This place is super cool. The location couldn't be any better as it is close to the major attractions. The staff are always friendly and will help you with all your needs . Their breakfast is by far the best breakfast I've had out of all the hostels I've been to.


Great location, very nice dorm (the curtains around the bed change everything). Awesome pub crawl! Would definitely come back!!

Price was excellent, they clean the facility daily. Plenty of people and places to hangout. Complimentary breakfast was a pleasant surprise. This hostel made my stay in Istanbul a pleasure.

I have stayed more than 30 hostels in 10 countries and I can say that Big Apple is the best hostel i have ever stayed. The location is perfect (2mins to blue mosque and Hagia sophia and 5 mins to tram). The terrace is awesome(there is a nice view of bosphorus and the Princess Island. You can have tea, coffee or beer while watching the ships passing by the Bosphor.) The room, toilet, shower and sheet were clean. The staff was very kind, frankly and helpful. The pubcrawl was awesome.
