Great stay at the Bunk. I am in hostels all the time and this one is easily the cleanest one I have ever stayed at. Excellent, helpful staff as well. Thanks Mila for a great Pub-Crawl!

Mila is a bright and friendly host who provided plenty of information to me. It's about a 15 min walk from Taxism sq once you know where your going. V. clean and tidy. Rooms are tiny. I had only 2 people in a 4 bed but it could get cramped with too many backpacks. If your a solo traveler prob not the most sociable place. Although there is music played all the time (but great tunes). I had planned on staying longer but didn't want to be in the area due to getting caught in the protests.

Centrally located, Genuinely friendly and helpful staff, Rooms are a bit small than they actually look in the photos but then you get free linen and towels everyday.And the price is just about right to filter out the backpackkers and teenagers travelling on a low budget. Got to meet and socialise with wonderful bunch of mature yet fun people!

Great place to stay. In a safe side of Taksim and only a few minutes walk to istiklal street which has plenty to offer. Rooms are very clean and staff gave great recommendatios during my short stay. Definitely worth every Penny spent.

Nicest hostel I've stayed in anywhere in the world! Staff were very friendly and welcoming, dorm room and bathroom were very clean and very well equipped (each bunk had its own powerpoint and lamp) and the free breakfast was great. Highly recommended!!

This hostel was in the new part of town, which was good for us because we wouldn't have explored over that side if we weren't staying together. Very modern and new but tiny rooms. The staff bar one were very helpful. Was close to where the riots were going on but we didn't have any problems while there.

pros: comfort bed, helpful and friendly staff. cons: location...stay there if you are looking for night life and fashion shopping only. It is not convenience to getting to those historical site/ airport at Istanbul. The breakfast...basic jams and breads only. The shower at 1st floor is a joke.

Great place to stay. Stayed in the private ensuite, its is tiny, and the bathroom has glass doors/windows, not very private. Bed was comfy. The front door slammed all night though, loudly.

I chose to stay in a hostel instead of a hotel to meet other people but there was nothing put on to help make this happen. There was no mention of the hot tub advertised in the profile or on the website. When I asked for local recommendations for food etc I as told it was all good, not particularly helpful. And it's really difficult to get to, or so they make it seem - I was hard sold a taxi to/from the airport. It's okay, clean kinda pretty, but rooms are tiny and it's 15min walk to the metro.

Bunk was a great place to stay. Rooms are a bit small but the beds are great and everything is super clean. I think this is the cleanest hostel I've ever stayed in. Perfect location close to Takism.

The hostel was located in the heart of Istanbul. A very convenient location with walk distance from the city main places. The staff was very friendly, helpful and very knowlegdeable. They always had a great attitude with the guests.

#Bunk is one of the best hostels I've stayed at. It is very modern, and in a fantastic(!) location - away from the tourist area of the Old Town, but in the Taksim area near some amazing bars, great restaurants and many clubs. The staff in the hostel are really friendly and make you feel very welcome. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hostel to anyone.

This is a good hostel in a good location. However, my only complaint about the hostel is that it was EXTREMELY loud at night. The hostel itself and the surrounding bars in the area pumped music all night until around 6am. But if noise doesn't bother you at night I would recommend this hostel.

Very clean and modern hostel. Has the perfect distance to taxim, not too close and not too far, an easy 5 minute walk. Rooms were tiny but very clean and included all the essentials. Comfortable beds, lockers, lamps ect... Only stayed one night and left very early the next morning so missed out on breakfast (should be earlier for people who leave early). Wasnt the most social of hostels but has great potential. Would stay again!
