This hostel definitely is a good place to stay at! The staff was very friendly and always ready to help. The breakfast was simple but good. Lots of hotspots are very close and there also is great terrace on top of the hostel! It is right in the center of the old city, beside the blue mosque and everything in easy walking distance. We really enjoyed our stay:)

Nobel Hostel is in the best part of Istanbul while its staff are all very nice and know everything about the country. When you heard the staff answered:"go up then turn right, go straigt and see the mail box in front of Aya Sopia" you love them so much. Like your Turkish family. Also, the travel agency they cooprated is professional and the price they provided is the lowest whether compard with what kind of tourists. Wonderful breakfast!!!!


Breakfast was good, there was wifi. It was my second time staying at Nobel hostel and I have to say the private ensuite rooms are nicer than the shared rooms. The views are amazing here, you can see the Blue Mosque as if it was in your back yard. We had a three bed ensuite and it had a balcony with an amazing view. Location is in the heart of Sultanahmet. I would stay here again. The only challenge was getting up the very narrow spiraling stairs with your luggage!


Very friendly staff and they gave me a lot of information. Lack of common areas to create a hostel atmosphere


Pros: Breakfast, location, beds were all AMAZING The view from the terrace is sensational The staff were kind Cons: The bathrooms smelt bad The is no common area to meet other travellers I would stay here again happily
