If you're looking for a calm hostel, friendly staff and by far the most genuine location in Istanbul, this is the place for you. Only two complaints: 1. The showers need to be renovated, 2/3 was functioning but they are in great need of improvement. 2. Some nights the staff came in late to hang laundry in the dorm room and the washing machine sometimes were on during the night. Worth mentioning is that I switched to this hostel from another which was a successful move.

Merhaba! Puffin hostel is located right in the heart of Besiktas, the student quarters of Istanbul. A good hostel offering a fully equiped kitchen, a small café/bar set up, a great terrace and large dorms. A lovely clean and quiet hostel. Güle! Güle!

Kind staff. Great roof top area and kitchen. Great chilled out location with nice cafes. Just not a lot of socialising going on while I was there. The dorm room and bathroom could have been cleaner.

Between the outstandingly friendly and personable staff, and a location in the middle of what I found to be the most enjoyable district of the city (mix of endless restaurants/bars/coffee shops, yet very safe) - this hostel is on a street with restaurants and about ~50 meters away from the mass set of restaurants and day/nightlife that Besiktas has to offer. Honestly could not recommend this hostel more. I have stayed in hostels all over the world - this is a good, well-located, clean hostel.
