Helpful and easygoing stuff. Nice interior and great terrace, must be perfect during summertime.

Seyyah hostel is a great hostel to stay, especially if you're on a tight budget. Our room was spacious, heated, quiet and clean. We had clean towels every two days. The staff was really helpful and suggested lots of places to see. Also, Istiklal street (one of the busiest pedestrian streets) is 5 minutes away and Taksim square is 10 minutes away. Location wise it's great. I will definitely return there next year!!

The bathroom with toilet and shower is in the room. 1 bathroom for 6 people. Takes some time when everyone gets up at the same time, and it was quite loud. When someone takes a shower late/early and you sleep you'll most likely wake up.

I only booked one night in Seyyah Hostel but I ended up staying there for a week - no regrets! The hostel is very nice, centrally located & the staff are nice. When I stayed there I was preparing for a longer stay here in Istanbul and they were very helpful to me, helped me to look up some stuff, had some recommendations, etc. The dorm rooms are big enough, clean and they provide towels and linens and the double rooms are more like hotels really. I would definetely recommend it to everyone!

Excelent and nice staff, available all the time. And acept credit cards. The room and services were always clean. I definitely recomend it. Cons: It doesn't have a social room to meet others travellers, and the wifi signal could be better in the room were I was.

i stayed in Seyyah Hostel while my staying in istanbul, the stuff was really kind and helpful, the room we had was clean and compfotable, the location is great only 6 minuts from isteklal and 3 minuts from hard rock cafe. it is a real great value for the money, the only problem was that the safe was broken, so we had to carry our money with us every where.

Nice people working here but the building we were staying in was about one block away and there was no wifi. We also had to walk up 5 flights of stairs to get to our room with automatic lights that did not always work, so it was pitch black while trying to walk down sometimes. We were told we could use wifi in another building (another 3 flights of stairs) but it wasn't always working either. And although this hostel is very hard to find (no signs), DO NOT TAKE A TAXI from Taksim, huge ripoff!!!

The hostel is new and nearby Talabarsi, a part of the city that is unsafe for tourists and strangers. Located at a noisy street, so noisy, you also can hear it when the window ist closed, you need to sleep while air condition is working, what I dislike. Otherwise rooms are small and and there is also just a small common space and kitchen. Nice to have: each room has it´s own bathroom, mine (6 bed mixed dorm) with balkony, there is a terrace to hang around, free wifi, stuff super friendly :-)

I thought the hostel was clean, comfortable, and relaxing, but there wasn't much communal atmosphere as the community room is awkwardly located. The de facto hangout spot ends up being the small front desk room with the staff which are very friendly, but the space is small and not ideal. Its a nice hostel, but not the best for meeting other people. If you don't mind then its very nice. It has a very chic/ikea feel.

Nice and clean ensuite room. Comfortable beds and free towels. Good location, just a few minutes walking from central Istiklal Street. Best value for money.Guys who run the place are fantastic. All the information and best hospitality provided. Returning back definitely!

My dorm room was accidentally overbooked so I was given a private room. This operates basically as a boutique hotel. Not a lot of interaction amongst travelers, but a great, quiet, clean, convenient place to stay at a great value.

It was really hard to find and had to stop and ask around many times. Make sure you have very clear directions from the airport before you book. Also we paid for a suite with personal bathroom..however once the money was paid the guy informed us that the air conditioning was broken, and he gave us a tiny fan..it was nowhere near enough cooling to keep us cool..super nice guy though. Really helpful with directions and advice for getting around. Location is good, if you want the modern turkey.

Wonderful hostel. Clean, modern, comfortable, and air conditioned, which was a relief after a hot day. The small kitchen was simple, but effective; the rooftop terrace above the kitchen was great at night. The one small downside is the location. It's close to Istikal Street and Taksim Square, but still- getting to the hostel itself is difficult. Some better directions would go a long way.

Lovely hostel, great staff, clean and comfortable bedrooms and excellent bathrooms - looked more like a hotel than a hostel in some parts! Would definitely return here.
