Jumba Hostel is located perfectly! Only a few minutes away from the 'Istiklal Cadessi' where it is Always lively :) if you walk down the hill you can take the tram to the old part of Istanbul, Sultanahmet. Having a breakfast with fresh ingredients every morning is really helpful to start a new day in Istanbul full energy! The rooftop is nice to enjoy the sun during the day or have a drink in the evening. We enjoyed our time in Istanbul a lot.

Lahika, Alev and Eda were wonderful hosts and really made us feel at home. The hostel is small but is fitted out extremely well and the location is excellent, just a few minutes walk from excellent cafes, bars and shops. Would definitely recommend to friends and family :)

The hostel is located in a perfect area, it is so close to historical places, bars and restaurants. Owner's of the hostel are so kind and helpful. You can get a great sleep there as it is clean and quiet. There are many things to prefer Jumba Hostel :)

The bed and pillow were comfortable. The bathroom for the dorm room was small, and the shelf above the sink is placed inconveniently, but it's still manageable. The staff were very sweet and helpful, even waiting until 2am for my delayed flight to arrive. The place was very cute and clean, but with minimal common space.

Jumba is by far, the best hostel I've stayed anywhere in the world. Eda, Lahika and Alev are friendly hosts and I must thank Andreas for the excellent conversation alongside a delicious breakfast. Jumba is in the best possible location. 5 minutes walk to Istiklal, from where there are countless small side streets with fabulous bars, cafes, restaurants, galleries, design/boutique shops. Its a bit of a walk (40 min) to Sultanahmet where all the major sites are, but the walk is safe and enjoyable.

This hostel is very well located. The staff is lovely and wil do everything's possible to help you, and they want you to feel at home. The breakfast is delicious, and if you're hungry, food/water/tea/coffee is available anytime. They gives you towels, and the bed are super comfy. 2 minors problems : The sign of the hostel in front of the building is way too small. And the rooms are quite small. This is definitely the best deal and hostel I had in Turkey. Will go back there without any hesitation

Jumba is nice and cosy and the three sisters who run the Hostel and Adrian who works there are friendly, welcoming and helpful. The atmosphere is very personal. The breakfast is one of the best you can get in Hostels and Adrian makes very good omelettes :). Rooms are nice and clean although the bathroom is very small. It's located in a small and quiet street not far from Taksim and other tourist attractions. The Hostel is surrounded by many good restaurants and cafes with fair prices.

It was a very good stay, the hostel is near many places, and near the tram so you can good every where. The staff is very attentive and friendly. There are little problem with de cleanliness, because there are many cats in the neighborhood but there is no a very big problem.

we (2 people) stayed in the twin room which was bunk beds and it would have to have been the smallest room I have ever stayed in, just passable for one person!! great staff and owners and good location no mosque noise at all! double rooms definitely better size

Fantastic little hostel.... Not overrun with tons of people coming and going and has a gorgeous bohemian feel to it... When you arrive you feel like one of the family to the sisters. They look after their guests beautifully and are so helpful and friendly to newcombers to the city. The rooms are spotless and very comfortable for a hostel. The hostel itself is planned well for meeting & chatting to ppl over breakfast & chillaxing. Location wasexce llent with lots of quirky outside cafes & shops.

Jumba is a very nice and cosy hostel in a great location. It's run by 3 very friendly and hospitable sisters who do everything to turn the place into a kind of home away from home. And the breakfast with fresh omelettes is very tasty!

Everything was great. We feel really confortable at Jumba Hostel. Amazing breakfast included and the staff is absolutely kind and helpful. Couldn't be better. We'll certainly go back. Thanks Lahika, Alev and Adrian!

Adrian, the breakfast & boutique lobby area are all great. No complaints. The only dorm room is in the basement. This means the room is always damp, dark, and stuffy (it lacks real air flow). It feels lonely. The beds are just ok but the blankets & pillow are damp. The furniture is also uninspiring & lacks the love and creativity that you see in the lobby photos. The bathroom is also unloved. I want to like this hostel, but for the comparatively steep dorm bed price, I was expecting a bit more.

We had an amazing stay in a really cool atmosphere, we'll definetly save the hostel as a place to stay when coming again to Istambul. The hospitality and the location was superb. :)

Very nice, clean and comfortable hostel. The owners are extremely friendly and make you feel like a guest in their home from the very start, arriving at the hostel even feels like going into a friend's living room. The rooms are very nicely decorated, the roof-terrace is a great place for relaxing and the breakfast is very complete. We will definitely come again whenever we find ourselves in Istanbul again, greatly recommend!
