    Had an amazing experience staying at the Balkan Han. The staff is so friendly! The owner and the manager are always around to make sure everyone is ok and they give you the best tips about restaurants, what to do and bars in Sarajevo. The mattresses are way better the every other hostel and the atmosphere is really good. Stayed two days more in Sarajevo and this is mostly because of what these guys did.

    This is a great little hostel, with friendly approachable staff, unassuming but in a great location. Beds were comfortable and there is a cozy bar, terrace and kitchen. I stayed with a female colleague and both of us felt safe and secure the whole time.

    Balkan Han was awesome! I really liked their customer service! The hostel is relatively convenient to the old bazaar (15 mins walk) and also other amenities like grocery shops etc. The place was really clean and I even cooked for some of the guests and volunteers! I had a really great stay with Balkan Han. However, for those who needs lots of space in the bathroom, do note that the bathroom is quite small. Also, they don't allow outside alcohol. Overall I would stay here again!

    Not sure how this place has such a high rating? If you like cold showers, wearing crocs, slow wifi and no locks in bedroom doors then this is the place for you. place didn't seem very clean, there are no covers on the pillows or duvets and the mats in the showers are gross. Only upside is the staff are nice and location, it's close to the old town
