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

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.
