If you are coming to Istanbul to chill and not party like crazy at Taksim this is THE place to be. On sunny days you can just walk by the sea and get your tea in a garden while looking at Hagia Sofia at the other side of the sea. The staff was amazingly helpful, the room was cozy and the garden was lovely. Breakfast is nice, though if you are staying longer you may feel like a bit of change:) Will come back for sure!

The security is quite poor and also the neighbourhood seemed rather sketchy. We stayed in the private deluxe room - definitely not worth the money especially in summer as there is only a small window which does not let enough air in. The owner was very helpful, but in general the hostel lacks any kind of atmosphere whatsoever.
