Absolutely loved staying at this hostel. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable and the hostel itself is very clean and social. If I had to nitpick, I would say the only things wrong are the fact that the WiFi doesn't reach the rooms, the kitchen does not allow for cooking, and the location makes for a steep climb to Taksim Square. Besides that though, this is a great choice for your stay in Istanbul.
