Need to fix the locks on some showers. Other than that, a great hostel!

The hostel staff could not have been more helpful and kind to me! I ran into some small issues upon arriving in Istanbul and they made sure to take good care of me. Sultanahmet is a bit too busy for my liking but you really are right next to the major sites. Would recommend! The terrace is great at sunset.

Wonderful stay! Metropolis hostel is the best hostel in İstanbul. We arrived early in the morning and they storaged our bags till our room gets ready and while we were waiting for our room we were informed about İstanbul and things to do in turkey. Staff here at metropolis hostel is very helpful , friendly and knowlodgeable about country. THey booked a bus ticket for us to cappadocia and free pick up service picked us up from hostel and it was absolutely a great service.

One of the best one l have stayed in and l have stayed. The location is unbeatable. You can easly walk most of places both in old and new town. The free breakfast served at roof bar is much better than most of 2 -3 stars hotel. Staff is the best, they are very friendly and helpful and ready to talk and listen you. All in all a great stay at METROPOLIS

Rooftop with great ocean view But the staff were a bit pushy as to joining a tour to somewhere else from Istanbul. It might give you a feeling of being scammed!!

Everyone that works here is incredibly friendly and helpful! And the complimentary breakfast is delicious. It features fruits and vegetables, as well as, yogurt and eggs. The rooms are comfortable and have air conditioning. There is only one bathroom on each floor so it can be a bit of a wait, but they're are and the other guests were understanding. The roof top bar is also very nice and good for meeting other travelers. This is one of the best hostels I've stayed in and the best value!

Location’s awesome, easy walking distance to all of the major sights. The terrace is an amazing place to relax and chill. The breakfast is delicious, as is the food from the rooftop restaurant onsite. Rooms are impeccably clean and spacious. Most hostels in Istanbul don't have a guest kitchen but you're steps away from a bunch of restaurants plus the onsite. The staff are really knowledgeable and extremely fun to joke around with. Stayed 8 nights and extended another 5. Would defo stay again.

Great place. The private bedroom at the 1st floor at the end of the corridor has a window on each side with a great view over the Bosphorus.

Nice hostel in old part of Istanbul. Close walking distance to the main sites. Restaurants and shops nearby. Staff friendly and happy to help organise trips transfers etc. Rooftop bar good views and nice place for drink or to have breakfast. Note payment by cash or extra 8% to use credit card. Pretty tight staircase up to rooms and poor water pressure in shower.

The metropolis is well located near the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sofya. As a first time visitor to Istanbul, I wanted to be close to many of the sights so I could return at different times of the day (different lighting for photos, shorter lines in the afternoons...), and I was able to do that! The staff is helpful and cheerful and they're able to store your luggage if you're traveling elsewhere and want to leave some luggage in Istanbul (5€/week). Bar up on the roof and food delivery available!

Stayed at Metropolis for 3 nights in July. Rooms were clean, spacious and had great air-con. Rooptop has amazing views. Staff were friendly. Only down side was the number of bathrooms/toilets meant there were long lines to wait in the morning and at the end of the day. Otherwise great hostel.

Bathrooms were very clean. Each bed had it's own little light and an outlet (amazing!). The rooftop restaurant / bar was amazing. It was so nice to eat breakfast in the morning up there. Breakfast was great too. The staff was helpful and location cannot be beat. Really easy walk to Aya Sofya, and the hostel is right around the corner from a busy, restaurant filled area.

It was a little bit hard to find the hostel when I arrive, because of the many different streets in Istanbul, but actually it is REALLY well located. Near the main touristic sights, restaurants and public transportation. The view of my room was amazing also!
