Mostly a laid-back party-ish hostel, with a friendly vibe and great facilities. Tidy kitchen, large roof terrace and many rooms with balconies. They could do a bit to improve security - people were supposed to leave room keys at the desk but most often the rooms were unlocked and anyone could wander in and out. Not a huge deal because lockers were available in the halls. You can get better prices for this quality on the Asian side, but not somewhere this close to Taksim. Very convenient.

It was a great stay here. Engin was extremely helpful as he is a young local and was able to recommend many places to have fun. He even helped me book accommodations and travel to other parts of Turkey. They have a great rooftop terrace where you can have breakfast in the morning and beers at night!

The owners are the best! They help your with everything and they try to make everything possible. There is no better way to start the day in Istanbul than having breakfast on the rooftop terrace and no better way to end it than sitting all together in the evening and enjoy a cold beer 😊 I would absolutely recommend this hostel!

Staff is very helpfull and super nice. Location very close to Taksim square, close to restaurants and shops. Breakfast could be more variable. All over a very nice stay in the hostel!

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.

AMAZING PLACE and STAFF! Great Location and fresh brewed tea. I stayed here for 7 days and had great time. The staff was great with recommendations and the hostel is in the heart of Taksim. I would high recommend it! Only problem was that it was hard to find for me, but asked some locals and they pointed me in the right place.

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. :-(
