It was incredibly cheap and in a good location. The rooftop has an amazing view. There is no signage, so it can be tricky to find, especially at night. I had to call, which kind of defeated the purpose of staying somewhere really cheap. The bathrooms weren't very clean, it was not awful, but when paint is falling off the ceiling of the bathroom and it stays on the floor for 3 days, you know things aren't being cleaned. I'd pay a little more to stay somewhere else.


Best view I have ever seen in Istanbul. Incredible.


The Hostel is very placefull and is in a strategic position. It's a little challenging thw climb to reach it (in case you are coming from Thofane Tram stop Station) but the view, especially from the terrace, is worth the effort. The host is very friendly. The cleaning is not execellent

The apartment was good and had just what you need. It was clean, comfortable beds and a kitchen. The great thing about it is the location, in a calmed neighborhood, near public transport but most of all an AMAZING view of the city. You can see the water, the ships, Hagia Sophia, Sultanahmet, and the Topkapi palace, and the houses on the hills. It's worth a night of staying home just for the view. Serkan, the owner is a super nice guy, easy going and helpful. I wish I would've stayed longer.

The roof kitchen was a bit dirty and the stove was a bit dodgy. Really clean rooms and nice beds. 20 minute walk to almost every major site. Great value for the money.


Excellent place.Serkan was very helpfull and nice to talk with.
