I have stayed in Sarajevo several times and have brought groups to the city, and each time I have used, and would recommend, the Pansion Lion. The main reason they are so excellent is the quality of the staff - they are some of the most helpful and kind I have experienced staying in any city and their English is excellent. More than once they have assisted me in sorting out tricky logistical issues for a group - including getting advance booking documentation for a visa issue before we arrived - at much hassle to themselves.
The second reason why they get my highest review is that the hostel is designed to be quiet and pleasant - all the rooms are lovely and they make a real effort to keep the place spotlessly clean. Unfortunately in recent times the 'quiet' part of the hostel is disrupted by the music played by other businesses in the square, but I sincerely hope that this does not put off any visitors as the comfort is worth it. Of course, the location is also a great benefit as you are right in the centre of Baščaršija
