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.

Turned up at the hostel but found we were staying in apartments 10 mins away. Wasn't bad though and think this is normal for Sarajevo as there aren't many traditional backpacker type hostels.

We stayed in a different appartment three minutes away from the hostel. Both places are right in the city center. We booked a six bed dorm but received a double room which was great but there was no kitchen to use. Staff was friendly but not very helpful.

We've been to hostel Posillipo for the second time in 4 years and it was perfect as the first time. Very gently staff, speaking a good english, large room and bathroom with the best shower of the entire balcan region. In a wonderful position, just outside Bascarsija, two minutes by feet from the National Library and the Sebilj square.

Guys at Posillipo are the greatest. Last time I visited Sarajevo I stayed in another hostel and I regret it cause here I was treated really really weel. The location is the best, but also the shower, the room...everything was perfect! I thank you guys a lot for the great time I had there! Skender, you are the best!

This hostel is right in the Old City, just minutes from many of the sights. It was a challenge to find by car, so we followed the instructions on foot and found it. We were able to park on site.

booked a cheap twin private and got an almost luxury apartment with own bathroom, a little kitchen, a pc with internet connection - everything neat and new. the owner and his family were really nice, helping with whatever they could (calling agencies for ferry schedules etc.). we liked the location: not inmidst the tourist-packed old town, but a 10 minutes (scenic) walk from there. absolutely enjoyable and incredible value for money!

The hostel is right in the old town so it has a beautiful location. Staff are very helpful and friendly and the rooms were spotless. Excellent hostel!

High quality for that price class. The hostel is located in the very heart of the old town. Lots of room and a clean bathroom attached to the "dorm" (you could also call it: "nice living room plus sleeping room"). Didn't have a lot of contact with the hostel staff, but they all seemed friendly and competent.

Great location right In the old town and good wi fi. Shower was dirty and didn't drain properly.

This hostel is in a brilliant location. The staff are so friendly. We arrived very weary on an overnight bus and were told we could rest on the couches while our rooms were prepared. I fell asleep for a fair few hours and vaguely remember the lady covering me with a blanket. Our rooms were ready well before check-in time and the good service continued for the rest of the stay.

Due to a problem with our booking, we were housed in a room across the road. Zero facilities, zero character, zero atmosphere. A cheap room which was welcome, but in terms of anything else, an eccentric disaster. (Nice view of a Sarajevo mosque though I guess).

This is a good hostel in a very good location in town. The only problem was that wi-fi was occasionally not working. One thing that made our stay really good was the war seige tour offered by the hostel, and the guide (can't remember his name) was absolutely brilliant, probably the best tour guide we've ever had from a hostel.

Great place to stay, right in the Centre but it's quiet when sleeping. Modern facilities such as a shower and washing machine and there's a large balcony in the communal area for all guests. The staff could not of been more helpful ( one member of staff gave me his old suitcase for free when mine had broken).
