The place is clean and comfortable, included breakfast is good but above all, the staff are AMAZING. Can't thank them enough for all their help.

Your staff is what makes your hostel so special. Through interactions with them, we learned so much about what life is like in Sarajevo now and what it was like during the war. It made our visit to Sarajevo very meaningful and memorable. Thank you to Amina, Sedad, Amvar (our driver and guide to Srebenica) and others. My one complaint about the hostel was the lack of toilets- only two in the main floor for many people.

Really enjoyed my stay here :) Really friendly staff and helpful and when I returned a few days later on my way to Belgrade, they all remembered me which was nice. Decent kitchen facilities and free tea and coffee. Their tours were very informative and I highly recommend them. Superb location too!

Great hostel! Brand new and eager to please. Everything you could want in a hostel and more: common room, free breakfast, cubical beds, lockers, clean facilities and friendly staff. Staff were there 24/7 and could answer any question and solve any problem. The tours on offer: Under the Siege and Free Walking Tour were incredible and everyone should do them there's a lot to learn about Sarajevo and these guys make it personal and super interesting.

We stayed in a double bed private. The bed was really comfy, we even had a TV and all the Franz Ferdinand decor was a nice touch. The hostel staff were really friendly and they organised tours too. We went on the siege of the city tour which i definitely recommend.

Great location, good wifi and also computers that were free to use. Kitchen was very well equipped. Everyone was really friendly but it tended to empty during the evening when we were eating. Space was a bit tight, at least in our six bed dorm, but we had a great stay at Franz Ferdinand.

Dear Anna, Thank you for your review, we are glad you enjoyed your stay here. Next time we will try to keep the guests inn, or at least our staff will be in the common area so it's not boring. Thank you again and see you again. FF Team

It was easy to feel at home at Franz Ferdinand. Funny for me as a swedish citizen that I had maybe 5o metres to the swedish embassy, which means it was only 20 metres more to the in weekends very crowded pub area. At the same time it was one little street away for those who prefer to sleep.

Stayed there for 2 nights, which was way too less time for Sarajevo but I really enjoyed my time. The location of the hostel is really good although it's not a party hostel. But can still start something from there and head into oldtown nearby to party.

Great customer service. Free WiFi everywhere. Modest breakfast, but kept me going, and for the price I can't complain. Quiet room. Excellent beds -- very comfortable. Shower was powerful, but was squeezed into the corner of the bathroom. The hostel design is great. Each room is themed, and the history of Franz Ferdinand and WW1 are narrated on the walls, floors, and ceilings around the hostel. Guests were friendly and happy to chat. The free walking tour is great. Thanks!

Dear David, Thank you very much for your detailed review. We are glad you liked most of the things. Shower is little bit smaller, but we assumed that it's not that important to have a big shower in a dorm. thank you for your nice review dear friend. We hope to host you again. FF Team
