I cannot recommend Hostel Jumba highly enough! It's located in the midst of all the action of Taksim, a short walk up the street to Istiklal, not far from ATMs, shopping, and great dining/clubs, Alev, Lahika, and Eda are gracious hosts, and the hostel itself is immaculate. The girls know how to take care of their guests and ensure that even single travelers like myself have drinking/dancing partners. Thanks you so much for showing me the best side of Istanbul!

Lovely atmosphere and fantastic staff in a cool and exciting neighbourhood. Can definitely recommend a stay at Jumba Hostel!


I couldn't wish for a better place to stay in Istanbul! Location is excellent!- you can easily walk everywhere, if you cannot reach something on foot then public transportation is very close too. Even though it is in Taksim- nothing is bothering your sleep at night. And- you definitely want to get up for breakfast! Personal and friendly attitude can be seen in every small detail. Beautiful hostel in a beautiful city.

This was the best hostel I have stayed in so far. The rooms are beautifully decorated, the beds are very comfy, every morning, the breakfast was prepared for each of us individually and over all, the three sisters make you feel at home right away. They always have tea, coffee and an answer to every question. There is no better place to go!!!


I stayed at Jumba hostel for 6 nights and had an awesome time there. the three sisters are wonderful and were so nice to us. every morning we got surprised by a more delicious breakfast! the area is very lovely and there are lots of nice restaurants, cool bars and clubs, cute shops and for sure the Istiklal street where you can find everything at any time next to the hostel. I wish them all the best for the future and hope to be able to come back to Jumba hostel so soon! :-)


The best parts of cosmopolitan life in Istanbul are found in this hostel - small but everything is quality - the beds very comfy, the towels are freshly laundered and fluffy and the hospitality is genuine and memorable. This is like a small boutique hotel with a vibrant feel and great place to learn the best parts of life in Istanbul from three sisters who are passionate about their city. You may even spot some celebrities there... well look-alike anyway. Highly recommended.
