Friendly staff and good location - it is away from main Sultanahmet area so it is perfect if you want to avoid crowds of backpackers and noisy rooftop action. Is close to bazar area, ferries and Taksim is only a half hour walk away. Will stay there again.
Great location, friendly staff and general clean facilities. We stayed in a room on the fourth floor, which is not recommendable because of the heat and you need to climb four stairs. If you like to stay in a quiet area, it is adviseable to go somewhere else, at night you hear party music and they were doing reconstruction when we stayed there. Ahh, don't forget to spend time at the excellent roof terrace!
Staff is kind and friendly. Location is good and close to the main spots of the city. Security is excellent and the view from the rooftop is amazing.
Wonderful hostel, awesome staff, great rooms, close to Hodja Pasha Cultural Center and Eminonu Pier. Good times were had by all.
I felt like I was trapped in a Dave Matthews Band song while watching leagues of tiny ants go marching on and on near my bag in the mixed dormitory (no, I did not keep food in my bag, lulz). And as if the presence of ant militia was not enough, the ceiling of the shower was a shade of green. Lastly, the basement dormitory lacked any kind of deterrent to prevent someone from the street to walk in and steal the treasured ants. Despite this, the staff is great and the atmosphere was verysocial.
Second Home Hostel is located in the heart of the touristic Sultanahmet area, on a five minute walk to Topkapi, Blue Mosque and Haga Sophia. Rooms were clean, breakfast was okay, the staff was helpful and speaks English. Hostel is located at a somewhat noise street. If your prefer the night life and good restaurants over being close to touristic stuff, I would recomment to reside at the northern part of the golden horn in Beyoglu.
