Great location, very helpful and friendly staff! The only problem was the Wifi, which barely worked.
this place was great, the showers were clean. the breakfast was fantastic. the staff were super helpful. I mailed some post cards hopefully they get to their destinaton! haha. I would stay here again. really close to a lot of restaurants, stores, cafes.
This hostel is great! Great location, the rooms are spacious, the beds are comfortable, the toilets and showers are clean, breakfast is tasty, and the atmosphere is fun! Staff is really nice too and they play awesome music in the common room. Thank you!
Amazing place! I love how they have combined the cafe with the hostel. Huge portion of lunch for 3 euro is not bad and with free breakfast it is definitely worth staying.
Staff were outstanding at helping me with my girlfriends lost phone they went way out of there way to email another guest and to get me in contact with them. They were able to track it down and I am so thankful for their assistance. The location of the hostel was close to a lot of the attractions in Istanbul which is handy. The breakfast was delicious as well.
Hostel is located next to Galata tower, Stuffs are very helpful and friendly. You will be able to go anywhere by foot. Room is fine. Only concern is wifi connection is pretty weak in the room.
great hostel. met lots of good people there! the staff were always helpful and kind. location is great (if you trying to find it ask for directions to Galata tower; its around the corner and everyone seems to know where that is). the free breakfast is actually pretty substantial and the inexpensive lunch is also a good value.
It's brilliant service, according to customers' needs, nice environment and friendly staff. Very good experience.

Five friends and I stayed at World Hostel Istanbul for just two nights but had a wonderful time! The location could not be better and the coffee shop in the front has delicious everything. The pub crawl included some really fun bars and one of the staff, Deniz, even walked some of us back to make sure we were safe. I'd definitely recommend!
Location is great, staff helpful, easy to meet people on the pub crawl!

This was the perfect place for us!! The location made it possible to walk every where we wanted without finishing the day runout. The staff is wonderful, smily and very helpful. It's an amazing hostel in an amazing city.
I enjoyed my stay very much. As always, the bathrooms could use a little more space and better drainage in the floors. The staff was incredibly friendly and the breakfast room was lovely.
My experience at World House Hostel was to date the best I've had at any hostel in my time overseas without a seconds doubt in my mind. The staff there (in particular Burak - an absolute legend; be sure to say hello) are phenomenal and extremely helpful in any request you may have and willing to assist you in any information you need and to take you out for a great night on the regular pub crawls. The hostel is always clean and tidy and highly inviting at any hour of the day. Highly recommended.
Quality hostel in one of the best locations in Istanbul!! Staff went out of their way to ensure that we had a great time and got the best out of our Istanbul trip. Burak was awesome, he really knows the area, ans seemingly every bar and person in it, he showed us a great time at a local jaz club! Good value for money, clean beds airconditioned rooms and a decent Turkish breakfast.
The staff were great. They helped if you had any questions. This hostel also has a pub crawl Monday Wednesday Friday's & Saturday's. The only downsides to the hostel is that my bed wasn't clean when I got there. Their were stains on my pillow. The other downside is that there is only 1 bathroom owe floor. They clean it constantly but it is still pretty scuzzy
Great location and breakfast in this hostel. Staff are friendly and helpful. Nothing is a problem. We slept in room 17 ( top of building) and music from next door was pretty bad on a few nights and we struggled to sleep. Otherwise a great hostel.
a great place to relax after or trip or start your trip from ,everything is good about it its easy to get to by metro from ataturk airport ,the staff are amazing specially dunya felis and burak, they will help you with everything you need and answer all of your questions , the cafe they have serves great turkish coffee , i visited it 2 times and will go there again for sure if i go to Istanbul,

I was sick during my stay and the staff were very helpful towards me, helping me find a chemist and giving me tea. It's never nice to be sick but especially when you're out of your home and by yourself. They made me feel that little bit better and it was comforting to know someone cared! The only problem was there was a mix up with my airport shuttle - they forgot to ask and I forgot to clarify which airport I needed to go to! Slight miscommunication (or lack of) on bit hour behalves
The world house hostel was perfect! Location, facilities, staff, atmosphere and fellow travellers have been just perfect. We stayed their twice while travelling Turkey and will definitely stay there again when going back to Turkey.
