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.

Wonderful hostel , located in a quite street yet is just 5 – 10 minutes walking distance from most popüler attractions, Very friendly staff always ready for any question , they organize cheap airport transfers, daily Gallipoli tours , baths and bosphorus cruise, free breakfast is quite yummy and the view from terrace is out of this world, This the cleanest hostel I ever stayyed. Definetly worth the money you pay for.

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!

Great hostel! I just wished my room's a/c had worked because it was really hot in there by morning even with windows open. Otherwise, rooms were clean, bathrooms were clean, and rooftop terrace and free breakfast was great! Staff was also friendly and helpful.

Great location! Friendly staff, this was the beginning of two weeks in Turkey, my friend who I was traveling with has a nut allergy, the staff were very helpfull in teaching us how to say it in Turkish and even wrote a note in Turkish that she could use any where we ate so that the waiters would understand.

Near perfect hostel exept for one tiny little detail. On their page they claim to have 24 hours hot water. In reality they had problems even offering 24 hours running water, much less hot. During our four days we had one day with no water at all, and two afternoons with a dribbel of luke warm water. Other than that, the place is great, good breakfast (bread, cheese, meat, greens, honey, jam, yoghurt, coffee/tea) convenient location and amazing roofbar. The staff is freindly and helpfull as well.

Overall a good hostel. Did not like that the front door was open to the street 24/7, yet it was not always manned by a staff member as they were usually up in the terrace bar on an evening. There could have been more bathroom facilities as we found ourselves waiting to use the toilet on numerous occasions. The view from the terrace bar was fantastic; eating breakfast up there every morning was a pleasure. The breakfast was great and the two lady's who served breakfast were very friendly.

thanks very much for your review also for staying with us, just wanted to correct 2 things, our staff monitoring enterance 24/ 7 via sec. cam even while they stay on the roof, we have quite enough number of shower and toilets and we have explained to you upon check in that while one of the bathroom is busy you could use the others in lower or uper floors and no need to wait,

A nice stay at this Hostel - I actually stayed here on 2 separate occasions in a double room - great that they gave me a single room price. The second time - I had missed a flight and was desperate for accommodation and the Metropolis staff came to the rescue! Also a good time up on the rooftop meeting fellow travelers while having shisha

Great Hostel! The beautiful rooftop terrace and daily breakfast alone are fantastic. The staff are very helpful and the location is perfect for all the big tourist attractions in the city. I would definitely recommend this hostel.

Aircon was leaking and the place is rather squeezy but location is very good and arguably worth the price.
