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.

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.
