The Hostelz.com Review

Travellers Home Hostel is a nice and comfortable place to stay in Sarajevo. Close to the city center, it has the charm of being a relatively small place, but it is still big enough so you can meet some people. This hostel has everything a hostel needs to have, making it a wonderful place to stay.

The Location

The hostel is located very close to the city center (five minutes' walk to the old market, one minute from the main street), so you won't have to walk much to get somewhere. Still it is quiet so you'll have a good sleep. A tram station is one hundred meters from the hostel -- one of the lines there gets you directly to the main bus and train station.

Rooms and Bathrooms

The dorm rooms are clean and nicely designed. As the hostel is located in a refurbished Austro-Hungarian building, it has high ceilings which gives it a very nice atmosphere. There are two dorms with four bunk beds each, so eight people per dorm. Under the bed are spacious lockers and on the bed you have a reading light. There are no private rooms. There is one bathroom each for males and females. Both are clean and good looking, the male bathroom is a little small, though.

Common Spaces

The reception also has two sofas, a TV with cable, and two computers with internet, making it a nice place to hang out with other guests and/or the staff. The whole hostel is a nonsmoking establishment, however there is a small balcony for these who feel the urge. In another room, there is a kitchen/lounge with a big table seating eight people. You can meet nice people here and go out for some of the party in Sarajevo or as well have a nice evening in and prepare some nice dinner for you and your newly acquired friends.

Summary

Overall this is a very good option to stay in Sarajevo. Compare to some other hostels in Europe, this one is definitely rather at the top-end concerning its amenities, but with a convenient Eastern European price. This hostel is recommended!

Perfect Location and staff
We stayed 3 days in Sarajevo, and the hostel was a pleasure. Very nice staff, good rooms, really comfortable, and common rooms with kitchen, very good. We enjoyed. Absolutely recommendable.

Good basics; unlike other IYHA poor late night noise control
central location; very clean; big lockers; good security; accessible kitchen; nice staff. indifferent breakfast (cornflakes + bread/jam). unlike other IYHA poor late night noise control made sleeping difficult.

The Best Hostel Ever
I have stayed ın around 30 hostels all over Europe but this one was, by far, the best. Simply a combination of relaxing atmosphere, cool and super friendly staff, perfect location and very reasonable prices.
