The hostel is great and Cat is such a lovely person to welcome you to Sarajevo. Would highly recommend! The hill up to the hostel is pretty damn steep. But it's not long at all and totally worth it for the view and silence of being out of city centre.

Amazing, quiet hostel with the friendliest staff you could ask for. The entire hostel is small enough for everyone to easily meet and chill together on the terraces. Great kitchen and everything was perfect. Great for solo travelers. Thanks!

Clearly a masterful enterprise with purest intention. The best feature is the host and owner, who is the platonic ideal of competence and grace.

Cat and Edina are incredible people to get to know, and the hostel provided a wonderful environment (not to mention one of the best views of the city). I am very eager to return to The Doctor's House, and hope to do so in the near future. Everything works there; it is kept in immaculate condition, tenants are considerate, and the beers were also very good. Nothing negative to say.

It's a beautiful big house on the top of a hill with a killer view. But you earn that view every time you have to conquer the climb. I love the big comfortable beds with isolation curtains. Also dig the large lockers and the kitchen. I think because of the small outdoor common areas and the bed curtains the place feels a bit more private and less social. Take their recommendation and go to Dragan's. I'd skip the tunnel and bobsled tour.

Really enjoyed our stay here, we had one of the private rooms with a beautiful view over Sarajevo. The host Cat could not have been more helpful and friendly, and the hostel runs its own private tour taking you to some amazing viewpoints and the Olympic Bob-Sleigh track which was great. The rather large hill is not a problem because if you are lazy (like we were) a cab up back up there from the centre is less than €2. Thanks for having us :)

The best hostel we stayed at in all of Eastern Europe. Cat is the perfect host, the hostel is clean and includes everything you could need. Smaller hostel so you can easily get to know everyone. Well done Cat! :)

Almost died walking up the hill. Do not believe the directions, the hostel is not close to the French embassy. The bathrooms were limited and dirty. Cat was wonderful and extremely helpful but I don't know that I would make the trek to the hostel just to interact with her. The wifi rarely worked the entire time we were there. This hostel came highly recommended to us, and to be honest, we were disappointed.

Jessy, thanks for your feedback and nice words about our staff! We admit that hill can be a killer. A note to clarify for others who may read this comment: we are not close to the French Embassy, but instead we are located directly beside the French Ambassador's residence - an easy location marker to tell cab drivers. We do are best to stay on the bathrooms and keep them clean - apologies we let that drop off while you were here! Safe travels onward!

Booked a hostel but arrived at a home. This hostel has an incredible atmosphere, very easy to make new friends here! Good WiFi, clean facilities and the curtains at the beds gives you a little extra privacy at night. Plus, loved the view over Sarajevo from the balcony.

The staff at the Doctor's House are so nice and helpful. The hostel is halfway up a big hill, but backpackers should be used to hiking so it won't be a big deal. Facilities are clean and the hostel has a cosy feel to it. The staff even cooked dinner one night and saved me some because I was out late! Great place to stay in Sarajevo.

Can't recommend the Doctor's House highly enough - Cat, Adina and Sarah make everyone feel at home and the atmosphere is so welcoming you actually want to spend time there (the hallmark of a truly great hostel). Fantastic place to make connections and gather ideas on how to navigate Sarajevo. And you even get a work out climbing up the hill - what more could you want? ; ) A+++
