Friendly staff. Met the owner and he was very insightful. Cute rooms. The place is a bit hard to find, even if it's close to Taksim Square and in an awkward slope, not very practical when traveling with suitcases or anything heavy.
Very nice place. Balcony on the fourth floor was a really great hang out spot - good mix of nationalities.

I really enjoyed staying at this hostel.b Once you get used to the hill to get to Taksim Square it's all good. The staff here was young and energetic and were more than willing to give suggestions if questions were asked. The rooms were perfect temperature, it was nice to walk into that after a long hot day of touring. Would recommend this place to friends.
The hostel is nice. I guess for the price, the dormitories worth it totally. However, a backpack bigger than 30cm doesn´t fit in lockers. The location is central and Turan street very active during the day but the surroundings were quite complicated at night. I wouldn´t recommend walking alone there except through Turan street. Other streets were not nice, dirty and dark and with many guys staring at you. Also, take into account that there is a mosque nearby and at 5am they pray really loud.

Security was good - and the personal lockers were nice. Location is alright, not great. Staff could have been more helpful with local information. The two that I talked to didn't seem to be local, so that's probably part of the issue. Clean and comfortable.
Great friendly and very helpful staff! Easy to get to anywhere! Defiantly recommend for young explorers!
Such a great hostel! Awesome chill atmosphere, and such friendly and helpful staff! I've been to plenty of hostels around the world - and this one is definitely one of the best. The owners know what travellers need so they try to accomodate people's needs. The only thing I had a problem with was the location at the bottom of a hill, and the dorm being on the fourth floor - but that's just me being lazy. They helped me take my bag up the dorm though!
Conveniently located near Taksim square, with 24h reception, nice rooms and a clean bathroom, BellaVista is an excellent choice for a stay in Istanbul. Just opposite the entrance there is a bakery with cheap chai and börek, also a pide place next doors. Beware that there is a mosque nearby and you can hear the singing/ prayers. (Which is kinda nice, but not at 5 AM)
Great place, good location, near a very busy square and main roads to the old town. Plenty of bars and night clubs around. Good toilets and showers, but there is no kitchen available to clients.
