Unbeatable location!!! Two minutes walk from Haya Sophia and Blue Mosque and right in the middle of the Sultanahmet district were all the important sights are. The staff is super nice and helpful. Confy beds, enough wi-fi, and good sized lockers. The breakfast is quite basic but good and excelent turkish tea. Amazing rooftop terrace. Only downside, the bathrooms need to be cleaner and they must put a common room in the terrace, it is an amazing place but is completaly dead at night! LOVED IT!

A great location, only stayed 1 night here before heading down the coast, staff were helpful and rooms comfortable, unfortunately our bathroom was a little gross but that was due to the other guests sharing the dorm and not really the hotels fault. I would stay here again, very good value for money

Avrasya is less than 2 blocks from the 4 Seasons Hotel, for 1/20th the price, yet among the best in this traveler's experience across 3 countries. Walking distance to major historic sites and the mass transit system. Strong, consistent wifi, good food & good company. Virtually all guests were pleasant, some have become new friends.

Avrasya is the best hostel ever! Thank you, Tugay, for your hospitality and for teaching me so much about Turkish and Kurdish culture! Cody and I can't wait to stay at Avrasya again in November.

Great location in the heart of Sultanahmet. Staff friendly and helpful. No lock on ground floor dorm room door but it's right by reception which is 24 hours. Lockers also in room. Free turkish breakfast which was fine. Facilities weren't the cleanest but were adequate. The roof terrace is quite small with not much of a view but a comfortable place to sit. I would definitely recommend this place if you want peace and quiet but it's not the best hostel to meet other travellers.

The hostel is located near some of Istanbul's main sites, so it was easy to make our own walking tour around these places. The staff was really friendly and helpful (we had to check-in after the limit time and there was no problem with that). The breakfast was good but it could have more options. There are 3 toilets and 3 showers, thus there was no trouble even with 12 people sharing them. There were plugs throughout the room.

As a travel writer I stay in hostels all around the world. I have also stayed at Avrasya Hostel many times in the past but it is now under new ownership and I have found that the new owner has upgraded the facilities and continues to make the improvements which all travelers need and want in a quality hostel. The beds are comfortable, it is not noisy, the location could not be better and overall I was pleased to see the progress which has been made by the new owner and his staff. Stay here.

Great location! Right near all the important tourist attractions like the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sofia and Topkapi Palace. Wifi all over hostel and fast most of the time. Rooms are air-conditioned which is such a bonus in Istanbul this time of year! This is still a new hostel so staff are eager to please and are very friendly. Highly recommended!!

We stayed at the hostel for 5 nights. The hostel is located only a 2-minutes walk from the Blue Mosque, and was therefore a good starting point for our sightseeing in Istanbul. The breakfast was very good and we spend quite some time at the rooftop terrace. Nice beds and good airconditioning. Our bathroom had some maintenance problems - no toilet-seat and problems with both flushing and shower. It would have been nice with better cleaning in the room and bathroom during the stay.
