We stayed in the 8 bed dorm and it was just the 2 of us for 2 nights of the 3 we stayed so that was nice. The beds were really comfy and the bathrooms really clean. Breakfast was delicious and the staff were very friendly and helpful. We will totally stay again when in Instanbul.

This is one of the smaller hostel I ever found: in the ground floor there are the 6 and 4 bedded dorms and in 10 m. you can find everything: reception,bed,2 toilets (often taken in the morning) and the common room with a large tv screen ( only BBC). Wifi does't work well. The area of Cankurtan ,beetween the railway and the sea, is a poor area, next to the more tourist Sultanahmed ,lonely during the night. The breakfast is turkish; they give you 10 items:5 olives,2 slices tomatoes,3 slices cucumb

Would have rated higher if not for obnoxious neighbours "sharing" the kitchen and bathroom facilities. Checked out a day early, no fault of the staff. Seemingly no restrictions on music and noise after certain hours. Only got 6 hours total sleep in two nights

The personal was very nice and tried to help but was not easy with the English language. Hair in the bath room but the rooms were very clean and bed great for sleep.

Very nice hostel with a good breakfast. Very comfortable and clean beds. A bit far from trams and the neighbourhood was very quiet.

The apartment has quite good kitchen, but without ANY dishes, plates, cups... Bring your own.

The beds were very comfortable however it would have been nice to be able to use the kitchen even if it were only certain times a day.

We stayed only one night but the breakfast was amazing. The room and bathromm are really clean. Hope we can communicatet with receptionists because of language barrier. If their skills improves, the hostel provides better information to customers. It's pretty far from the station if you take a public transportation especially when we got lost. Still, quiet neighborhood and facilities are clean enough.

Piya hostel is really nice, clean and has many brochures with maps of Istanbul which is very helpfull. We were in room for 4 people, there were very comfortable beds, room was bright and warm. Staff is friendly and hostel is located in quiet area so you could get some good rest after walking around the city.

Good location in a genuine local neighborhood. Good breakfast. Extremely kind and helpful staff attending even at 3am. Room was cramped for 4 people. Overall tight for space. No lounge for relaxing; cafeteria doubles as wi-fi zone.

My stay at Piya was fantastic!! The staff were so helpful and went out of their way to make sure that my stay was comfortable and secure. The beds were amazingly comfortable (the best I came across in my three weeks of hostelling around Turkey!) and the atmosphere was quiet and laid-back. If you're looking for a respectful and quiet place to stay that's still in the heart of Istanbul, Piya is the best choice by far!

Nice little hostel in the old town a short walk from all the sites. The staff were low key but very helpful. We had a great room at street level. A highlight was breakfast where, we would all sit overlooking the street and discuss the interesting architecture of the adjacent buildings ( apparently using a spirit level is not necessary). It was hosteling of old where people would talk talk to each other and recommend places and things to see and do. We loved it.
