I enjoyed staying in this hostel. It was near to everyhings ie Tram Station, 200 steps from blue mosque, ayasofia, cafeteria etc. Wi fi facilities was good. They provided me with good breakfast. However there was no microwave oven to speed up my cooking. Staf/ owner need to learn to be courties and not rude to clients. In conclusion, will stay here for next visit.


Not sure why this hostel is pretty highly rated, it is very AVERAGE. The bed in the dorm room was the hardest I've slept on in my whole trip. The door to the dorm room stays open most of the time giving you no security or quiet. The staff weren't particularly helpful, they didn't give us a map or any info about the area and the showers need to be fixed as they spray in every direction.


Great place to stay in the heart of Istanbul.

It was an excellent hostel and the staff took great care of us! It's just missing a common area to meet people and the bathrooms a bit small. But the location is perfect and the breakfast was good!!


Staff was very helpful, I'd like to thank them again. And, please, fix the showers, nobody needs those fountains.


AMAZING location less than a minutes walk to the Blue Mosque. Very cheap and staff were very helpful. Not a place to meet people.


The guy in the morning was not so helpful and have no idea about things to do Or to recomend us. Not a hostel to meet other travelers.


Great hostel for a great price! Doubt any hostel in Istanbul will beat it. Free lockers, great breakfast and kitchen use - all with a great terrace from which you can look down on the people not fortunate enough to be staying here! Look no further.


very close to the Mosque and other tourist attractions, lots of restaurants near by, breakfast was ok , nice staff, clean and tidy, have bottled cold water at the reception, nice atmosphere to meet other travelers, I recommend this hostel for sure.


Great location in Sultanahmet - just minutes away from the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia.


Great location minutes from the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia. Healthy/hearty breakfast on the rooftop terraces is a plus. Great friendly staff willing to help answer your question.


Had a pleasant stay here, although it was for one night. Surely will come again in the future.


Fantastic location within the historic district of Istanbul. Friendly staff that is willing to help answer questions. Decent breakfast provided.


This was an excellent value. A clean, comfortable room in a perfect location for a good price. What more could you ask for?

Owner is fantastic and went above and beyond to tell us about the city. At night, being on the second floor can be very noisy bc it's right above the lobby and sound carries easily. Location is perfect! And getting to and from the airport is clearly explained and can be executed easily. Terrace is a great hangout during the day or at night.


Great breakfast (served on the roof terrace) and a great location for visiting the sites of Old Town.


Great location for the Blue Mosque, Ayasofya, and Topkapi. The staff very nice but not that great for refering us to restaurants or bars. There was an ant problem the first night but the staff cleared it up right away when we pointed it out and it was fine after that. Good place if you're visiting Istanbul for a few days


Great location and helpful staff


Great - location, staff, breakfast, room. Already planedd another stay here !
