Greta place in a great location! The staff were very friendly and helpful. It is a small hostel, so limited people to meet, but a perfect place to stay in Istanbul!

Fantastic place to stay owned by three wonderful sisters. Perfect for solo travellers looking for a relaxed home in the middle of a wild and incredible city.

The three sisters and Adrian were amazing. It truly felt like they had taken us into their home and treated us as they would guests in their own house. The rooms, though small were spotlessly clean! Breakfast was great and felt like it was at the kitchen of a modern Turkish family's house. Having spent a week there I felt at home - I was taken care of, had a sense of belonging and was nurtured back to health with lots of great breakfast and hot cay (chai).

We had a really lovely stay at Jumba Hostel. The staff are so friendly, and made us feel very welcome, helping us with directions, restaurant recommendations etc. The atmosphere down in the communal area was relaxed and the whole place has a nice feel to it. The room was a little on the small side for two people (we had a private twin with bunk beds), but the beds were really comfy and there was a good shower, so can't complain really! All in all a great stay, and highly recommended.

Jumba is the antithesis of the giant backpacker factory hostels you get in most large cities. Small, chilled out with friendly staff - staying here is basically like renting an apartment with a bunch of random people. Oh, and the breakfast lives up to the hype.

This hostel was a home away from home. Nice and cosy with comfortable and clean facilities. The location is great - in an area with great bars, restaurants and cafes. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and the breakfast provided was a great way to start the day. My only suggestion would be to offer guests maps when they arrive with the location of the hostel marked out and suggest some must see and eating spots on it.

Great location for the new part of Istanbul for taksim square, restaurants, bars, shopping etc but about 20-30minutes away from the blue mosque/Hagia Sofia area.....staff were very friendly and helpful and the breakfast was simply excellent

Fantastic little place. We had a very good time staying in the stylish double room. It was cosy hanging out in the morning and evening in the kitchen/lounge with the owners and other guests. Love from Denmark, ps if you meet Pernille, friend of the hostel, say hello from Casper and Kristina

Best hostel experience anywhere in the world! The sisters are accommodating and great people. Even when our stay was over we decided to return for another three nights. Highly highly recommend!

Never in my life have I experienced such a loving and caring staff. They remember your name, make you breakfast every morning and take you out with their friends. I had the most amazing time at the hostel and the three sister really became friends. The hostel is located in a nice area about 5 minutes from a main shopping street in which the stores are open until 23 pm. It will take you about 15-20 minutes by public transport to get to the old city. I would recommend this hostel to everyone!

Jumba is a chic little hostel, well situated out of the touristy area, but just up the street from the main transit line. The hostel itself is cared for by three sisters, two of which i met, who are young, knowledgeable, and incredibly friendly. The neighbourhood is full of great little cafe's and delicious dinner spots, as well as unique shopping like antiques, old music, and art. The hostel operates like a b&b and was easily the favourite stay of my trip. Great breakfast as well!

We enjoyed our city trip to Istanbul and part of it was because of Jumba hostel!!! Istanbul is a great city to explore and so is Jumba! It is a nice little hostel run by three great sisters who made our stay just perfect! Great breakfast, great people and great atmosphere. Just the room (we had the dorm) was pretty small and rather loud due to traffic outside. But it was very clean and, yes, we definitely recommend it! Thanks, ladies, for a great time! Katharina, Kathrin, Kirsten & Christine
