Cons ; room is small / if you don't smoke it would be a torture to use kitchen (smoking is allowed in the kitchen but not in room) /////// Pros ; near to tram and mart (about 5~10 minutes by walk) / staffs are good at English and very willing to help / you can see a nice view at the kitchen(same as terrace) /


the staff is very friendly and helpful, they make sure all your questions and requested are well answered and taken care of, tnx November, and Lukas for everything and hope to see you soon again, the terrace have amazing view of Galata tower and the bridge, amazing breakfast in the morning, great beds and lockers in the dorm, and great clean bathrooms.

This hostel is really well located, the staff is super nice (specially fritz) and has good security! I recommend it to all of you! Plus it has an incredible view from the rooftop :)


Incredible hostel! Adorable staff, especially November and Fritz - they are amazing, remember your name instantly and are always keen to help with anything. Extremely helpful for getting around Istanbul, they know the city well. The hostel is clean and quiet with an awesome roof terrace and good facilities. I met great people here. Location is absolutely perfect, super central. They could do with lockers in the room but that's really the only thing. All in all highly recommended. Thanks Galata!
