I have to complain that the second floor's toilets and bathrooms are in a mess. The lights turn off every 15seconds sometimes even don't light again. The lock of the door sucks that you have to pull it with all your effort. But the room space is quite large. And the beddings, free breakfast and cheap lunch(10TL) are not bad. Location is great as well

The hostel is situated in the heart of the Istanbul's movida, at walking distance from the old town, restaurants, clubs and pubs. The personnel are very professional and kind. The structure is pretty good, kept clean around the clock and regularly maintained. Breakfast is included and is possible to have lunch for 10 turkish liras, around 4 euros. Moreover, from the top floor there is an amazing view of the Bosfor and the old town. Definitely a place to choose.

Dirty bathrooms, might be a good idea to invest a little time and money so it doesn't feel so broken and dirty. --- or clean it more often. I DONT KNOW, but it was a memory. The beds are noisy metal - not so fun to annoy others....maybe an upgrade? Something good was that the breakfast was included. Thanks for that.

World House Istanbul is awesome. It's in a great neighbourhood (Galata), the staff were super helpful and chill. The hostel itself was comfortable and clean and the breakfast was pretty solid as well. When I go back to Istanbul this place will be 1st on my list!

I came from Dubai for a two day stay in Istanbul and I wanted to attend a concert. The tickets were sold out but on the day, Denniz from the front desk went with me to the venue door and helped me get a ticket! :) I was sooo happy to be able to attend it! Thank you so much and i am definitely reccomending the Hostel to my friends visiting the city!

This hostel was really great. Very centrally located and a great place to meet other travelers. Very close to the night life and on one of the most active streets in Istanbul.

I only stayed for three nights but absolutely enjoyed it. The location is the best of all. Right next to Galata Tower, 15 minutes walking distance to the New Mosque through Galata bridge, next to Istiqla and all the hustle and bustle of a city centre. Staff are all very friendly and helpful in terms of sorting out any needs of the travelers and giving out tips. People who stayed there all seem reasonable quiet and bubbly. A superb place to stay. Would like to stay there longer next time.

Good hostel, close to restaurants and shops and with easy access to the main attractions of Istanbul. You can reach anything walking or, if you want, you can take the tram down the road. The breakfast they offer is very simple, but enough. Had some problem with the shower though…water sometimes got suddenly cold or very hot. Its also a bit noisy if you are on the first room (n. 13) after the door that opens to the rooms. After all, would stay here again.

The hostel is clean, staff is friendly, located in an excellent location. Especially Deniz has been extra helpful. He is also the person to know if you want to pub crawl. Ended up staying much longer than expected.

Top location in Beyoglu, really near the bridge to the old Istanbul as well, good atmosphere and really nice lounge living room & coffee bar. The dorms and bathrooms are aways clean. Also, the hostel is near the clubs and nightlife in the city. The staff is very nice and helpful, recommended hostel in Istanbul!

Fantastic location, beds were CLEAN (sheets and pillows smelled great!) and so were bathrooms (cleaned multiple times a day). Breakfast was of excellent quality, with fresh bread being brought in from local shops everyday, and eggs hardboiled every morning. Location was prime; centrally located to all the hotspots in Istanbul. Where this hostel really stands out is the staff though.. special shout out to GAYE. She is a rockstar.. made my stay at the hostel great, and the rest of turkey excellent
