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.

Auberge tenue par une famille très sympathique et disponible. Située à quelques pas du site touristique principal (Mosquée bleue, Sainte Sophie et Topkapi). Facilement accessible en tramway et puis marcher quelques minutes (ne pas hésiter à demander aux gens car l'auberge se trouve dans une petite ruelle). Pour le petit budgey, c'est une auberge tout à fait recommandable.

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.

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.

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.
