First, the location is really good. Delicious breakfast every side, but the food was the same. Point that the basement bathroom was a little uncomfortable, seems more likely to slide stairs. But the staff are very friendly and quiet atmosphere but also low-key atmosphere, come on I would like to give a high overall score.

非常专业的旅社,可能因为价位没有见到大部分背包客,倒是有很多来自日本韩国的俊男美女,我在这个hostel住了两晚,还不错,位置就在蓝色教堂附近,除了头一次找到酒店,我都是进蓝色教堂院子走左手边的小门出来,可以直接穿过商业街和马路走到大路上,顺着走到头再左转就能看到旅社的牌子. 他家房间宽敞床也舒服,洗手间和浴室都是独立的,使用时候很方便,最棒的还是顶楼的餐吧和露台,可以看到大海,早餐很丰富,一定不要错过,我都是很晚回来早上起的也晚,有时候会错过最好吃的水果,还有不要忘记他们check out 时间。

This is one of the best hostels I've stayed at throughout the world. I was unwell when I was there and the staff even came with me to hospital and brought me food in bed after I was discharged! The location was excellent, the rooms were spacious with great storage, the rooftop terrace was nice, and the included breakfast was good. Only thing that would've made it better would've been laundry facilities on site. Totally recommend this hostel

A nice hostel near the historical sites of Sultanahmet. The staff speak English, and are generally speaking very helpful. The dorm I stayed in was comfortable and cool, and the rooftop terrace and breakfast buffet are both great bonuses. The place seems to attract plenty of travelers from Korea and Japan, which can be either a good or a bad thing depending on your preferences. Apart from some issues with the toilets, nothing negative to say; would recommend!

清潔感のある洗面所、毎朝の食事、立地、全てが完璧でした。 このホステルは本当におすすめです。 日本人女性が滞在しており、日本語で書かれた周辺の地図を始め、サポートをしてくれます。

イスタンブールで3日お世話になりました。イスタンブールの目玉の観光スポットの目と鼻の先という立地、清潔な館内、解放的なテラスからの見晴らし、温かいスタッフの元で、快適に過ごさせて頂きました。日本人の旅行者も多く集まり退屈しないし、情報交換もできるので、一人旅の旅行者にも何かと便が良かったです。 特にスタッフの方には大変お世話になり、多少我が儘な注文をしてしまったかもしれませんが、非常に温かな対応をして頂き、このアゴラゲストハウスのホスピタリティの高さを感じました。 難を挙げるとすれば、宿代が高い(大都市なので仕方がないかもしれませんが…)、シャワールームが地下にあるので少しジメジメしていたところです。 ただ、十二分に滞在する価値のあるゲストハウスだと思います。またイスタンブールに行く際は、利用させて頂きたいです。

High valued hostel. Perfect breakfast, clean linen, and good location. Be informed that the cheapest dormitory is located in the basement. The shower is not so clean, but still okay.

Excellent hostel in Istambul. Bob from the staff is super friendly and helpful, he gave us many tips on what to do and where to go. You can bring inside your own drinks to a very cool terrace which is awesome! The facilities are very good and the hostel is super clean. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone traveling to Istambul.

Good breakfast, good wifi, great humour from Boss Steve, handy for everywhere. Lots of hotwater. Only minus - with all the Asians staying there - a sun shade is needed for the balcony eating areas as some mornings there was no room inside to eat until the crowd had thinned out.

Nice location, clean rooms (a bit hot since the air conditioning has broken), nice breakfast with homemade options, an excellent staff. I strongly recommend this place.

Great location, just a few steps away from the blue mosque... restaurants around the corner. Breakfast was very good too. Bed was comfortable in a 8 bed room. Lacks of a "hostel atmosphere" but you may meet some people in the terrase. Overall I would recomend it.

Estuve 3 días en el Agora Guesthouse y la pasé muy bien, es uno de los mejores hostales en los que he estado. Principalmente por su personal, pero sin olvidar la comodidad de las habitaciones y baños, la limpieza, el aire acondicionado, el desayuno. Además volví una semana después por Estambul y me permitieron dejar la valija en el hostel durante el día sin problemas. 100% recomendable!

We love this place. Stayed there on two occasions for three nights each time. Great location in Sultanhamet just minutes from Blue Mosque and Aya Sofia. The terrace has great views of the Bosphorus and Sea of Mamara. Agora has both private rooms and hostel dorm rooms. The private room we stayed in was generous in size, comfortable beds, good AC, and nice bathroom. Breakfast on the terrace was an excellent buffet. Good wifi. Bob and the rest of staff were friendly, funny and helpful. The place.
