that's why breakfast is for 3 hours, plenty of time for everyone to have a proper breakfast. Thanks FF Team

Franz Ferdinand was absolutely amazing, one of the best hostels I've ever stayed in! Sadat was so helpful with any queries and asking about things to do in Sarajevo, and was also good to just go and chat to about anything! The hostel is right next to the main street and has everything you need inside! I would recommend the Siege Tour that the hostel does everyday as it was really interesting and we got to see and hear a lot about Sarajevo in the nineties.

Never given 100% before, only flaw is that the directions aren't particularly clear. The tram station isn't right next to the bus station, to get to it you have to walk through the university and use the tram station furthest from the uni. Cathedral is the 10th-ish stop and the cathedral is in the other side of the road. Cross the road and walk backwards in the direction the tram came from. You'll find the hostel in the first street/alleyway on the right. The tram will cost around 1.80 BM :)

Great location! Good breakfast ( you can even make eggs). Free coffee and tea all day. Clean facilities. The best part of our stay, though, was the staff. They were so helpful and friendly (especially Sedad :) We loved Sarajevo, would definitely return and stay at this hostel.

Overall, highly recommend this place. Modern, beautiful, comfortable, convenient. The private rooms are a steal. Only complaints were the mosquitos and one staffer who was really rude. But all the other staff were very friendly and helpful!

One of the best hostel I've stayed in. Do yourself a favour and stop shopping around because you won't find a hostel in a better location which will give you more bang for your buck. Spacious rooms, good facilities, very helpful staff. Breakfast is a bit average but it's included in the price so it's actually a bonus. Great stay, thank you!
