Good location, right in the center of the Old Turkish Quarter and clean rooms. However make sure you call or email your arrival time as no one was here when we arrived, lucky for us our cab driver waited and we were able to have him call for someone to come. 15 min later we were in our room. They have a book exchange. No towels though or ability to make a cup of tea.
We thought overall it was a good value though at $50.00 per night for two.
We stayed at Hostel Posillipo in Sarajevo for two nights. It was nothing fancy but alright, not really a hostel-like atmosphere, more like a private pension. We never met any other travellers here, only the friendly owner who was out smoking all the time when he was at home. One night he wasn't home so his son replaced him. Both wanted to buy our car which was parked right in front of the "reception". ;)
We slept in a private double room with comfortable beds and enough space. The bathroom was shared and it could have needed some cleaning but I have seen worse hostel bathrooms in my life! Make sure to bring your own toilet paper as there never was any available.
Unique Quality: The location of the hostel is great - after a walk of maybe 1 minute you are at the famous fountain on Bašcaršija square. Very convenient. A tram stop is also almost in front of the door.
Talking of "in front of the door": The hostel is located in a backyard street called Besarina Cikma. The building in front of it, at the main street (Mula Mustafe Baseskije), was hit by a shell in the war and has no wall on the back. This unfortunately seems to attract some creepy fellows, I saw quite a few people who either used it as a toilet or as a place to stay. A bit dodgy unfortunately...
But apart from that it's ok here and the price is ok when compared to hotel prices in Sarajevo! We paid approx. 60 km per night for the room (30 EUR).
Directions: Across the street from the main square, turn left into Mula Mustafe Baseskije coming from the south. The hostel is on your right behind the two hostel agencies.
Hostel Posillipo is a new hostl located in the oldest part of Sarajevo-Bašcaršija.
It is a 25 meter walk from Bašcaršija’s main tram-station, 35 meters from one of Sarajevo top monuments, the Sebilj fountain.
Within the hostel complex they have an old-fashioned Bosnian resturant, where the guests can enjoy their free time, organize parties, and eat.
