Stayed 3 nights, staff were helpful and pointed us in the right directions regarding what to see and what not to do. They all seem really happy. The bar was a good place to meet like minded travellers, with a nice view of the mosque. Breakfast was good, as was the coffee and the beer. Can't complain about the facilities. Most of the locals knew where the place was, so it was easy to find once we asked people, they are pretty eager to help.

First time in Europe and this hostel was simply amazing. Very friendly and helpful staff. Has a great rooftop bar and staff go out of their way to introduce you to other people. I am a solo traveler and left with a lot of new friends. Perfect start to my European adventure.

Couldn't have asked for a better hostel EVER! Friendliest staff, so so central location, always felt super safe and incredibly easy to mingle and make new friends to spend the days with (this is coming from a solo girl traveller too!) Easy to say I'd come back in a heart beat to stay at cheers again!! Thanks guys!

All the staff were very friendly! They did their best to help me deal with a lost luggage situation and when I missed a train leaving Istanbul they helped me find somewhere to crash for a night. They were really great. I want to stay in Istanbul just to hang out with them. Social vibes, good breakfast... Nice view of Aya Sofia from the top level bar. Good place to chill and meet people. Bathroom setup is not the best. The one on the third floor has both shower and toilet in the same room,/

한국말 할줄 아시는 터키분 너무 좋았어요. 도와주실려고 많이 노력도 하시고, 문제가 있다면 바로 그 자리에서 대화하는것을 추천해드려요.^^ 다음에 한번더 올게요 ㅎㅎ

Kindest hostel staff we have encountered, they will go of their way to help you. We especially loved Zamaan who is always ready to greet you with a slobbery kiss (the dog not the staff) !! Our private room was practically a hotel room! We have travelled to many countries in the world and stayed in many Hostels this ranks as one I the best for location, facililites and comfort and has by far the best staff. Thank you Tarik, Ahmed and the rest for making our stay in Istanbul awesome.

Cheers hostel is the best place to stay. Moment I walked in I was greeted by the friendliest reception staff who took my bags, gave me a drink, organised a tour for me & invited me on their weekly pub crawl for guest. Cheers hostel is set up in the best location, easy walk to everything. Rooftop bar is a great hangout, best wifi & air con, 24/7 staff assistants, rooms cleaned like everyday and good showers. Can't stay at cheers? go for a evening beer anyway. Cheers won't disappoint. Will be back

I have been at this hostel 5 years ago on my first trip to Istanbul and I liked it, so much so, that I came back. I could see improvements in the rooms (specially the air conditioner - quite a point in the summer heat !!!). Location is excellent, at the heart of Sultanhahmet), the price is quite attractive and, most important, the management people (the first I met was Olga) were kind and very helpful. Cheers Hostel is a great choice for a friendly accommodation in this wonderful city.

Extremely helpful staff, perfect location and great vibes all around. As a solo traveler, the common areas made it very easy to meet people (who were all awesome!). Wouldn't stay anywhere else.

Cheers is the best hostel you can stay in Istanbul! It has a perfect location, rooftop bar with an amazing view but mainly the best staff you can imagine. All the people working in Cheers are super helpful, friendly and very social. Also all the guests staying there are really nice.
