Very central to most things, would highly recommend this place! The bar and restaurant below the hotel was great! Good place to meet people. Would have a completely different atmosphere in summer and I think it would be great!! Would stay again!

Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts about us. If you please let us know about the problems you had in our hostel (our staff's behaviors and the security issue) I would love to do something to improve weak sides of the hostel.

Good place to stay close to the important sightseeing spots in Istambul, the staff is very helpful and friendly. My only recommendation would be to add couple of courtains to the rooms because at least in mine during the early morning the light was waking me up earlier than expected.

The Sultan Hostel is excellent. The Sultan Hostel is localized in the best street of the Sultanahmed, closed to all mainly famous place that you should to visit! The Pub of the Hostel is so exciting, and no worry about the silence to sleep... The rooms are very nice! And everynight you will have a fun😀 Now i would like to pay attention about the staffs: everybody is ok, they are very friendly and hepfull. Mainly two of them: Gabriela Rivera and Mahsun Dargin are specially friendly, good staffs!

Great bar, cheap beds. Staff are super friendly and amazingly helpful. Wifi is great and works everywhere in the hostel. Less than 5 minutes walk to the Blue Mosque, and easy to get to from Ataturk airport on the train/tram. Only downsides: the rooms didn't get locked unless there was no one in them, and there were no lockers in the rooms (although there were lockers at reception, I think). Also there was only two showers and two toilets for the whole first floor, which meant they got busy!

Lovely breakfast, nice location. But it was — I would stress it — exceptionally noisy in the evenings, loud music almost as if we were in the club during the whole night made it impossible to rest. People from the room next to ours with a very vivid imagination screamed for the whole night because one of them has found a mosquito in their room. They were screaming, crying, cursing, slamming doors until 5 in the morning and very little was done about it. Couldn't get any sleep for three days.

All in all a good hostel. Good atmosphere in the restaurant area located in front of the hostel, friendly staff. Only 2 showers for the whole hostel but we never had to wait for the shower (afternoon). Not much space to keep your bags, no lockers in the room but small lockers available in reception area. Aircon was working and valuable during sleep. Would go there again, especially because of its location in a nice restaurant street.

A nice hostel with a bar and restaurant attached, on a street full of hostel/bar/restaurant combos. Can get a little loud in the evenings if you're sensitive to that sort of scene, but most of the rooms are towards the back of the hostel anyway. Toilet/shower facilities were reasonable, comfortable mattresses, good air-con, prime location, and friendly staff.

Had a great stay here! Was at sultan for four nights! The staff were super helpful and very friendly and we met many cool people there which was awesome! It is a 5 minute walk to the blue mosque and about 15 minutes to the bazaar. Lots of nice restaurants nearby and great atmosphere. Rooms were clean and bathroom was clean with good pressure shower. Would definitely recommend this hostel to any other travellers and would definitely come back.
