The balcony rooms have amazing views of the Balkans. The mattress was surprisingly comfortable for a hostel.

Would recommend.
Stayed here in Ramadan for 4 nights. Excellent place to stay not far from travel links and restaurants. Large mosque 10 minutes away. Owner could not have been more helpful or accommodating. Nice single room with bathroom and free wifi. My room also had a balcony.

Great Stay, Friendly Staff, Low Prices
Hostel Gonzo has a nice location, is well priced, and the staff are very helpful and outgoing! While it is a Hostel, the rooms were spacious, the bed comfy, and the showers worked well. The staff were particularly helpful - I don't speak much Bosnian, but they did their best to provide tips for getting around, and were very willing to help make my stay as comfy as possible. If you don't mind being in a Hostel, this is probably as good a set of rooms as you can find for the money in Sarajevo!

Great customer service.
The service was great. Host made sure I had everything to be comfortable. I got sick while in Bosnia and the host took me to the hospital. The customer service is a priority. I had a great experience staying here. I definitely would stay again.

You get what you pay for
It was a ok play for a cheap price, I had to stay for 1 night so, it worked out well for me, I would suggest this place for short stays, but for longer, umm, it depends on your taste

4/10 Fair

Really nice helpful staff, long way from OldTown
Booked one night but was considering staying 3. The staff are absolutely lovely, very helpful and nice. A cold breakfast spread is also included in the price which is rare at this level / price. The hotel is a very long way from the Old Town, so you have to catch a bus or tram, which are about 5 /8 minutes walk from the hotel. The rooms are very basic but come as private with their own bathroom and tv which for the price is very good. The area is very quiet but the walls are very thin so although it was quiet outside, I could hear snoring and activities in rooms both sides of me.
