Chillout is the best hostel that I've stayed at in Istanbul, due both to the laid back staff and the atmosphere of friendly conversation that pervades the common area. Too many hostels have swanky dorms or fancy kitchens but have a tense atmosphere where no one talks to each other. The location just north of Tunel is great, there's a small prep kitchen, the wifi works pretty good, they do laundry at any hour of the day, the bathrooms and rooms are always clean, and there's no curfew.


Perfect location, I recommend it for it. Easy to reach every places in Istanbul and public transports

When you're traveling you should understand it's not about staying in fancy places where you get a piece of chocolate on your pillow or new sleepers by your new bed. Traveling is about people and Chillout's team is definitely the best bunch. Always down for a chat or longer conversation, very helpful with directions or recommendations what to visit/where to eat. Super kind and friendly. And the location is in the very center. I basically walked everywhere but maybe I'm weird :)

Stayed there for 2nights and despite the location we didn't like it. The security is very very low as eryone can come in and they have no control on it. There is no kitchen where you can cook as they only have a tea facilities so prepare to always eat outside and spend money for that.Only few showers for the whole hostel.At night they play music till late so you might find it difficult to sleep.Laundry facilities are 15 Liras per wash incluse the drier. 6 bed dorm is lactually the place on the t
