We are an American couple who stayed at Cheers Hostel for three nights in January 2015. We read tons of positive reviews about Cheers, so we expected it to be nice--and was it ever! It boasts spotlessly clean facilities, affordable rates, and a management team that feels more like friends than staff members. The lobby has a congenial vibe and the upstairs bar is a great place to unwind after a long day of walking. Tarik, Olga, Ahmet, Nouri, and the entire Cheers family -- thank you! - Teke & Ann

I enjoyed my stay at Cheers Hostel. Olga was very hospitable and helped me with recommendations on where to visit in Istanbul. The social atmosphere was great! I met some interesting people at this hostel and would stay here again when in Istanbul! My only concern was the security since people were coming in and out of the hostel frequently and I am not sure they were actually guests.

I had a great time, and the staff had helpful suggestions and even a charger to borrow when I needed one. They also provide some group activities on weekend evenings, which is a nice option to have.

Fantastic Staff and amazing roof top bar!

What an excellent stay at Cheers Hostel in Istanbul. Right in the heart of the Sultanahmet, Cheers Hostel offers convenience to all the touristy hot spots including Blue Mosque and the Basillica Cistern. Our room was upgraded free of charge due to a leaky roof which showed how hospital the staff were when we told them about the problem. We were happy with a bucket but they insisted we take the upgrade. The staff were welcoming and extremely helpful. Would stay again! Cute dog also!

Great place, the staff was always very friendly and helpful. We actually got a better room than the one we had booked for the same price because we were in 3 people and, at the time, the hostel was not fully booked so they put us in a private room! It is really near the tram line and most touristic places. Would definitely stay there again. The breakfast was also very good.

Confortable hostel, very well located. The 2 guys who work there were very helpful. Could be more plugs on the room.

This hostel has the most accomodating and hospitable staff. We arrived early in the morning to a very cold istanbul, and as soon as we walked in the doors of cheers we were given tea, breakfast and advice about Istanbul. Olga patiently sat down with us and answered everything we wanted to know about town, and Huseyin (the hostels travel guy) organised our entire trip around turkey. We have just finished this, and it was perfect. Thankyou cheers for making our trip incredible!

Great location, excellent accommodating staff, free working wi-fi, world-class views from the convenient bar located at the top, fun place to be... I can see why this hostel gets so many great reviews, which is the reason why I chose to stay here to begin with.

The location was perfect for seeing old Istanbul but if you're looking for a more upbeat area look elsewhere. The staff were friendly mad remembered everyone's name. There's even a hostel dog!!

Location was fantastic! Hostel is conveniently located near the Hagia Sofia and Blue Mosque, only 5min away. I love spending time in the hostel, and having breakfast is definitely my favourite activity of the day. Cheers Hostel also has a rooftop bar that is just a superb place to hangout. Above all, all of the working staff at the hostel were awesome, funny and friendly. (: i felt very welcome and well received.
