Absolute awesome place to stay for anyone looking for a good mix of fun and culture. All main sites are within a stones throw away and the rooftop bar was great for chilling out with good food and amazing views over the city. Facilities were amazing and all the staff were fantastic, informative and very accomodating. Big shout out to Dusty, Kiwi, Laura, Emre and the other 2guys (i forgot your names sorry) who made my stay there a very enjoyable experience. Definitely recommend it

Great location for sight seeing in the old city, a quick tram away from the nightlife of Taksim. The rooftop terrace & bar really set this hostel apart and the great staff will make you feel welcome. "Family Dinner" nights are a great way to meet others as well and the food is plentiful and tasty. Thanks to all the staff especially Seko, Laura, Dusty and Kiwi.

Location was perfect, only 5 minutes to the sites you came to see in Istanbul. Upstairs bar was great for meeting people. They also hold daily activities for those who are interested. Rooms could have been a bit cleaner, but otherwise a really great stay!

Awesome staff with great recommendations, tours and family dinners. Really fun rooftop with free hookah and a bar. Beds with privacy curtains are a really nice touch as well.

Great vibes in the rooftop bar, super easy to meet people. The location is excellent for visiting all the sights in Old Town. Staff were accomodating and friendly and the rooms were spacious

great location, right by the blue mosque. awesome rooftop bar with a great atmosphere and free shisha and a welcome shot! Bar crawls on Saturdays and although Taksim Square (heart of the city's nightlife) is far, cabs are really cheap! decorations in the room were cool, semi private curtains and lockers available. En suite bathroom was great too with extra ones in the hallways. Loads of solo travellers here! Never felt unsafe as a solo female traveller. Highly recommend.

Had 24 hour check in so security was good and also helped for late flight, free breakfast included, the staff were friendly and helpful. Great place for meeting other travellers with the roof top bar and good location close to blue mosque and transport into Taksim Square, and also plenty of nearby restaurants. The bathrooms were slightly run down was the only minor fault

Awesome place, loved the terrace on the roof! Awesome way to meet people. The curtains around the bunks was a pleasant surprise. Loved the privacy and helped with being able to sleep at your own pace.

Had a great time with you guys, all the staff and the fun times upstairs were great a big thank you in particular to Laura, Kiwi and Alib for facilitating not only the pub crawl on my last night but for much of the fun that was had during my time there. Facilities were more than what I expected for the price and a great location too. Am recommending you guys to all future travellers to Istanbul. Thanks again, Mick (Aussie bloke with a beard)

Great stay. Would be good if there were proper blinds on the windows so the light didn't come in in the morning.

Had a great time here my first night in Istanbul. It's located in close proximity to some of the key attractions in Sultanahmet and has a fantastic staff. The views from the rooftop bar are gorgeous, plus having some drinks with your fellow travelers is always fun too.

I loved the rooftop terrace at this hostel, there was a friendly atmosphere up there and it was really easy to meet other travellers which is always a huge plus for solo travellers! The location's amazing (although the terrace has views of the sea not the mosques), the staff are helpful and the breakfast is pretty good despite the lack of fruit. The only real downside for me was that there's no kitchen and the hostel doesn't do laundry. Overall it's a nice hostel, I'd stay here again.

Very nice and helpful staff. I got a free welcome shot on entry, there is also free shisha to share with other travellers on the rooftop deck which overlooks the Bosphorous. Centrally located and has a good atmosphere. I only stayed one night- was in transit leaving the country, but I would definitely come back to this hostel next time I am in Istanbul.

Fantastic hostel. One of the best. The only downside is it's a bit pricey, but worth every penny.
