Great hostel for anyone staying in Sarajevo. If only they were all like this. The dorm bed areas were like separate pods with individual lights and power sockets for each person. Also big lockers and modern bathrooms. Staff were really helpful. Got in at 10pm and was hungry. So they told me where to eat and what to have. Just what I needed at such a late time of night. Thanks team.

I had a great stay at FFH; rooms/bathrooms/security/staff are all great. There was a small mixup with rooms, where things got double booked, but they quickly resolved the issue and everyone came away happy! They could no have handled the situation any better. Would definitely stay here again and recommend it for my friends to stay.

I stayed 4 nights at Sarajevo and enjoyed every night. The hostel was very social with a wide mix of interesting people to meet. The staff are very helpful and the breakfast is nice. The staff can help arrange tours. I recommend the Siege of Sarajevo Tour.

Best place! It rocks. So cool team, so funky design, so special. Location is perfect, beds so so so comfortable. Bunks gives you privacy. I made so many friendships with the staff, owners, other guests (and there are many). Free breakfast and free rakia shots such a good surprise. Even saw private rooms, so cosy and nice, with private bathrooms. Thank you guys for everything.

The Franz Ferdinand/WW1 theme of the decor is certainly unique. Chill place in the best location possible. Shout-out to Sedad for the rakija shot and the interesting conversation.

Dear, Thank you for your review. We are glad you liked our breakfast, it's certainly something not many hostels provide. For you next visit, we will try to make it even better because we see that there are some aspects you didn't like fro example value and facilities. We will continue to upgrade them daily.
