    Bar was pretty loud until late but otherwise liked the hostel and great staff. They do not include towels or locks for the lockers, which always annoys me, but otherwise good value. The neighborhood doesn't have a lot of charm in it's own right--mostly all hotels--but it's just a few minutes from the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, etc., which is awesome. For better food (and better prices), head across the bridge to explore other neighborhoods.
