The female staff were fantastic and very helpful during my stay. Breakfast was standard Turkish fare and nice to have some protein. There isn't much of a common area so very difficult to meet people. Also, they REALLY REALLY need to put a sign up outside. It's not cool having to walk around a dark side-alley at night searching for this place. When i asked for help at a nearby cafe the response I got was, "Sure, I'll tell you where it is, but only if I can be your boyfriend while you stay there."

I've been there for couple days, we had a problem first day with the hot water, then they solved it. There's some noise problems at the weekend nights because of the other places around, it can be annoying. But I liked the place, cheap and nice.

Hardly any plugs in room, breakfast is ok could be better, this feels more like a cheap hotel than a hostel, the rooms are quite small, the location is very very close to istklal av which is great but in a scary alley.

The location is quite ideal, it's in the heart of Istanbul. However, it's not easy to find it at first as there's no sign on the building. Rooms were very clean and there're lockers big enough for each one so no worries about belongings. What I liked the most is the super breakfast, free coffee and tea all the time and friendly stuff to chat with.

Staid 5 days in East West and had a nice time there. The staff is helpful and friendly and will help you with any questions. Location is great in the middle of Galatasaray/Beyoglu, where the most clubs and pubs are located. Though, the atmosphere could be improved. There are only 2 rooms on each floor, so that u don't meet other people very often and the community room is rather small. The breakfast is not delicious but basic and worth the money. The rooms are quite small but ok.

Thank you for everything! It was all great. I will definitely stay at Eastwest if I come one more time to Istanbul. Hope to see you:)

En general es bueno, la ubicación es buena, pero esta ubicado en una calle bastante oscura y desolada. Las escaleras necesitan estar mas protegidas, hay huecos peligrosos y escaleras estrechas, hasta 5to piso. Desayuno es suficiente, simple en un lugar agradable, como limpieza y personal. La gente de recepción debería contar con mapas, y mas info. Pedí un traslado para una hora determinada y me aseguraron que estaba confirmado. No lo estaba y tuvieron que pedir un taxi urgente. MAL.

Staying at EastWest Hostel was a good choice. The breakfast, the 24/7 friendly and helpful staff, the clean sheets and blankets, the free wi-fi internet, the atmosphere, the good price, the international guests & the super central location... Everything was just perfect.

The shower didn't drain properly and every time it was used, our bathroom was like a swimming pool. I also think the shower never got cleaned - there was long black hair draping from the taps and everyone in our room had just arrived. The stairs are uber steep too. Some staff don't speak english well and overall aren't very warm. Location is great but the directions to get there are not clear at all. We spent 3 hours looking for it - turns out everyone had the same issue as us!

Propre avec un emplacement proche de la rue commerçante et animée. Notre chambre deux lits était très propre. Parfait rien à redire

De inicio no tenían un mapa de la ciudad, y no eran claros al momento de preguntar sobre alguna dirección o referencia para algunas compras. El hostel se encuentra detrás de una disco, asi que la primera noche es dificil ya que la musica es muy fuerte(4 am), el desayuno es bueno, los baños son limpios y tienen lo necesario, me dio la impresión que las sabanas y plumón no los cambian y eso no esta bien porque cada día hay gente nueva. Por el precio creo que esta bien.

Es un excelente lugar para visitar Turquia. Ubicado en el centro muy cerca de la zona de bares y a pesar de eso es un lugar donde puedes dormir sin ruido.

Good location. Cosy rooms. Friendly staff. Breakfast poor: just untoasted toasts and eggs. Our toilet had a lack and it was not possible to close the shower, so the floor was wet all over the bathroom. Still a recommendable friendly place. We would stay there again, if we came back to Istanbul.

The location is a little bit far away from the subway station, but it's not hard after your first visit. The staff is super passionate, always so helpful. What I like is the eco concept of this hostel, that everyone would leave something for the next guest in a big shelf.
