Interaction with guests

Too addicted to travel to live without it, I opened up a small hostel so I could keep a finger on the pulse of the wanderlust coursing through the human vein. Both I and my small staff love to meet new people and excited to hear your travel stories and introduce you to the best of Sarajevo through recommendations tailored to your interests. We look forward to getting to know you over a coffee in the kitchen or at a grill night in the garden. Come on over. :)

Out of respect to our neighbors, I ask that you be quiet outside (on the street, balcony, garden or terrace) after 22:00. The living room is open all night for late night chats though!

This is a non-smoking house on the room levels, but there's plenty of outdoor areas to light up if you get the urge.

Great hostel. Really friendly atmosphere and well thought through - ample facilities, clear instructions. Awesome staff and ideal location away from the party, but close enough to walk to everything. I was travelling on my own and whilst was able to enjoy a little private time, it was welcoming to have people around to share a beer or coffee with when I felt like company. Lots of info available for local events, tours, train schedules, etc. Definitely recommend.

Cat was very warmly communicative prior to my arrival and very friendly and helpful when I arrived. The people staying at the hostel are very interesting and friendly as well. Its located in a very charming and quiet area of the city that's very close to everything. The views from my room were spectacular. When I went out to meet friends on a rainy evening, Cat loaned me an umbrella and showed me a lost and found where I could find clean socks. Great experience and helpful, friendly environment.

Ed and I had a lovely stay at Cat's. It was much more than a standard hostel. Loved the privacy of the cubicles despite sharing a space with several others. The only gripe we had was the walk up the long and steep slope but I'm fairly certain we got fitter in the 3 days! Plus the view was definitely worth it.

There isn't enough time to adequately share how amazing my experience was at The Doctor's House. My two night reservation turned to four and could have easily gone another week. Cat has put her years of traveling experience into cultivating the perfect place to rest, meet new friends, and explore the wonderfulness that is Sarajevo. Cat really ensures her guests are well looked after and has a remedy for any question. She is gracious with her time as is her staff. Any experienced travel will immediately understand why this is the only place to stay in Sarajevo. Can't wait to be back.

Cozy bed, warm room, and the facilities are very clean. The host and staffs are helpful and nice as well. Besides, the Sarajevo city touring guide from Cat is informative. Location is some steps away from bus stops if you get to city from airport by trolleybus, but in exchange for this is a great view from balcony. :)

American by passport, nomad at heart. I've live my life moving around, but when I met Sarajevo, I found one city that I never wanted to leave. I love it here and it won't take you long to figure out why if you come visit!
