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


great staff at this hostel, definitely recommended


Great location right near the Blue Mosque & Hagia Sophia, plenty of restaurants nearby. We stayed in a double room which was really comfortable & shared bathroom which was always clean & tidy. Staff were friendly & helpful. Breakfast on the rooftop overlooking the water was lovely. Would recommend this hostel to anyone.
