the hostel is very nice located in the center 5 minutes fromistiklal street..crew is very nice and very helpfull the room was very clean great place to stay in
ichose this hostel cos of many good reviews.,each good description in them is absolutely true! First of all, super-friendly and helpful staff, then cleanness of everything, comfortable beds, good atmosphere, excellent music playing whole day/night and of course a good location. If you travel alone, is just easy to get to know the other travellers during some relaxing time at the common room or at the cosy terrace.

The staff is extremely kind and helpful. I loved the location of the hostel because it was nearly impossible to not be able to find my way back if I got lost. All I had to do was look for the giant tower :) My only complaint is that it was kind of annoying and gross that we couldn't flush toilet paper. The lid of the trash can in the bathrooms doesn't open very much when using the foot lever. So a few times I had to open the can with my hands. I suggest larger trash cans that open better.
Very nice hostel in the best location! The staff was very nice and helpful and we even got a room upgrade for free. We regret to have stayed only one night and will definetly come back on our next Istanbul trip
Excellent and helpful staff. Furkan was great. Incredible location! In a city like this, especially if you like to party, 24 hour reception and free breakfast is key and Rapunzel has it. The rooms are very well sized and make for a comfortable stay. And the view from the roof is amazing! Don't wait til the last night to go up there like we did. Best hostel I've ever stayed in Istanbul, I think (out of 6).
Great location and terrace. Breakfast is good, place is well-run.
The staff were all wonderful!! I loved the location by the Galata Tower. It was much more laid back than Sultanahmet and still an easy walk to Taksim, the Galata Bridge, boats on the Bosporus and trams. The showers are hot. The beds are comfortable and clean and the breakfast is delicious. I loved this hostel.

A fantastic hostel. I really enjoyed my stay here for 3 nights. My room was very clean and comfortable with a/c and wifi. Staff were extremely helpful and the free breakfast although simple was very tasty. Location is near the impressive Galata Tower and offers stunning views of Istanbul from the roof terrace. Highly recommended.
