Location and price are the only good things about this hostel. But you get what you pay for. And at this hostel they make you pay extra for everything: lockers, computers, breakfast, ping pong, etc. There's only one key for each dorm so it's not secure at all. The common area is uncomfortable wooden benches, there's no atmosphere. No AC, or fans. The street outside is noisy. The bathroom light shuts off every 2 min.
The place seems safe, judging by the people that stay there, but the rooms lacked individual lockers, and you had to paid for using the lockers at the reception. Weird. Also, just one key for a room of 10 people that doesn't even know each other is also a fault. But in general, it was a very good value for money, as the place is awesomely located and it has good facilities, spatious rooms and lobby and a gigantic dining area. The staff could be more well trained and speak a better english.
The employees of the Cordial House Hotel,are very positieve to their guests! They are very nice and helpful,also in all my travel questions! The breakfast buffet was good,if you look at choice out there,you pay 10 TlRL The hotel is close to all the highlights of the city .At the Ataturk airport there are ATM. From theAtaturk Airport you can use the metro/tram to the tramstop .. Cemberlitas ony150m from the hotel. For metro,trarm,boot, you can buy the ...Istanbulkart..Easy and cheaper.

Staffs are super helpful and nice! They have a luggage storage room for checked out guests who still want to sightsee for the day. However, there is no individual lockers, only a open access room for all guests. But other than that, this hostel is a great pick! It's super close to Ayasofya, blue mosque and the grand bazaar. There is a metro station nearby on the way to Ayasofya, so it's easy to get around. Highly recommend this place for backpacker or just looking for a place to stay in Istanbu.

Some staff were totally inadequate. Almost inept. However there were 2 staff who almost made up for the others. Also, one key for the room is dreadful as I travel alone or with one other person and not with 10, so please get more keys! Location was great.
