Lovely hostel, with a reasonable location for Taksim in the New City. Very friendly staff, but English could be slightly better, and knowledge of the surrounding area could be better. Great breakfast every morning included in price, again from friendly staff. Quiet - you can get sleep. Safe area, also very near to the life at Galata bridge.

Very nice hostel, the staff is extremely helpful and gave us valuable recommendations on what to do and where to go in Istanbul. We will definitely stay there again next time.
Three flights of long stairs to negotiate but the staff did help us carry our bags on arrival. Warm breakfast was well prepared by a cook when she sees you approaching. Can be a bit difficult to find, due to lack of proper instruction. We had to use a GPS. Suggest the hostel to attach a google map to its photos with directions from the tram stop.

The staff was very helpful and were always smiling. I especially liked the breakfast and the accessibility to the water and nearby sites.
