On arrival, the staff was not friendly, and we did not receive any information about the hostel or the neighborhood or city. Our room was given to us without comment - we were just told that we would get all the info and could pay tomorrow when the "reception guy" would be there. Also in the next 2 days the staff was unfriendly and not service-oriented. Then the owner of the hostel appeared. He was very nice, friendly and gave us planty of advice - as it should be.


great service and very clean place to stay


I have stayed here several times and always find a warm welcome from the staff. They are very willing to help with recommendations and advice. The place it clean and warm. It has the added benefit of an excellent restaurant!

What an amazing hostel! The staff were so friendly, seeing we were tired they let us check in the following morning. They provided maps and great information. Because the hostel was not very busy (February) they were kind enough to offer us the big top floor room with balcony & private sauna! The location is excellent, a 3 min walk from the blue mosque in the beautiful old town. Excellent breakfast, with free apple tea on demand. Would definitely recommend! Thanks for a great stay!


Wonderful place in a great city! The beds are absolutely comfortable and the ensuite bathrooms perfectly clean. While this hostel is a quite silent place (and so perfect to sleep) you can always rush to the partner hostel only a few minutes away to meet other travellers and hang out on the rooftop. I will definitely stay here again!


Its a small comfortable and probably the best hostel i stayed last couple of year .You feel welcomed and any information you need is available through talking with the staff who have excellent english. They will help you plan your days and explain the best things to see and do and how to do them . You can make your breakfast with the beatiful view of marmara sea .Definitely its the place if I visit istanbul again .thanks guys for everything.
