Good hostel, good people, good location.

- Sometimes when you are sitting in the toilet for a while or when you are bathing, the light goes out. Maybe the lighting system should set longer? - It would be great if there is any emergency plan when water is cut (by the Government) - Suggest to add a toaster during breakfast time In fact, the hostel is really really great, staff are very very great too. I would definitely recommend my friend to stay here

Great location, clean, greart staff, great breakfast, hot showers, clean bathrooms. Although there is a 24hs camera observation on the luggage room, personal lockers is highly preferable. The price was reasonable for Istanbul standards.

Good location, clean, with AC. Very nice and helpfull staff. However, there is only the minimum in the rooms and I find the activities and airport shuttle organized by the hostel way too expensive.

This hostel is amazing. They are extremely friendly. Deniz is very helpful, there's a guy with a pretty excellent mustache that makes good coffee and a very interesting lady with curly hair. The staff are happy to show you some real Turkish experiences and they will also have a beer with you, which means the guests are always in a good mood.

I spent just one night in this host, and the overall experience was very good. It's really well located, standing in the middle of the lively and scenic neighborhood of Galata, very close to Galata Tower. The atmosphere is ok. The staff is friendly and helpful. There is a cafe in the front and some tables in the back of the first floor. However, the social areas are kind of small, not favoring the integration of hosts. The rooms are ok. The breakfest is really good considering hostel standards.

World House was a great choice to stay at. Centrally located by all of the bars and restaurants for night life, and during the day, it was easily walkable to many of the cities main attractions such as the Blue Mosque and the Hagia Sophia. The staff was very friendly and the facility itself was very secure.

This hostel is located on one of the busiest tourist lanes in Istanbul and thus its location is 'good' if one wants to be in the midst of a constant stream of tourists, cars, taxis, and motorcycles that begins early and stays late. If the visitor is a young male or or female looking for constant partying, then this is the place for you. If one expects to be able to sleep before midnight now and then they should go elsewhere. If this location were quieter it would have a much higher rating.

Hostel World was an absolute pleasure to stay at. The staff was very helpful and enjoyable to be around. The location was one of the best parts. World House Hostel is in a very convenient area for exploring, eating,night life and public transportation. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The biggest plus here was Dennis.

Wonderful hostel in a great part of town. World House is walking distance to the Sultanahmet (Old City) but is located across the bridge in a safe, cosmopolitan part of town. The rooms are spacious, bed comfy enough, and there are big lockers for everyone. The bathroom was incredibly clean, and the breakfast (boiled eggs, bread, cucumber, tomatoes, cheese, fresh fruit, tea/coffee) was plentiful and delicious. Only downsides: could have more bathrooms and better curtains, but these are minor.
