great little spot in Sarajevo! This was the hostel where I learned I enjoy smaller scale hostels than mega ones. Made some good friends and had hilarious conversations with the staff. The staff at first can seem cold, but that's just bosnian, and they immediately warm up upon various questions about their culture, making fun of your own culture, and asking them about local recommendations. Highly recommend this place for meeting people (for solo travelers)


In Travellers home hostel is the name programme. The atmosphere is like a communal residence (WG) just much cleaner. The private rooms are comfortable. There are tow bathrooms, both new and very nice. One of them is really big with a big mirror. A dream for all girls. The members of staff have alway time for you. And they gave me super recommendation for restaurants (the best food I had in Balkan) and other hostels. The hostel works with a buscommpany together. They organized a bus for me ...


This hostel doesn't deserve the high review it currently has IMO. The staff had absolutely zero interest in the guests beyond checkin and offer nothing in the way of activities or events, leading to a pretty poor social atmosphere. Given the other options in town id stay somewhere that really wants to make the guest trip as good as possible.

Reviews that we receive never contain complaints about our staff since they are always doing the best they can to inform our guests about what is currently going on in the city. The hostel is medium sized and it always offers really good atmosphere and easy socializing. This review also lowers all other categories such as cleanliness and value making it untrue and misleading. Travellers Home Hostel

One of the best hostels I've stayed in. The staff was beyond helpful and very nice. They give great recommendations. The hostel is very close to the old town and easily reached by tram from the bus station and train station. I would highly recommend this place to anyone visiting sarajevo.


Fantastic hostel. The bathrooms were hotel quality if not better and the kitchen was excellent. Dino and Sherif were really cool guys as well and gave us some great tips. My only complaint is the cigarette smell upstairs. There is a separate smoking room but it is probably not sealed properly as the smell is noticeable down the hall. Apart from that, top class place. Excellent.

I absolutely loved staying at this hostel. The staff is very welcoming, friendly, and helpful. They even arranged our transport back to Budapest for us! The rooms are cozy and comfortable, and the staff provides padlocks for the cubbies under the beds. The kitchen is great for cooking your own meals, and the bathrooms are very clean. The whole hostel felt like a home. It's located right on the river just a short walk from the markets in the Old Town. I would recommend this hostel to everyone.


Second time stopping at this hostel, and just as good as the first. This hotel is one of the best hostels I've stopped in out of many! The staff are great, helpful and know the best recommendations in Sarajevo. Dino was a great hostel host, thanks for the good laughs, info. and excellent Bosnian hospitality!! Thanks all!


너무 편하게 잘 지냈습니다~너무 친절하고 좋아요~


Nice hostel close to the upper town. Very helpful staff!


Amazing hostel! Staff was great! Location is perfect, I've seen ALOT of hostels and never one this nice, i will go back for sure and recommend to everyone going to Sarajevo


Really nice place, accommodating in anyway you would need. Full kitchen, comfy beds, nice atmosphere, homely! Guys working the front desk are friendly and helpful!


Perfect hostel, do not think of staying in another place if you can book this one.


This has been one of the best hostels i've stayed in. It is centrally located, in the Austro-hungarian part of Sarajevo, in the middle of all the attractions, and only a few minutes walk from Bascarsija. Staff were very welcoming, informative and helpful to make the best out of my stay. The hostel is quite small, cozy, where it is easy to meet other (solo) travellers. I would certainly recommend this hostel.


We used this hostel as our base both during and after our stay there. The guys were very helpful in providing information for tours and skiing. Even after we checked out and moved on, they were supportive in finding us transportation to our next stop and opening the hostel up to us to get ourselves organized. I would highly recommend this place!


Beautiful hostel, super close to the stari grad, walking distance to everything in Sarajevo. Deano was amazing and recommended so many good bars, restaurants and clubs to us. Quiet time of year in the hostel but a great bunch of people staying there. Very clean, kitchens very well equipped. Can't wait to come back to Sarajevo to stay here again and explore some more


Great hostel. The guys at the reception are super helpful, friendly, and really want you to enjoy the best of Sarajevo. Highly recommended.
