Excellent breakfast! The light in the bathroom in my room wasn't working properly (flickering like a strobe light), but when I asked staff about it, I was told there was nothing to be done until the next day. It was very unpleasant and headache inducing.


Excellent location. Its about 3 mins walk to Sultanahmet square, which houses the most beautiful mosques/palaces in Istanbul. Its about 15 mins walk to the Grand Bazaar and about 20 to Galata. The 4 bed bunk room was a bit small but its airy enough and they kept it quite clean. The best part of the hostel is the breakfast/chill out area on the terrace which has great views of the Bosphorous. The breakfast is simple and traditionally Turkish. Hence, pretty good value for the money.


excellent location,huge breakfast spread with amazing view


We booked a four bed room for only one night, wanted to rest something after a very long trip. Fantastic welcoming and service, very clean room, reasonable price. All we needed. They arranged the taxi to the airport for us and gave us some books as present. What else could we ask for?


The hostel was nothing special. It's really just a place to sleep, the front desk staff are polite but don't go out of their way to give you extra information on things to do in town. The beds and clean, the lockers are big and the location is great.


good position, quite clean room and toilets. The big problem are the staff... don't comunicate and often really unpolite. The day we where arriving we give the phone to our taxi driver to call them; the receptionist was really unpolite and aggressive with our kind driver. expecially the evening receptionist is bad, unpolite, and can't help in anything. Position of this hostel is really really good but if you are a lonely backpacker here won't meet others like you. Good for couples n' groups


Antique hostel is so charming and cute. It's in a really cute part of the old city and easily accessible to major attractions. The breakfast had all the basics and was quite good. The view from the terrace is really relaxing and peaceful. Although not quite a party atmosphere when I was there, it was still really pleasant. The staff was very nice, specially the guy that works during the day (I forget his name :( sorry) I would definitely stay again!!!!
