Excellent value accommodation in Mostar. Feb 05, 2017
I stayed at Hostel Miran for 2 nights during a visit to Mostar in May 2007.

My friend and I paid just 44 KM (16 GBP) per night for a twin room with kitchenette and bathroom in what was effectively a family home.

Location

Miran actually owns two properties. One of these is located at Pere Lazetica 13 in the Carina area of Mostar. This is the property that is featured on www.hostelbookers.com (where I booked our room) and where I assumed that we would be staying. The other is located just a few hundred metres away at Salke Sestica 14 in the Mazoljice area of the city, and this is where we actually ended up staying.

Both of these are located in Mostar's old town, about half way between the bus/train stations and Mostar's famous old bridge. Both the stations and the bridge are about 10 minutes walk away, while the nearest shops and restaurants are a 2 minute walk away.

Bedroom

Our twin room included two comfortable, but small, single beds, a large TV, lots of antique looking wooden furniture (a coffee table, a glass fronted cupboard, lots of wooden drawers) and a small kitchenette (with a large fridge, an oven, cutlery and crockery).

Our room was located on the property's ground floor, right next to the family's living quarters. We had exclusive use of a small shower room which was also located on the ground floor.

The room was clean and we received clean towels each day, as well as crisp, clean white bed sheets and blankets.

There was a selection of English language novels in a small bookcase in our room, but we weren't there long enough to ever pick them up.

The guesthouse and its owners:

I cannot speak highly enough of young Miran who owns this property along with his family. He is one of the most friendly and helpful people you could ever wish to meet.

Even before our arrival in Mostar, he had sent me a few text messages to find out what time our bus would be arriving in the city and to ensure that he was there waiting for us upon arrival. True to his word, he and his girlfriend were waiting on the platform when we arrived and ushered us into the back of their car for the short journey to their home.

Upon arrival at their home, we were greeted by the grandmother of the family who welcomed us with large glasses of ice cold fruit juice (a refreshing, sugar-free Herzegovinan speciality). We sat at a small table in their shaded yard while Miran provided us with a map and a brief insight into the town's attractions. We chatted about the 1990s war (or rather Miran did, and we listened silently before agreeing with him that it was "a crazy war") and about Miran's obsession with the local football team Velez Mostar!

When we told Miran that we'd be heading to Sarajevo by train a few days later, he found us a copy of the train timetable and offered to phone his friend who owns a hostel in Sarajevo. The following morning, our accommodation in Sarajevo was completely arranged - we just had to get off the train and Miran's friend would be there. 2 days later, we did...and he was!

It wasn't just Miran who was exceptionally welcoming and friendly, the whole family was. Although the older generations spoke no English (and we spoke no Bosnian), they always smiled at us and attempted to engage in conversation.

No breakfast is served at the house, but we were invited to join the family for a morning coffee.

I very highly recommend this accommodation for your stay in Mostar. It isn't luxurious, but it is centrally located, offers clean, comfortable rooms and is run by the friendliest family you could ever wish to meet. I loved this place!

Hostel Miran May 02, 2014
In September 2008 we stayed two nights in the Hostel Miran which we had booked in advance by e-mail.

Hostel Miran is actually situated in two locations in Mostar, but the main place seems to be at Lazetica 13, which is where also the owner Miran and his wife live.

This building has a lovely inner courtyard with a table, where we had our own breakfast.

Our private large double room with shared bathroom and kitchen was huge and very clean. At 10 Euro per person per night it was quite cheap.

Miran is a very friendly, talkative and helpful person. He picked us up at the train station, even though I told him that this wasn't really necessary. On arrival he offered us tea as well as free maps and brochures about Mostar.

The hostel and especially the inner courtyard is a good place to get in contact with other travellers. Free internet access is provided as well.

Hostel Miran can be found at Lazetica 13, from where it is about 10 minutes to the train and bus stations and about 15 minutes to the Old Bridge.

Meet Miran Jun 08, 2012
cant say enough about this place, the guy in Sarajevo booked us a room here for our night in Mostar. Once we arrived at the bus station we were greeted by Miram, the owner Mirans younger brother. It was only a five minute walk to the hostel but he was very apologetic about not having a car to pick us up in, Miran was using it on a tour. Once we reached the location he showed us some tour info then introduced us to his sister in law, who took care of getting us situated. It seemed as though there were two locations- one a dorm area and another with private rooms. We stayed in a private with 3 beds and a shared bathroom. The room and bathroom were both very clean. Mirans wife then gave us a map and pointed out all that we needed to see in town and some nightlife suggestions. They also had free wifi that worked in our room so that was good. The location to old town was about a ten minute walk through what I would call  new town. Mostar isn't very large so when walking through town we ran into Miran and his friends eating out and he made a point to introduce himself too me and hang out for a minute. Always a nice touch from the owner of anything. The rate was very cheap and the hospitality was all good- so check Miran and his family out when you're in Mostar.

Hostel with amazing owners! May 24, 2008
When we arrived in Mostar,we were met by the usual groups of anoying old women at the bus station.So we did our usual and ignored them all.Then a young man came up to me in a spar uniform(which i found rather amusing)and he asked me if i was James Mooney.Which i obviously said yes too.Then his girlfriend walked us to the hostel which his mother lived in.

We were shown to our double room.Which actually had 5 beds!!!Then we were given cake and offered coffee.Then Miran(the young man) turned up and started telling us he was going to take us all to a waterfall nearby for the day and we could go swimming there etc.Unfortunately we only had one full day in Mostar so we wanted to stay in Mostar.On reflection we should of gone with him because it would of been great.

The whole time we were there he was trying his best to help us out.If you had a question he would find out the answer,straight away.He literally couldnt of done anything more to help us out.he started giving me official postcards of bosnia that his girlfriend was in and asking us if we wanted a traditional bosnian lunch.His mother who was there the whole time,was brilliant.She didnt speak a word of english but she was constantly offering us coffer and let us watch the eurovision with her.

A fantastic place to stay with great owners who strive to make your time there brilliant
