I don't know where to start as this hostel has so many good things. We were 6 friends from the US, Canada and Mexico. We were looking for a place in Istanbul close to the main attractions and that was affordable. Cheers light house exceeded our expectations. Special mention to Emre who helped us from the beginning and who was always there to help us with all our needs. Everyone there is extremely helpful, I appreciate what you did for my friend who was sick.


Great place!


Great location, close to all the attraction.


Very nice location and friendly and helpful staff. We were in the 6-beds room with private bathroom, it was very clean and comfortable! Just a suggestion: add some shelves in the room and in the bathroom, it's hard to find a place where to put shampoo, phones, glasses, clothes. The lockers should be fixed too, but luckily we got the key of our room so no security issues. The restaurant service is not the cheapest but it's definitely worth the price, everything was delightful and well cooked.

I really recommend this place since we felt comfortable in very nice and cosy environment close to the main tourist places of interest.

Fantastic hostel in a cute corner of the historic district. The owners and staff were very nice, the breakfast was delicious (they serve you, no buffet), and the rooms were clean and comfortable. Stay here if you have a chance.


The shower facilities should get fixed, i.e. the fastening of the shower head and the water temperature stabilizer.


Great staffs and nice view terrance, but room is little bit sketchy and can not be considered as very clean. Overall, it's a nice hostel but you still can find a better one with the same price.
