The location by the main square is really good ( but I hear that there are some rooms somewhere else...) I'm not too difficult and i can take some punishment. But honestly? the place is real dirty. The kitchen area is disgusting, the toilets/bathroom area out of an horror movie. No toilet paper(...) in all toilets but one.. No water during the night when I was there(!) But the staff was friendly, and there's hot water.. For 1€ more: go somewhere else! I know I will next time I'm in Sarajevo..
Staff are all very kind and giving people. When I asked to work for them they agreed pretty much immediately. I thank the fact that they all speak a good level of english making communication very easy and my stay overall wonderful!

The location of the apartments is terrible! The address indicated here is the address of the reception. We have to drive through the city in tiny streets to get in the apartment. The place is full of cats, and they get into the rooms. We woke up in the middle of the night with rats making noises on the roof. And we have to wait about 20 minutes until someone opened the reception for us to check in.
Some people had their rooms in another part of the city but our one was in the very city centre. The hostel was a bit dirty but has a great alternative atmosphere (looked like a SQUAT). We met wonderful crazy people (also some squatters) and spent great time
Chose this hostel as it was cheap & we were in town only 6hrs (arrive 11pm, leave at 5am). The staff were unprofessional - the receptionist who checked us in was a young adolescent boy. We stayed in the 14-bed dorm, great location, but were absolutely ravaged by bed bugs, despite only being in the room for 6hrs. We left the hostel at 5am to catch a train to Mostar & the bites didn't come up til later that afternoon. We weren't offered a refund or apology when we contacted them to let them know
No lock on the bathroom door, can't flush toilets in the evenings, cooking facilities available but unusable because there were dirty pans that we found in the oven that had been in there long enough for it to have swarms of flies coming out of it. We had to climb a huge hill to get to our accomodation which was not in the main hostel! Only good point, no bed bugs! :)
This place was AMAZING. thanks so much for the coffee to our lovely hostess! :D
It is an old hostel. The Rooms are too small. The bahtroom and shower area is too narrow. Good location though.
Excellent hostel. Met some fantastic people there. The common room and front patio make it really easy to socialize and its really close to most of what you'd want to see in Sarajevo.
BEG BUGS - do yourself a favour and pay a little extra somewhere else.
location is excellent!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! they gave me room close to reception so location was very good.
It's a good Hostel and although it is not where it's said on the map it is still really central.
The best and the cheapest hostel in sarajevo, located in the centre off the old city the owners are very friendly and understanding especialy " STRONG WOMAN" and " correct woman". The commun room is a perfect place to chill have a drink and meet lot of nice travelers. plus if you need to move in the city they have their own mini van to take where ever you want and free wolking tour in the city: As i said the best hostel in all sarajevo :).

I do love the ladies in the Reception, and I do love the main hostel (I stayed there before), but this time we were in the new block which is up a hill over the river from the old town square. It's a fine location, other than the steep climb, but the facilities are really lacking and cleanliness takes a massive dive. The wifi didn't work at all up there, and there were no cups, plates, rooms very cramped and it was dirty. But you do get an outside garden all to yourselves and it was very cheap!
The hostel is exactly what you pay for its dirt cheap. But I had an awesome time. Very friendly hostel which attracts awesome solo or small travel groups. The only real negative about here is that I didn't stay in the main hostel and it was a 10 minute walk up a very steep hill. If you book here request to stay in the main part.
The hostel is great, and also dirt cheap, with friendly staff. At first the wifi didnt work in the room - had to go outside, but we told them and it was fixed. The room was actually a 10 minute walk from the reception, so the location is not ideal, but that depends which one you get - there's also rooms right next to the reception, i heard.
I run away from that hostel. The taxi driver tell us that was a very bad hostel, he told us "20 good hostel, this is a bud hostel" and that was true. It was dirty, to close the door of the wc you have to stand on de wc, the roof was broken...that can be a hostel!!! nobody can sleep there.
Best hostel I stayed in during the whole of my travels this year (and the cheapest!) staff are a delight.. Location is perfect, made some great friends, really good chilled vibes. Thanks!
Office is central, but had to walk 15 minutes uphill to our room. Only common area was a picnic table outside. Toilet was broken and bathroom always flooded. However, it was still a hood value for the money.
Dont be duped: the lady at reception will try to upgrade you to a 6 person dorm from the 14 or 26 for the same price. This is not an upgrade. 6 person rooms are outside of the center by a 10-15 min walk up a large hill. Four 6-person rooms share 1 toilet and shower. The dorms are ok and have a good hangout area/location but the rooms have no windows/ac and can get hot/stuffy. We had bed bug bites. But, for the price, i guess i cant complain.
