The location is not that good. Not easy to find. There is no sign in front of the building and we asked many people but no one knew. It may be close to Ayasofia and Topkapi but not close to tram station. Especially if you have to walk in the rain and cold. There are also many restaurants (pub/bar?) nearby so the night was quite noisy. We booked a room for 2 persons but there was only 1 towel. The room is small and quite cold at night. The blanket is thin. Wifi only 1st floor.
If you are coming to Istanbul, New backpackers is the place you should stay at! The host is such a good person, so friendly and helpful. We stayed here for two nights, a great experience. I love the way this hostel is decorated, really artistic. The street it is situated on is really nice, full of amazing restaurants. 5 minutes walk to blue mosque and hagia sophia.
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!
