The staff boss is a great guy, he gives great advise on what to do in Turkey and who not to trust. He is trustworthy.

We stayed here for 4 nights, great location right close to Taksim square and plenty of food/shopping/nightlife. Only downside was no microwave, no kitchen, no fridge which all come in handy when trying to live cheaply off market/supermarket food. Closest supermarket is a couple streets down.

Location is perfect, just a few meters away from Taksim Square. I liked the rooms, they where comfortable, showers ok, just maybe would expect a little bit more cleaning in the bathrooms. I wish they had a kitchen but overall experience was very positive

This hostel was amazing! The location is incredible: just 5 minute walk from the place where the airport bus leaves you. The hostel is also a bar and restaurant. The room was clean and in a very good condition and it was also quite cheap. The guys at the hostel were always there helping us for anything we needed and fulfilling every request.

Awesome location, right next to İstiklal (mais street of whole Istanbul). Walking distance to Galata Tower, bars and clubs. More far away, but still walking distance you can get to Ayasofya, Blue Mosk and Topkapi Palace. Enjoy this place and tell Ahmed I said hi. Awesome staff.

Absolutely fantastic location right off istiklal. Ahmet was very helpful in planning our four day stay. We were also upgraded from the dorm to a private room for no charge! Unbeatable location and fantastic price.

Had a great experience at the Chambers of the Boheme. Prime location, just off the main street İstiklal, close to Taksim square, close to amazing restaurants, bars, and shops. Hostel staff were extremely friendly and helpful, ready to assist all of our needs, even if they lay outside their regular duties. Rooms were clean, lockers were very large for personal items, and the beds were comfortable. Strong Wifi available. Met some amazing people at this hostel. I would definitely recommend it!

The owner is awesome. I arrived very late at night and he was waiting up with a cup of tea for me. Facilities were very nice. each room had a personal bathroom. The floors were a little creeky, but the overall atmosphere was very laid back and friendly. I'd recommend it. The location is right off of Taksim Square

This is nice place to sleep quiet and safe. Good location indeed: a few steps from Istiklil and Taksim. Convenient connections to metro and buses on Taksim square. Wi-fi is available in the room and free. For a breakfast it is better to go to some nearest cafe.

The boss of Chambers of the Boheme is so nice. He help me and my friend with our trip a lot. Lending us his transportation, giving us useful information and treat us tea. We talked a lot and really enjoy the stay. The location is quite close to the main street and quite convenient. Bathrooms a little small, everything else is so good.

I have only great things to say about Ahmet and my stay at this hostel. Despite my plane landing late and not arriving to Taksim until 1:30 in the morning, Ahmet met my taxi at the corner and walked me to the hostel, then "upgraded" me to my own room so that I didn't have to try and unpack without disturbing the other women already asleep. The rooms are simple, but they have a/c and a fan and large lockers for each bed. The location is excellent and Ahmet was very helpful with recommendations.

Great hostel, staff was awesome! Ask about the local hammam, and the steps (for a view and a drink). I would go back when I return to Istanbul. Rooms were cute, well-aired, and cleaned regularly, although the bathrooms could have been cleaner.

The Hostel is in a very central area. There are a lot of restaurants to take a tea or to smoke sisha and they are very cheap than the restaurants near of the mosques. The service at the hostel is excellent, the people are very nice and the hostel manager treated us really well. I'm so glad to have booked this hostel. If I came back to Istanbul, it's for sure that I'd book this hostel again.
