Excellent atmosphere and staff, staying at this hostel was certainly a highlight of being in Sarajevo.
People took the name of this hostel a little too seriously when I stayed and everyone was sick or injured. However, it was an amazing hostel and the room upstairs has a great view. The staff is amazing and very helpful. The outdoor areas are also such a bonus to hang out on. The kitchen has everything you need: coffee,oil, sugar, spices, spaces. There is tons of common space and the beds are a nice hidey place. If you make it up the hill it's heaven as a hostel. :).
Beautiful hostel - cozy common areas, the best equipped kitchen we've come across, and incredibly helpful staff. We are cycling and there was a place for us to lock our bikes up undercover which is always a plus. It's a bit of a walk up the hill to get in and out of the city, but hostel, the views and the neighbourhood more than make up for any effort (plus the walk helps to work off the tufajia).
Thank you Cat for such a lovely stay! We had a private and it was clean and comfortable. Really friendly atmosphere and fantastic kitchen. Just up the road (a good little steep walk) from the city centre in a quiet street. Great place to meet fellow travellers. Thanks a bunch!
There is nothing bad to say about this hostel! Staff are incredible, beds are comfortsble, showers and hot and clean. The location is right near in city centre. It is a walk up a hill but this means you have the most incredible view over the city from your hostel balcony! There is also free parking on the street. Will be returning to this hostel again!
Great location, great city. Must visit!

I had great time at The Doctor's House. Cat and Sarah were so welcoming. A really lovely hostel. Great view over the city, the dorm was comfortable. The soup Sarah made was beautiful, a real treat. Thank you all Rich
Everything you could want in a hostel! We felt at home as soon as we arrived. Amazingly comfortable beds, everyone just turns into a big family straight away, highly reccomend staying here!
Best hostel of the whole trip! Everything you wish for as a traveller as well as a very friendly atmosphere with a great staff! I should have stayed longer... :-)

Very comfortable. Very clean. Friendly and helpful staff. You can see that the hostel has an attention to detail. I highly recommend. The only negative is the walk up to the hostel from the old city. However, you can take a cheap taxi ride from the bottom if you're feeling lazy :)
Wifi very week , rest rooms are dirty and kitchen gets untidy all the time Climbing up the hill to the hostel is not easy thing
Very well kept with good facilities and able to buy beers from the fridge. Staff are great. Was starting to get a bit quieter as it was the end of the season, the kitchen landed up being fairly social with people hanging out there even when not cooking but the common area most of the time was just people on laptops which was a shame. Half of the people here did land up following me to Mostar!
It was a friendly and homely experience, a good location and a team of very helpful staff. Would recommend!

This was the best hostel I've ever stayed in. Staff is kind, friendly, and offers a great perspective on Sarajevo. The owner, Cat is so welcoming and inclusive--she invited guests out to great bars and arranged a pizza night while we were there. Great recommendations. Clean. Secure. Full kitchen. Comfortable hanging around but also options for going out. If/when I return to Sarajevo, 100% I'm staying here.
Comfortable and clean rooms, with very friendly owner. A little walk up the hill from the city centre (take a taxi if with bags) but means the atmosphere is more chilled.
Perfect hostel experience in Sarajevo! Yes, it's a walk up the hill, but Wow, what a view. And worth it for the experience. Kat and her team are friendly, knowledgable and always available to help! I will be back!
The Doctor's House has a great atmosphere and facilities. Rooms are very clean and provide enough space for everyone staying in the dorm. Cat was very helpful, her recommendations helped us shape our travel plan in Sarajevo. The balconies and common space are great to socialize and catch brilliant views of Sarajevo. The only negative aspect about the hostel is its location. You need to walk a steep hill (for approx. 10 mins) from downtown to get to the hostel.
Thanks so much to Cat and Edina for making my stay in Sarajevo such a great experience. The Doctor's House is one of the best hostels I've stayed in. Cat, the owner, has thought of everything you could need in a hostel. But in case you need do need something else she is always around to help out. Will definitely be back to Sarajevo again soon!
I ended up spending a week in this hostel as I loved Sarajevo. The staff are great and really helpful and the facilities good - except a couple of times no hot water in the shower. The lockers are big, the privacy curtains a nice touch and the kitchen good. The living area downstairs was a bit dingy but it's a small niggle. Overall I would highly recommend (the hill is fine) and recommend going into the 6 bed dorm on the top floor. It's more spacious and has a balcony.
