Very welcoming staff, greeted with tea and they went through the surrounding area and what we should see. Also they staff the front desk 24/7 so whenever you have a question or need to get a taxi, someone is there to help. Would definitely come back here.

The location is great, less than 5 minutes from Gulhane tram station, and all the attractions and important places to visit are still within the walking distance. The hostel staff are nice and friendly and they will answer all your queries even before you arrived there. They let us stay in the same room (private room) rather than the dorm with the same price. In total I stayed there for 6 nights.The room a bit too small and there were not enough locker for dorm room and small too.


There were ants all over our room.
