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.
