Value for money hostel in good location near Galata tower. I liked the free breakfast of salads, bread and Tea/coffee. The rooftop terrace was a cool place to hangout and enjoy the views over Istanbul. The building is narrow and hence requires walking up and down a lot of stairs but it was not a problem for me. Tea/coffee available all day and shisha, PS3, aircon, luggage storage, free map and info. 10 euro for 6 bed dorm with breakfast included is a good deal. All in all a very enjoyable stay


Very nice hostel with a beautiful view from the rooftop. It is not far from the main touristy spots so you can get everywhere by foot. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Everything is clean, even the toilets and showers. Nothing to complain here and for this cheap price the service and facilities unbeatable

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.
