Hostel was really dirty everywhere, mold all over the ceiling of the room we stayed in and had to ask for clean sheets as the ones from last people were left on and sprawled across the beds. Bathroom and shower looked like it hadn't been cleaned in a long time and no toilet paper in any of the toilets, had to ask for that too. Breakfast was ok considering cheap price for room and location was very central but we weren't willing to stay a second night.

Affordable and right in the city centre. However, it´s a little bit neglected, they don´t clean the toilets and showers daily. I guess the Hostel saw better days long time ago. They advertise "pub crawl", but they no longer organize one.

The staff was really kind and helpful, however, the facilities were in a very rundown state. The room did not look like it had been cleaned in quite some time, e.g. the trash can had not been emptied, there was stains on the sheets and a lot of dust and dirt on the floor. The toilet and bathroom facilities were unclean and there was a certain odor to them. The kitchen open for general use was in a poor hygienic state and did not look all too inviting.

Everything is nice except a cold room. I understand that the management tries to save some money on the heating but that goes too far when a guest needs to warm himself by wearing a coat in the room.

Let's be reasonable, this is not a 5 star hotel so you really can't expect a lot. However, the hostel is located in Sultanahmet where most tourist attractions are located. The metro is also within 5-10min walk from the hostel. However, just be extra careful because the way going to the hostel from Hagia Sophia is not well lit and dogs roam around freely. You won't have any problem if you're walking during the daytime, but just be extra careful at night especially if you're travelling alone.

The hostel is defenetly not well managed. We had 3 days without hot water and the owner didn't care or call someone to solve the problem internet stop working as well and a lot of other things that showed lack of responsibility. The only good thing is the location but definitely I would not stay or recommend this place

The Hostal needs at least some maintenance and cleaning ( the kitchen and the bathrooms are disgusting). Was the worst Hostal ever.... With a little investment could be a great Hostal....
