I was maybe the best hostel I ever stayed in! Perfect location (only 5 minutes away from Hagia Sophia). Nice and helpful staff, a good place to gather with people and a bar on the roof. Very good turkish breakfast as well.

This is the BEST hostel I have ever stayed at!! It is in the best location really close to the main sites and to the tram line. The rooms and bathroom are great and clean, free breakfast was perfect, good atmosphere, the rooftop bar has a stunning view to Hagia Sofia, everynight there was so much fun meeting people, I made a lot of good friends! I stayed for 7 nights and wish I could stay longer. Thank you so much to Olga, Ahmet, Tony and Nuri you are the best, friendly and helpuf staff!! CHEERS

The staff there are really the best. Everyone makes you feel at home and the breakfast is wonderful!! Olga has great suggestions and the places she recommended were some of the highlights of my trip there. Thanks again everyone!!! Bring doggie treats with you for Zamat and you will be a hero!!

I have only good things to say about Cheers. The location is fantastic, a short walk to the Grand Bazaar, Hagia Sophia and the Blue Mosque, as well as great places to eat. The atmosphere is fun and friendly, everyone that works there is super friendly and accommodating as well. We stayed in the private rooms, which were fantastic and newly renovated, very spacious. I would stay here again for sure if I ever revisit Istanbul.

Loved this spot! Great staff who were extremely helpful and friendly, they seemed genuinely happy to have you there. Free breakfast and an upstairs bar with an amazing view. They also had a water cooler so you could refill your water bottle which is definitely under appreciated.

My intention was to stay for two nights, I ended up staying almost a whole week! It's the kind of place that would make you love the city even if it wasn't as beautiful as it is. The staff is so much fun and helpful, I even got my damaged shirt sewed :) The breakfast is good, rooms and facilities are clean, the rooftop bar is fun and has the best view on Hagia Sofia, prices are reasonable... I could go on for hours, I truly love the place! Thanks so much Cheers and staff!

Great hostel in central location with an amazing atmosphere. Staff are super friendly and everyone is encouraged to socialise in the bar upstairs. Definitely worth checking out if you want great service, to meet new people and be near all the major old city attractions.

I booked this hostel for one night, and then had to go to Taxim area to meet friends for a few night. However, as soon as I could I returned to this hostel. The location is second to none, within view of the Hagia Sophia and central to everything. The staff were all superb in every way. Even when I arrived at 5:30am, they allowed me to sleep in the bar until the dorm bed was available.

Stayed here alone in August 2014 for 4 nights - excellent hostel! Great location, large rooms, comfy beds, buffet breakfast included. Not to mention the rooftop bar with incredible view. Felt very safe here. The best thing though was the atmosphere and the staff here!! Extremely friendly, kind, go out of their way to make sure you're having a good time and happy to give any tips. Thank you Cheers hostel!

Booked 2 nights and ended up staying 4 - it's an fantastic hostel with a great social atmosphere. The staff are incredibly helpful; they assist you plan your travels throughout Turkey and are always encouraging the guests to get to know each other. The rooftop bar is a lot of fun too. Will happily stay here again on our way out of Turkey.
