This place is on one of the sketchier streets of Taksim. It's busy and noisy 24/7. The hostel itself is safe; you must buzz to enter. It's also super clean, and there is a nice social atmosphere with lots of Erasmus students who are staying in Turkey for several months. I'd recommend this location if you're wanting to party and go out. I reckon you could make friends easily here, especially if you stay for multiple nights. But if you're not willing to rough it up a bit, it might not be for you.
This hostel is clean, cheap, and basic. The location is great as far as nearby attractions (Trafalgar Square, Piccadilly, Thames), although the area can get a bit dodgy at night; I wouldn't want to walk around drunk after midnight. Luckily the hostel has an outdoor and indoor lock and feels very secure. It isn't a very social atmosphere, and wifi can only be accessed downstairs in common areas. I would recommend if you want a good value for your money and a clean pair of sheets.
We liked this bed and breakfast a lot. It was basic, but it still had everything we needed. The rooms were very cute and quaint. We especially appreciated the breakfast in the morning, which was set up restaurant-style and was very personal.
