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.


Enjoyed my stay. Staff were friendly and helpful. Facilities were clean and beds were comfortable.


Nothing to write home about. Staff were helpful though.


This Hostel is the best. You feel like at home because of the kindness from the people who works there. It is not a party hostel, it is a quiet familiar place.


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.
