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).

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.

I had a very nice stay here during my time in Istanbul. The staff was really helpfull and friendly. Rapunzel is located in Galata, the popular area near Taksim Square. There was also the nicest roofterrace!!

Awesome location. Close to Beyoglu, but also walkable to the Old Town across the bridge. Staff was awesome and gave me great recommendations for the rest of my trip through Turkey. Pretty quiet though, which can be good or bad depending on what you're looking for.

Great location near Galata tower and view from rooftop terrace. Friendly helpful staff available all the time. Good breakfast, air conditioned rooms and WiFi everywhere. Could do with a bigger kitchen and more power points.

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.
