No power plugs in the room but nice airconed room nice staff and good breakfast decent hostel all round


greathostel, loved it. private rooms could have been a bit bigger (an extra table/chair, a window) would have been handy and nice, but good valuefor the money! recommended.


Basic hostel...rooms small but clean.


It was right near the Galata Tower which was neat. It was in a bit of a rough area, had a rooftop terrace that was fun to hang out in with a open kitchen to use. Lockers were a little flimsy, I wore shoes in the shower they were dirty. Overall a good place to stay. If I go back I would stay in a different hostel.


This place was ok. It was nice to be in the Galata area but the streets outside the hostel were full of garbage and hard to navigate. The bathrooms were constantly occupied, with only one per floor there clearly weren't enough for all guests, and the floors would flood with water after people showered. You had to walk up and down the winding staircase, five floors, looking for a free bathroom. At one point, there was no running water at all, hot or cold!! Patio is nice though, free breakfast.


Simple but in a very good location. Good staff and good breakfast.


We had a really good time in this hostel. The staff was friendly, we felt like we were in family.

Hostel staff is really helpfull. The terass is nice with the view on the Galata Tower...


Everything is great, especially they have a very nice terrace place which you can enjoy your breakfast or simply just chill there. The staffs are friendly as well except sometimes they give some wrong information, which is not awesome.


Very friendly and helpful staff and in a great location, has great views!

Great view from the common room. Decent breakfast. Bit far from the main attractions but i recommend watching the sunset over the river with afish sandwich (5mins walkaway) My experience wasn't great though, the air-conditioning broke in our room, which they didn't fix. 6 people in asmall room 30c+ I thought I would be sick with heat exhaustion. Did not sleep.
