I have been to many hostels and Galata West definitely is in my top-10-list! I especially like to mention the socially active and helpful staff like the californian guy, or the turkish one (Alper) :) Everything (bathrooms included was clean and in good condition. The price was very good and the location very convenient. I will return :)


Great hostel, it lacks a bit of cleanliness but overall good stay.


The double private room we stayed in was really small but that would not be a problem if it was not for this suffocating feeling that the ceiling would come down on us. The window looking at a firewall (?) did not help the situation either. In general we felt kind of limited to almost all the areas of the hostel apart from the rooftop dining area. Smelly WC and shower (3rd floor). Problem with the shower: you would either scald yourself or freeze with the water, no in-the-between situation.
