Attentive staffs who helped us with tips of various types and spared no effort to ensure that our stay was memorable. Breakfast delicious and beautifully served, with a view that will take your breath away. Best location in Istanbul, few meters away from the Blue Mosque and the Haya Sofia and right next to the Grand Bazaar.

I stayed here on a recent trip to Turkey and was very impressed. After booking a night at a nearby hostel and refusing to stay there after visiting, I was very relieved and surprised to find such a great value for money hotel. Very clean, comfortable and staff for very friendly. Small but has everything you need. Breakfast is a standard turkish breakfast so don't expect bacon and eggs. The best part is the location and the awesome view from the top. Highly recommend

The breakfast was okay, I have had better but I have had worse. The room was very clean. Would not have stayed had we realized there was no elevator as one person in the group had a problem with walking. May need to put that fact in BOLD LETTERS on your website.

The doble rooms shared bathroom don't have air conditioning and the windows face to a patio where all the air conditioning extractors are placed. So all you get is really hot air blown straight into your room. Difficult to sleep! Is not a hostel just a hotel with cheaper rooms. The good thing about it was its location!!

This hostel is located in a good location near lots of sights and restaurants. It's exactly what you would expect. Rooms are clean and the staff are nice. Good value for the money.

The manager ripped off me! i reserved it for a few days and finally i stayed only one night and he extracts money from my credit card, that's not very fair play for him.

The reception area is rather small and one is not sure where to get help when needed.

Main complaints are that for the first night we didn't get an en-suite bathroom even though we booked it, and the room we got was super small and had a view into the next-door room, and second, that the price you pay via hostelworld is substantially above the list price. Other than that, given location and price, it was good value for money.

Very small room for double, get to improve the breakfast, and the bathroom also small, no elevator so you have to climb with big luggage to 4th floor

Front desk staff were very sweet. A basic hotel, well kept, right on the main street for Sultanahmet (area with the major sites - Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia). For a short stay with the aim of hitting all the major sites, this is a good economical choice.

The location is amazing. The view from the dining room is exqusite and absolutely incredible overlooking the Blue Mosque. The staff is kind. The rooms are quite small and they smell a little odd. Still, for this price this is a very nice place to stay primarily because of the location.

Very good value for money. We booked a standard double room (ensuite) and did not regret. The room was small, but it wasn´t a problem for us - we spent most of the day outside. Breakfast is simple, but good. Definitely, the best thing about this hotel is the location. We could see the Blue Mosque from the 4th floor (where breakfast was served) and it was close to all attractions. I highly recommend it!

The localization it's excelent, the only thing neggative it's the space in the room, that it's small. And the breakfeast don't have a lot of variety.

The location is wonderful, not only close to the biggest sites but well connected with the tram. Official information center is just across the street. Great breakfast with an amazing view. Although one bathroom and one toilet on one floor could be a problem but I did not experience any. Some facilities are a bit old but not unclean.

This location was amazing for having access to the main sights in Istanbul-- you really can't get any better. Just know that that means you're in prime tourist area during the busy season. I was happy that I stayed here while I was sightseeing, but also that I stayed near Taksim Square for a couple of nights (which was less convenient for sightseeing, but is where you want to be at night). Also, the staff were really friendly and helpful!

the location is AMAZING! by far the best location in Istanbul. The staff were very helpful and nice, you could really tell they were trying to help. We got a room for 4 people which was very small, but other than that, I'd totally recommend this place for people who want good location and value for money and not going to spend too much time in the room.

The #1 reason to stay here is LOCATION. The rooms are very small, a bit worn, and ours had a broken drawer and towel rack. But, the staff was helpful, the breakfast room looks directly at the Blue Mosque, and out the front door are most of Sultanahmet's major sites, and the tram line to the rest. In a big city it can be hard to find a decent hotel (not a hostel) on a budget. As long as you aren't planning on staying much in your room, this place will do fine and can't be beat for convenience.
