Staff is good, you can contact them 7/24, rooms are good and clean. I didn't have breakfast but the kitchen is open for use. Location is quite good which is nearby almost everything and you can try the delicous pizzas of the restaurant next door.

One bathroom/WC on eight beds, no privacy, no access on car, no parking, no privacy. So if You are nice company of good friends who want just to have shelter for night and not think about... More

This hostel has a massive bed bug problem. My partner and I both got horrific bites, met people on our travels who had many more bites than we did. Terrible rooms, the only way to get to the outside area was through the room so was never locked and woken up at all hours with people going through. Staff played... More

After a nine hours bus drive from Split under a big rain, I was more than happy to land in this great hostel. I felt immediately at ease. The hostel is built and decorated with good taste and is very functional and comfortable (cosy beds, sofas, nice bathrooms, big kitchen). Faruk and Haris are lovely and generous guys, and they...

This hostel was a very big disappointment. We stayed here with a large group of friends in May. At first everything went really well and the staff was very friendly. One day many of us noticed that there was a lot of money missing from the lockers. The staff didn’t care at all about this and they refused to let... More

This hostel is placed right at the city center. The location and the people working there are the only good things about the hostel. They really make an effort to make your stay best as possible. Unfortuntely there are to few bathrooms and toilets, the breakfast is not something to brag about and not worth the extra marks. The dorm... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hostel “Heart of Sarajevo” is a newly opened hostel, and like the name itself already hints, it is in the heart and centre of Sarajevo. It is situated in a city that radiates authenticity combining the well-known spirit of its people for whom pleasure is highly important. "Heart of Sarajevo" is surrounded by some of the best and most popular cafes, restaurants, bars, clubs and exclusive shops, which will for sure help you to find the true excitement and joy of Sarajevo. The main pedestrian zone of Sarajevo is only located a few meters from the hostel, while just a relaxed a five-minutes walk away lies the old city – ‘Bascarsija’ - with all of its traditional fragrant dishes and desserts. This part of the city abounds authenticity due to the presence of the most important religious monuments - Catholic Cathedral, Old Orthodox Church and Bey Mosque. The hostel itself encompasses a 200 square meters area with an eight-bed dorm, a ten-bed dorm, barbecue area and private three-bed room; the later can be adjusted to ones preferences, and transformed into five-bed room if desired. Guests have at their disposal computer with free Internet access, living room, TV, kitchen, bathroom, large terrace, and wonderful garden that can provide some coolness on hot summer days. Here one can escape into serious relaxation and peace while the city beyond is bustling with people. Our ambiance exudes simplicity, yet it is interwoven with modern touches, and next to that it can be fully adapted to the needs and desires of guests. We hope that you will be able to confide in this yourself. ... more   less
