For the money you pay its impossible to ask for more. If you come to party the location is perfect because is in the heart of the night life. But i would not recommend it if you are looking to be near to touristic attractions.


Very helpful and kind staff. Nice breakfast. Wireless just in lobby. You also should try food in Ehlitat Lokantas restaurant which is very close to hostel , just in front of the alley, Turkish food fresh and cheap ;)


Location was good. It was a little bit noisy but not too bad. The bathroom on the ground level can only be used for peeing and the breakfast is pretty lacking. I personally was unable to ever connect to the wifi but my friend using a labtop managed to get on for brief periods. It's not an awful place, just don't expect anything more than your bed and you'll be satisfied.
