The staff at Jumba Hostel is great. They are very friendly and full of good conversation. They are also helpful and knowledgeable about the city, whether it's with given suggestions about what to do or how to get around town. The breakfasts were really good: thanks Edrian! The hostel is nice and quaint and the location is very good. The facilities are nice (esp. bathroom and common room) but a little on the small side, but that's to be expected in a city with such a big population. Thanks Jumba!

Great Hostel - Staff were very friendly and very welcoming. Being locals, it also meant they were able to give great tips on places to see, things to try, restaurants and bars to visit. The hostel itself was very comfortable, clean and relaxing. Best of all was the breakfast - many thanks to Adrian for cooking up some delicious treats in the morning. Great to see a hostel that advertises free breakfast and actually provides tasty, home cooked food, rather than just bread + jam!

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.
