Location is nice just beside of hagia sofia and the hostel is okay but staffs wasn't so good. I think most of people who are working in hostel or restaurant in Sultan ahmet are not good. They only care about their money.


Great location! A little hard to find ( if you don't print out the directions). Alex at the front desk seemed to never slleep. I liked the included Turkish breakfast. A good budget option for Istanbul right in the middle of the main sites.


Thank you for not reminding us, that we get our key-deposit back at checkout... :-/

The private rooms and the breakfast are lovely. The hostel altogether is clean and staff is very nice. I cannot recommend the 16-bed-dorm, as it is an unclosable room under the roof with no aircondition and no space for luggage. And something should be done about the toilet up there, the door is not closing and also everyone can look inside.


The location of the hostel is very good! The breakfast its good and is included, only the bad thing if you choice the 12 bed shared that no space, the bed it confortable, by no space!


This hostel is perfect for visits, everything is near : Aya Sofia, citern basilic, blue mosquee, Topkapi, Grand Bazar, the old port, etc. Everything can be done by walking. The price is very cheap! If you're looking for a place to sleep that's great.
