Right across the street from the blue Mosque. The staff were very friendly, spoke very good English and were helpful. The room was clean, so was the shower and the loo. The hot water depended on who was taking a shower a floor below at the same time. I was lucky but the girl I was sharing the room with was telling horror stories (no idea whether they are true). Breakfast was nice, small towels were free, big ones for hire. WiFi worked fine both in the common area and in the rooms.


When we were looking for a place to stay in Istanbul the location and the price became the most important factors why we made our choice in favor of Old City Hostel. Lots of interesting sights are in a walking distance. The tram station is almost at the door steps. We spent 10 hours on exploring the city and after a long day when we got tired of walking we just sat in Old City Hostel cafe drinking wine and talking about life. The best vacation ever!
