cool funky hostel. staff were super friendly and helpful. one thing i really didn't like though was the lack of bathrooms. Three toilets and three showers for the hostel! also guys kept smoking in the bathrooms and hallways. But apart from that it was very cool and we enjoyed our time there.


Breakfast was amaaaaaaaaazing! Definitely get it!


Good atmosphere, great staff (very helpful too) and location.


The hostel is very well located, just some meters from Istiklal Caddesi, with a good staff and pure hostel atmosphere! The room was ok but it would be better with a net for mosquitoes on the windows!


Great atmosphere in the lounge and awesome breakfast 👌


Great location, really friendly staff. My only complain about the place is the noise. It's almost impossible to sleep while people screaming, partying etc all night long on the street.


Everything about this place was awesome but don't take the mosquito warnings lightly! My back is still itchy!


We were lucky enough to get the room on the 6th floor, with no door.. No air con... And only a spiral staircase. But I guess you get what you pay for, location was really good and the staff are also good, but being a non smoker, made my stay not the greatest, always smoke drifting in the common area, and there were ash trays in our room.


The hostel is located on a perfect spot for young people, right in the middle of the going out area and just next to the Istaklal. The staff is really friendly as well, and there's a nice atmosphere. A few things could be better: at night it's really hot, there's no fan or air-conditioning. During our stay there were a lot of mosquitoes would be nice if they place a something in the windows to stop them from coming in. Over all, it is a very nice place. Good value for money!

Really nice place, lives up to it's name. Staff were really friendly, helpful about places to try out in the area. The cafe is a cool place to hang out- good music, good food. Met some sound people from all over the world. Would definitely stay there again. One suggestion would be to take insect repellent! Mosquito's got into the room. Overall, really chilled.

Not what I was expecting based on reviews. Cool common area, but facilities in the dorm were sub par: few outlets, no wifi outside of lobby, only one light working, rickety bunk beds and jammed lockers. If you book the 6 dorm and are on the 6th floor be prepared to hike, which is fine, but be careful on the top set of stairs 2 people fell! Staff was friendly and nice, but mainly kept to themselves and atmosphere was quiet but it was a Tuesday. Great location but don't expect too much.


I liked the atmosphere on the main common area of the hostel. Staff were very helpful when we needed something.
