Hostelz.com's Review
If you are looking for a cheap, clean hostel with an unbeatable location and a fun relaxed environment, Hostel City Center Sarajevo is the place for you!

The Location

Literally walk out the front door and you are steps away from the heart and old center of Sarajevo -- the location couldn't be better!

Rooms and Bathrooms

Private rooms, and dorm rooms are available. However, the dorm rooms are not secure, and most dorm room doors are left open, so be sure to bring a lock for your belongings. The hostel has a cabin-like feel with clean wooden floors, angled ceilings, and skylights -- very inviting. The beds are wooden bunks -- very sturdy and quiet. On each floor is a clean shower and sink. Water temperature and pressure are excellent.

Common Spaces

The hostel has two computers with free internet, and free Wi-Fi throughout. The kitchen is clean and equipped with free soup, pasta, cereal, milk, and coffee. The best common area in the hostel is a lounge area with two soft couches (smoking is only allowed on the balcony). The second common space outside the kitchen is great for reading and relaxing. The hostel is equipped with a book exchange and several movies to view for free. The hostel has a shoes-off policy when entering -- this cuts down on dirt, noise, and creates a feeling of being home.

Summary

The location of this hostel seals the deal, and for the price it is really a great value. The front desk has a wonderful, helpful staff to help you navigate the city. If you are looking for a friendly hostel in the center of the action with helpful staff and fun people, look no further than Hostel City Center!

5   Great location, clean, good security and a social atmosphere. Located within walking distance of most attractions and in the heart of the area with restaurants, bars. The staff were all very helpful and informative. The hostel is clean and there are individual lockers in rooms as well as a card security to access the building and dorm rooms. There are a lot of steps to climb to the hostel but it's not a problem. A great hostel to stay in.  , age 42, Australian ()
1   Bedbugs, noise, rude receptionists, avoid if you can. I stayed in the flat -- part of the hostel on the ground floor, which was dirty, smelly, and loud due to bar next door. Opening windows meant exposing belongings to pedestrians. Absolute height of the stay were mean bedbugs size of small nails which bites made my face look swollen like after box match. As soon as the light goes off they crawled all over me, so I slept fully dressed. Receptionists were upset that I wake them up in the middle of the night and complain and were very rude. Their beds did not have bedbugs for sure. Bathroom was disgusting too. Were happy to leave in the morning, had a heavy time getting my deposit back from the receptionists.  , Scotland ()
4   Don't stay there if you are carrying a heavy load on your backpack It was hard to locate. the "hcc" sign was small n not very visible. then it was a 3 story climb up narrow stairs. Apart from that it is a fair good hostel with clean facilities, and wireless connection. Bring your slippers, no shoes allowed in the premises.  , singapore ()
5   Awesome I stayed here over New Year 2009 and really loved this place. It's clean and tastefully decorated throughout. There's a common room next to reception, great for socialising, free internet terminals, free Wi-Fi throughout, a guest kitchen with free tea/coffee. HCC is also right in the centre of Sarajevo as the name suggests, right next to the old town and some great bars. The staff here are the best, very friendly and very welcoming (as well as the most beautiful!). I felt more at home here than at home, and I can't wait to come back to Sarajevo.  , UK ()
5   Nice and safe I loved the place, I had heaps of fun, and I would definitely return. This is not a hostel, this is like being home. The common area is really nice. Excellent location in the heart of Sarajevo. Very clean and friendly staff. I will stay here again.  , Croatia ()
5   Positive I was very impressed with the hospitality and kindness of the staff. the hostel is new and very well set up, internet, breakfast, and location a real plus. i would recommend this hostel to anyone who wants a comfortable place with staff who go out of their way to help you. if i am back in Sarajevo again this would be the first place i would go!  , USA ()
