Reviewed 25 May 2016

The people in charge of this hostel were great! we stayed for 5 nights, couldn't choose a better place! we had booked a dorm room - we are a couple - but the owner took us in stead to a suite with private bathroom. I was looking forward to stay in Sarajevo, and this was turned our staying even better. The hostel is located just in front of Bascarsija, centre of sarajevo. I really enjoyed my staying and will cherish my good memories at this city and accommodation. Thanks for everything ;)

The hostel gave us a warm welcome from one of the staff members - a really nice and helpful fellow. The building was tucked in the city center, near the main street but still it's feels as it's a bit further from it. The location is fantastic. Everything that's happening in the city is close by. The con is that there is a club nearby and people sensitive to noise might not enjoy the night as it can get loud. The cleanness was an issue. The room has not been properly cleaned and many things seemed to be left untouched since few nights (smelly fridge, the shower and apartment in general). The sheets were new though. Also in the bathroom there was no shades on windows so people from the club can admire your beauty under the shower or see you flush things down the toilet. Of course you can figure something out and it won't be an issue. Otherwise the room was really spacious and could accommodate four people and the saloon part was still available for all. We were staying in the four bed apartment upstairs.

I was looking for a place to stay that was close to the centre of the city and was cheap. I got what I wanted, the hostel is 1 minute of walking away from Baščaršija and the room is really cheap. The bed was really comfy and the owner was extremely friendly and helpful.
However, the room we got was a little bit unclean as there were some spider webs around the top corners of the room. Though the bathroom was probably the worst thing in here. It looked unclean and I had to wipe the toilet seats several times with wet wipes.
Like I said, this place is great if you aren't too picky about everything. Perfect location, great owner, comfy beds.

We were in 5 person apartment on top floor in hostel. The huge apartment was clean and new, freshly painted, with all new stuff such as furniture.The hostel staff is very friendly and polite.Only problem is limited hot water (that means if the supply is empty it takes time to heat again) but enough to shower very often.I was very pleased to stay there and the price of 10 euros per night per person is cheap.Sarajevo is beautiful city.We will come again.I will recommend to stay there:D

Stayed for 2 nights in a private double room. The location is great, just 1 min walk to the old town streets with all major atractions, restaurants and terraces. Clean and basic. Bathroom was alright, though would need some redoing. There was no common area and lacked a hostel feeling.
