Galata West

Istanbul, Turkey
94%

Best 2 aspects of Galata West hostel are: 1) location in Beyoglu (hip bars, cafes, restaurants), and 2) top floor roof terrace with its beautiful views, WiFi access is perfect for chilling out and meeting other travellers. There is a free basic breakfast from 8.30-9.30am, you have access to a fridge, and staff will give you a free Istanbul map. Staff are friendly, and you can walk down the hill to Sultanahmet (the old city) for sightseeing during the day, and walk back afterwards.


Hotel Ugur

Sanliurfa, Turkey
97%

Make no mistake, this is Urfa's best backpacker hotel. The location is central, the price is cheap, and this is where you'll meet other backpackers to do daytrips to Gobekli Tepe and Harran. There is a fridge you can use, filtered water for free, and AC (air conditioning) in each room. Mustafa the owner runs tours to Gobekli Tepe, Mt Nemrut and Harran. You can get to Harran by public transportation, but there is NO public transportation to Gobekli Tepe so you need someone to drive you!


Levanten Hostel

Istanbul, Turkey

Hostel is very close to Taksim Square, and Havas bus location to/from airport. Staff were very friendly. There is a small fridge where you can put a few things. There was only one shower on the floor I stayed on - so you may need to wait occasionally.

Very central location, helpful staff. There are 2 buildings. Other guests can be noisy coming in late but otherwise, it's a nice place to stay.

Hostel is a 15 minute walk to the Old Town but it is close to the best restaurant in town 'Lido' and supermarkets. Staff is friendly and helpful, and there is a decent sized ktichen and common room. Hostel is on one floor with 5-6 rooms. There is WiFi and a PC in the common room.

Ordered a deluxe flat, turned out to be right in the centre of downtown Budapest. Highly recommended! Clean, central, safe. Staff printed up our plane ticket confirmations for us, free of charge, and gave us tips on the city.


Apartment Blue Danube

Bratislava, Slovakia

Location of deluxe flats is right 2 short streets from the centre of the old town, regular flats are just down the street. Flat is modern and clean. No complaints. But we didn't realise that our 2 person flat was one bedroom with 2 single beds side by side.

Great location, clean, helpful staff and big common room with shared PC's but our 2 bed room was rather small. WiFi worked well.


Chillout Pera

Istanbul, Turkey

I stayed here twice during my trip to Turkey. The easiest way to get to the hostel from Taksim (if you arrive by airplane and take the Havatas bus to Taksim that is) is taking metro 1 stop from Taksim to Sishane. There are 3 exits to my knowledge. Do NOT take the Istiklal Caddesi exit, take either of the other ones and you will be 30 seconds walk from the hostel. The hostel location is central, there are lots of options for food, drinks, entertainment in the area around Istiklal Caddesi.

This hostel is new and it shows. Rooms are clean, spotless, and have a hotel feel. There is entertainment in the bar and the staff are helpful. Breakfast selection could be better but that's my only potential improvement. There are good cheap restaurants down the street, a small 'supermarket' shop across the street from the hostel, and a fruit seller on the corner. It's easy to find if you take the airport bus.

Hostel location is really good to visit nearby sites of Forbidden City, Tianamen Square, etc. The instructions to find the hostel from the subway stop are very easy. I went to the Great WAll Tour to Mutianyu. It's worth going on. Most people from the hostel choose this Great Wall Tour of the different ones offered. Staff are very helpful. If someone doesn't know the answer, just ask someone else the next time you pass by reception. The hostel is quite clean but it's not a brand new hostel


Crowded House

Eceabat, Turkey

Great hostel, 1 min walk from ferry station where buses drop you off and pick you up. They organise GAllipoli tours which leave 12.30 every day and return 18.00. There are other tours available which leave in the morning: snorkelling, Troy. Turkish breakfast is included in the price and it's good, worth waking up for. The hostel is clean, free WiFi everywhere, and the building itself is new. It was built 2 years ago. The staff are very friendly. Highly recommended.


Galata West

Great location close to Istiklal Caddesi and the Beyoglu area. Please take note of the new map posted on their site explaining how to get to their hostel. I meet 2 different couples that arrived in Istanbul late at night, and it took them a long time to find the hostel, in the dark. If you use their map, it'll be easy to find! Enjoy the 6th floor terrace, it's great!
