Property Information:

We called our hostel Rapunzel because we knew that it would be a place that belongs to fairy tales. It has the best location near Galata Tower between İstiklal Street, which can be reached in 2 minutes by walking and Sultanahmet, old city, which is 10 minutes away with tram.

Our stone building, designed by an Italian architect Salvatore Fleri, is 143 years old. It has beautiful brick walls, wooden staircase and doors and a fantastic roof top terrace, which you can enjoy 24 hours, for either having your delicious, breakfast or an afternoon beer or for smoking. We have 7 spotless rooms with private bathroom, toilet and air conditioning. You don’t need to bring linens, microfiber duvets, hairdryers, because we provide them for free. We also offer free breakfast, tee, coffee and last but not least free Wi-Fi.

We are engineers, artists, architects and designers of Rapunzel, as a result the place is formed up by the idea of DIY (do-it-yourself). We try to renovate our hostel continuously, so that everything keep up in good shape. So don’t get surprised if things look like brand new.

Check-out is at 12:00, however you can leave your bags here for as much as you want. Check-in is normally at 14:00, but you can get your room earlier, if it is not occupied the previous night. But if you will arrive Rapunzel very late, that’s not a problem either. Our multilingual staff will be available 24 hours a day to provide assistance, help, recommendations and insider tips about anything you can think of. We organize spontaneous pub crawls to show where locals hang around. We have tips about the most recent cafes or trendy places in such a dynamic city. If you prefer to stay inside rather than out, you’ll also listen to our beautiful playlists, created in years with a very picky selection.

Feel free to book now to have a great stay and enjoy being a friend of Rapunzel.

Cancellation policy: 4 days prior arrival date. In case of a late cancellation or a no show, we will charge the first night
