Okay hostel. Staff are nice but not really helpful. Could be a lot cleaner but you definitely get what you pay for. Would reccomend to those on an extreme budget.

Great location minutes walk from all sites. Staff were really friendly and helpful in organising things. Wi-Fi worked great too. The bathrooms were a bit dirty and not cleaned regularly. Room could have gone a fan or something as well. Overall would recommend!

We stayed at Mavi for 4 nights. It was a good hostel for what we paid. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. The Hostel itself was fairly clean but the dorm we stayed in wasn't cleaned regularly during our stay. The floor got a little dusty. Breakfast was simple but good. Best part of the hostel is its location. Literally 3 minutes away from the palace and Hagia Sophia. Would recommend this place to backpackers travelling to Istanbul for sure.

This great hostel is very nice. The location is also perfect. You must stat here at least 2 weeks for visiting near the blue mosque.

Mavi Guesthouse was in an amazing spot, only about a 200m walk to the Hagia Sophia and Topkapi Palace. Tram station was only another 200m up from there. Wasn't really any areas to hang out with other people from the hostel though so wasn't the best atmosphere. The staff were very friendly and helpful and Ali the owner was very knowledgable about not only Istanbul but pretty much the rest of Turkey as well. Would recommend people to stay here.

A very good hostel right at the back of Ayasofia (Hagia Sofia). Incredible view from the roof which you can enjoy at night undisturbed. Its a little cramped but clean with all other facilities (breakfast, water, WiFi etc.). Cannot get better with this kind of money.

Mavi Guesthouse is a hostel located a few blocks away from Hague Sofia and the Blue Mosque, as well as some other points of interest. The hostel itself is very clean, has great wifi and a nice view of the mosques and the Bosphorus from the balcony. You can contact the staff beforehand to set up private transport from the airport (either one of the two near Istanbul) to the hostel and back. Ali, the owner, is an incredible person, who will go out of his way to help you have an incredible stay.
