We stayed in a seperate building up the hill from the main hostel, 5 minutes walk. Room was quite spacious, clean and tidy, bathroom close by. We didnt see anything of the hostel itself- when we arrived at about 10pm, the owner was asleep in the front office and we had to phone him to get in, and the following day this office was locked when we wanted to leave bags there. In fairness he drove us up the hill to our room the first night but was nowhere to be found afterwards. Great location though


De owner was drunk about 90% of the time. Which was equally uncomfortable as it was hilarious. When we arrived at 5pm, he didn't have the room ready. However, after a bit of a push he went to clean it and everything was in order. This being said, the rest of our stay was quite spotless. Its a small hostel with cheap private rooms and good location. Not really the most social hostel, but it can be a nice change from staying at the busier hostels from time to time.


Great location, not even 5 minutes from the main central area of the city. The room was very comfy with lots of space, and a private bathroom. Not the best place for meeting new people since the hostel comprises of only 4 rooms. The owner was very friendly and did not make a hassle about our late check out.


Excellent. The owner was lovely. Especially great (and affordable) for solo travelers looking for a bit more privacy than a dorm room. Location couldn't be better.


Me and my boyfriend rested there for 2 nights, we had a big room for 4 people only in two, with the bathroom inside, was excellent to be there, THE POSITION IS PERFECT, the personal is very kind and every morning they organize a fantastic tour in sarajevo's important places (far on foot) for 40 mk (20 euros) WE RECCOMAND IT A LOT! :) :) :)

We were taken across the road to what appeared to be a sister hostel however it was fantastic! The location was right in the centre and our room on the top floor was connected to a lovely common room with a stunning view out over the old town. Wifi was good. The shops and restaurants were seconds away, the location couldnt have been more perfect.


very friendly stuff and nice atmosphere. located in the very center of the city. clean place and reasonable prices. very recommendable.

Really good hostel at the centre of the historical old town in the city of Sarajevo. All the important landmarks are within walkable distance. It's also close to all sorts of facilities like restaurants, tourist information centre, medical shops and things of general use. Hostel itself has good level of facilities, is clean, has comfortable beds, is safe and most importantly people are warm and ready to help. They were also helpful for me to organize my tour in Sarajevo. It's worthy of a visit.

What can I say about it, a place where I stayed two times in Sarajevo and had the best time? Probably that I wish I was there also during my first trip to Sarajevo. The owners are absolutely amazing. Skender and his father are one of the most welcoming people you can find and one of the reasons I kept coming back to Sarajevo is them. The location is perfect, the beds are really confortable, it is very clean and the staff is helpfull. It's a shame I cannot write more...you were, again, the best!!
