We had a great time in the Chambers of the Boheme. The hostel keeper took great care of us, giving us good recommendations for food and leizure activities. The room was good. The hostel is located in a very lifely area, perfect for shopping, dining and clubbing. It takes 25 minutes to get to the old city by foot. The way there is nice, so we walked it all the time. We had a great time in Istanbul and our hostel was the best choice we could have made! Peter

Would definitely recommend this place. Had a nice stay with great hospitality and friendly and helpful people. The cafe next door has good and cheap breakfast. The area is great for going out and is also the pivot point for all public transport.

Just perfect, it was nice and friendly here. Staff was helpful, the atmosphere was great as it was close to the city center and everything was nearby. Common area was a bit small, but cozy and you still have a cute cafe literally in the same building. Safety and Cleanliness are also top notch, you get a personal locker and facilities are cleaned on a daily basis. Have been to much worse places in Istanbul before. Recommended!

Hostel in a perfect location, less than 5 minutes from Taksim, perfect spot for nightlife. A lot of restaurants, fast food, shops in proximity. Our room (4 bed dorm) could be a bit bigger and had no window. The owner was helpful. Overall we enjoyed the stay.

Chambers of Boheme is a great hostel! The hostel boss Ahmet is a friendly and interesting guy. He cooked very yummy soup and invited his guest to taste. It is the first time I visit Turkey and hostel staff provied lots of useful travel tips and guidance. Besides, the location is great - just a few step from the famous Taksim square. The airport shuttle bus stop at a street near Taksim square, so there is no need to take taxi, save taxi fee :)

Great location! The owner is extremely nice and welcoming. The place is a little small but I had no issues with it. Wifi doesn't work past the main floor! I'd stay here again when I come back to istanbul!

There was no wifi in the dorms up on the highest floor. The toilets were not the cleanest in the world and could have done with some hooks so you could hang your clothes/ towel without them falling off the little knobs on the wall. The bunks were also pretty wonky. Anytime anyone moves, the other feels it. Pillows were really, really nice on a positive note.

Great place to stay. Perfect location near Taksim and a main street, helpfull staff and excellent quality in regards the money you pay. It is a calm and chill hostel where, although you sleep with another 11 people, you can rest all night long,

What lovely place to stay... it was brilliant ... the facilities were well above standard . But it was the management and the staff that was amazing to me.... From guiding you for tourist spots . Helping you book stuff. to showing u great places to eat.. All great ... in fact i extended my stay there... just cos i was so comfortable. The atmosphere was social and the quality of travellers passing by was also exceptional. Some of them became froends for travels ahead.. that is exactly what u want
