Excellent hostel in the heart of the city center, 7 minutes on foot from the stop Sultanahmet. There is a terrace where you can have a good breakfast in the morning and enjoy the great views. Overall, the hostel is very welcoming atmosphere. Management is so friendly that when staying here you feel that you are visiting friends. I still have very fond memories of the living! Especially thanks for Mehmet - he is very kindly, regardful, companionable, he helped a lot for me =)

Good hostel smack bang in the middle of the tourist area. Whether or not the tourist area is a good thing is the real question. I would say no. Maybe stay in this end of town for one night and then get over to the Galata/Taksim area It would be good if the staff gave you some restaurant recommendations and information about the area.

Clean, great location. I was put in a 6 bed room with one other (quiet) traveller, so didn't meet anyone. The pub crawl was sub par, 19 guys and 2 girls including me! Despite this, the staff are very helpful and friendly. Good if you're already travelling with a group, not so great for meeting people.
