Penoso servicio. Te hacen dormir en una terraza, sin previo aviso. Ya que en la reserva pone tienda de campaña y NO a la intemperie. Si llueve te meten dentro a cambio de unas 10 liras y entra el desayuno, aunque para el desayuno que dan más vale nada. El personal pesimo, estupidos y no ayudan en nada. Estuvimos por suerte más en la calle que en el hostal rse de mala muerte. No lo recomiendo para nada.

Auberge très proche du quartier touristique en journée, par contre le soir il faut prendre le tramway pour pouvoir aller au quartier touristique de nuit (bar...). Il n'y a pas de casier par contre l'hotel peut garder vos sacs, ce n'est pas de la tres grande sécurité mais nous n'avons pas eu de probleme. Il y a un déjeuner mais il n'est pas tres gros. Mais pour 5 euros la nuit on peux difficilement demander mieux. Tres bonne rencontre a l'hostel.

C'est la deuxième fois que je viens dans cette auberge et je la recommande une nouvelle fois. La première fois j'étais venue en hiver. Ce coup-ci, je viens en été. C'est vraiment magique de dormir sur la terrasse de l'auberge, assister au coucher du soleil sur les mosquées et écouter l'appel à la prière. C'est vraiment intense. Et le personnel de l'auberge est sympathique et serviable. Et je ne pense pas qu'on puisse trouver d'auberge de jeunesse à meilleur prix que celle-ci.

he location is excellent, a short walk from Sultanahmet tram station, right next to Topkapi Palace, the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sophia, the Basilica Cistern, and the Archaeological Museum. The view from the top floor is beautiful, sleeping on the roof is a great option; this hostel is fantastic value for money. The staff are very friendly and helpful, as is Arab, the hostel dog.

Excellent hostel, great location and there is even a rooftop bit you can sleep under the stars in. in the morning they make you a Turkish breakfast and give you Turkish tea. Salim was a great host, would recommend to everyone - and so cheap too! Will be coming back in the future definitely :)

Wouldn't recommend this hostel to anyone. Came in big group, we overbooked, Had to pay for extra beds for 3 nights contrary to their cancellation policy. Cameras in room, staff actually watched people in night time. No lockers. If sleeping in tent room - just mattresses on balcony. Location is good for tourist sights, but hard to get back to if going out at night. Staff gave mixed impression, seemed very hostile about money. Better places to stay in Istanbul for the same price.

the location of the hostel was fantastic! so close to the blue and red mosques and topkapi palace! The breakfast was small but turkish! The staff are very helpful and there is AC in the smaller dorms which is a must in the summer time as it gets crazy hot!

Really good location, walking distance from most of the attractions. However, my bunk bed did not have a ladder to get up the top bed, other than that, pretty comfortable beds.

The day time service was good, the staff were very helpful with directions etc. at the time. However, the information they gave me was incorrect and I had to rely on help from locals to get to where I needed to be. Also the washing machine was broken. In the evening, the pub crawl was fairly grim for a woman on her own. The manager was really drunk and tried to get me to help them get into a club (as the group consisted of a lot of his male friends) before giving me directions home. Charming!

It was a very nice time, we spent in the hostel. We slept on the terrace, with an amazing view of the Blue Mosque and Aya Sophia. The staff is nice and helpful, except a lady at the reception.

Accidentally booked a basement room without a window, they bumped us up to a room with a view of the hagia sophia for no extra cost! The room was small but clean and very comfortable with air conditioning. The staff were very friendly. Breakfast was great and the location is incredible!

Fantastic stay. Enjoyed sleeping under the stars on the balcony.

Great location, helpful staff and regularly cleaned facilities made this hostel a very good value. The only downsides I see is the lack of a common area (you can sit on the terrace though), the lack of kitchen and a very frugal breakfast ( basically 2 slices of tomato and one hard boiled egg...). Would recommend !
