Great location near Taksim square and Istanbul congress center, albeit a bit off the main tourist locations. Located in a small building on a quiet street, the hostel is cozy and offers comfortable rooms and nice Turkish breakfast. Very clean sheets and facilities. WiFi worked fine everywhere. Had to extend my stay and the staff was extremely helpful saving me some hours of wandering around Istanbul's hostels. Never worried about security. I definitely recommend this place!

The hostel is located down in a hill, so be prepared on your way back! Also, there is no elevator in Green House. Beside this, the location is very good, near Taksim Square, the tram and Havatas bus stop. Anna (staff) was very kind and helpfull. They let me take shower after check out to take my plane. Towel was TL3.


The rooms were small but functional and the staff were very kind, overall, if you plan to saty a couple of days in Istanbul on an economy budget this place is very good, however, it is a hostel so bring your own soap and shampoo and do not expect opulence, you will get a bed, a toilet and a shower, internet access and an a/c and all of these are in a very small room. Again, ideal for short stays.

Dear Guest, thank you for your review. Indeed you booked our economy room, In our offer you can find budget rooms but also bigger, with fancy design, from single to family rooms or apartment. As we are a hostel, we do offer a budget accomodation however you can use our offer for towel rental, buy soap or slippers. We also serve open buffet breakfast, which is included, free tea, cofee and water 24h. We hope to have another opportunity to host you.


The hostel is located in a noisy area. It's arguable if you can have a good sleep there. Well, based on my personal experience, I don't recommend there. I'm not sure how much they care about guest-happiness, maybe not so much.
