We had an amazing time! The staff were super nice, we went on a really fun pub crawl, and we felt really safe and welcome the entire stay. The breakfast was unbelievable and the location was perfect - near the train and also major tourist attractions so it was easy to get around. We would definitely recommend it to anyone and everyone and would stay there again if we ever return to Istanbul :)

This hostel was incredible and the staff was so accommodating and friendly to ensure that my stay in Istanbul was enjoyable. The location is close to all the historical sites and the rooms are spacious and comfortable. The breakfast was great and Ahmet and Sinan at reception worked arduously to make sure that everything ran smoothly during our trip. I would zealously recommend this hostel to all my friends who visit Turkey.

This is one of the best hostels I have ever stayed in. The staff, the vibe...everything. From the minute I turned up to the end of my stay, the staff were always there to help, hang out, and give advice. Met some great people. Manages to be a social hostel without being an all out party hostel which is just perfect. I can't recommend this place enough. And the hostel dog is just AMAZING!

The breakfast was really good. I stay in Agora during my last trip and thought about staying in another spot and cheers was defnitly better with the great selections of breakfast. I also got a chance to meet other travelers who gave me great tips on the rest of the trip. The hostel is also located in the middle of sultament square.

Excellent location and staff! Walking distance to the most popular attractions and a terrific view of the Hagia Sophia from the top floor bar. The staff took a group of ~30 out Saturday night for a fun pub crawl. Ahmet was very helping checking us in and pointing out places on the map. Mustafa was a fun bartender and took the time to walk a mile to a hilltop cafe with a great view of Istanbul at night.

Cheers incredible! Awesome location, met lots of friends, and staff were all incredibly friendly and helpful. Amit helped me organize a trip to Ephesus/Pamukkale/Cappadocia which was incredible, Mustafa at the bar was so much fun and brought us out to see some local nightlife, and Olga recommended lots of great traditional places to visit. I will definitely be back again. Cheers cheers!

Cheers is one of the best hostels I've been to. Everyone makes an effort to learn your name and make you feel at home. The rooms and bathrooms are really clean. Breakfast is great with tons of fresh fruits and vegetables. The bar terrace has an amazing view. Plus, Zaman is the best hostel dog. Some of the best staff ever. Went on a pub crawl and other guests were causing problems. Mustafa and Ahmet handled it with class and respect. Top notch all around.

Very nice place to stay, espcially the bar with the great view and the very helpful staff! Even though we left the hostel to stay in an airbnb apartment, the staff still continued to help us out with very useful information about the nightlife and airport transportation

This was one of the best hostel experiences of my life. The staff were amazing. I have to especially thank Mustafa who made my stay amazing. He made me feel at home and I felt like I left Istanbul with a new friend. I also have to thank Ahmed and Olga who made great effort to make sure I was happy. Amazing staff and amazing hostel. Thank you.

Cheers was absolutely great. The facilities were clean and comfortable and the staff was friendly and helpful. And the location could not have been better. Literally less than 5 minutes walking to the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sofia, and Basilica Cistern, with another couple minutes to the Grand Bazaar. Easy access to the metro/tram to go all over the city and the rooftop bar was fun with an incredible view. Definitely one of the best hostels I've ever stayed in. Oh and the breakfast was incredible

I'm a firm believer that the hostel you stay in impacts your view of the city and the things you see and do. Cheers hostel staff are so incredibly friendly and helpful. They provide tips and recommendations on anything you want from where to eat the best Turkish delight and gözleme to what to see on the Asian side. Beautiful view from the rooftop bar and great atmosphere. Stay at Cheers!
