They are trying to cheat us. We had reservation one room for 5 people, but then they gave to us one really far from the center in basement room. We did complain but still we didn’t get what we reserve and paid. I think try to fool everybody with that 20 min walking in the hill faraway from center apartment.

We got off to a bad start here because the staff had arranged to pick us up at the station but had the time wrong so we had to get a cab. The location was great though, right in the middle of the Old Town and the staff were helpful and friendly. The main downside was that everyone smoked throughout the common area and reception making it quite hard to hang out in.


Great staff, but some of the rooms are quite afar.


Very helpful staff.


Location location! You can walk to most everything with the exception of the war tunnel. The hostel itself is a little run down, but has character which is befitting of Sarajevo. A good social common area adjacent to the kitchen and computer room. The computers are free. The showers are a little tight and dated, but you have warm water and its relatively clean. As with all of Sarajevo no water from 12 midnight to 5 am. Would I recommend this to another avid traveler, yes.


The hostel and staff were fantastic; the most kind and helpful staff I have ever met at a hostel.


Located right in the centre of the old town, this situation is brilliant. The beds are relatively comfortable but do not feel fantastically clean but you feel safe and comfortable! The common room is a great space to meet people and the staff are always willing to help! All in all, a good stay.


Location was great! Really central to everything you'll want to see in Sarajevo. The staff was kind. The rooms were a little dark and damp. Great common room! The atmosphere as far as meeting people goes was pretty poor. Over all an average place in a fabulous location!


Great location and staff was really helpful!


Add some hooks in the bathroom please


Extremly helpfull staff! The woman working in the reception always wanted to help us, but the language could be a challenge. We booked for one night, but ended up with 3 because of the city and the location. The old town with the turkish marked is 10 meters from the hostel.


Very2 kind host.. Will definitely return


Every time staffs of here are clearing in bed room and kitchen, WC. It is very good feeling of me. And here`s location is one of the best place in Sarajevo I think. But but but, here is the cheapest hostel in this city. It is enough about plaice, location, cleanliness, staffs of here ! And I didn`t feel about bad feelings or some risk like a theft. I enjoyed 2weeks vacation in Sarajevo at Hostel Ljubicica, thanks !!!

The hostel is in a great location, right in the centre. Bit of a walk from the bus and train station so if you prefer to not walk then catch a tram or taxi. The staff are lovely and helpful. We stayed an extra night and I would stay here again.


An ideal hostel, great location, staff and facilities, and a very comfy bed!


Positive staff in hostel, very nice city but a little dangerous. Nice rooms with everything you need plus little kitchen near the room, beautiful nature around. Sarajevo is city which everybody have to see, but you also need to keep your stuff save! You won't miss a thing if you stay in hostel Ljubicica! Even better, you will try a great Bosnian caffe. :) Ivana, Croatia.

The main apartments are in the very centre of the city and the ones that we were in are just 5 minutes away on the hill with the great view on the city. The hostel keepers are very kind and relaxed folks ready to help.


Directly across from Sebilj Fountain in Baščaršija sq. , this hostel was a great stay in the heart of old town! The staff were sweet and helpful, the rooms conveniently on the ground floor are secure and cool..Beds were ultra comfortable and a good size.. Great bakery for sweets and Burek next door (can smell it), as well as a supermarket and ATM 30m away. WiFi was the fastest I've had at any hostel, great for skype or video.. The #1tram to bus/train sta. right in front. WIll B back Thanx :)


Very good location situated in the old town, ample facilities available including computers, WiFi, common room, several showers, kitchen, very clean dorms. Friendly staff and excellent value.
