Things to Note

Please note that taxi drivers in Istanbul are notorious for ripping of tourists. Please dont take a taxi unless it is absolutely necessary. It takes 5 mins to get from the havatas bus drop off to the hostel and costs less then 10 lira. we constantly have guest telling us they were charged 40 lira or 40 euros or more. Taxi drivers will take your money then claim you never gave them anything so please dont use them. you can easily walk to the hostel in 10mins following the directions below. Use taxi at your own risk. dont tarnish your stay before it has started
