Everything about this hostel was super amazing! Lets start with its name, then with its staff. I can easily say, that they became my friends. All of them, esp Rebecca and the manager who is the friendliest person ever, were awesome, and helpful and very highly knowledgeable of the history and culture and museums and events in Sarajevo. Furthermore, the beds are so comfy - check pics, they are unlike the economy bunker beds. Very clean rooms and bathrooms. And BEST LOCATION in Sarajevo!

Positive things: the staff was nice, it’s a super location and it has the basic things. (Towel, plug, kitchen). I just don’t understand why in hostel world they offered a room for WOMAN and the hostel only has mixed rooms. That is fake advertisement. And when I ask in reception the answer was “you should read your emails”. Again it’s fake advertisement. And I hope that as I “should” read my emails, people “should” read this review.

Hostel rooms are tidy and comfortable. Lady at reception was pretty direct but just don’t get on her bad side. Nice location but no atmosphere. Not a social hostel in comparison to others around Sarajevo.
