Clean hostel with friendly staff and a great breakfast with lots of choice. Great location too and good views.


Perfect place for family. Room was bit small but except for that everything was just perfect. super friendly steff and owner, best breakfast in Turkey, clean and good facilities, and so on.


This hostel is amazing. The rooms are decent sized, the free breakfast has an great variety and the view from the rooftop is awesome

Owned & run by very helpful & friendly Turkish family. Mother's breakfast table & selection of jam's second to none! - nice to sit having breakfast on roof terrace watching the ships passing up the Bosphorous straights. We went for the Istanbul Marathon & as the Marmara Guesthouse was situated only 2 minutes walking distance from both the finish line - & the wonderful Blue Mosque + Aya Sofia Mosque - it was in an ideal position. Would stay again if re-visit Istanbul in the future.

My wife and I enjoyed our recent stay at the Marmara Guesthouse. It was quite, clean, well maintained and managed. it was all we could ask for. The staff were pleasant and helpful and the breakfast buffet delicious. Would recommend the Marmara to any potential travellers.
