It is near to Blue Mosque and Ayasofya, and you can find many restaurants around this area. BUT, there is no lockers in rooms, only safe boxes in reception for 2TL/day. WC rooms smell badly. I could find only one electric socket in a room which is for six people. WIFI only available in ground floor.

Good location in center of historic part of Istanbul offers 4 floors of very different number of people rooms. I stayed in the cheapest 10-dorm mixed room. There is only one electric power source in the room by the door. Bed linen was nice and clean. Lockers are big enough to put your laptop in but not more. Not very good security for bigger bags if you stay in common room. Next time I would definitely add some money for better comfort. Overall very good value for money.

Nice central location, easy to find and close to public transport. Most things are within easy walking distanse. Staff where friendly and helpful. Dorm rooms where okay, no personal lockers. Plenty of places nearby to eat out in.

Cheap hostel with a couple of flaws here and there, but what can you expect. The biggest plus is the location, which is within walking distance to the main attractions. It was a little dirty in the bathrooms, but nothing too bad. The kitchen is tiny, but at least there is a kitchen at all. The staff are lukewarm and the atmosphere is cold, but there is a bar in the common areas, which is a bonus. I can recommended this hostel for travellers on a very low budget.

Good location with average facilities. Staff weren't particularly helpful or friendly and the common room has no atmosphere. Not a great place to meet people but otherwise ok for the price.

In summer the shared rooms are hot. But it is a nice place and well located.

This is a great place to say if you enjoying wondering aimlessly around in Istanbul's summer heat trying to decipher the riddle they have posted for directions. Upon arriving you will (possibly) be greeted by the staff who will offer you the opportunity to wait 20 min before checking in to your room which will have neither a secure lock to the balcony or an outlet. Other than that I couldn't find many reasons to recommend this hostel to others.

Staff were most unhelpful when asking for information on anything. The dorm rooms each only had one key so they were left open all the time.

The hostel staff were lovely and when I stuffed up my booking they were very kind and accomodating. They did not give me a key to my room and the luggage storage room did not lock up. Showers were average. The hostel is close to Grand Bazaar and all the major tourist attractions. All in all I would say the hostel is good value for money.

The hostel is clean and tidy. It's comfortable. The only thing is the wifi access is only available at the ground floor. But it is nice as a whole.

I really think it was nice staying at Cordial. Nice with the large common area. I don't really have any particularly negatiive to say thinking about the price of a dorm room bed. With the price in mind I can only suggest this hostel. However you have to bear in mind that you're buying a palace bud a bed to sleep in. :-)
