HOW TO GET HERE

From Sarajevo Airport to Hostel Kucha:

1) Taxi
Expect to pay 10.00 EUR / 20.00 KM and possibly more with luggage. We recommend calling Kale Taxi (+38733570900) for a good price. A taxi can be arranged for you by our staff, just call or e-mail us beforehand and we will take care of it.

2) Shuttle bus
There is a Centrotrans airport bus for 5KM departing every couple of hours that will drop you off in Bascarsija (old town) and you can walk up or taxi up cheaply from there.

From the main bus station and railway station:

1) Take the tram and bus
From the Railway Station you can hop on Tram#1, it leaves every 20 to 30 minutes. You can either buy a ticket beforehand at a ticket window (1.60KM) or you can pay the tram driver directly (1.80KM). You need to validate your ticket once you are on the tram. Insert the ticket in the small box and have it stamped. Take the tram for about 9 minutes (3 stops) until POSTA stop. Get off the tram and cross the street. Turn LEFT on KUHLOVICA Street and then left again on BRANILACA SARAJEVA, in front of the second building to your left is a faded bus stop sign. Take the #14 bus. Pay the driver 1.80KM for a ticket and take the bus to the 5thstop Studentski dom A. It is about a 13 minute drive. When you exit the bus, go to your left and straight down the street towards ZAIMA SARCA. If you see the street SEKROVSA, you are going in the wrong direction. Turn left on ZAIMA SARCA and you will see the hostel.

2) Take the tram and walk
From the Railway Station you can hop on Tram#1, it leaves every 20 to 30 minutes. You can either buy a ticket beforehand at a ticket window (1.60KM) or you can pay the tram driver directly (1.80KM). You need to validate your ticket once you are on the tram. Insert the ticket in the small box and have it stamped. The tram ride lasts for about 15 minutes. Get out at the KATEDRAL stop and turn right up to the hill on PEHLIVANUSA. It is a steep hill and should take you less than 20 minutes.

3) Walk: If you decide to walk, please note that the roads are uphill some of the way, and quite steep. It is around a 30 minute walk and is definitely doable, but also can be challenging!
From the Railway Station head toward the tram station and keep walking past it. Cross the street HALIDA KAJTAZA and turn right towards the big intersection. At the intersection turn left on KRANJCEVICEVA and keep walking. The street will eventually become MARSALA TITA. When you reach a park to your left turn left on the street KOSEVO and then DZIDZIKOVAC. You will reach an intersection after the park, keep going straight up, but note that the street is now BIJELAVE. Go straight up until you reach ZAIMA SARCA. At the corner you will find the hostel.

From the East Sarajevo Bus Station:

1) Tram
From this bus station, take the Tram#103. You can either buy a ticket beforehand at a ticket window (1.60KM) or you can pay the tram driver directly (1.80KM). You need to validate your ticket once you are on the tram. Insert the ticket in the small box and have it stamped. The tram ride lasts at least 30 minutes. Get out at COBANIJA which is the 16th stop. Cross the street towards the park and continue on COBANIJA street. Once you cross the bridge the street is now called KULOVICA Street. Continue on this street. The street then becomes DALMATINSKA. At the end of this street, turn slight left and turn right on KEVRIN POTOK (you will walk by Pekara Mejtas which is a local bakery.) Continue straight and the street changes into ENVERA COLAKOVICA. Turn right on BJELAVE until you reach ZAIMA SARCA. The hostel is on the corner.

2) Taxi
A taxi from the East Sarajevo bus station costs about 10.00 EUR / 20.00 KM. NOTE: Pay attention to the taxi meter. View House Rules

    This is an amazing hostel! Super clean, great breakfast you can actually get full on. The hill does suck but it's worth the journey. Staff is beyond helpful and the beds and pillows are great. Pretty good shower pressure after a long day or early morning. Don't have a locker lock? Dont worry they got you! Full kitchen and patio to meet like minded individuals. Would 100 stay again!

    Hostel Kucha is a great place to stay in Sarajevo! The staff is very kind and funny. The whole hostel really had a great energy. The facilities are also amazing! Really nice kitchen and showers. The breakfast is amazing, you have a wide variety to chose from. The hostel is uphill but it's not that big of a deal...you have to burn all the burek somehow. Also it can be reached from the center by bus. I really recomend it and i will definitely be back :)

    Hostel Kucha is a fantastic hostel, really modern and clean. Breakfast is included and the beds were very comfortable. The only "problem" is that you have to walk up a pretty steep hill from the old town, but even then it only cost about 1 euro to take a taxi up so it's not that big of an issue. The staff were very helpful and gave plenty of good recommendations for places to eat and sights to see. Would definitely recommend this place. I wish I had more time to see this beautiful city!

    This may have been my favorite hostel to date. Staff was friendly, knowledgeable and super helpful! The rooms were spacious with good sized security lockers and the beds were really comfortable. I didn't cook in the kitchen but it was fully stocked and clean. Free breakfast was a great way to start the day before heading out. I liked that the atmosphere had a naturally social vibe but definitely not a party. No complaints! Will definitely be sending anyone I know heading to Sarajevo here.

    I spent Christmas here and had a great time exploring the city. Not too built-up, and with plenty of history and culture to explore.

    First solo trip and this was the second hostel stop I had. I'm use to walking and it was no joke that this hostel was on top of the hill. Wasn't too hard to navigate to the hostel from the bus station. Came to breakfast 1 hour before closing and there was practically nothing left. I didn't realized it was first come, first serve. I mean whatever since food in Sarajevo is so cheap anyways. Atmosphere was great and they told others to keep it down to allow others to sleep
