Great hostel in center of old Istanbul, the real draw is friendky, helpful staff, a location you can walk to any attraction from, and the great mix of guests to meet.

Cheers is the best hostel you can stay in Istanbul! It has a perfect location, rooftop bar with an amazing view but mainly the best staff you can imagine. All the people working in Cheers are super helpful, friendly and very social. Also all the guests staying there are really nice. If you wanna have a great time in Istanbul, definitely go to Cheers:)

nur Infos schlecht,es ging schief.man hatte uns dann gesagt Tickets habt ihr nicht gekauft.waren perplex obwohl wir es schon reserviert hatten mit shuttle Bus. dachte es War erledigt weil der Mann Feierabend hatte, aber dieser dachte der andere macht für uns. der War dazwischen weg und die Frau ahnungslos. Deswegen wurden wir nicht informiert. an der Pinnwand stand auch keinen genauen Hinweis Beispiel,wenn Sie zum Flughafen einen günstigen Bus brauchen,bucht sofort, kriegt tickets von hier

I don't usually leave a review, but I think I should say this is the best hostel I've ever stayed. Everything is perfect; breakfast, facilities, location, and super friendly, capable staffs. Whenever I made some mistakes during my stay, they always tried to help me even though it was not their responsibility. Thanks to them, I could be on time for my flight. I will definetely come back here if I come to Istanbul again!

Amazing hostel! As soon as I walked in the door the staff were so welcoming and friendly and invited me on a pub craw. It was great fun and I met people straight away at the bar :) the staff will organise all your tours, shuttle buses and are happy to give you as many recommendations as you need. The breakfast was great, bathrooms were fine, the wifi was bit slow at times but there are 2 free computers to use downstairs. Would highly recommend staying here for young travellers

One of our greatest memories in Istanbul was our stay in The cheers hostel. We met a lot of great people from all around the world thanks to the good vibes provided by the staff who is really helpful. Bed were confortable, never had to wait to take a shower or go to the bathroom as there are enough at each floor. Breakfast was cool and coffee really good. I definetly recommand as we are trying to spend one more night there to close our roadtrip before taking the plane

What more can one want from a hostel? Just a few steps away from one of the worlds most iconic sites - Aya Sophia Cheers has it all, Great staff - helpful informative relaxed and helping you to relax and enjoy. Nice vibe, clean value for money. I enjoyed my time at Cheers and Istanbul immensely. It is hard to fault Cheers except that the breakfast is better for vegetarians than meet lovers. Bonus for pet lovers the dog is just great - one of the coolest Golden Labradors ever. Thanks guys

The amazing staff of this ideally located hostel really distinguish it from other hostels around the world. They really make you feel at home and send you to all the best places in the city. On top of that the rooftop bar has a gorgeous view and good prices. You will not regret your stay here. We even prolonged our stay we were having so much fun. Just like Hotel California, you can never leave.

The hostel has a great atmasphere and the friendliest staff. The location is really excellent. The roof top terrace is a great place to meet people. The only negative I can say is we could hear the noise from the bar during the night. All in all a great place to stay and I would come here again.

We loved our stay so much that we will be returning after our tour of turkey!!! The cheers crew are simply amazing and will help you out in any way they can. So friendly. The atmosphere is perfect. It's easy to meet people and the whole vibe is very chilled out. It's walking distance to all the major tourist sites and good places to eat. Wouldn't stay anywhere else. Honestly can't recommend this place enough CHEERS!!!

I stayed by myself at Cheers for a week and it was fantastic! Olga, Ahmed and Sinan always gave me tips and recommendations for a great experience. Sinan even came with me after night shift to the Spice Market to help me get a better price on a gift. A really nice breaky is included (the apple tea is delicious!). Good sized rooms, clean with air con. Good location near the tram line. Highly recommend if travelling by yourself as they have a terrace bar so it's easy to meet others. A great stay!
