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.

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.

Buenas camas, aire acondicionado. Desventajas: gente que labura ahi son raros, no hay buena vibra, el espacio comun es un bar con musica fuerte todo el dia, la zona es buena para recorrer durante el dia, no para salir o comer de noche. Relacion calidad del cuarto con el precio es buena, no es bueno el resto del hostel. No hay cocina, la cerveza es cara, y el ambiente es raro.. Llegas y todo bien, pero despues de dos dias te das cuenta

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.

Great location, really close to all the must-see places in Istanbul, it's gets extremely hot in the rooms, the ac is more like a fan, but overall good place!

Muy buen hostal. Está dentro de un bar, entonces lo bueno es que se puede tomar ahí mismo. Lo malo es que no te dejan sentarte en las mesas si no consumes, o te presionan para que lo hagas. Eso no me gustó. Las piezas muy buenas, pero a veces la gente se acostaba muy temprano y era aburrido.. Si vas con amigos esta perfect, pero no lo recomiendo para ir sólo. El desayuno muy bueno, limpio y lo principal es que está en una buenísima ubicación. Lo recomiendo, volvería.

Good location and good facilities. Wifi was terrible though, never worked in my room and hardly ever loaded much. Another annoying thing was there was one key for the room, so whoever left last was supposed to leave the key at reception. If they didn't you couldn't get in the room, or most of the time everyone just left it unlocked.If someone took the key you couldn't use the aircon or electricity either.Bad system. Free breaky wasn't that great but okay. Staff were helpful. 6bed dorm was small

Excellent staff, very friendly and helpful. Great location, only a few min walk from the blue mosque and close to the tram line. we had a private room with bath room. The room was very small and struggled with floor space with our luggage. Very comfy beds! Wifi was terrible, wasn't able to get any signal in our room but was able to get it in the common areas.

A great hostel for hanging out and meeting new people. It had a bit too much of a party vibe for my taste but that might be just what many people are looking for.

A perfect place to stay whilst in Istanbul. The hostel was cleaned regularly, however I found the shower flooded each time, which was annoying.The ten bed dorm was a bit small & I found our fellow roomies to be very inconsiderate, making a good night sleep impossible! The staff were really friendly and happy to help organise things for you. The wifi worked well & the bar was a cool place to chill. The breakfast was great making the hostel excellent value & I would stay here again.
