We are not just a hostel, we are a big happy family. This is our moto! This is how we feel while at work and our guests feel it once they step in.
We are two couples Aida & Haris and Alvina & Sead and we are owners of Hostel Vagabond. 🙂
Alvina and Aida grew up in tourism business, Pansion Rose in Mostar was their home until war started in Bosnia 1992. Therefore all the love and passion for tourism business. Aida studied tourism and finally is doing what she loves the most, runing the best hostel in Sarajevo. Alvina studied economy and she is folowing the whole business behind the scenes. If you see her behind the reception desk consider yourself lucky, because she is not only good with numbers, but her hospitality skills are amazing. Sead studied journalism and is also a professional photographer, but also the man in charge of all the marketing for the business.
In 1992 unfortunately we had to move and change a home, so the war made us flee for our lives and we ended up in Sweden and Germany. Sweden and Gothenburg became Aidas and Haris home for next 17 years. Ja, vi talar flytande svenska! ( Yes, we are fluent in Swedish!). Alvina lived there shorter period, but also good in Swedish languare beside English. Sead is an expert in German language beside Bosnian and English.
Gothenburg is the city where Aida and Haris met, and he is absolutely THE best tour guide in Sarajevo. Yes, we do have tours as well… Check them out on this website or www.travelplus.ba. Haris is a drummer as well and he is playing rock ‘n’ roll in various pubs around the city. Very ofter we take our guests and join the live music..
We all love to travel and use every minute of our spare time to do so, and yes hostels are the best places to be at…
So, we told you our part of the story, now we are waiting for you to book and let us know your story.
