The location is perfect, but they have to improve the showers and try to put locker inside the rooms. Besides that, the hall is really nice, with some birds, a nice bar.

The location is very convenient. Worth every penny the guest pays

Generally good hostel. Walking distance from major Sultanhamet attractions. One problem was that I booked a room with a double bed for two people and was instead given a room with 3 single beds for the same price. Not sure whether that's a problem from Hostelworld or the hostel itself.

Cordial House is easy to find. Very close to Blue Mosque, Ayasofia, Topkapi, Grand Bazaar, and tram station Cemberitas. But no noise to disturb your sleep at night. The room is clean and warm. The staff is ok. The birds at the reception are cute :) Overall, we like everything there. But it would be nice if we could use wifi in the room, not only at the reception area.

Great hostel; staff is friendly; hostel is clean and has a great hangout area downstairs [only there the WLAN works! / birds and a parrot (sadly a too small cage) are entertaining the guests ;-)]; PERFECT location for first visit of Istanbul, minutes walk from major attractions; Kitchen could have been better; even at times of snow chaos at mid-february heating worked well and we had a lot of blankets (private room!)

In February it is cold in Instanbul. The heating is not so good and although it was at the maximum, you still feel cold inside. There was only one blanket available per person and although there was down fitted sheet, there was not flat sheet, so you cover yourself directly with the blanket. There should be a flat sheet. The facilities are clean but not so well renovated. There are not lockers in the room. However they offer to lock the important things at the reception.

Great hostel. Staff are generally friendly. The hostel is clean and has a great lobby/hangout area downstairs where you can meet a lot of people. Amazing location, minutes walk from major attractions in Istanbul.

Everything was fine, but it is unacceptable that there is a bird living in a small and sad cage in the common area. It shouldn't be living like that.

This hostel is very good for numerous reasons. Spacious common room, kitchen facilities, bar, option of booking private room for reasonable cost. The staff is friendly and helpful. This has become my go-to- hostel after 8 holidays in Istanbul. Perfect location too!

Location is very good, they dont have lockers for the luggage (I stayed in a 10 Bed dorm). Anonymous Atmosphere (hostel is very big) ... I prefer smallest hostels. A very good deal definetely for Istanbul.

Pros: The place is cheap. It is really clean. Cons: The internet is terrible and you cannot acces it from your rooms. There are no bag lockers unless you want to pay to have it locked up over night.
