location is good but a little hard to find. the room is clean and tidy. one of the staff is nice, one of them is just so so.


This hostel was OK. We liked the location and the rooms were very clean. The terrace had a great view. Breakfast was provided and was decent... Though be sure to get there earlier enough to get a hard boiled egg because they won't make more. Three staff was meh - didn't seem like they wanted to deal with us.


A few extra blankets as it can get cold and better maps of the city.


The best: the located, the roof with amazing view. It's ok: rooms, beds and bathroom To improve: the personal, is rude and don't give recommendation or details of your answers when you ask


Great place close to the sights and seaside. Breaky was delicious and the terrace has a gorgeous view. Not the most social of hostels as there wasn't a huge common room but still managed to meet People at breakfast and in the dorms. Dorms have lockers which are handy and a decent shower. A little hot as no aircon but clean and comfortable. A great price too - definitely worth a stay


I really loved this hostel and could not be better. First of all it has an amazing location. Close to all major attraction and with a map provided by reception it is very easy to find placec. Our room was great with süper nice view but you have better view at roof top where you meet other travelers. The atmospher is great, staff Will organise free shisha for guest to gather them together then Will take you to Taksim Sq for a pubcrawl. İt was great place and l would absolutely stay here again.

At this hostel you get what you pay for and nothing else. I didn't find there to be any sort of community vibe and the only common space is on the roof where you can't bring your own food or drinks. The rooftop does have a beautiful view though. The rooms were fine but there was only one bathroom with a shower and toilet in the same room - for the entire floor (about 14 ppl) so you have to fight to have a shower or even use the bathroom. The staff were hit and miss.


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


Great hostel in İstanbul. We had stay at this beautiful hostel four days and had great time and booked another two night for our return. Hostel has an amazing location. İt is kind of hard to find at begining so, l recommend you to arrange pick up service with hostel. When you make your arrangment they are waiting at airport for you to drop you of at hostel. The breakfast at roof bar is the best part of the day and also it is a great place to have a beer after a long day in busy İstanbul.

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.
