Would definitely recommend this place.


The hostel bar was reaaally expensive for a hostel and they didn't allow us to bring in our own alcohol at all. Not that alcohol is the most important part of a hostel but this meant that people werent hanging around at the bar/common area much and the atmosphere suffered.


Location was good- 20 min walking to Sultanahemet, Taksim and 5 min walk for ferry to Asian side. We were disappointed by the facilities and the atmosphere. Hostel 'bar' charges 2x the price of beer and doesn't let you bring your own alcohol into the hostel. 10 bed dorm only had 3 outlets, so you couldn't charge your phone overnight most of the time. Club next door gets REALLY loud on Friday nights, so it's impossible to sleep until 2-3 am.

Thank you so much for your stay! Yes drinks are cheaper at the supermarket! I'm sure they also provide you with a social and laid back atmosphere, free wi-fi and a beautiful rooftop patio.
