I stayed here 5 nights. Perfect location! 5 minutes from Taksim square, the metro line, main restaurants, with the Blue Mosque and Other tourist destinations a short distance away. Beautiful. Thank you for making me see the beautiful Istanbul!

Great location. Close to Taxim, but in a residential area so you can see real Turkish life. Also you don't hear the call to prayer hear so you can get a peaceful night' sleep if you are not accustomed to this part of Islamic culture. Clean, friendly, and welcoming. Thanks!

The hostel's location is excellent - all of historic Istanbul and Bosphorus area is easily accessible by foot while the hostel it self is a peaceful hide-away from all the tour groups. The staff are all very friendly and personable and go out of their way to make the stay memorable. Stayed at the double room with my partner and we had the greatest time. I cannot imagine staying at a better place location-wise.

The hostel is located close to the main shopping street in taksim but is at the end of a down-hill street. The street where the hostel is located is very empty (no people) at night so even if nothing happened I didn´t think it would be so safe for a woman travelling alone. The personel was very nice.

It was pretty good! Surprisingly safe, even though there are no locks to the doors to the rooms, and the staff is very friendly. It's uphill from a tram stop, and from there you can easily go to the Fatih district (with Topkaci Palace, the Hagia Sophia, and the Blue Mosque) or walk to Dolmabahce Palace, or take a ferry to Adalar for an island resort. It got really chilly during the night, though.

The place was good, specially for its location. However: - Lack of lockers (they said they sold them but sadly never had) - Lack of toilets (there was one toilet for like 12 people!) The rest was ok!! Staff was friendly. I think it was a good hostel but I've seen many better ones..

This is a very functional hostel in a great location. The vibe isn't that god and the kitchen is very basic but as a cheap option in an otherwise very expensive city it's a good bet.

It is a very good hostel in the center of Taksim, the best area to stay if youre coming for more than 2 nights to the city. The hostel is good and cheap, and the staff is super friendly(Specially Diran). I just didnt like the bathrooms, they are only one each floor, and somedays was really hard to get hot water.

Friendly staff, close enough to Taksim square if you want a workout, good wifi connection, handy laundry service. Warning: if you're sleeping in the dorms, bring earplugs.
