When you arrive this family-hostel you will most likely enter from the main street, but the few steps walking to the door takes you into a completely different world - the gate to the hostel is also the gate to the heart of the old city.
The reception and the rooms are decorated in a warm charming style, and everywhere you go, new details are to be discovered. Even the toilet seats have fresh, colorful decorations! All rooms are different, and the place is very clean.
But what really needs to be mentioned, is the service. They go out of their way to help you with absolutely everything. They called the bank after the ATM ate my card, they fixed me cheap transport to Belgrade, and they informed me about the free walking tour starting just a few minutes away. They also provide free internet and free citymaps.
Since it's located in the lively old city, with bars and restaurants everywhere, you of course can't expect the same nightly silence as outside the city - but who actually choose a location like this for silence, anyway? This is where you stay to feel the pulse of the old city, and to be in the middle of it all. If I ever go back to Sarajevo, I will certainly stay here again.

Went in with my brother looking for a room to stay one night, Gina welcomed me on the reception, a huge smile on her face, showed me around and instantly made a discount for us cause its not the big season yet and helped us book a flight from an agency she knows! Rooms were incredibly nice the whole place seemed like home! In the heart of sarajevo, best vibes ever, extremely helpful people!! I fell in love with this hostel ! Im definitely coming back with my friends next year! Ps: we stayed 2 more nights there!

This guesthouse is situated in the heart of Sarajevo. You can easily reach the center by crossing the Barshashia the district. The location is beautiful, the rooms comfortable and clean. Price unbeatable quality.
Very bad experience

We planned to spent two nights in pension lion. The unique private room with bathroom is super small, on the ground floor, with an independent entrance directly from a courtyard of a bar. The manager said to me that the bar close at 1am, instead at 3am there was hundreds of guys laughing e shouting. Results: impossible to sleep. No air conditioning, no private parking, the manager and another women that work here not so kind. We left the pension, no refunds possible, said the woman. So we pay in another hotel. STAY AWAY FROM PENSION LION!

We stayed in the room 11 (The Love Room), the only room with a private ``bathroom``. It is extremely small, you can barely walk in it, it`s only a little bit bigger that the double bed. Also there is no closet, so you have to put your clothes on the floor, but than again there is no space for that. It has a small window that looks to a passage that is very frequent, so it`s not recommendable to open it, therefore there is not much fresh air or light in the room. There is a fan though, which was so noisy, we couldn`t use it either. Tthe bathroom is also very small and there is not even a single shelf or a hanger for towels in it. We stayed there for a weekend and we couldn`t sleep at all because people were singing, fighting, drinking and shouting in front of the room. The staff was unprofessional and didn`t do anything about it. The only good thing is the location, but then again if you travel by car, you have to pay a parking lot 20KM per day and when you add that to the price of the hostel, you realise that you can find a way better place for less money. All in all we don`t recommend staying in this hostel.
