I had the fortune to stay in this hostel for one night. This is not a simple hostel, this is a real experience. What I liked the most was the authenticity of this spot, and of the people who manage it. 01 and his wife Julia are extremely kind and available to answer questions about their lives during war, even if it's really hard to remember some episodes. We had the opportunity to watch documentaries in the bunker that they used during the war and speaking with them was really educative. The day after we also join a tour in the mountains over Sarajevo, where 01 showed us the defence lines, bunkers etc, always remembering his own experience. Take your time to reflect about what you'll see and listen from these beautiful people.
