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!
The good; great location, amazing terrace, good wifi, comfortable and good breakfast and amazing location. The bad, there was no lock on the room door, people from the public who are coming to eat on the terrace could walk into dorm.

I wanna marry the guy from reception! The one with the nice british accent! He's so kind and handsome!! LOL Apart from that i was only dissappinted by the fact the lovkers cannot Be properly locked,
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!
The location is excellent!!! The private room are ok but they could have some more atmosphere. The breakfast was very nice.
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
Outstanding views from the terrasse; super breakfast and very nice and helpful staff. Best location in town near everything and not too Noisy. Will return for sure.
I had a great time in this hostel! I recommend this hostel, because of the location, staff, breakfast included and the good matrasses. The location is perfect (next to the Blue Mosque, Aya Sophia, several water pipe places). Instead of a common living room there is a great roof terras from which you have a great view over Sultanahmet, the old city centre. There is no kitchen you can use, but eating in Turkisch restaurants is very cheap, so I didn't really miss it. Bathrooms could be cleaner.
One of the best hostels I've stayed. The conditions were pretty good, the breakfast also, but the location, the view from the terrace and the staff...excellent :) Definitely would recommend !
Me and my other 2 friends staied n a 3 beeds room with private bathroom for the first 3 nights. The room was ok, a little small for 3 people but ok. The cleanliness could be much better. The fourth night we staied in a 3 beds room with no private bathroom. The room was not so clean, the air conditioning not working and the common bathroom was completelya disaster. Very very dirty and the shower broken. Fortunately only one night we had to stay in that room.
Very nice hostel with the best location in Sultanahmet at a very affordable price: less than 5 minutes walk till the Blue Mosque or Hagia Sophia. Very polite staff, cool rooms and oh, the view from the terrace: you can see the Blue Mosque on one side and the Marmaray sea on the other. The hostel also provides food services and they are just great. Definitely worth staying over there!
