The best thing about the hostel was its location which was perfect for me. Close to a lot of great areas. However, the wifi was terrible and often didn't work at all, the beds were super loud and not so comfy, and the staff were not particularly friendly or helpful. The common area and coffee shop were nice to hang out and pretty good for meeting other people.

Had a great experience, and the staff were quirky, helpful and friendly. The only downside is that they recommended a 70Euro day tour with "She Tour" company that was NOT worth it. We felt like we wasted a whole day and a lot of money. Also, if you do choose this hostel, the pub crawl is a MUST!

Great hostel, great staff, great location, nice places around to eat, shop, have coffee or tea, walk around. The view from the dorm was beautiful, you can see Galata tower. The breakfast is really good and complete, so good to have fresh and healthy food while travelling. I booked only for three nights and ended up staying a whole week!

The best part about this hostel was the location. It was right in the middle of the nightlife. Also pub crawls were nicely organized which was a forum to meet other hostel people. Bathrooms were small but clean and always vacant. Overall I had an amazing experience and I d definitely stay there again.

Great location. Free breakfast is nice as is the coffee shop at the front. WiFi was a bit average. Because it was quiet, things like the pub crawl was cancelled.

Really quite a dead hostel atmosphere wise, compared to what I was expecting. In a good position for sightseeing however.

This hostel was right in the action of Istanbuls old town - close walk to grand bazaar, blue mosque etc. Heaps of restaurants and bars nearby, can also walk to other tourist attractions or catch a nearby tram to the Asian side of Istanbul easy. The hostel staff were all friendly and went above & beyond to find us a room very last minute after other accommodation fell through. Good night life in the hostel bar too, so a bit noisy but just bring some ear plugs :) Really enjoyed our stay!!

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.

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!

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.
