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

Paco and his team made the initial few days in Istanbul very easy and comfortable! His local knowledge and eagerness to showcase his city is unbeatable. Comfy beds, substantial brekky and a kick ass roof terrace to suck down a few brews after a long days marching about fantastic Istanbul is precisely what the good hostelling experience is all about.

I really liked this hostel a lot. The breakfast is traditional Turkish, and you can get tea and coffee in the mornings. The beds are comfortable for hostel beds and have warm blankets. The airport shuttle is a lifesaver, and the manager is one of the kindest people. He really does care about his residents and will do anything he can to help - he even came downstairs to WAKE UP my friends at 2:45am so they wouldn't miss their shuttle, which they were already late for. That is pure kindness...
