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.

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!!

I loved this place, killer location, great staff & owners, very helpful, very clean. Coming back after a long day of sight seeing I felt like I was returning to a home/apartment and not a dreary hostel. Don't miss exploring the side streets that surround the location, great second hand stores, boutiques and tea shops, restaurants & bars giving it a more 'locals' vibe to the place then the main shopping venues. Over, highly recommend it, will stay there again on any return trips.

We had a great stay, everything was clean and the furniture seemed new. It was grat to have a bathroom in our room. Especially the rooftop was our highlight! Thank you.

They stuck us in the attic in a room with a ceiling so low that I couldn't stand up straight. It rained. The roof leaked. When I asked if anything could be done the receptionist responded that they "usually don't put people in that room." That made us feel SO MUCH better. Shower leaked water all over the bathroom floor. Just a terrible experience all around.

Very good location near to Taksim square and street with many bars and restaurants. Quiet and clean place. Friendly staff but difficulties with oral english (risk of confusion when asking for directions)
