Had a great stay at Stray Cat, the kittens are cute & it's nice when there is someone performing in the evening. Wifi is good downstairs, but doesn't work up in the rooms.

Highly recommend staying here! Great communal area, easy to chat and hang out with fellow travellers and pet the resident cats & kittens! The cats are very social too! The rooms are clean & tidy, simple breakfast/tea/coffee provided is great. A little tricky to find as Istanbul street signage is unreliable at best, so just trust the directions given & go with the landmarks. Once you've got your bearings it's a really convenient location. Would definitely stay again!

First things first, you would not find warmer staff anywhere else. It really brings a genuine vibe to the place. I missed my flight to Istanbul and had to catch another flight in the next day. The staff was sympathetic of my plight and was not charged for the night that I wasn't present in the hostel. Stray Cat hostel does live up to its name and you would find many kitties here and outside on the streets. Although cleanliness of the place could be improved.

I booked two nights with Stray Cat hostel and that two nights became 20 days. Stray Cat Hostel is more than just a hostel, it's a place that I feel comfortable going back to. It's a place where there are people I can count on when I need help. It's a family-like "hostel" that the staffs would worry about me if I go back "home" late at night. It's a "hostel" that I would call to tell them that I arrived safely at the next destination. Thank you :)

I don't normally like hostels, but this place was excellent. The people I met here, staff and temporary residents alike, were friendly, interesting and just to be around. I was happy to return here every day because it felt quite homely. A+.

This place was fine (as long as you don't mind cats) but it was really really hot in the room and had no fan, and you can't open the windows because of the ultra conservative neighbors who can see in the room. The wifi was spotty at best. The staff was super nice and very helpful. I loved those kittens, too!
