Good hostel in a vert central location. It might be a little difficult to find because it's "hidden" on a street. Good staff and breakfast. Great terrace.

Location is simply perfect, right in the most happening part of Istanbul and touristy attraction can be easily accessed walking (~30 min) or by tram/metro. Engin, the owner, will give you great tips for local cheap and delicious food, narguiles, good party spots and great local rooftop bars (where even a guy can enter solo), etc Good place to meet other travelers

You need to take the metro or tram for go to the best places of estambul, but the buses from the airports leave you only 5 min walking from the hostel. The personal is very good, i am very happy with them. Relation quality price is ok! Taksim lounge is a very good hostel for people who wants to do tourism!

I love the days stay there. The atmosphere was excellent and I really like this hostel's style, feels like home and make people in there relaxed, and the staff were really nice too. The location is also good because it's located in the alleys around the Taksim square and there were many stores so you can always walk around.

Hostel is one street away from main street and has the friendliest and most helpful staff. One of them came with me to translate Turkish to English at customs (had a package stuck at the border), so clearly they go out of their way to make you feel safe and comfortable in Istanbul. The roof was great to hang out and drink on before starting the night. Clean sheets, hot showers, endless tea.

Really enjoyed our stay in Taksim Lounge which provided us with the perfect base to explore istanbul. Only slight negative was the smell from outside. Otherwise great location (close to public transport), good breakfast and extremely helpful and friendly staff. Would recommend highly to anyone who was visiting this great city

Awesome hostel!! My girlfriend and I stayed here for about 5 nights and were blown away by the fantastic double rooms, which were clean, modern and quite large. The staff are very friendly and gave us some great places to find cheap and scrumptious kebabs! Staying in taksim seems way superior to in the old town, as its happening all night around here (but not loud at all) and the vibe is excellent. All in all, we loved our stay in Istanbul because of our sweet accommodation and location!

Great hostel in a good location in New town, surrounded by nice bars and cafés. It's over an hour walk to old town and the main sites.. Staff were really helpful and friendly. Breakfast and rooftop terrace were great. Would definitely stay here again. No problems.

I wish I had found this hostel sooner while I was staying in Istanbul. This is what a hostel is supposed to be... the staff brings all the hostel goings together in a social atmosphere, takes them out and shows them a good time, etc. The owner/manager of the hostel is this totally sweet Australian guy who you absolutely need to go out with. He will make your Istanbul experience that much better. I wouldn't stay anywhere else the next time I'm in Istanbul.
