Loved the feel of this hostel. Great kitchen to cook in helpful staff very clean rooms. Good atmosphere to meet people Only real problem is late night music from the club next door on weekends and cheaper if booked online don't book in person. I would still stay here again its a very cozy hostel.

Only book one night since had to change my original plans but was really pleasantly surprised. Staff were very sweet and helpful. There is a full working kitchen so ideal if you are staying longer. Great wi-fi and even a pc available for use. Nice hostel for nice people. Not a party scene. If you looking for it, since entrace is a small green metal door, look out for KiKi which is next door or a flashing red 'E' sign if at night. Just across from some type of hospital i believe.

What a great place! Great location, awesome staff. The first night the hot shower wasn't working and after talking to the management it got fixed within hours. The location is in a typical old house but the inside is actually pretty modern. Make sure you pin the place on your map before getting there as they only have a tiny sticker on a door to signal the place. Free water and tea all day makes this place a steal! Keep it up!

To go to Taksim you don't have to go up hill from the hostel.

Its close to taksim square, so that good, but the staff is not really helpfull. They didnt speak much english, so they couldnt tell me where to buy bus tickets or where was the post office. The rooms are good, clean. I stayed at the girls room and there was a pub next to it, so it was really loud all night, didnt sleep well. They charge me for a map!

It was difficult to locate the hostel as there is no signage or landmarks. One of the receptionists barely speaks English. When we arrived, we were given clean sheets - but were asked to apply ourselves. On positive note, the room was clean, good wifi and location is strategic.

Everything was perfect. The location, the beds and the spacy room. It has a suprising character when you get inside from the door, it has a home-like feeling but you are in the center of everything. This place deserves a higher rating. Totally recommended.

The staff were busy playing with their computer, showing a lack of interest to their guests and therefore were not very helpful in advising local travels, activities, etc. Some of the late comers for the night did not even have bed sheets.

Cheap and well located. Some of the staff are very nice (especially the boys who will help you with anything). The girls during the day seem like they are doing you favours when you ask for an information or something. I booked a dorm, but since the hostel was full they put me in a private bedroom for the same price which was very nice. We had an unpleasant experience with noisy guests one night, but I believe it was just bad luck. Overall, good value for money.

I was really good time this hostel. very clean. good staff. a/c working very good. location is very close in taksim square.

very Good. and very cheap. but there are alot of stairs entrance so you have to bring some baggage to your room. that I think that's very good place and very good place to visit Taksim especially if you have to use shuttle bus to airport in front of Point hotel. that's very useful place.

The room and the bathroom was very clean. Beds were comfortable and the air conditioning was a very big plus. The neighbourhood is just few minutes to Taksim Square and its a very nice area. I recommend it!!
