Tony is a great tour guide! The hostel is in the perfect location for doing city tours during the day and bar-hopping at night. Definitely would recommend.

Cheers Lighthouse is in the perfect location - lots of attractions and restaurants close-by! I felt very safe and welcomed. The hostel itself was very clean and had a great atmosphere, it was charming and comfortable in my room. The manager Tony was so friendly and helpful, I recommend the walking tours and pub crawls with him! Super cool and a lot of fun!! The breakfast was delicious and I loved the view of the Sea of Marmara. I would definitely stay here again.

Cheers Lighthouse is a gem of a place at Istanbul. Its a cosy place, not too crowded or cacaphonous the way hostels usually are. Well appointed- comfy bed, good showers nice turkish lighting. Special thanks to Tony and Murat who went out of their way to make us feel at home. We got cheated by a taxi driver at Istanbul and Tony was really sweet and made sure to cheer us up with his wonderful tips about Istanbul and he made great company as well. Will always return here if we happen to visit again

Cheers Lighthouse Hostel was an excellent choice to stay in Istanbul. We stayed in a private room which was very spacious and had air conditioning. Breakfast was simple, and good. Ate lunch at the restaurant which prices were reasonable and food was tasty. All staff were very nice. The hostel connects with their sister hostel to do activities together such as free walking tours and dinners to meet other travellers. Good location to all tourist sites. Would stay again.

Best stay in Europe! Amazing hostel, friendliest staff (who you will become great friends with) and incredible food (the restaurant food was the best we had while in Istanbul). Plus not to mention easily the best free walking tour in the world by Tony, he will show you parts of Istanbul and views that you will never see with anyone else. You cannot go wrong!

The hostel was pretty quiet so it wasn't that great of a communal environment. Lucky I was off exploring all day! The hostel didn't accept credit card. I wish I knew this before I booked. I probably would have booked elsewhere.

Top notch room and bedding. I spent just a night here so frankly I don't expect to have much to say. But then they allowed me to take a shower in the evening after I checked out... Without charge and even provided me a fresh towel. Now this is true hospitality. Kudos to Murat.
