I really enjoyed my stay here. I was a returning customer. The rooms were nice and small. I loved the roof top area and met lots of other travelers there. It has a great relaxing environment.

I've been to Istanbul many times before and stayed in several different hostels but will be staying at this one from now on (I'm actually back there again now). The staff at Harmony Hostel are amazing, very helpful and friendly. Well located, close to the Blue Mosque and Grand Bazaar and a minute walk to the tram stop and has a really nice chillout spot on the roof overlooking the city and the river.

The Hostel has good staff and a roof top chill out place. However, the basic thing I need in a hostel and I have been hostelling since 1991, so, I know a thing or two about hostels is a SAFE place to sleep and get a good shower. 6 people to 1 shower is a good ratio, however, the shower was clogged, within 1 minute the water on the floor is flooded. The room on 5th floor, 6 bed male dorm has no lock, yes, we got a key but the room was not locked. paid 45 lira for a bed. not worth it.

My father and I recently spent several nights at your hostel. At first, he was somewhat reluctant to stay at a hostel and not a hotel. I assured him its value based on its location alone. I'm so grateful we stayed here. The true value of this hostel was the staff. They seamlessly worked together to create an experience that's left both my father and myself inspired.for the next journey. I looked past the poor security because I trusted the staff. I will recommend this hostel to others.

Really enjoyed my stay here. This place had a amazing atmosphere and would recommend it to any traveler. The area is a bit expensive since it is right in the middel of a very touristy area but speaking to the people at the hostel they will point out where to get a really good cheap eat. The breakfast is not great but did the job of getting something in the belly before a day of exploring.

The hostel is centrally located in the old city, right near the the royal palace, Blue Mosque, gulhane park and 5 minutes from the Grand Bazaar. The hostel has a relaxed and friendly envıronment, the staff were helpful and the breakfast was great. Highly recommended

I had a fantastic 6 days stay at the Harmony Hostel. Very chilled and relaxed! The staff were great, helpful and very friendly! A cleaner came daily and kept the rooms/bathroom nice and clean and there is hot water for showers..yay! 2mins away from Gulhane tram stop, along the tram lines - you can't miss it! And a stone throw away from all the main historical attactions! Highly recommended - I would definitely stay here again if/when I visit Istanbul!

Had an excellent stay here! The staff is friendly and helpful, the rooms are clean and the baggage storage was really smart (in bed). The roof terrace is absolutely brilliant!!

The staff is really good, friendly and helpful. The room is big enough and everyone gets a single bed. There is A/C in the room but there is not wifi connection in the room, you have to go to the terrace which has a beautiful view of the bosphorus and lots of friendly people to meet. The only downside for me is the bathroom, which has no aeration at all and the shower was leaking. I did enjoy my stay in harmony hostel.

Nice place, I enjoyed my stay and would recommend it. The location is really good, the staff real friendly, and a beer on the roof terace is a great way to end your day. Flip-up beds are quite practical for putting your stuff away. The breakfast isn't very fancy but it's OK.

Great staff, great breakfast, great location. I will stay here again when I return to Istanbul. It is near the main attractions and has a tram within walking distance to get you to further things. The roof top is amazing.

I loved my stay at harmony Hostel. I was only supposed to be there for a few nights but ended up staying for 9 nights! The staff were so friendly and were always keen to help me, and even joined me on a few of my adventures around town. It was clean, and the terrace was a great place to hang out at any point of the day.

This hostel is in a great location to everything we wanted to see in Istanbul. The staff was cool and helped us with whatever we needed. Helped us book a Turkish bath and also set us up with a shuttle back to the airport.

Cool little hostel right in the restaurant/old quarter. Near to all the touristy sights and right on the tram line. Shower wasn't great but it made up for it with an amazing roof top bar overlooking all of the city. Great place to chill and the staff were friendly and up for a fun time.
