    had a great stay at the residence rooms! it’s a family owned hostel and that definitely shows. the owners are so sweet and welcoming towards everyone. it was super clean, there’s only one shower but it was a greattttt shower! if you’re tall like me, get a top bunk lol i made the mistake of getting the bottom bunk and hit my head so much. the common area is super big and home-like. wifi worked great. overall it was definitely a great stay :) thanks for having me!

    Really cool old school building with high ceilings and traditional furnishings. Loved relaxing on the couches in the living room. Not a party hostel. The people working here are friendly and super helpful. The place is immaculately clean.

    Great location in the middle of all the major sites but unfortunately above some pubs. Just bring ear plugs. Safety is great. Family that owns the place is super nice and helpful. Soft blankets and good bed

    The staff are great and really accommodating, will do anything for you, thank you! Great city! Nice sized room! Nice hostel! But severe lack of plug points in your room!! And it’s a very quiet hostel which is both great and bad at the same time, couldn’t meet any new people but got a really good nights sleep!

    This place is very cosy, feels like a family home (and it partially is, there are always family members cooking traditional Bosnian dishes in the kitchen). Definitely more of a guest house than a hostel as there isn’t really a social atmosphere - but if you want a nice place to sleep that is close to plenty of Sarajevo’s best bars / pubs then this is the place! (A little on the loud / bright side because of this but it was fine) It’s also very clean!!

    I enjoyed my stay here. The staff were very helpful - the owner even personally drove me to the airport so I could catch an early morning flight. The rooms are large with high ceilings and the location is right in the centre of the city near bars, cafes and walking distance from all the major attractions. The only things that could improve are ensuring each bed has access to a power point, and adding curtains to limit the noise at night because the hostel is near bars and clubs.

    Very Good

    Comfortable beds and clean. Really good location. Not much atmosphere and the check out procedure is a bit confusing. The guy in my room checked out early and the rest of us were in the room packing up our stuff, but the staff already were coming in to clean up at 9am. This resulted in them throwing my bus tickets in the bin. I then had to go through the bin as there was no one to help me when I left, which was still by the normal check out time. Not the most nice vibe, but good for a comfy bed

    Very Good

    Like many Hostels in Sarajevo, it's essentially built into an former apartment residence. The older gentleman was nice enough. I had a good stay because I had good people in my room... But noise from the nearby club was a little bit of an issue. I have decided not to stay again in part due to their strange baggage storage policy - in which you would need to pay 2 Marks per hour to keep a bag there post check out. This is a granted service at the any other hostel.

    It felt like we were staying at nasty grandparents place. No atmosphere at all. It was creepily quiet except for the poundjng music from the bars around. Staff were watching everything you were doing. Actually made us feel quite uncomfortable. The transfer they arranged for us wasn't a mini bus. It was a over filled hatchback which was driven dangerously. No secure storage. Location is great. Very clean. Good kitchen if they let you use it.
