One of the best hostels I've stayed at. Thanks to Olga, Tarik, Sinan, Ahmet and Nuri whose priceless advises made my experience in Istanbul one of my favorites ever. Clean hostel, friendly and helpful staff, very good breakfast and the rooftop bar with its amazing view is perfect for the ones that want to meet new people. And Ahmet's pub crawl is a must join.

Absolutely amazing hostel. Would recommend highly. Especially good for a solo traveler because the staff are so friendly and helpful. They give great advice about the city and help to introduce people to one another and make the hostel feel like a real family. So if you're not so good at meeting people the staff are amazing at assisting. Facilities are great and the bar up on the terrace has a great atmosphere and beautiful view of Aya Sofya.

Cheers Hostel is definitely the place to stay in Istanbul. It's super close to all the major attractions and walking distance to the new side across the bridge. Olga, Ahmet, Zaman, Tariq, Sinan, Salim, Nori and Onur are absolutely wonderful. They will greet you with big smiles, and make you feel welcome at every chance they get. The rooms are clean, the breakfast is delicious and the terrace bar is awesome ! I've made lifelong friends at Cheers and will stay there again when I return.

What an amazing hostel! Location is inconvenient, close to tourist attractions and only a couple of minutes' walk from Sultanahmet tram stop. The hostel was spotlessly clean. Breakfast was plentiful. But the most important of all was how friendly all the staff was. As soon as we checked in we were offered tea and all there is to know about Istanbul and Turkey. The bed was very comfy and the duvet was so soft. The resident dog was an added bonus. Thank you for making us feel so welcome! Yada

Genuine passion, a commodity most rare, cannot be faked. These young, talented staffers positively overflow with openness and a real sense of care, endowing their hostel with that sublime air of recuperative calm that gives even the most world-weary traveller the impression they're at home, with family. Phenomenal location. Views of the Hagia Sophia from our room. Very clean, delicious breakfast. Excellent service and upkeep.

The team at Cheers that we experienced (Ahmet, Sinan and Olga) were extremely helpfully and accommodating with advice on the local area. Highly recommend them, great atmosphere. Warren and June
