The staffs were very friendly and the location was very convenient because it is very near to most of the attraction places.


Very good place to stay in.


Great location, staff is amazing, you get discount in the restaurant and free tea. Overall a very pleasant stay. I definitely would go back!

Good hostel, smart staff, very good location - near by the Blue Mosque, Aya Sofia, Topkapipalace, Cisterna Basilica; 15 - 20 min walking distance to Galatabridge and New Mosque as well as the Grand Bazaar.

Nice small hostel in 3 minutes walk from Blue Mosque. Cozy room with all facilities (even hairdryer). Special thanks for very nice owner Ahmet for his welcome and hospitality. The only one small disadvantage is quite frugal breakfast (an egg, few pieces of vegetables and few pieces of cheese). As the hostel is situated on the street full of restaurants , it might be a bit loud at night. To sum up - I'll highly recommend this hostel and definitely will stay there again.

Good hostel in the beautiful street which is very close to Aya Sofia. Nice and friendly staff.


We had a lot of good experiences when we were in the hotel, it was one of the most wonderful trip we ever had. Your employees gave me the real best services and genuine care to us, we really appreciated that and we are looking forward to see you again.

Great room, at a great price, especially for a private ensuite. Could maybe have done with a duvet on the double bed for extra warmth in winter. Lovely friendly owner. Great breakfast.


We have stayed there in a private room with my girl friend for a weekend. Good location, clean room with TV and air conditioning but main negative thing is there is no sound isolation. You will hear every single step outside your room, and what is worse is you will hear the restaurants' noise all the night. Breakfast is not open buffet and you do not feel like it is a hostel, well maybe they even do not have a license, because as far as I know there has to be a reception for a hostel.


great location. clean & cozy.
