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.

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.

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!
