I had a wonderful stay, it really made my Istanbul experience fantastic. Everyone guests and staff included was extremely friendly, it has a very homey vibe. It was very easy to make friends with the other guests and as a result I was rarely alone in Istanbul. The location was perfect and the beds were also very comfortable. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to friends. Thanks again!

A cosy, relaxed place right by the tram line. Staff were knowledgeable and helpful. There was a power cut for 5 hours one night - the price you might have to pay for the romantic/traditional area. Also, the security lockers need improved.

Rapunzel is an excellent choice for a stay in Istanbul. Its location is not in the major tourist area and the area is quiet. But the area is also full of nice artist's shops and boutiques. The staff is helpful and was able to provide answers and suggestions for all of our questions. The rooftop terrace was a wonderful place to spend the evening.

Probably one of the Istanbul's best hostel.

The good: the roof deck: beautiful veiws, nice breeze, and the internet (usually) reached. Breakfast: tasty, a little different every day, and plenty of food. The people: the front desk was manned 24/7, spoke excellent English, and had lots of useful advice on what to do. Not as good: rooms could have used more electrical outlets. The hostel is in a good location, but up a very steep hill from the tram (the veiws though...) The bottom bunk was low- couldn't sit up. I'd stay again.

Great hostel surrounded by cute coffee shops, great restaurants and awesome shops. Also being very close to the tram line, it was super easy to get to all the main attractions. I would recommend buying an Istanbul card to use on the trams and train as travel is half price using the card. I stayed at Rapunzel with a friend in a twin room and then in the female dorm at the end of trip which were both very clean and comfortable. The staff were nice and the rooftop terrace was a highlight.

If you missed here, you would miss an opportunity to meet lots of face in istanbul. Highly recommend! The staffs are very kind and knowledgable. The view of roof and atmosphere is very good. Definitely i will stay here again! 술탄아흐멧에 있다 이곳에 갔는데 모든게 너무 좋았어요. 이스탄불에 오래 계시거나 두번째 방문이라면 아주 적합한 숙소일 것 같아요. 완전 강추!!!

Rather difficult to locate if this is your first time in istanbul.

Perfect location - 2 minutes away from the Galata Tower and within a short walk of both Istiklal Street and the Golden Horn. The uphill climb is arduous with heavy luggage, but that's the only downside. Small rooms, but nice and clean with ensuite bathrooms; rooftop terrace is awesome. Staff was very polite and professional, but with the exception of Furkan, didn't exude the same warmth as at other hostels I've stayed at... still, that's a very minor point. I would highly recommend this hostel.

Great location in Beyoglu, really close to Iskatel and all of the bars, shops etc. Most of the people there were older, which was good for us because we got away from the party hostels for a while. Good quiet stay, great facilities and en suite.

What a Hostel! The hosts were absolutely incredible and made the trip for us! 100% recommend Rapunzel.

All was perfect during our stay in Rapunzel hostel, which is perfectly situated, so close from Galata Tower, near from Tunel and Istiklal, but also very close from Karakoy and the bridge to go to Sultanahmet. The room, the terrace and the breakfast room are very clean. And over all, people working there were always helpfull and very smily, which is a great pleasure to stay in this kind of place.
