Property Description

Balkan Han Hostel is a colorful, social hostel in the heart of Sarajevo. Han, a word dating back from the Ottoman Empire, means lodging for travelers and their caravans. We believe this describes our beautiful, eclectic hostel well as it is a home for travelers from all over the world. :)

Our hostel is centrally located; less than 200m from Main Street, nearby local bus and tram stops, and within 10 minutes walk to the Old Town.
We have 5 door rooms with single and double bunk beds. There is one private four-person dorm with a private bathroom and one two-person apartment with a private bathroom and kitchen. Linen, towels, and private lockers are provided for all guests, and there is free wifi throughout the hostel. Our hostel has a beautiful, large outdoor patio where guests can drink, relax, and socialize with each other. The bar has local beer, wine, and rakija available for guests at affordable prices. There is a large self-service kitchen with a stove, fridges, microwave and kettle. There are multiple common seating areas including a living room.

Our staff are international travelers who are friendly and polite, they have great recommendations for local restaurants, bars, cafes, and attractions.

Welcome! :)

Had a great stay in Balkan Han, staff were very friendly and let me keep my bags there when arriving on the night bus from Belgrade. Met some great people and close to the train station if you are visiting Mostar afterwards.
