It was a small but very cozy hostel with nice people and incredible staff. Thanks to you Paco for this experience. The roof is very cool as there is a good view.

The stff was very helpful and friendly, and, of course, the location can't be beat.

Vvery well located. It has great staff but I do believe it lacks some security. They definitely need to install lockers because travelers now have laptops, ipad and it's not fun/safe having to carry them around out of fear of them being stolen. I am not saying that the hostel is not safe, but it will bring a good peace of mind. The staff are pretty knowledgeable of Istanbul, and suggests great plans. The view on the rooftop is fantastic. You need to be pushy in order to pay with a credit card

This hostel is close to the Sultanahmet station and Aya Sofia. Location is very good. Staff are very kind. Bed and room are very clean. We can use hot shower. Include breakfirst. Dmitry in underground is a little bit dark, but there is no problem.

very nice and conveniently located hostel near the major tourist attractions of Istanbul. the terrace has a better view than the four seasons hotel (which is next door and makes the hostel easy to find) . also very close to food and tourist amenities. the rooms are cleaned daily and the bathrooms/toilets are always kept clean by two dedicated cleaning staff. above all perhaps their strongest point I their friendly staff who are extremely helpful with anything you need , especially Paco! greatguy
