We went in Sarajevo 11 -12 agost deciding to pass few days this is the best place in quiet location,clean and safe,the family is really good Jamal and mother help us for every things..perfect atmosphere .
Yamal (or Jamal?), the owner, received us with great hospitality, ready for a talk at all times. It was a pity that one time we wanted to go to have some drinks with him he had to remain waiting for some travelers that in the end didn't show up. Please do call him if you're not going to show up! Another thing is that in Hostel World they advertise his place as "Bed and Breakfast" which it isn't. If you want to have good breakfast, however, you can always ask Yamal and go to a cheap good place!
We had a very pleasant stay in Sarajevo. Old accomodation is located on the way to the yellow fortress, just a few meters from the city center. Awesome staff! Jemaa was super-helpfull, he told us about all the cool places to visit, eat and go out at night in sarajevo. Totally recommended!
Really nice personal working there, Djhamal and his mother are really nice people, and thay are always trying to help the guest.
Host is very helpful and kind. He spend his own free time with us at the Police Station when my friend's passport was stolen on the tram. This kind of host you'd like to have.
Milos and Beka kept a parking place for us behind the building across the hostel. It's very safe.
Great location. Super friendly and helpful host. The late night pickup from the station was a very nice treat. Although our room and the bathroom was clean, there was a strange unpleasant smell in our room.
Hoi Dzemal We just found the time to give you an excellent feedback :) We are currently in Cluj Napoca and enjoy the time! Tonight, we are going to travel on to Budapest. Yours, Carmen and Fiona

Jamal was very kind and helpful but there were a few harmless bugs and some areas of the hostel smelled of cigarettes but I'd definitely go back - it was in a great location.
Jamal the host is probably the friendliest and most helpful person I have ever met travelling. He welcomed us into his home and always made time to sit and have a chat or answer any questions we had. The location is right near the old town and the facilities inside the house were great. Stay here if you're travelling to sarajevo
We stayed two nights at Old Town Accommodation and absolutely loved it! We totally agree with previous guests stating that Dzemal is the friendliest and most helpful host we've ever met travelling. He and his mom welcomed us into their home and took the time to answer all our questions and chat with us. The location and facilities were great, and we fully recommend it! Thanks for a great time, Dzemal! Greetings from Anna and Florence!
The best place to stay in Sarajevo! While we were staying at Old Town Accommodation I got sick, and the staff were really helpfull: they contacted a doctor, made me tea and drove us to the bus station. They did it all for free and did not want anything back again. I was very pleaced with this place!
Us two Finnish guys had a great time in Sarajevo. A big thanks to Jamal for making that happen with tips and the car ride to the bus station. Will definitely recommend this to others going to Sarajevo, and hopefully be back myself sometime as well!
This is a very nice hostel located in the very heart of the Old Town, and a bit farther from the bus/train station (around 30 min walk with luggade), but the one can always ask the owner to pick him up by car. The rooms are spacious, the facilities include fully equipped kitchen, a common room and a terrace with Sarajevo panorama. The owner is a very nice and helpful person, he will alwyas be there for you. Careful - there is no sign of a hostel, so do not miss it! Definitely worth recommending!
Host and his mother were lovely and super helpful. Place was clean and wifi worked a charm. Excellent location right near the old city, and has a awesome patio to sit on and look out over the old city.
Very friendly staff. Just a few minutes walk from old town marketstreets.
Very well located 5 Min walking distance to the old town of Sarajevo. The owner is very friendly and helpful. The hostel was clean and everthing was ok. I would stay there again.
Thanks Dzemal - we had such a lovely time at your place! Good luck with the rest of the renovations, and maybe see you someday soon!
We stayed there for just one night, but it felt like a couple of days! So we really enjoyed it and Dzemal and his Mum are really nice persons! Wish to come again! We definitely can recommend it! Thanks for that great time!
Very nice mother and son with a accomodation in the center of Sarajevo.
