Great experience overall! They have all the bases covered...from hooks and individual lights for each bed, to lockers, great showers and a decent breakfast. What separates them was the staff. This can make or break a place for me. The entire group of guys running the show are awesome! Helpful, knowledgeable (not just about the city, either) and willing to do whatever it takes to make your trip a great one. Thanks to the entire staff at Umbrella!
We had an excellent stay at this hostel for six nights. It was a mix of hotel-like cleanliness and comfort and the social atmosphere of a hostel. Fevzi and Melih were very hospitable and they gave us some great tips about the city. The breakfast was also very good and included in the modest price for a night's stay. We definitely recommend this hostel for anyone wanting to visit Istanbul.
The hostel is great...clean, comfortable and a decent social room. It doesn't have the classic or old charm of some others but it is nearly brand new by the feel and we enjoyed our stay. All the staff were very very friendly. And you gotta love a hot shower!
Loved the hostel. It was a great place to hang out and get to know people. Thanks!

Hostelworld indicates breakfast included...if it is seasonal, then it would make sense to spell this out.
