Great location in the heart of sultanahmet area on a busy restaurant street. Good facilities, quiet rooms and great common area/bar to relax in.
The staff were absolutely brilliant!! Location is perfect for easy access to the bazaars, blue mosque and hagia sophia. Bedrooms and bathrooms were very clean, good air conditioning too, and fantastic big brekky! Big shout out to tarik, samet and salim - great hosts who couldn't do enough to ensure you had fun, be it food, drinks, travel advice or just a talk :)
Staff very unhelpful. Seemed to not have much clue about what was going on. Only one key for the dorm rooms. Bathrooms and toilets could have been much cleaner. Location is close to all attractions and many restaurants.
Excellent on all accounts, could not ask for more. Istanbul is awesome
With least money I got my basic facilities needed, computer and internet access. I'm not a traveler that comfortable to carry my laptop all around the world which is risky. The room is standard for hostel, no significant different to others.
Location was great. The room was average, bathroom wasn't cleaned while we stayed there, the aircon didn't work properly either so pumped out warm air.
l was in very small room with 6 bads and without windows. You must be ready that you can get room like that one. Good thing is that you will not hear music and noise from restaurant, nice location and people.
A decent hostel, but the key system is a little annoying. There is only one key for the room which allows you to turn the lights on and when people leave they take the key back to the front desk. On occasion I would go to the washroom and return to a locked room and would have to go to the front desk. Also, there is only one sink for a floor, makes things a little busy at bedtime.
Only one key per room in dorms, air conditioning vent was leaking in room. Ok place but there appear to be better options in area
The guy from reception is a rude person, very friendly to girls but an not with guys. The 12 room looks like a consentration camp. No space at all, forget about privacy. The location is amazing and breakfast is very good

Great location, in the center of the Old Town. Great atmosphere with shisha bar, great for meeting people and partying till late. I would not recommend to people who prefer quiet places but I had a great time.
Unfortunately we got "upgraded" to a room on the top floor with o wifi access even though it is on all 4 other floors. There is no kitchen, however there is a great common lounge with Turkish lounges (though it gets a bit noisy at night because it becomes a bar and is the only communal area). The location is really good and you can walk to everything.
Very very noise at night due to music and screams from the pub downstair in the same hostel until 2:30am!
It was a brilliant budget hotel with a great restaurant downstairs in a vibrant location right next to everything important in the historical section of town. We loved it.
