Located right in the old city which means you are right by a lot of the main tourists spots like Hagia Sophia and Blue Mosque! Atmosphere was great. It was easy to meet people downstairs to adventure with in the kitchen and at the upstairs bar. There is an with an amazing view of Hagia Sophia right outside the bar window. Staff was great. You can book a bus shuttle at the front desk to take you to any of the airports.

After careful consideration of all the reviews of various hostel I found cheers and hoped that if out met up to half of what the reviews said then it would be a great choice -- well cheers surpassed even the amazing reviews. The view from the rooftop bar is phenomenal. The location is perfect for seeing all the key sights or easily jumping on public trans. The staff is the best part though - they are some of the friendliest and most helpful people I have ever interacted at with at a hostel!!

Been travelling around Europe for the past three months and this was my best experience in a hostel. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful with everything we asked - they went so far as to give us tips on how to not get ripped off by taxi drivers. The atmosphere was very much like a home and it was very refreshing to have that experience.

Great hostel. Amazing and really helpful staff ( Olga is the man ! Haha) with good recommandations. Nicely located in old Istanbul. Within walking distance of main attraction (aya sophia. Blue mosque. Topkapi palace. Grand bazar. Spice bazar). Start you day with a really good Turkish breakfeast at the hostel and go explore Istanbul. Come back late afternoon to the rooftop bar to chat with other fellow travellers over a few beer or turkish wine overlooking aya sophia.

The two rooms that we booked were exceptionally clean and the breakfast was equally good. This place has a very lively atmosphere and all thanks to the wonderful staff over here. We were given proper details to make the most of our 3 days stay. In the end, we just wished could stay a little bit longer here.

방 화장실 깨끗한건 물론이고 직원분들이 너무 친절해요~~ 간간히 만들어주시는 애플티도 짱 3박 머물렀는데 주변관광지(아야소피아 블루모스크 등)와도 너무가까운위치~~ 정말 좋았어요~

The location of the hostel is great because it is only a few minutes’ walk away from the Blue Mosque. The hostel itself is very clean and the bed that I had was probably one of the most comfortable beds that I have slept on in hostel. The breakfast served in the mornings was very good. The staff at the reception, Ahmet and Olga, were very nice and friendly and both provided good information on things to do and see in Istanbul. Cheers Hostel is a great place to stay in Istanbul.

Super great location for checking out the main sites (ie. 5 min walk to Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, Basilica Cistern). you can literally see the Hagia Sophia from the terrace bar. the terrace bar is a nice place to lounge, rest and/or socialize. the water for some reason wasn't working at when I checked out though. the breakfast was free but nothing special. tasty coffee though.

Saturday bbq was too expensive considering the average price range in other restaurants. Staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast was ok.
