Really nice hostel! Well located and super staff! I would definitely come back;)


If you're looking for a place in the old town, this is a good option - close to everything and the guys are nice. Pro tip: take a cab from Ataturk rather than the shuttle, it'll be cheaper. Also, I would recommend only staying on the old town side for a couple of nights, and then switching to Beyoglu/Taksim side. It's much less touristy and there's a greater variety of restaurants and bars in the evenings (cheaper ones, too).


Staff was kind and easygoing. They always smiled towards us.Rooms were quite clear.

This place doesn't deserve the rating it has. It's frankly not a very good value. You can stay at far nicer places that have better breakfasts in better locations for the same price or cheaper.


Memo, the hotel manager is the man. Super laid back, helped us with everything that we needed.


A nice place to stay in Istanbul.
