Good location with a beautiful view from our room on the Bosporus. The view is even better on the terrace. Unfortunately it's not like other hostels regarding the atmosphere as I've only seen one other person. There's no reception either. It looks more like an apartment, although the name might say that already. There's no sign outside and we needed to call the owner. Once in he was very helpful. The reason I would go back is the view from room and roof terrace

We loved the location and the views from our room and the terrace were incredible. The only thing was that there was no formal reception, the owner just was around the building so definitely make sure you have his number (provided upon booking) and he knows when you are coming. He is really reliable and easy to get a hold of, but if you show up unannounced it will be hard to find him.

Great view from the rooftop terrace, lovely coffee shop downstairs, walking distance to galata +taxim and right next to tram stop. Area is wonderful - not touristy and the owner is very helpful and relaxed.

Everything there was more than perfect starting from Serkan the helpful warm owner, The location which mentioned in an article in The Guardian as one of best 5 places in the world (Also is just few steps away of Taksim), My room which was so simple...clean..sunny with a big window and an amazing view. Every day there was just incredible starting with Turkish coffee in the organic cafe right under the building of the hostel and ending it at night with a drink in the breathtaking rooftop terrace.

NR 19 Hostel has bright, airy rooms - more like a modern boutique hotel than a hostel. Bathrooms were clean, water was hot, it is quiet at night. The best part was the amazing view from our window over Taksim, Sultanahmet and the Bosphorus - the price you pay is a short walk up a steep hill from the Tophane tram station, and stairs. Serkan, the owner, is incredibly warm and helpful. He even mailed our postcards that we weren't able to mail ourselves. An short taxi/tram ride to the clubs.

I love love loved my stay at Nr. 19 Apartment. My room was simple, clean, and warm (in Dec/Jan) and the view was spectacular! Serkan (the manager) was very helpful and the other guests were very friendly. Plus, the terrace party on NYE was the perfect way to bring in the New Year!

We stayed in a very clean, bright and large double room with an incredible Istanbul view. The place is only a minute walk from the very heart of the dreamy Cihangir yet so quiet. It's impossible to start a bad day in such a wicked hood full of coolest cafes and restaurants. I'd definitely stay here again and recommend my friends.
