I saw all the reviews and then booked in this hostel . My experience is as follows : 1. Location wise is superb . Can cover the major attractions of Sultanahmet in one day .The blue mosque , agiya Sofia , bosophorous cruise , cistern if walkable distance . From roof top of the hostel you can see the blue mosque . 2. Staff -Remarkable guy at reception . He has an answer for everything you need . You need expensive or less expensive trips , locations etc . He will guide you without any hassle.


The hostel has a great location and perfect view from the rooftop. I satyed in second floor and the shower door was broken, so the whole bathroom was wet most of the time. Nice staff.

Location of this hostel is AMAZING! The hostel is quite busy - people coming and leaving all the time, but stuff will answer to your questions - if you have any. Stairs to get to the roof terrace are quite narrow, but once you get there it is totally worth the effort :)


The front desk staff were so friendly. The rooftop terrace view is amazing. The breakfast was delicious. Overall a great experience!


I loved my stay in Noble Hostel, the staff has been extremely helpful in every occasion and available 24h. The hostel is clean and the terrace has a great view on the Blu Mosque. I would surely reccomend this hostel and come back there if i will have the chance to go back to Turkey.

Nobel Hostel is in a great location, central to all the sites in Istanbul. The staff are helpful when required and the rooftop has a beautiful view of the Blue Mosque. The stairwell is definitely not doable for anyone with any physical impairements/knee injuries etc- it's very steep and narrow!


Breakfast was great! And the restaurant attached to the hostel had some good staple Turkish dishes.


Extremely well spotted, close to the main touristic areas. Great breakfast. Some people from the staff is nice, some are not. Our bathroom was shared and smell bad all the time. Good restaurant with a nice terrace. The guys that attended us on the restaurant were great people. Air conditioning in our room broke every night we stayed there. Would come back for location, but not for cleaning and air conditioning, for sure.


It needs to improve the breakfast.There are hostels in istambul with complete turkish breakfast and a lot of varieties of good and healthy food. Beds and bathroom are clean but one locker at my room wasnt working. good value for money hostel.


Front desk staff was super helpful. Great complimentary breakfast at the attached cafe in the morning. Rooftop deck has an amazing view and it's a two minute walk to the Blue Mosque and Agia Sopfia. Only complaint was about the other guests in my room and that's not the hostel's fault. Would defniitely return!
