Well-located in Old Town and spacious rooms. However, cleanliness was an issue, with dusty rooms and musty sheets and a toilet that did not flush. Our lockers could not be locked. The staff were friendly and accommodating - one of the reception staff in particular went out of his way to help us with transportation.


good location. single beds in dorm rooms. I stayed here for 4 days.

Nice Hostel, awesome location, worth a stay


I stayed in 8 bed female dorm and the room was big, as well as the shower room. hair drier in the bathroom, water was hot. very nice view from the terrace was good, and reak fireplace at night for a drink. free breakfast even on the day we arrived ( at 7 am). The owner Ercan was very friendly and helpful.


All staffs here are so nice & speak English very well!! The room is clean & huge with locker. Bathroom & toilet is separated & very clean!! When i come back to Istanbul, definitely come back here again:))


Great hostel, central location with friendly staff always wiling to help. Dorm room comfortable and very clean.


Cheap, clean, close to Hagia Sophia. The staff member Shadi was especially helpful, and provided recommendations for cool places to go and how to get there. Also, there was breakfast, and lockers.


The staff went above and beyond to make the stay comfortable and enjoyable. Convenient location and the top floor / court yard was great.


The staff was frıendly and ı had a good tıme ın there thanks

Very helpful staff, would definitely stay here again. Location is awesome.


Overall, it was a okay hostel to stay in. Wouldn't not recommend it, but would not strongly recommend either. the staff there were pretty nice though.


I was very pleased with this hostel. The guys who run it really look after you. There are no bunk beds which is great, you get a locker, a towel and a lovely breakfast. The location is excellent and you can see the mayor landmarks from the nice terrace.

I had a great stay thank you!


Great hostel! Cozy beds. Loved it. :)


I didn't have a nice stay at Harmony Hostel. First I was on the 4th floor, with no Wifi access and no water coming from the shower as soon as someone was using it on the floors below... Then I complained and they put me on the 2nd floor, where Wifi worked and the shower also. Great. But still this place is not a cosy one, a lot of facilities are in a bad state, water leaks in the toilet, some windows are broken. Otherwise the staff is nice and tries its best...


Great hostel, very clean and comfortable. The staff was very friendly and helpful, and the location is perfect, right in the middle of everything. Would definitely recommend!


Everyone was super nice! Breakfast was great, the rooms are very big an the beds are cozy. Great price for the location.


when I was in the room some other people came in, they were not guests in the hostel but apparently the receptionist let them use the lockers in the dorm to storage their things (!!!!) in addition the receptionist had a very peculiar sense of humor: as there's empty beds in the dorm, he joked he might come to sleep tonight,or we should sleep together(!?) Not funny. one window was broken and could not be closed, receptionist said would take a look but never did. wish I had stayed somewhere else


Very nice at reception and great location. Bar service and atmosphere could be better but very clean and safe. Good recommendations for Turkish bath. :)


Just an overall great stay. No bunk beds is awesome, spacious dorms, and an awesome indoor/outdoor rooftop terrace. Fantastic breakfast cooked up by the temporary resident Canadian, and a fabulous atmosphere where you are encouraged to meet people. Right in the middle of it all making the massive metropolis of Istanbul seem like a simply navigated smaller city. Can't recommend enough. Watching fireworks from the roof for the turkish holiday on the 29th was unforgettable too. Amazing views.
