Property Information:

Welcome to Planet Paprika Hostel, where you can experience the Turkish hospitality at the heart of Istanbul.

Our hostel is providing the cozy, friendly and clean place to stay. We are not a big , impersonal hulk hostel. We value the independent travelers and we are against any kind of discrimination. So come here to be a citizen of Planet Paprika.

And we have opened our Bar ; Planet paprika Bar is waiting you now :)
1. Location

Planet Paprika Hostel is conveniently located at Taksim square. We are the closest hostel to Taksim square and Taksim metro station , just a few steps away from Istiklal Street, the most happening place in Istanbul.

At Taksim you can have a better chance to mingle with the local, not with a tourist. And after the exhausting night out, you dont need to worry about the transportation to your hostel. We are right here to serve you.

We are also closer to old Istanbul; the touristic peninsula and big touristic spots. Grand Bazaar, Spice Bazaar, Blue Mosque, St. Sophia and Topkapı Palace. You can walk to Sultan Ahmet or you can take a metro with tram. We prefer walking. Since it takes only 30 mintutes from here to Eminn and a bit more to Sultan Ahmet on foot. On the way to old town you can visit Cite de Pera , Nevizade , Galata Tower, Galata Bridge , fish market ,Yeni Mosque, historical Sirkeci train Station, and so on. Yes. Everything you want to visit in Istanbul is on the way to Sultan Ahmet from our hostel.
And Taksim Square is the transportation hub in Istanbul, so you can visit almost everywhere without any worry.

    Not quite what I was expecting when I signed up... Not a bad owner but be aware that he speaks no english... it was dirty, no wifi in the rooms, no toilet paper in the bathrooms, poor kitchen amenities and next to no atmosphere. After my experience I moved to another Hostel the next day and was much happier. Many locals staying there seem to be there in transit, to make airport transfers and/or just get drunk on the weekend.
