Thought I was going to catch something from the beds and bedding provided. Bathroom was built on a slope - drain to the shower was at the highest point. Provided with equipment to move water up the slope into the drain so the bathroom doesn't flood out into the dorm...


Friendly staff and very well located. For travelers who choose a hostel to meet other people this might not be the perfect place, since the only 'social area' is the kitchen in the basement, where nobody hangs out.


Serhat and his staff were very accommodating. He and his staff were more than helpful for any questions and went out of their way to make my stay friendly and fun.


Close to Taksim where is a good place for everything.
