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.

Great location and very clean. Comfortable beds and great breakfast on rooftop with a view. It didn't seem like there was much of an atmosphere for meeting other travelers.

Great view from the rooftop terrace on Marmara Sea. Modern hostel and clean facilities. Friendly staff and good breakfast. The neighborhood is surprisingly quiet as Blue Mosque is in walking distance. Many restaurants and other hostels close by so the whole area seems to be prepared for backpackers (we preferred the little alleys in Beyoglu as these are not too touristic...).

Metropolis was a great hostel. The location of the hostel was great. One can easily walk to most of places in old town and it's just 5mins far to the tram. Breakfast served at terrace every morning was the best start. Also roof bar is a great place to have some drink and meet other travellers. I would stay here again!!!!

An exceptionally clean hostel. The rooftop terrace was a nice place to have a drink and meet people (I'm a 31yo male traveling solo). The menu they offer is from their nearby restaurant Babylonia which is really nice. If you're looking for a place about 5 minutes walk to Blue Mosque or Aya Sofia this place is definitely it. I paid 48TL per night for a 4-person dorm which was one of the more expensive hostels I stayed at but the cleanliness and proximity was worth it. Lockers in each room.

very nice hotel with beautiful roof terrace. offered food is good and prices are ok, definitely a great option for a calm evening after a day of exploring istanbul. you can't consume own foods and drink on the roof terrace though. common areas and bathrooms very small but clean and in good shape. very helpful and nice staff. they also offer tours in istanbul and bosporus and in the region, didn't take any so can't say anything on them. would definitely recommend it!

Great location if you want to be in the heart of the city. Everything is very clean but room was a bit small, and staff are lovely but only ever one on duty for both check in and the bar. Food is a bit pricy but free breakfast is good. Not much of a communal hostel feeling though, felt fairly empty while we were there. However it is very good value for money as far as hostels go.

Late hour of room-availibility - we needed to wait till 2pm to get keys; on the other hand - we could use toilet & shower & locker before; very clean room and shared toilets; beatiful view form roof-terrase where breakfast is served. Good location, 10minutes by walking to Blue Mosque.

This hostel is spotlessly clean in an amazing central location in Istanbul. It has a stunning view from it's rooftop terrace and the rooms are modern and well equipped with good security (key cards for rooms and safes) and there is 24hour reception. The only problem was you couldn't take your own food or drink on to the rooftop bar as they sold their own (which was pricier than the supermarket). Overall it was an excellent place with lovely staff that we would highly recommend.

Excellent hostel with great staff. Only small problem was no kitchen to cook for yourselves and no washing machine. Had the comfort and facilities of a hotel with the atmosphere of a hostel!

I would definitely return to this hostel. Pros: its kept spotlessly clean (rooms/bathrooms) and the rooftop terrace is 2nd to none overlooking the sea. I stayed in a 3rd floor 6 bed female dorm that again overlooked the sea with buge windows. My guy friend stayed in a room below ground level so wasnt as impressed. Impressive breakfast included. Cons: water pressure in shower
