I had a nice stay at Markale. the room was comfortable, with its own bathroom, which was great. Excellent shower, the downside being just having to hold the shower handle all the time.
Staff was always friendly and helpful and the hostels' location couldn't be better. Kitchen is good too. Excellent place overall.
Good experience , friendly people. Thanks harun for the time together. I will visit again.
We stayed in the annex which included a spacious, comfortable, clean bedroom with a private bathroom across the passage. There was also access to a shared kitchen and laundry.
Our hostess was very friendly and gave us a warm welcoming when we arrived tired in the late afternoon. She gave good advice on what to see and do in the old town
The annex was in a perfect position for a quick and easy walk into the old town. Parking and traffic could be a problem, but we chose to leave out car in a secure parking area close to the hostel.
We recommend this accommodation to anyone visiting Sarajevo.

We had a great stay at the Markale Guest House. Samir was very communicative and helpful. Our bus arrived quite late due to some complications, but someone was still waiting for us when we arrived. Great location, five minutes from the centre of the Old Town. I would definitely recommend Markale.
What an awesome place .. The staff and accommodation are first rate .. It is beautifully maintained and cleaned to a very high standard .. Every facility has been supplied and in perfect working order .. I loved my time In Sarajevo thanks to all these things and such a beautiful city to be in ... So happy :)
We had a fantastic experience at Markale Guest House. The room and en suite bathroom were spacious and spotlessly clean and the location couldn't have been better. The area it's located in seems really safe. The kitchen area was another highlight, it was huge and really well equipped! When we arrived we were offered a cup of Bosnian coffee by the really friendly receptionist. She gave us some useful tips on what to see in the city. We also met the owner's brother who gave us some more tips and an excellent restaurant recommendation. Thanks for everything!
we spent 2 days in Markale Hostel and it has been a grat experience. The hostel is nice and clean (despite the fact that the entrance doesn't look so good), it is located in the center of Sarajevo, near a secure parking and a supermarker.
The girls who work for the hostel have been extremly nice ad helpfull.
We totally recommend Markale.
