Haris Youth Hostel is up a big hill. Buses up the hill are infrequent. Taxis don't want to pay for such a short ride. It's a pain to get your bags up and down the huge hill to reach the hostel. If you can look past the climb, make a reservation at one of Europe's best hostels.
The hostel itself was clean and quiet. There were about eighteen beds spread between three dorm rooms, and there were two toilets plus one shower. Haris is the young owner and he is passionate about making sure his guests have a great stay while learning about Bosnian history. During the summer the hostel often has barbecues on hot summer nights, which take place at a scenic viewpoint allowing you panoramic views of the city. If you're not up for a barbecue you can still meet other travelers in the large common room or on the outdoor terrace. There is a kitchen for guest use as well as some computers (they were not operational during my visit, but the hostel wifi was working for those who brought their own devices).
One of the highlights of anyone's trip to Sarajevo should be a city tour with Haris, which I will cover in a Things to Do tip.
