I had a great night in there. Harmony Hostel's location is great. Staff were very friendly. But I found that breakfast and shower was very poor compare to other hostels which I stayed in Turkey. And electricity was unstable, you can expect blackout, sometime.


Very good location, it has lockers available, breakfast oki (bread, tomato, cucumber , cheese, jelly, french toast). Internet only in the commune area and they are constantly smoking there. Even thought the make movie nights and were friendly.


spacious rooms with their own showers and toilets. Great lounge area on roof with view. You can't get wifi everywhere because the building is so large but it wasn't a big issue for me.


Great stay here, Ihab, Samer, Shaker are pretty helpful in everything. Atmosphere is great. Location is central. Mama helps clean the room very day. There is no stress to stay. You can just enjoy the time to chill in Istanbul.


Cheap, character filled rooms in the perfect location. Recommended! The young Syrian guys at the front desk were amazing. Very friendly and helpful! 'Volunteer' backpacker making the breakfast was unfriendly, late and hungover.


A great hostel in a great location - staff were very friendly and helpful. Very relaxed atmosphere and I would have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone.

very nice staff in a hostel that is well situated. There is a easygoing vibe here so ideal for guest getting to know a little about each other. Some guest even go out drinking in the evening together. Nice terrace and common area with a view. The most important for me is a good night sleep in a comfortable bed which was definitely the case. Definitely the place for the social crowd.. If you keep an open mind, i think you will very pleasantly surprise. Wifi only in common room.


I had the most amazing time at This hostel! The location is very good, very central and very easy to get there from the airport. Staff are very nice and there is a common area in the rooftop where everyone meets. Totally recommend it, made my stay in Istanbul even better :)


Great times myself and my mate had at harmony hostel. Excellent value for money and the staff were heaps nice. Shaqa, Ehab and Kim(great Aussie lass) were really helpful and great to hang out with. The best aspect of this place is deifnitley the people you meet and the family vibe it gives off. Every night everyone would climb to the top drink beer and battle in back gammon. Definitely recommend!

Great stay, so good I extended ! Thank you all, wonderful hostel!


I loved this hostel! Free breakfast was A+++ , staff were friendly and enjoyed hanging out with guests! the roof top made for a great social space and I always felt secure because of the pin pad locks on each room! ALSO the Murphy beds are such a GOOD idea!!! More hostels should use them! They save space by letting you put things under your bed and sleeping on your belongings gives great piece of mind ;) thank you harmony hostel for a great stay in istanbul! I'll be back for sure :)
