You do get what you pay for. And I paid almost nothing for this place but I still liked it. I took a bus from Zagreb overnight to Sarajevo and arrived at 5am and they kindly let me check in right away and I had a great long nap before I started my day. Felt like I got a free...

You pay for what you get. It is a cheap hostel. It is also quite dirty and dingy. If you want to save a couple of Euro a night, this is the place for you. If you want cleanliness, keep looking, there are a lot more options around.

We arrived to Sarajevo during the film festival, so everything was booked or exremely expensive for backpackers. Our last chance was Ljubicica; we thought we would stay in the downtown accommodation but that one was full, so they sent us to their other building '5min walking'. Of course, it didn't take 5min, we crossed the river and walked up the...

We had a terrible night here in a 14 bed mixed dorm. There was no air con, fan or even window in the room and everything smelt of smoke as everyone was smoking in the room next door. The bathrooms were filthy and there was no water between 11pm-5am. Only upside was the location and that we didn't waste too...

We stayed there for two nights. The lady in reception is very helpful and motherly. We like her a lot. Although it is a bit packed, it is relaxed. Better if there are more cooking utensils in the kitchen.

Ljubicica offers flats for tourists in the old city in Sarajevo. Very good location, low price and very nice and helpful staff. I liked the fact that it's not a typical hostel (a separate building for tourists only) but flats inside buildings where local people are living:) They have a basic kitchen and bathroom. I was with my 2 year...

This hostel is very cheap and not particularly nice. They have a lot of different buildings, and most of them are well located but the staff wasn't very welcoming to us and the beds were average. I would recommend staying there for one or two nights if you want to save money.

If you are on a budget this place is excellent. We paid 5 pounds per night for a four bed dorm, which is excellent. The staff were lovely and extremely helpful. Stayen here also allowed us to have extra money to do this in the city like tours. I would defiantly stay here if I returned.

I've stayed at this hostel twice within a two month period and had two different experiences. Honestly, the location is the only redeeming feature of this place. First of all, the staff will ask for your passport as security when you check in, which they keep until you leave. Do not leave it with them! When I was there, the...
