This is by far the best hostel i have ever stayed so If you go to Istanbul you have to stay at this hostel,location is perfect(3 minutes walking distance from the blue mosque)the Hostel has a terrace that has a nice view of santa sofia and the manager Paco knows how to welcome a guest. Big hug Paco! William avila from Rio de janeiro,Brazil

Really loved it here. The people were amazing. Paco, who manages the place, is extremely friendly. He always gave us ideas for things to do and places to go in the day. Breakfast pretty basic, but good - a boiled egg, bread and spreads, cucumber, olives and tomatoes, and coffee. Beds and showers are decent and clean. No self service laundry or kitchen, but there is a restaurant upstairs and many restaurants all round. And laundry places nearby. Would def come back.

Staff was very friendly and helpful. There is a travel agency next to it where they can give information without pushing you to buy a package.

It was much better than the first hostel we had in Istanbul. Bathrooms were to be what's expected. The roof top terrace wasn't bad. Security I other than the lockbox was pretty lax. But good for the money and location.

This is a great hostel to visit Istanbul, the staff are very friendly and helpful. We stayed for 2 nights went to Cappadocia for three nights and they allowed us to leave our excess luggage in the storage. The breakfast include is simple but is traditional Turkish breakfast, the roof terrace is also a great location. I would stay here again.

Friendly and helpful staff, very clean and good atmosphere. It's location is excellent - 200m walk to Blue Mosque and Hagia Sofia. There's a travel agent connected to the hostel next door which organised a 6 day trip for us to Cappadocia, Pammalkale, Ephesus and Gallipoli. It was very well organised and affordable and all the connections ran very smoothly. I'd definitely stay here again.
