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.

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!

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.

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!

What a refreshing experience from big box hotels! I will absolutely return to this hostel. Thank you for providing transportation to the airport at low cost in the middle of the night.

Nobel hostel was by far a cool place to stay at. The location was just perfect. The breakfast was very good, the staff was awesome, especially kurturus I believe was his name. Very comfy, but just small rooms, but not a big deal. My only problems were the bathroom. There must have been leaks or something because the floors were always wet. And the shower heads were very weak and would fall. But all in all, this place was awesome. I would stay here again no matter what.

I stayed here back in January - excellent location, wonderful breakfast, rooms were clean and well-furnished, though dorms were quite small. Staff were incredibly friendly and helpful, and the adjoining restaurant was fantastic. Only real negative was they needed a few more bathrooms! I would happily stay here again and sip tea on the patio in view of the Blue Mosque.
