Great location! Really close to Hagia Sophia and Blue Mosque - so you can save money on public transportation. Staff is nice - they let us put our luggage even on our way back through Stambul, when we were not even staying there. If you need hostel in Istambul to explore old city - then this is perfect choice.

Nice terrace view, friendly staff. Very good location. There was no problem to the staff to arrange us bus to Goreme. The only down side was that the 4 bed room is extremely small

We had a great time at Istanbul Hostel! The location is perfect,very near to many of the touristic spots,easily reachable walking or by tram. The staff is very nice and friendly, always smiling, available and happy to help in any occasion. Breakfast is good,as well as the food they serve in the restaurant on the roof (great view,especially at night). We really enjoyed our stay there and all the people we met.We would definitely go back to this hostel and highly recommend it!

This is a fairly pleasant hostel, and I had a decent experience there. The location is magnificent in that it's basically next door to the Hagia Sophia and Blue Mosque, but that also means that all the restaurants and shops in the area are made-for-tourist rip-off joints, so you need to travel far to find anything of decent value. Breakfast is great value, hot water and WiFi works well, staff were funny and pleasant (and helped shoo away a stray cat at 2am).
