Pleasantly surprised by this place. Location is better than I thought, near the main drag but also close to some quieter cafes and places to eat. Staff were friendly and helpful. Shared bathrooms are nice, basically a classic bathroom with toilet, sink and shower, and cleaned well. Nice crowd in the hostel too.

Fantastic location just a few minutes from Taksim square and Istiklal street. Low key, pleasant atmosphere to check out the town. Rooftop patio is great for breakfast and on hot days, as there's a nice breeze up top. Wifi is good, as there's two routers. There's always Turkish tea available, and supermarkets are very close too. The staff is very helpful in whatever you need, directions, fastest way to get around. I lost my camera on a airport shuttle bus, and they helped get it back quickly.

The location was good but the room was tiny and the hostel in general needed a freshen up. The social area was nice but the showers were poor when we were there changing from very hot to very cold and at one moment with no water at all. We also thought the fact the duvet was without a cover was very unhygienic.

First of all I have to say all of the hostel staff are extremely acclmodating, they are happy to help with anything you nee to know. Great location a few minutes from Taksim square although it is a little tricky to find, it is the road after the 'City Centre Hotel' and has the hostel sign just above the door. Think I will stay again when I am in istanbul.

Nice, small and cheap hostel right next to the Taksim square and Istiklal street! Location could be confusing at first, but when you're used to it, it's completely fine. Air was too humid in our room, and also it gets cold in the night, so we requested a heater to be turned on. Staff always helped us when we requested, even told us about best clubs in Istanbul! Also they always have hot Turkish tea at the kitchen and simple free breakfast, which is super nice! Thank you very much!

The shower and the water pressure is really bad. When you are taking a shower and someone else is turning on the other shower on the same floor you will be without water until the other person turns it off. :-(

Great location, friendly staff, easily access to subway. Because of the winter season, the guest wasn't that many, though we did meet some great friends there, can't wait to visit here in SUMMER time!!

A cozy, very clean and budget hostel. Breakfast is simple and enough. The owner Sezai is very easy to hang out. I like the Pizza Vegas near hostel.
