Route 39 is good hostel with friendly staff who will try to make your stay as comfortable as possible.. Like to thank Tasso's, Chris, Esad, Katherina, Evan and Rowen for their hospitality.. Will recommend this place to anybody who's on low budget ;)

Hostel was ok nice place near of Taksim Sqare and Bospurus Ferry and Metrostation. The Bathroom is smelling not nice.


Really friendly people!!! Near the metro station and supermarket (Carrefour and a local one). It was amazing stay there!!


Nice hostel, not far from the tramway and Taskim square. But showers can be improved as the door is transparent. The bed mattress are not really good.

I stayed there for three nights, especially location is great, it very close to tram. nice place, might stay there again.


Great hostel but kinda scary


this hostel is worth it for how cheap it is. the only issue is the staff. they are... helpful. but so weird. No one is a local so they know nothing, and they all hang out and drink and smoke in the roof top bar every night. The 'cleaning' is done daily but it doesn't make much difference, not that the place is filthy but it really could do with a major scrub down. good value but just has the weirdest vibe


It's a very good hostel. I have booked for a bed in a female dormitory but when i have go in, they didn't have a bed for me and because that they have give me a private room. It's was a very good room. And the place it's good, near the tramway!


Very nice roof top bar!

Staff is great


The location is good. Highly recommend for the ones who like to stay in the quiet area.


This was the last leg of our trip and we were disappointed to find the service was less than appealing. Staff were vague and didn't seem approachable. Rooms were poor for money paid, sheets were dirty and bathroom was a disaster. We were thankful to leave to be honest.


Very nice hostel. great owners and friendly staff. The location is great, close to main shopping streets and main attractions only a 2 minute tram ride. Right near the beach and there is also a roof terrace with a great view and atmosphere. I was sad to leave this place. The value for money is incredible.


Friendly and helpful staff and everything, but the place really looks like a dump. Considering they charge almost as much as they would do in London, the conditions are really bad.

Owner Comment (Hide)
Hi Istvan thank you for your comment and rating. Our only objection is that for 16 euros per person in a private room we should be a good value for money in every megalopolis of the world.


Nice and big rooms with everything you need, clean bathrooms and a roof terrace with an amazing view. Only minus is that you can't bring our own drinks to the terrace. The bar is pretty cheap though. Definitely recommendable.


Really easy to find from Findikli tram stop. The atmosphere and workers are great, always ready to help (even it is at 5a.m n the morning THANK YOU!). Breakfast and the top terrace are great! I would only highlight that showers could work better and that there isn't any plug in in the room where I was! But overall perfect!


The bathroom was really dirty when we were there. The blankets on our bed did not fit well and were old and stained.


its a lovely place to stay. You feel welcome in Istabul the second you enter this place and it gets better the longer you stay. :)
