Description - Hostel

In a charming building, built in the Austro-Hungarian period, young architects and designers refurbished the space and shaped a hostel that tells you a story of the event that initiated the First World War and forever marked Sarajevo on the map of the world – the assassination of the Austro-Hungarian archduke and Royal Prince Franz Ferdinand and his wife Sophie. Every room in the hostel is authentic and you can choose to sleep in the Franz Ferdinand Room, Sophie Chotek Room, the Young Bosnia Room or the assassin Gavrilo Princip Room or rather, take the romantic room of the couple in love, the Sophie and Franz Room.

From the quiet street where the Franz Ferdinand Hostel is, everything is close at hand. The street directs you to the main pedestrian zone. The most popular gathering places, clubs and restaurants in the city, are in the street right across it. The old part of the city, Baščaršija, is only a couple of minutes walking distance away from our hostel, and the distance is approximately the same to the center of the Sarajevo festivals, by which the city became well known in the after the war period. If you want to see all the landmarks of the city, which we cordially recommend, from the Franz Ferdinand Hostel, you can take a short walk to most of them.

Apart from a comfortable bed, clean and air-conditioned room and bathroom, irresistible design and the central location, we offer you a continental breakfast included in the price. Our kind and friendly staff’s priority is your safety, entertainment and good and economical fun time in Sarajevo. On our premises, you will be in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere and there is no question you can ask for which we will not at least try to find an answer. Alongside with our always available staff, we have designed supplement services to round your stay in Sarajevo, from the transportation and parking to the professional guides on your touristic trips. If you are looking for peace, privacy or you want to meet new people and acquire friends, if you are young or elderly, come to the Franz Ferdinand Hostel in Sarajevo!
