    If you come to Sarajevo, come here. Great atmosphere especially in the garden with a cheap bar with home-made wine and Rakiya. Great for people in their late 20s/early 30s. The tour of Sarajevo is a must - learnt all about the history and politics of the city and also saw the tunnel, the mountain and bob sleigh track etc. Lots of Rakiya on the tour too! The staff also had great recommendations for music bars in the city. Can’t wait to go back!

    Amazing location, all facilities up to date and staff that were soo friendly and helpful. Would really recommend the tour of Sarajevo- so informative and such a raw experience. Lovely sociable garden area and amenities all good. Bathroom feels like it could use some upkeep, but all relatively clean and super friendly atmosphere

    This hostel is so welcoming, we met so many other travelers! It has a lovely terrace area and kitchen for making food. Ivan does a really good tour of Sarajevo giving you a personal and educational experience of during the time of the war (with lots of rakija). Highly recommend it, my favourite hostel I’ve stayed in

    Very friendly staff, but right next to a very busy road so extremely noisy. No air condition/fans didn’t help as had to have windows open. Also no individual plug sockets in the room. However cool garden and reasonably close to everything and a bar is always a good extra.
