Loved it here! The staff was nice and helpful, the beds were comfy, and we even had a balcony in our room with a great view. Location is perfect for seeing the city on foot, and there are lots of great restaurants and bars in the neighborhood. I would definitely go back!


Had a fantastic stay at World House Hostel - super friendly staff, nice rooms, clean bathrooms. There's a great cafe downstairs and comfy sofas, and the location is great, right in the centre of modern Istanbul and near some fantastic nightlife. Thanks for a great stay!


This is the greatest hostel in all the land; good vibes, clean, secure, the whole shebang.

Best stay ever! Perfect location! Great staff, specially Deniz, always funny and helpful, specially with his pub-crawl event! On a serious note we had some back and forward changes going on with our booking and he managed it very professional without any hesitation and problems!!! Breakfast and Internet are included. And they kept it as clean as you can keep a hostel clean! It is definitely the Hostel to stay when visiting Istanbul!

Overall lower than expectations. Wifi had poor reception and was mainly only available on the first floor. Room was moderately clean and comfortable, but outside was quite noisy. Major downfall was only one bathroom per floor, so mornings could take a while.


Welcoming people and cheap prices. I had trouble receiving a concert ticket that I already booked, the manager of the hostel spent 15min on the phone with Biletix so that I could obtain it. And it worked!


Great Hostel in a top Location in Istanbul. Nice, mixed travelling crowd, clean and courteous, great place to meet people. Special thanks to Denis for helping me out with a room last minute!
