Stayed in a private so can't comment on dorms.. No air con, no fan, broken curtain. 'Ensuite' is a foul smelling bathroom with shower over toilet (although great shower pressure and hot water). Bed is comfortable though. Hostel staff are Turkish men who appear to rather be doing other things. Poor quality of service. In a great location in Beyoglu however be prepared for noisy nights as is close to the streets. Would not stay again.


I loved this hostel. The staff and other guests were warm and welcoming, and the facilities more than acceptable. The location was fantastic of course. My only complaint was the fact that I did not have access to a locker because my room didn't have enough of them. But otherwise wonderful, a With wonderful people. Stay here!


Dirty, loud, smelly, and hot. I would not reccomend.


İ enjoyed very much, i feel so relaxed, thank you very much for all

This is a fun hostel with a great vibe and really relaxed yet helpful staff who make everybody feel comfortable. The location is a stone's throw from Taksim Square and it's really close to bustling shopping streets and side streets with awesome cheap food (check out the place a couple of hundred metres away with 1.50TKL kebabs)! The kitchen has everything you need and there's tea and coffee available all day which is a nice touch. It's a great value Istanbul option


This place is pretty average. The Wifi is horrible! You can only use a couple of phone apps. Not a very lively atmosphere. Great location though.


Good location. Friendly and helpful staff. Wifi. Would definitely recommend this hostel if you wanna stay in Istanbul.

Everyone was open and friendly, homely vibes all round!


Very nice place; great vibe. Good value for the money and excellent location—right near Taksim and Istaklal Ave. Staff were friendly and there was a great group of travelers there when I was. Would've stayed for longer if I could've. Definitely recommend it.

Wifi was pretty much non-existent. Not the cleanest place. Good location next to Taksim square.


Awesome place, super friendly hosts, awesome atmosphere in terms of place and people, in the heart of the city. We had great experience!


Thanks for a nice stay!!




This place literally is AMAZING! Perfect location very close from taksim square, airport suttle etc. but Moreover the staffs here are super friendly and helpful about everything. I had the most amazing days here that I couldn't leave!! I feel so blessed that I could meet all of those awesome people in cengo, I strongly recommend this hostel especially to backpackers. You can have wodnerful time here with loads of beautiful people. Thank you Cengo!!! I will miss all of you a lot x


Really a fantastic atmosphere, great location, great price, friendly and helpful staff, and really comfortable beds! Highly recommend.


I had a great time at this hostel. I actually love smaller accommodation because you always get the chance to mingle with other travellers. Honestly all the staff here were amazing. such a great vibe. one night a group of people got out the trumpet and guitar and had a jam session. great location, wifi very good. great showers. Kitchen was fine. i didn't want to leave .


What a special hostel! The staff are the best, so friendly and helpful, and it definitely feels like a home. There is lots to do, guitars, chalk, etc and the location is perfect, walking distance to the historical part, but still with a vibe right on the doorstep. Definitely one of the best hostels I have stayed in!


Party hostel, but not too loud. Location is handy, cheap food and interesting shops nearby. Wifi, lockers, kitchen, the works. Dormitory was comfortable and spacious. The staff went to great lengths to be helpful, thanks!


This was my second stay at Chillout Cengo. We staid with my girlfriend 5 days in a private double room. Breakfast, lunch or dinner with a bunch of peoples from all over the world! Chatting and laughing, for our trips, countries, hometowns, politics, food, drinks, movies, books, exchange "words" from our languages. Emre (Trabzon), Juan (Portugal), Shelby and Kevin (USA), Jared (Australia, Bastian and Julie (France), Barkin and his girlfriend (Istanbul), Alex (Ireland), Mustafa (Iraq). Great time


What you can expect: the friendliest and most accommodating staff, lots of couches and places to relax and chillout (hence the name), a great communal kitchen (when we stayed, all sorts of people were cooking for everyone - not just themselves - there's a huge atmosphere of sharing)... a common room with a small smoking balcony that turns into party central most nights where you can get to know people from all over the world. Special thanks to Emre for his friendship and awesomeness. Recommended
