Perfect location for visiting all the main sites. Simple rooms, decent breakfast. Nothing to write home about.


Very cool restaurant at the last floor of building with nice view to Bosfor. There is a buffet breakfast taking place as well. In warmer months there is a place to sit at the top of building - I believe it is gonna be awesome spot for brunch or late dinner.


Dorm room was simple and in the basement. Showers and toilets where a little old. Location was great, just around the corner was the Blue Mosque and the Haga Sofia. The breakfast was great with many things, changing through the days!


it was great the staff was so helpful , food was good no issue exspect i should have booked the room the whole stay

I've been here in winter time but I can tell this place must be a perfect spot on spring or summer. The roof terrace it's calling for a wine, chill out, dinner/meeting. The common area it's really well set to make social interactions happen and the dorms are alright. Just one bad thing: No possibility of using the kitchen for the guest, wich would have made this place just perfect.

It was a pleasant stay. Everything was nice. The only thing was that a room was a bit small.


This is my second stay in the hostel. It was recently renovated and rooms are according to regular hotel room standards. The hostel is located in the heart of Sultan Ahmet, which makes it perfect for tourists wanting to see the historical Istanbul. Since the hostel prepares meals for guests, its kitchen is part of hostel's restaurant. The kitchen is not open to hostel's guests, so take this fact into consideration. If you used to self-cattering, then you should look somewhere else.


World wide well know touristic Istanbul aka city never sleep, all year around 24/7 there is always something to do :) antique hostel Was better then most well known hotels in Europe .. Heart of the Istanbul , safe as your home , helpful friendly stuff good breakfast and most important is perfect price for bargain hunters :)
