firstly, hostel is located in the heart of istanbul, close to everywhere . I found the staff very helpfull, very clean and free breakfast , as well as free fiwire for the budget range it deserves 5 star,,


Great location , friendly staff , clean place !!! Thanks for everything !!!


Internet doesn´t work well; little bit noisy at night; equipment of the room is very poor... the last night we cover the window with newspaper because the light constantly went on and off.


I had a great experience with this hostel and i highly reccomend it - really friendly stuff, few minutes walk from the main istambul attractions, fantastic breakfast and really kind team. Thank you Piya hostel, you made my stay in Istambul really nice!!!

Piya was a nice little place to base ourselves on a quick visit to Istanbul. Its a calm place, the staff are all lovely, it's clean and quiet enough and what more can you ask for. The room was tiny, but that was probably exaggerated by travelling with the messiest friend! :) Breakfast is your typical turkish spread, I love a boiled egg and tea so it was fine, one day we even got fried eggs! The internet was a bit hit and miss, but it wasn't a problem. All in all it was a lovely stay.


The hostel was in an excellent location! so close to the Blue Mosque and excellent restaurants, the area was very safe. The breakfast was delicious and they staff was very amicable and nice. They also recommended nice places to go eat. In general it was a good experience.

The wifii sometimes is working and sometimes not. Our last night ruined by a bunch of guy who talk so loud in front of our room. The staff should straight away tell them not to make noise after 12.


Very nice place to stay in but a bit short on toilets as there were just 2 male and 2 female toilets for the whole hostel! The receptionist was really cool.


I would like to say that women and men's room should be seperatly.


I traveled a few times to Istanbul and this was the best hostel. In a small, quiet street a cozy hostel, not very big, in a wooden house. Very good breakfast. Very friendly owner. As it is a smaller privately-owned hostel it does not have 24-hours reception.
