Door to room did not lock and lockers are too small to secure all belongings. Breakfast starting at 8.30 is really late. Individual bathrooms are not ideal, prefer a block style. Staff are friendly and remember you by name. View from bar is nice. Overall, a fairly average hostel.
Breakfast was lovely, served on the roof terrace and the staff took the time to talk you through the layout of Istanbul including things to do. The rooms are basic, with as many bunks squeezed in as possible. We had one plug socket between 6 people and a central light rather than individual ones. The only good thing was that lockers were provided under the beds.
This is without a doubt the nicest hostel I've ever stayed in. Great value for money, filling breakfast and they provided us with padlocks for the lockers. Staff could be more knowledgeable about the tours advertised in the hostel, when we asked one girl she had no idea they even existed. Overall, would recommend.
