Really good location, right next to Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia. The staff is really friendly. Impossible to get a better cost-benefit in Istanbul! We are satisfied with the days we spent there and also with the price we paid.


location is really great in the middle of sultanahmet sites. The staff is really nice and helpfull and really capable in solving any problems. It was a really great stay, thanks a lot!


Not a place to meet people but good location, very comfortable rooms! The street can be loud at night but if you can sleep through some noise it shouldn't be a problem.


We were 6 South African girls staying in the New Backpackers a few weeks ago - we had a lovely time and found everything excellent and the staff very friendly and helpful. Yusef is the heart and soul of this vibrant hostel and restaurant and were always welcoming us so friendly when we were out. Whenever we had a problem, he was always there to quickly sort it out for us. Their food is excellent and it was nice to stay in the centre of the vibe.
