The Mystic is situated at Taksim in the Heart of the party and shopping area of Istanbul, a wery lively and fun place. The hostels got a bit of a hippie vibe to it, a wery relaxed and friendly atsmosphere. The staff is very helpfull and speak quite good English. The common room is where it all happens. There is a section for eating and relaxing by the kitchen and a section where you can hang out, smoke and drink beers. Be advised that it can be quite noisy.
A wery lovely place in city centre, very quiet, nice bar/balony at the rooftop. I spend three nights in a shared dorm, and it was wery nice, clean and the staff is very friendly and helpfull. Its not a party place, so its quite nice if youre like me, leaving Mexico City, to relaxe and do not a lot. The breakfast and dinner is not great, (only vegetatian) but its usually Ok. Do the volcano tour (amazing) and the Lucho Libre (Stupidly funny).
