A great little place centrally located in Istanbul, it's an easy walk to just about anything and the staff couldn't be nicer. They'll help with everything you need. Plus, the rooftop terrace is a huge bonus, and a great place to have a few beers as the sun goes down.

Good place tucked behind the Tower. Close to Taksim Square and short walk to the Tram station. The tram will take you directly for Sultanahmet

Great location near Galata tower with restaurants just around the corner. So easy to get to the tourist places in Sultanahmet from here. Free breakfast was great. Staff friendly. Cool roof top terrace to hang out on. Dorms and facilities clean.

The staff and location of the hostel were real standout features. The shared bathroom was a bit musky but all-in-all it was ok as everything worked, including the air-conditioner and the hot water. I arrived the last big night of the protests that were pushed from Taksim to the Galata Bridge and the staff couldn't have been more accommodating and friendly. No issues at all! Oh, and the rooftop deck was quite fantastic. Really a nice place to stay and the other guests were lots of fun!

Rapunzel is an amazing place to stay!! This is a fantastic location, with an awesome common room and rooftop patio. It is easy to get anywhere from their location. We were there during the Istanbul riots and they made us feel very safe and at home. They suggested awesome local restaurants and bars - Stay here.

I would have given these GREAT PEOPLE 100% but their cleaning lady did not clean our room every day, that's why a little bit lower score.

I arrived on my own, exhausted, and received a warm welcome and a helping hand. I'm probably older than the average guest here, but I didn't mind sharing a room with 5 others, the bathroom was clean and I had a nice hot shower. In the morning I was greeted my the lovely staff and a colourful display of plates with breakfast. I went to the roof top terrace and enjoyed the lovely view. The location is perfect, the building charming. I will recommend the Rapunzel to my children who are 21 and 19.

We stayed over Pentecost in Istanbul and the Hostel Rapunzel made our stay incredible. The rooftoop, the staff and the area around the Galata Tower are amazing. Loved the great music choice on the rooftoop and the lovely arranged breakfast in the mornings.

The Rapunzel is a great Hostel. It is very close to the Galatower, where a lot of bars abut. The staff was always helpful and very kind. The roof terasse is brialliant, you can watch across the Bosporus with a great view of the historicial area with all the mosques. I would recommend this hostel to a friend!

I liked the hostel, it had a nice rooftop terrace, a small dining room, and a small living room. The staff were nice, and the breakfast (cucumbers, tomatoes, olives, cheese, bread, cookies) was delicious. The location (near Galata tower) was also a big plus.
