    Such a good Hostel. The best common areas I have experienced and great staff, especially Ivan who made everyone feel welcomed. Rooms, bathrooms, showers as well as the kitchen are clean and spacious. Balkan Han is located right next to the main promenade and city centre which I liked a lot, even though the distance to the bus station is a bit further. Met so many people and had a lovely stay at Balkan Han. I would definitely recommend staying there.

    Great for socialising and good location in city centre. It’s quite a walk from the bus and train station, but that’s the case for everything in Sarajevo. And really nice showers

    One of those hostels where you are likely to extend your stay very quickly after you arrive when you realise what a cool little hostel this is. So sociable with everyone hanging out in the garden area. Friendly and helpful staff who I ended up going for a night out with and having a great time. Close to the old town. Comfortable rooms. Small kitchen but it works. Very good value for money.

    Great hostel. A little walk from the city centre, although it has a very social courtyard which made up for it! Main downside was the bathrooms were shared between quite a few people so there was often a queue. But would still stay again:)

    J'ai adoré l'auberge. On s'y sent bien. J'ai pu me reposer dans le petit jardin, il y règne une atmosphère sereine et détendue. L'auberge est très cosy avec une déco melting-pot. Les lits sont très confortables. Merci, je reviendrai

    Its a safe and reliable place to stay. The staff are always prepared to assist with anything. The general vibe of the place is quite transient with majority of guests staying for 1-2 nites. It was pretty full and generally felt like a bit too crowded in the common spaces. The vibe of the outdoor deck/common area is chill, but it's difficult to have any sort of private conversation there which doesn't suit for socializing. Good location, comfortable good staff, well run hostel overall.
