Really comfortable hostel about as central in the tourist area as you can get - in a cute little street right next to the Aya Sofya and Blue Mosque. Friendly atmosphere and a fantastic view from the super comfortable roof terrace. Good reliable internet, clean, reception open 24 hours and there is always someone happy to help you with whatever you need.


It was really good. When ı send an e-maıl , you respond quıckly. The only problem was a black out on 7/31.


Great hostel in a fantastic location! Terrific staff, breakfast spread is incredible, roof terrace has a gorgeous view of the Bosphorus, comfy bed, and the location can't be beat.

The staff were very nice and helpful, and the hostel is right next to the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia, easy 2-minute walking distance. You also get a great view of the ocean on the rooftop. The breakfast on the house was decent as well. The only thing I didn't like was the 4-bed dorm on the 2nd floor was way too small. There are barely any space for walking or for luggage when the room is full, and the bed sheets have many holes and seem very old.


I was in 6beds room. Smell's too suck coz it's in basement. If you stay in dormitory you can't see the sun all day.


This place is located in a nice area of the old city, lots of food an shops near by. My friend and I walked everywhere from here: hamami, grand bazaar, spice market, blue mosque (which is so so close), it's also less than 5 min from the tram stop. The rooms were nice enough, it's a bit weird not to have your own room key, and the bunks shake when the other person moves, but you have lots of space and a nice light and outlet. I wish there was a mirror in the room- bathrooms get back logged


receptionist's behaviors were disgusting
