It was my third visit in Piya Hostel and one more I was very glad of it. The atmosphere was so nice that I will be come back more time.


Close to everything to visit. Nice little street with real life people. Owner very helpful Very nice breakfast Room with one double bed was very small. Floors were not cleaned every day.

Friendly staff, super breakfast!


Very simple hostel, however the staff was very sympathic and helpfull


Great hostel. One of the best hostel breakfasts I've had


We weren't allowed to use the shower or toilet between 12 and 8 am, which was kinda annoying. The rooms were very hot and the ventilator wasn't working well. The hostel was very hard to find, so we took a taxi, but the taxidriver also didn't know where to find it. Once you know it, it's actually really easy to find, so don't be scared haha. The location itself was very good, since the Blue Mosque is a five minutes walk and there are many cheap restaurants (with nice rooftops!!!!) close-by.


It's a nice place, simple but nice :) It includes a really good and big breakfast, it's clean, the beds are comfy, good wifi and friendly staff, and the location is good and central (although it's quite hard to find). Really good value for money! :) There's not really a hostel-atmosphere, but if you arelooking for a place just to sleep and have a nice breakfast (and save money), it's perfect :)


Nice place, though the street outside was loud until very late at night, so with no AC we had the choice of sweating with the windows closed or listening to screaming kids. The breakfast was very decent, but it's the location that makes Piya a winner.


Our room had about 50 dead horse flies littered all over the floor when we got there. The staff "fixed" the situation by quickly sweeping the floor. Room had no AC at all so it was hot and sticky in there. Woke up to find more dead flies on the floor. Shower was partially broken. We cancelled our stay after one night and moved to another hotel.
