Small & simple hostel in a very good area in Istanbul. The staff is really nice and the roof view is great. It's also clean and relatively quiet for Beyoglu. :)
Rapunzel is amazingly located in the down town of Istanbul, no better place to stay if you want to reach everything just walking. The staff all cheerish and helpful. One thing I've loved over all was the Turkish breakfast with cucumber, tomatoes, fresh cheese and olives... spontaneous and delicious. The place is run by artists that never invade the personal space of the guest. Bohemian, that's the point.

The rooftop is great to meet people, everyone was cool. Always easy to get back to because it's right by the Galata tower. You can see the sunset over golden horn. Staff are cool and helpful. Beds are clean. Stay here for sure, especially if you're solo.
The staff were so friendly and helpful. Every recommendation they made was perfect. The roof top has the most spectacular view and everything is within walking distancce. Loved our stay!
I stayed here for a week at the end of June. The owners are locals that can help you figure out what there is to do in Istanbul aside from the typical sights. The terrace has an amazing view of the golden horn, and is a great place to meet new people. There is someone at the front desk 24/7 to put your security concerns at ease, and the location is great for checking out the old city and the new. One of the best hostels I stayed in during my trip, and one I would book again if in Istanbul.
Very good location, comfortable, clean, big lockers, nice shower. Wifi was a bit spotty but got the job done. Overall very good!
