Sarajevo's mix of cultures seems to have given its inhabitants a certain wit, despite the seemingly serious past and frustration with many years of near political and economic stand-still. Being a bit stuck in time means the city has its own aura. It's not easy to absorb the recent war and ethnic and religious conflict that plague this city, and many years of coexistence and general getting along juxtapose the relatively recent violence. For an impression of this recent history you might visit the Tunnel Museum in Butmir at the airport to gain insight into daily life during the war.
Visitors who need a break from the intense history of Sarajevo may find refuge in exploring its diverse cultures. Visit the historic town center and mingle around Turkish cafes smoking water pipe (hookah) or watch craftspeople. This city is particularly interesting for anyone interested in religion, with plenty of houses of worship to visit. You might head up the hills and stroll through cemeteries, with a shockingly beautiful view of town and on to the Yellow Fortress. When outside of town, do take seriously any signs about land mines.
There are lots of hostels in Sarajevo. Hospitality is played up many places in Bosnia and most hostels have a very laid-back atmosphere without being over the top. The size and type of hostels varies greatly, from institutional buildings to little places crammed into historic apartments. Sarajevo hostels tend to be helpful both on your arrival and with giving directions through the often nameless streets. If you have a tight schedule, you might want to stay near town, as public transportation in Sarajevo (trams and buses) is slow and confusing. Taking the tram around town is a worthy experience -- just know you may wait a while or have a long walk to get back.

Haris Youth Hostel
"Haris Youth Hostel is like a home away from home. The common areas are very cosy, and the owner (Haris) is very dedicated to his job. Sarajevo is a great city, but it will be even better staying at this hostel. The Location The hostel is located about ten minutes' walking from the old town. It is located on a little hill. The positive of this is that the view from the hostel terrace is nice, and it is very near a great spot to watch the...
"Hostel Ljubicica represents great value with a central location that is ideal for backpackers looking for a long-term stay in Sarajevo. Friendly, welcoming staff are able to organize tours of the city and the surrounding attractions, or if they can't organize this, they are able to direct you toward a agency that can help with this. A side note to this review is that there seems to be a difference between Ljubicica Hostel itself and Ljubicica...
"Hostel Posillipo -- another place with good directions. Located right next to a tourist information center, bakery, grocery store, tram stop, and the Turkish Quarter, this hostel does not follow the usual hostel road. Likely because tourists haven't really "found" Sarajevo, it feels more like you are staying in a hotel rather than the more typical party atmosphere of a hostel. While some find this a welcome change, if you like the fast-paced...

"I loved Hostel Enjoy! - I have traveled all around Europe, and this was definitely one of the best hostels I've stayed at.

"Clean place in a good location for staying - The hostel is in a very good location and easy to find. Rooms and showers are pretty clean and the furniture not old.
