Great place to stay. Highly recommended. We were late by a large margin and they waited up into the night for us. Very accomodating and helpful. Stay here for sure.
This guesthouse was wonderful! Meli and Dzemal welcomed us warmly, and took great care of us. It was lovely to sit down for tea after a long journey, and get the lay of the land from Dzemal. The accomodations were simple, but perfect, and we loved the neighborhood. We initially planned to stay one night, then we extended to a second, and a third. Dzemal was helpful and responsive to our changing plans. I can't say enough good things about this place!
We booked this hostel for three nights but it was so perfect, in every way, that we added an extra night. The owners, mother and son, were very kind and helpful. The place very central and clean. Great value and a great find right in the heart of Sarajevo.
My partner and I had the most wonderful stay here. I have never been at a hostel where I have felt so welcome - this is more like a unique home stay than a hostel. The hosts are the kindest and warmest people you will ever meet with fresh coffee anytime you arrive back after exploring the beautiful Sarajevo. The hostel is clean and comfortable and very well located to the old town (5 mins walk) and all that Sarajevo offers. I cannot recommend this hostel highly enough! Stay here!
Very kind and helpful hosts, simple but clean room and bathroom, there is even a small kitchen. Very good location. We had a great time, thank you Dzemal & Mom :-) !!

Really grateful for the pick up from the Railway station. Our hosts were extremely friendly, and took time to answer questions and explain anything we wanted to know.
Great house, great location, great host. You're really close to the citycenter, just around three minutes. The room and house is very clean, you can also use the kitchen. Dzemal is a lovely host, with whom you can always have a cup of bosnian coffee and really good conversations. Maybe it was the best hostel I've ever stayed in. And Sarajevo is always worth a trip - even if it's just raining. ;).
We had a great stay here. Dzemal and his mother are two very friendly and hospitable people always being up for chatting or a coffee. Location is perfect 5 minutes away from the center of busy Sarajevo and with nice view on the surrounding mountains. You really feel more like a guest than a customer at their home. So we could get a better view in Sarajevon life while our stay. Plus: Thank you for picking us up at the aurobuska stanica after the long journey! :-)
'Old Town Accommodation' is more than a hostel: it's the home of a kind, welcoming, true Bosnian family. You get all the facilities you'd expect at a hostel - and the excellent price - but quite a different experience. The hostel is a short walk to the centre and you can come and go as you please. I'd recommend it to anyone.
Dzemal and his mother are very kind and helpful. He took /brought us from autobus station without any charge. Very pleasant and recomended stay.
We felt like in home, Dzemal and his mother are great hosts, very kind people. The place is in the center but in quiet neighborhood.
Dzemal is a fantastic host, he picked us up from the bus station (even though we arrived very late) and still took us on a mini tour to show us where everything was in the city. The room was clean and comfortable and the hostel is a few minutes walk from the centre of the old town. It didn't seem like the sort of place to meet people (we didn't see any other guests during our stay) but perfect for a quiet couple of days exploring Sarajevo. Definitely recommended!
Amazing bathroom, good location and friendly staff.
Dzemal and his mother made us feel like special guests in their home. Everything was very clean and comfortable, but more important was having a chance to get to know these two wonderful people. We look forward to staying with them again!
With Dzemal and his mother we felt like staying with friends, not at a hostel. They are so friendly and helpful! The facilities are simple but sufficient. And the location is great - in a quiet street ,close to the centre, with a marvelous view of the city.
The most amazing place with the nicest hosts.
