wonderful new house. really creative and fun interiour. all about 1914. the staff was helpful and welcomjng. our floor was clean. we stayed in a four bed doorm. it was small but with just enough space for everybody. beds were huge, and the bathroom was a nice one. breakfast was nothing big but ok.
This is a vrey good hostel. Staff is way nicer than you can expect. They are very helpful, always smiling. I asked so many questions and they never made me feel like I was asking too much. Beds are very comfortable, lockers are big enough, there is good wi-fi and location is perfect to get anywhere on foot. Perfect place to stay.
Everything was great! The only thing was that the rooms are a little bit small, but the extremely comfortable beds more than made up for it. Everyone was super nice and helpful too. Will definitely recommend.
I have absolutely no bad words for this hostel, not even neutral comments. Everything about here was awesome. If you are in Sarajevo, here should definitely be the place you stay. One of the best i have seen around Europe :)
Great wifi in room. Nice kitchen. Locks on doors and lockers. Bunk beds are the cubby kind with your own outlet and light. Pretty much everything you'd want from a modern hostel.
I had a fantastic stay here, I would recommend this hostel to anyone and everyone. If I'm ever in the area again, I'll stay here again no doubt.

The staff has been extremely helpful and friendly. Explained everything, gave recommendations. The facilities are amazing, the bed and bed linens are the best. Breakfast included (eggs, bread, muesli, some fruits etc.) with endless coffee and tea during the day. Every Friday they have free dinner for guests. Enjoyed that one a lot! Showers and bathrooms are very beautiful and clean. The location is amazing - right in the Old Town. Loved it!
Good location, clean and good facilities. Hostel seemed very quiet and I ended up having a room to myself which was nice!
The 2 girls managing the reception made the biggest difference. They are helpful, courteous and went out of their way to ensure that our stay was comfortable.
This place is excellent! Prime location, clean and brand new facilities with everything you need-kitchen, wifi, computers, outlets, bed lamps, etc. What really makes this place is the staff. They were all super accommodating and helpful, from arranging tours and taxis, to picking out top notch restaurant recommendations. I would absolutely recommend this place to anyone staying in Sarajevo. It's a must!
Brilliant hostel! The rooms are comfortable, spacious and nicely decorated. It is also the cleanest hostel I have ever stayed in! The staff are what really makes the place stand out as they are all extremely friendly, helpful and welcoming. Will return in future!

The hostel is lovely and modern, clean and looks new. There are good size lockers in the rooms but the mixed dorm rooms don't get locked. while i was sleeping one morning, a random man walked in and started yelling at me - turns out he had gone in the wrong room. also the cleaner barged in without knocking - basically your stuff is safe but anyone in the hostel can and will waltz in the room whenever they want. staff are helpful but easily distracted. Parking is NOT available
The bed is comfortable and the design of the bed makes you feel that you have some privacy. The bed comes with individual night light and plug which is good. Breakfast was good too, with eggs, bread and cereal. The staff are helpful.
Franz Ferdinand was amazing- excellent facilities in the most perfect location close to all the old town sites and good restaurants. The Under the Siege tour was terrific and Muki is an excellent guide. I will recommend the hostel to anyone going to Sarajevo!
I loved this hostel, everything about it was fantastic. It's all new and shiny, with a lovely kitchen, nice breakfast, comfortable beds, and best of all, thick fluffy towels :) The staff was so helpful and welcoming, you'll have a great stay in Sarajevo at Franz Ferdinand.
The design of the showers is very aesthetically pleasing but maybe not functional because it is very difficult (almost impossible) to dry after use due to lack of ventilation. It would not dry even overnight.
Excellent design A very friendly and helpful staff A rich breakfast

Brillant hostel! Friendliest and most helpful staff, immaculately clean and tidy, great breakfast (eggs, coffee, bread, good quality muesli)...if you're going to Sarajevo, STAY AT THIS HOSTEL! (I promise I wasn't paid to say this :P )
Hostel Franz Ferdinand is a pleasant place to stay. Very friendly staff and boss. Rooms are clean and it is located in the center of old town (Ferhadija and Bascarsija).
