if you want to sleep with mouses and bed-bugs, this is the better place


I´m not picky when it comes to hostels, but this one wasn´t my cup of tea. You almost never see the staff, ther´s no common room and overall it feels pretty claustrophobic. Located on a pretty shady street aswell.


Arrived at 9pm and no-one was there. Someone in the street let us use his phone to call. 15 mins later the manager? arrived and said that the twin room we booked was unavailable, so we had to stay in the dorm. He offered a discount for this which turned out to actually be the normal price after we did the conversion. Trying to save money by a 'minimalist' staffing? Places already on websites like hostelworld don't need to have good customer services? A simple hotel nearby was cheaper & better!

Close to Galata tower, however its about 30mins walk to grand bazaar and blue mosque - we paid for public transport each day 4 lira each way so it added up. No maps provided from hostel and could only talk to staff avaliable after 2pm which was difficult. Coming back after day out no one seemed to be around for help as they don't stay at the hostel for long each day. But great price for a small apartment to ourselves.


Yes, it's hard to find


We had a very pleasant and relaxing experience at Manon Hostel, however getting there was a bit tough. The hostel gives explicit instructions but they are not accurate. The hostel is more like 50 meters from the green mosque rather than 150 meters :) also, the street to look for is actually a flight of stairs. The only way I recognized it was a vertical neon sign saying MANON. If cleanliness is important to you, don't even consider the dorms. We paid 2.5 TL extra per person per night for a priv
