A good, modern, smallish hostel right in the centre of Sarajevo.


Great hostel with really fun and helpful staff. Would stay here again!


Great hostel. The atmosphere is really great for meeting new people and the staff are really awesome. Shoutout to Borris for being the most awesome night receptionist.


The hostel for choices! - You can choose to focus on the noise from the street, or from the movies the night receptionist played all night - Choose which internal body temperature you´d like: 24C (without any blankets)? 34C (with the paper-thin sheet provided)? or 42C? (from pure anger) - Where to spend your money: this hostel or a cardboard-box to sleep on Without a shadow of a doubt the worst hostel-experience of my life


Very friendly staff and the tour with Haris was fantastic. Better kitchen facilities would be nice, you can't really cook, however the food is so cheap in Sarajevo, you probably don't have to.


Great value for money, very central to everything. Atmosphere was ok many I met were long term travellers who were doing their own thing. Staff were helpful and the facilliteis were very good.


We enjoyed a lot our stay in Vagabond, the staff is very helpful and nice, the hostel is situated in a perfect location for exploring the sightseeings and bars.

The hostel is nice and clean. I am used to sleeping in dorms, but the 14 bed dorm was really noisy and because there is only one light, everybody is putting the light on during the night, which was just above my bed. Maybe the hostel staff can make a few more smaller lights?


Decent hostel. Good staff and wifi. However, there were no hot water in the bathroom.


I had a great time staying at this hostel! The staff was fantastic and super friendly and informative! They offer good tours from locals, not to mention it's location is right smack in the middle of the main area that you want to see! I was also there while the film festival was going on so that was great fun too. The place is cleaned daily and doesnt ever really get dirty. Has a great common area where most people go down to socialize! Highly recommend staying here.

A great hostel, especially for solo travellers!! Rooms are big and clean, staff is great and very helpfull and the location is amazing! The commonroom is very fun and had a nice meal with the owner!


Great hostel with a fun common room and nice staff. The kitchen facilities were a bit underwhelming with only an electric hot plate upstairs and cutlery plates and pots all downstairs. Very clean, never had to lineup for a shower and the location is in the centre of everything!


Great location and great staff, nice common room area where you could chill and talk with the owners and other travellers. Short distance to all the bars and sights, but still quiet at night. Big lockers if you feel like you need to cram everything inside (I didn't).


Really friendly and knowledgeable staff, great tours, nice rooms, and an excellent location (a minute's walk from the Old Town). Highly recommended. One minor niggle: the price (to be paid on arrival) was quoted to us in Euros, but had to be paid in Bosnian Marks.


Good hostel, brilliant location right on the main street, excelent staff, really good beds and good facilities. Had a great stay there.


Great hostel for solo travelers to meet people. Location couldn't be better. Dorms are average, no special pros or cons. There are lockers available. The staff is friendly and helpful. A clear recommendation!


A good hostel in a very central location, right on the main pedestrian street. The bathroom is a little bit small, at least the one on the first floor, but the hostel is clean and comfortable. The staff helped us when we continued our trip and called other hostels until we had a room for the next night. They are a member of the Balkan Backpacker Hostels, so you can get some discount when you book with other hostels of that group.
