Hostel Franz Ferdinand is a newly opened hostel located in the very heart of Sarajevo. If you are looking for a comfortable accommodation in the center, easy on the pocketbook too, to sleep in a private rooms or mixed dorms – look no further.

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.

Prices are per person per night.
