    Best hostel I’ve stayed at during 7 months of travel! Wonderful location, staff, beds, kitchen and social atmosphere. The hostel is super clean and the kitchen is well equipped and has spices & oil. Free drinks every night make it easy to meet people. I had the bed sleep here. Adis and Sheena were wonderful. Would recommend this hostel to anyone!

    Very interesting and lovely hostel super close to the city center. The staff is friendly and happy to help you with anything you need, the room was very clean and quite, super comfortable to stay in. The location is fantastic, 5 minutes walk bring you to any of the sightseeing points, and couple of cool pubs and bars are also just some minutes away. Would definitely stay in this hostel again. p.s. only cash (bosnian marks) accepted, but we were allowed to pay on our second or third day.

    Short stay in a private room was ideal. Location to old town and local nightlife was perfect. Room and facility was clean and comfortable. Cook your own breakfast was a new concept and was a highlight. Although stayed in off season raki and beer night made it easy to meet other travellers. Would stay again

    This hostel was fantastic - clean/updated facilities, comfortable beds, perfect location, super friendly and helpful staff, and an organized activity each evening to get people together. I liked the atmosphere here, it was really laid back and I found it really easy to meet people in the evenings - important to me since I travel solo for the most part. What really took this hostel to the next level for me was the staff though - they were all really hardworking and really kind (thanks Adis!) :)

    We stayed 3 nights at Franz Ferdinand. it's Right in the middle of Sarajevo. Everything is close, just walk outside the dorm. We booked a 4-bed-room. Beds are confortable. Room and bathroom were cleaned every day. Breakfast is good value-for-money. The staff is really nice and motivated and they prepare some small gatherings with snacks in the evening. Fully recommended

    Franz Ferdinand hostel is in a perfect location in Sarajevo! Staff are really helpful and friendly. We had a private room which was actually a bit dark/dingey and quite cramped, bathroom was a bit smelly too. Nonetheless everything was clean and nice addition to have free tea and coffee.
