The hostel itself was great- location, value, cleanliness- especially the bathrooms! However, I was disappointed in the behavior of the guy at the front desk who is there during the day and not at night. I was in a group of 3- all of whom stayed 1 night in the hostel, and the 2nd night, only 1 of us stayed. He was very nasty when the other 2 came back to get the 1 who stayed, and wouldn't let her store her bag there for the day (when the guy at night said it was no problem to do so at all)

It was excellent and if we ever come back to Istanbul we will definitely go there again! The staff was amazing and they were always trying to help us with tips and recommendations. You have a nice and big room, big kitchen, free wifi and tea, nice tv area and breakfast in the morning. Besides, the neighbor is very safe and only a minutes away walking from the Galata Bridge and the old city. Galata is a nice area and the hostel is very cute. Everything perfect.

Very nice hostel located in the heart of Istanbul, very close to the hipster and artist area. Taksim Square is also right next to the hostel. When you've booked "deluxe", they'll serve the breakfast into your room! The only negative thing is that the staff sells beer to very very expensive prices!

Great place, Ali is very helpful and makes the trip really comfortable, was checking to go to cappadocia and he did all the permutations and combinations for the trip from Istanbul, including road and air and both road and air, did not end up going but really appreciate the effort. One thing is that the breakfast is not great which is cool in Istanbul since such a good place for food, definitely recommend this place

Would highly recommend this place to any backpacker. I stayed here about two weeks in total. The owner was not my personal favourite, but the main staff were very kind and quickly made the place feel like home. Can't say enough about them. Great facilities - kitchen for use, rooftop area, individual lockers big enough for your whole pack. It wasn't right in the tourist centre, but only a 20 min, beautiful walk to the main sites or right near the tram. Would go back any day.

That's one of the best hostel I visited in my travels. Volkan , Apo Ali and the others (sorry guys I don't remember all your names) take care of the place and their guests. Really a great staff. The hostel is cleaned and well maintained. Good position 15 min from sultanahmet and the old city, quite the same from Taksim square. A bit tricky to find the place because there are not signals on the main road neither the name of street because there are works in progress. Anyway highly suggested!!!

A few things could stand to be fixed in the hostel to make it a nicer experience for guests and are as follows: -Bathroom sink faucets are loose -Showerheads need a fixture to secure them against wall -Second floor hallway has loose bricks underneath the carpet

The staff is friendly and helpful, the twinbed room was clean and cozy. There were two showers and three toilets on the floor, at times some of them were broken but the staff took care of it quickly. They also clean the facilities every day. For breakfast there is cereals, tea and coffee which you can enjoy on the small rooftop terrace. We had a good stay, the area Tophane is calm, there are some nice cafés around. Old town, Taksim and Cihangir are in walking distance.
