Really dissapointed in this hostel. I can accept certain things about staying in a hostel but the attitude of the staff wasn't great. the room was ok, no more than that. not the cleanest. tv didn't work. would try to avoid staying there again to be honest.


I appreciate how Vanderbilt addresses the problem of doors closing loudly. In too many hostels, especially since the rooms are small and close together, the doors close/slam so loud your teeth rattle. I think addressing excessive noise is important to a quality experience, and I thank Vanderbilt for all they do this direction.


Very nice location , nice price and very clean place ... ( güzel mevkide , uygun fiyat ve çok temiz bir mekan ) tavsiye ederim

Cleaning staff were friendly and did an excellent job. The front desk staff, a young lady can't remember her name was very unprofessional and rude. There aren't that many jobs out there and we are sure you could probably get more professional staff that are friendly and welcoming. On a better note, the location is wonderful and the facility is clean. Probably could get softer mattresses, but would stay there again and recommend this place : )
