I stayed there 3 nights with some friends in a mix dorm. Everything was perfect, clean, good breakfast (you can use the kitchen whenever you want). The personal is very kind and they are always trying to make you feel comfortable. We recomend it!!!

Booked a 6 beds female dorm and was transfered to a 4 beds one where actually only my mom and I stayed for all the 3 nights. Place is clean and staffs are friendly and helful. A bit hard to find in the first moment but following the directions they give u find it. Close to metro station and restaurante and small market

The room itself is comfortable, and the staff are really accommodating my needs too (luggage storage, city direction, etc.). The bed is really comfortable. Things that could be improved is to repair the spoiled air conditioner, especially during the hot summer, and to add more lighting inside the room. Wifi was great in the 3rd floor. Looking forward to stay at this hostel again,

It was very good. Don't be excited with breakfast though, the description is misleading - when you read cheese your should expect cream chesse and when you read ham you should expect nothing. The kitchen is good to be used , the bathroom inside the room is cleaned regurlarly. By the price you pay it is an excellent option. The location is good and staff is friendly and helpful.

Hello, thanks for commwent. however, I would like to correct something. We dont offer HAM but we offer JAM. I think you misread it by chance. In addition to this, you know here is Turkey and except bodrum is almost impossible to see pork products. As a result of this, we also dont offer and never offered HAM

Great stuff helped us with every question we asked Nice breakfast We were surprised with a location - pretty near the sightseeing (7 min walking) There was no problem with leaving our backpackers after leaving out and visiting kitchen

This is a no-frills hostel just a short walking distance from the main tourist area around Hagia Sophia. The staff are very friendly, and rooms and all facilities were always kept clean. There's a good kitchen downstairs with a common room and outside garden. The wifi is excellent, although you have to be downstairs near the antenna for best speeds. There's a good breakfast included, and plenty of reasonably cheap cafes and restaurants in the nearby streets. Overall, an excellent budget option.

The hostel is close to plenty of major sites but down a slightly obscure back street. Staff were friendly and helpful, facilities were good and place was tidy but the layout, with common rooms away from the entry, meant that it wasn't as social as some hostels.

Thank you for a wonderful stay. For your generosity especially on that first day when we arrived lost and wet from a rainy Istanbul. Thank you for making us feel so at home and for inviting us to join in your lovely lunch. Your kindness made our day! Istanbul is in our hearts and it was definitely partly becsuse of you, we will certainly be back. In Sofia now, and we already miss Istanbul. Good luck with everything! Georgia

It's a safe and tidy place, a little hard to find. Better follow the instructions given by the hostel or you might take some time to find the place. The neighbourhood isn't crowded at all. No comparison to Beyoğlu and the Taksim area or maybe Kadıköy at night. Nevertheless there are some small shops and restaurants around and the sights of the old city are really close. Our room was cleaned daily, breakfast was good. The staff was always friendly and helpfull. Definitly a good value for money!
