Petit dej passable, personnel pas sympa Chambre avec très de peu places, pas de prises pour tout le monde. Douche mitoyen des toilettes: on mouille toute la pièce !!!! Pas de casiers pour y enfermer sa valise, et luggage room payante au-delà de 2h de garde... A part le prix, mauvaise expérience

Ein Gemeinschaftsraum, in dem man auch nachts bleiben kann, wäre wünschenswert. Und dass man nur über ein Zimmer auf die Dachterasse kann, ist schade. Ansonsten hatten wir einen wundervollen Aufenthalt!

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.

Ambiance squat dans le dortoir sur le toit, c'est très sympa et la vue est splendide. L'auberge est très bien située. Par contre, on doit crever de chaud l'Été !

Nice enough place, staff were fine, had no problems with them, breakfast was pretty terrible but free so as expected. Location is superb, would go back there just for that, the price was reasonable too. Don't be surprised if your bed feels a little bit damp at first. All in all, 6/10

This hostel was ok - but we were told we were in the 'good' rooms. The location is pretty good, & thats about it. The toilet had a gap of about 2 inches - so no privacy. 2 of the showers didnt lock - so no privacy. You also had to hold the shower head in 2 of the showers. And there was no bar. The breakfast room was in the basement, so no sea views, as stated. I definitely wouldnt recommend this hostel, unless you were super on a budget. but even then you should be able to find something better
