“Fantastic stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2013

I had a fantastic stay at Markale. It is located in the middle of the city and within walking distance to the old town and different sights. The hostel is clean and comfortable, with excellent kitchen facilities and friendly owners who are willing to sit down and chat. A tour of the city was arranged with Kenan and he shared details about life in Sarajevo and was willing to answer any questions that we had. I would highly recommend this hostel and hope to be back soon.

Room Tip: I stayed facing the main street and although it was noisy with the window open, it was comfortable a...

The title says it all. Located right in the middle of Sarajevo, it is possible to walk the entire city from the property. The actual guesthouse is clean and well appointed. The beds are especially comfortable for this type of accommodation. Really though, the great hospitality is what seals it for me. The owner and his employee were just the best. From the excellent homemade liquor to the great conversation, I can't recall ever having a more comfortable visit. While I usually prefer four start and above hotels when traveling in Europe, I would never consider going with different accommodations in Sarajevo. This place is as close to perfect as it gets. As an added benefit, the bakery across the street is open 24 hours and serves excellent Bosnian pastries. You'll be sorry if you fail to make at least one late night visit!

Delighted we chose this place to stay . We were met at the railway station and taken to the hostel where we immediately felt to be at home. We stayed for 7 nights.Excellent quiet central position,near to the old town next door to the main markets,.extremley comfortable room spotlessly clean.Perhaps this can be found in other hostels .What is special here is the courtesy,time and interest Adnam shows to all his guests.From taking time answering questions about the past history,to checking bustime tables ,making forward bookings etc etc.As older travellors we felt entirely comfortable and so well looked after.This is a great place to stay for young and old alike

What a great hostel! They have everything you need and if not, they are willing to go and get it. The rooms are very clean, big and comfortable. Most of all Adnan and the rest of the staff are willing to help out where ever they can. Adnan went above and beyond for me personally last week when I left something behind. I am forever grateful and would highly recommend this hostel!

The owner Adnan makes this place so good. Before you arrive you can get fast replies by email to any questions you have. On arrival you are greeter and the rooms are clean and cosy. A quiet hostel just minutes walk from Old Town, public transport and cheap parking. Great place to stay.

I first stayed in Markale Guesthouse in August 2012, originally planning on spending four nights - and ended up staying nine. Then I decided to return seven months later, staying another six nights. This should begin to tell you something about this wonderful guesthouse. Not only is it clean, comfortable, and very convenient (being within easy walking distance of almost everything you might want to see in Sarajevo), it is run by perhaps the two warmest, most welcoming Sarajevans you could imagine. During both my stays I was made to feel like not simply a paying guest, but a friend. They bent over backwards to make me feel at home and to introduce me to their fascinating city and country. I know I will return to Sarajevo - and in large part this will be due to the hospitality I experienced at the Markale Guesthouse.

After "budget" traveling in many cities over many years, I have to say Markale is probably the cleanest, most well-run, and most hospitable guest house that I have experienced in any country. I wish we could have stayed longer!
