This was my second time at Cheers. I love this place! I'd rather not stay in Sultanahmet in general, but I'll make an exception for this place. It's small and homey, and always seems to be a great place to meet interesting people. The staff are helpful and friendly, and they keep the place quite clean. All in all a great place!

with the breakfast missed the fact that coffee wasn't real and the food not authentic Turkish.

The breakfast is amazing. They serve lots of fruits. Location couldn't be better. It is possible to visit the main attractions by foot.

I stayed at Cheers for 3 nights in an 8 dorm room and 1 night in a private room. Both rooms were perfectly confortable and clean. The only bad thing about the shared room was that we stayed at the third floor and there was just one bathroom for the whole floor and it was also the used by the people from the bar, so sometimes it got a bit dirty. The bar has a great atmosphere, the staff is so kind, so overall I really aprecciate my stay here.

It was strange that there was no keys to lock the door, and it was uncomfortable to think people could just bust in at any time. Each floor has 2 showers but only one toilet (for about 8 people or so). There should be one outlet per bed. Breakfast was very nice and location 3 minutes away from Sultanahmet.

The daily breakfast was great plus the staff were super helpful. Good place to stay if you are in Istanbul for a night or two.

The staff is awesome. They're super friendly and they really want you to have a good time. The rooms and facilities are nothing fancy, but clean and comfortable. The terrace bar on the top floor is a great place to hang and meet people and the view is breathtaking. We made some wonderful friends up there. Breakfast (included) is also really good. Again, nothing fancy, mostly raw fruits and veggies and some hard boiled eggs, but it's all fresh, and very tasty after a long night out.

Cheers Hostel is the best. Seriously. If you're young travelers looking to discover Istanbul, look no farther. Staff is amazing-open with recommendations and will go completely out of their way to help. Located in the heart of the old city, you can walk to all major sites. Their rooftop bar has amazing views of the Hagia Sofia, and is always filled with travelers from all over-an awesome way to connect. Whether traveling alone, as a couple or a group, Cheers is the place for you. Thanks Cheers!!

Awesome hostel ! All the staff is very cool and the location is perfect. One of the best (free) breakfast we have seen. The bar upstairs is very nice too, with a perfect view on Aya Sofia. Their dog, Zaman, is adorable. The only thing is that their Wi-Fi was not really good in our room. But other than that, perfect hostel ! Cheers from Montréal !

There are many hostels in the same area as Cheers. What makes it unique is the bar, the dog, and the breakfast. Even if you don't drink check out the bar on the 4th floor. There's a spectacular view of the Hagia Sofia. It's lit up at night and feels like you can reach out and touch it. The dog is a symbol of the atmosphere of the hostel. It's has a laid back, friendly vibe. I've never had a better breakfast at a hostel. The fruit they prepare is fresh and delicious!

We stayed in a beautiful and very clean room, located in a nice and central area. The staff showed us an example of Turkish hospitality and made us feel welcome right from the start. They also proved to be very reliable, as everything they organized for us (airport transportation etc) was extremely (and astonishingly) punctual.. I’d definitely recommend staying here. ..Oh, and breakfast was delicious.

Cheers Hostel is hands down one of the best hostels I have ever had the pleasure of staying at. The location is perfect. Haiga Sophia, Sultan Ahmet (Blue Mosque), Basilica Cistern, and a Metro Stop are all within a 5 minute walk from Cheers. The main hostel has a really fun and welcoming vibe. The top floor is a combination bar/hang out area, and the views from the top are pretty great. I like this hostel so much I'm going to leave a more detailed review on tripadvisor. I highly recommend!

Best hostel in Istanbul, everything was perfect, the staff make you feel like family, the location is unbeatable and the roof top bar has the best view in town. The little things make this place the best, proper pillows, good mattresses and everything is clean! Enjoy your stay and make sure to book in advance as it books out quick.

Great Location. easy to get around, friendly staff. The only bad thing is that the bar on the top floor plays music very loud until about 1am. Even with ear plugs it was really loud. Ask to stay on the bottom level if possible.
