A good stay. Good location within Taksim, just a few minutes' walk to the square. Only one key to my dorm room for all of the tenants, but sizable lockers. Common area was small, but got to meet some nice people there. Nice restroom/shower, good WiFi, comfortable beds.
Everything here is almost perfect. Location, cleanliness and staff are awesome. One of the staff Sezai is great he help me alot.
Eveything was fine, everyone was nice.. ... except that old guy cleaning the rooms, with no sense of privacy and respect, from the first day till the last he behaved very unpolitely to everyone. His job should be out of this place, please!
It was lil bit hard to find the hostel at the first place but it's worth the journey. Although it is quite far away from the few main attractions, you can still enjoy the city along the way. Overall this is the most ideal and perfect hostel to stay.

Great location, super helpful personel, very good facilities and free tea and coffee! Recommended 100%
The location was excellent but the staff left a bit to b e desired. One guy was excellent the other very offhand and one night I had difficulty even getting a cup of boiling water. When leaving with a heavy pack, it seemed they could not order a taxi for me as i only had about 4 or 5 blocks to go so I just walked. This one guy did not even get off his chair and open the door (a few steps away). I am nearer 80 than 70 and expect to have a door opened for me. The staff let down their hostel
Very clean new hostel. super friendly helpful staff. Great location
Good location to shopping and Taksim, not much atmosphere, common room was small off of kitchen on the bottom floor. Rooftop terrace was lovely. Breakfast was usual turkish, preprepared and felt bad for wasting the food on my plate I didn't want.
Taksim Lounge is always a safe bet when I come to Istanbul. Secure, clean and quiet, cool staff and owners. Great terrace on the roof. Close to Istiklal St. and Beyoglu district, yet 10-minutes away to the Bosphorus, going down through quiet streets and staircases. Been there many times. Love it.
Good hostel in a good area. 35 minute walk into the old town and 5 minutes away from cool bars and clubs. The staff were helpful and gave good recommendations for places to eat and trips to do. The roof top terrace and breakfast were really good. The 48 hour cancelation policy isn't good. When you run a hostel for budget travelers you should allow for flexibility. 24 hours is a reasonable cancelation period. Overall good hostel I would stay at again.
Air conditioner would have been nice during the hot weather. No screens or bars on our windows in our room was a bit unnerving when we left our room. The rooftop is great, the breakfast is good. The showers are cleaned everyday. The staff is present always and you can always make yourself tea or coffee. If I'm in the area, I'd stay again.
Staff was very friendly, they gave us a lot of good tips for going out and stuff, location is also really nice!
Great hostel with really helpful staff who will tell you exactly what to do while in Istanbul. The terrace was great for drinks & the free breakfast & kitchen made being a budget easy. Definitely recommend staying here! :)
I loved this hostel. Nothing bad to say about it. Clean, helpful staff (4 nice guys 24/7), rooms and bathrooms were big, the rooftop terrace is nice. Good location, near to Istiklal Caddesi but quiet.
Great location, supermarkets and lokantas, cafes etc very close. clean and comfy, the other guest were nice too. this is a very recommendable Backpacker's hostel
Great hostel at city center. Really friendly and helpful staff. Gran hostal bé de preu i al centre. Staff sempre ajudant i molt simpàtic. Tot molt net i una bona terrassa.
Good hostel in a vert central location. It might be a little difficult to find because it's "hidden" on a street. Good staff and breakfast. Great terrace.
Location is simply perfect, right in the most happening part of Istanbul and touristy attraction can be easily accessed walking (~30 min) or by tram/metro. Engin, the owner, will give you great tips for local cheap and delicious food, narguiles, good party spots and great local rooftop bars (where even a guy can enter solo), etc Good place to meet other travelers
Lovely staff, great atmosphere, very comfortable and clean, good location
