  • Description


    Hostel is a project of four friends and our main goal is to merge our affection for Sarajevo, love for meeting and socializing with joyful foreigners and to round it up with enabling local artists and craftsman to present their work to the world through our hostel. We are situated in center city in old Austro-Hungarian building. The property is close to several well-known attractions, 800 metres from Sebilj Fountain, a 2-minute walk from Sarajevo National Theatre and a 7-minute walk from the hostel in Sarajevo. The rooms have a balcony with city views. The rooms at the hostel come with a seating area. Every room is equipped with a shared bathroom with free toiletries and a hair dryer.
