It was a good experience, the bus from Romania left me here at 5am check out wasn't until after 11.... They were awesome enough to give me a bed earlier then my check in time... Ihab Helped me set up my hot air balloon from Istanbul to Cappadocia. When I came back for a second time they didn't even worry about me checking in or paying... They looked at me said you look tired go pick out a bed...
One week in this hostel, the perfect place to stay in Istanbul. Centric ubication, nice staff and AMAZING breakfast. There is a terrasse on the top with a nice view of Bosforo, open space, a bubble in the city to relax and chill. The rooms have a lot of light and you can put all your things inside the beds to keep it safe. The building has just rebuilded from inside

I had a great stay in this hostel, meet really nice travellers and the staff is the best, friendly and super helpfull. The location is perfect, next to a tram station, banks, atm and near to all the touristic attractions of the old part of the city. The terrace and the view is awesome. Completely recommended.
The best of Harmony is the terrace, nice view, narguiles and the spanish staff of the terrace was very nice and helpful. Good for solo travelers. I was moved to a better room for free:) I recommend the female room which is in the 1st floor, better than the ones in the higher floors. Breakfast could be better but for the price -11€- it's acceptable
I think I'd give a higher rating but there was a lot of work going on in the hostel whilst I was there and to write fair review this possibly tarnished my experience a bit. Fairly unapologetic approach. Staff were friendly and helpful and personal enough to ask names and remember them. I liked this. Free breakfast- Fresh bread, cream cheese, dates, jam, tea/coffee and even sometimes egg. WiFi was mainly good. There was a lot of water leakage in ensuite shower/toilet rooms which needs looked at.
I had a great stay. Great location. Friendly staff. Good value.
The 16 bed room is a cold and dark basement. The beds there are terrible. No security at all, since we arrived once at 3am with all doors opened (as usual) and the only staff member was sleeping - he didn't wake up when we passed by him. The upper rooms are ok, but still lack of security.
The staff is really helpful and friendly, location couldn't be better!
odlična lokacija, zajtrk povprečen, se pa naješ, kuhar iz Sirije prijazen, tematski večeri na strehi, sobe s kopalnico in wc-jem čiste, terasa pa malo za pospravit (res še ni bila sezona

Harmony hostel is one of the best hostels I've stayed at. It's very basic in terms of facilities, but rooms were warm, breakfast was good and wifi worked in nearly all parts of the hostel. Beer and water are pretty cheap at the hostel as well. It's location is pretty sweet as well, close to all the major historical monuments. Staff is super friendly and always willing to go above and beyond with any question you may have.
Friendly and helpful staff, clean room, being near to Blue Mosque you should expect some traffic noise at night time. Enjoyed Chef's special omelette for breakfast.
One of the best locations in Istanbul and an outstanding staff.
If u dont need clean it is ok! But for me is to much unclean! everything!!!
If you want a cheap place to stay that is near the monuments, Harmony is a good choice! Also, nice views from the upper floor.
Amazing hostel, great location, great staff. Best hostel experience I've had!

Ideal place for visit of the Old Town and whole central Istanbul. Best ever beds I have met in any hostel. Nice breakfasts. And especially, the best ever atmosphere for meeting with other people from whole the world in the common room under the roof. Thanks Saad and Mia!!! Saad is very good cook. It was my third visit there and I will stay there definitly also next time.
This hostel is tucked away from busier parts of the city, but it is still centrally located. It has a cosy social area with a stunning view, and friendly staff who will take care of you with great food, music and recommendations of places to see and things to do. One issue was that there was no lock on the bedroom door and it looked like many of the lockable areas had been broken into previously (which is only really a problem if you have valuables). Otherwise comfortable, clean and recommended.
I had a great stay at the harmony hostel. The staff was very friendly and nice to hang around. The breakfast is included and the location is within walking distance to a lot of the sights in istanbul.
Everything was great! Thanks, Halyna and Mari

Very good experience in Istambul and perfect location. The guy from the hostel cooked for us in the terrasse at night delicious meals from Middle East countries, that was great.
