Me and my friends have been here for 3 nights. It's centrally located and it has a good value for money. What I did like at all was the atmosphere. The hostel has a common room in the basement where people could meet for staying together, drinking or eating. But it is too small! Nothing a great place if you're looking for fun or meeting other interesting people! Little bit disappointed about the cleanliness. The wall behind my bed seemed a mosquito cemetery!
The only thing we found "bad" is that the toilet was always dirty and that there is no elevator and the stairs are stretch.

Friendly, helpful staff in a great location, however the floor drain on 3/F bathroom doesn't seem working so it is always wet. I had my coffee and cream powder on the rack inside my room however they were missing when I come back after a day trip. The staff said they might been taken by other guests in the room but I think it is unlikely.
Caupo was one of the nicer hostels we have ever stayed. We booked a private room and it had most all the amenities that a hotel has to offer, but at a much better rate. The staff works 24 hours a day, so they were always around to answer questions and be of service. We really appreciated the location. We were able to walk almost everywhere which saved us a lot of time on travel. The hostel was a little hard for us to find but once we got our bearings Istanbul is very easy to navigate.
The beds are comfy and there is air conditioning in the rooms. The location is great, however finding the place is exremely difficult. The hostel is located on what looks like a alley and they don't really have a sign, triple check your map before you go. The kitchen was great and always clean.
