The kitchen big and spacious had all you needed.Staff was friendly and we were even lucky enough to get an upgrade. was quiet due to time of year,is a really nice lodge.loads of space in kitchen and hang out area and free games in a room downstairs.Only down side really is the opening times to check in and leave ur stuff. you have to leave outside in locker if cold snowy or wet it is not good.empty rooms were left open an unlocked.and often no staff to ask questions. easy 10-15 min bus to town.
I highly recommend staying here.. this place is good. staff are friendly and great downstairs area to hang out and chill if you cant afford to go out.
Fantastic hostel. Very friendly and hospitable staff who really go out of their way to help you. I highly recommend this hostel for anyone visiting Istanbul. One of the best places ive stayed. showers are good, beds are good, bar is good. cheap and awesome. Cheers to cheers for a fantastic stay!
Character wast as great as expected. Nothing special.bathrooms only on 2nd and 3rd floor and no bath mats or privacy. Shower doors do not close properly! I had gum on my the head of my bed by the corner. The floor was crumby and dirty and dirty dishes everywhere. I was the only girl in a mixed dorm? Mixed boys and girls plural.With people that I think loved thre! Staff were more concerned about eating food than their guests. Not worth 20 euro I payed to stay. Also very noisy with the pub behind
Generators are pretty good hostels. I had a good stay. however our room was cold even with the heating on. and no bathmat on the shower floor makes it a bit slippery and dangerous. staff were a bit avefrage.. had one girl drop a few cans on the floor and just a bit clumsy and staff not overally friendly. but its a trusted hostel so despite the staff being sloppy wasnt too bad!
Great hostel. Excellent Rooms and excellent check in. Staff were great except one guy.. He was working Easter Friday morning doing check in and out and he was SLOW! People in the lobby for hours waiting. He was also rude. There should have been another staff member helping him. But he was slow and rude. I had to wait 15 mins after pushing myself to front of queue to ask and get my bag. Just lucky I wasn't in a hurry. What happened to the flamenco dance and show? Waited an noone turned up? sad :(
Good place to chill in the common room bar.. you spend a bit of time sitting there as you have to charge your phone/camera down there as no plugs in the room. They have breakfast lunch and dinner included and for anyone on a budget its great. good value for money. Not all staff were friendly despite being bored and not overally helpful and going out of their way to help.bar guy was annoyng changing songs halfway through and talking way to much.i saw a few bugs in the common area crawling around.
Cute little place to stay. Cute interior decor. A friend and I stayed and we were supposed to e in 10 bed dorm but got upgrsded to a private room which is nice. Very small room but comfortable enough.Beds are comfy as. Lovely staff too. I left my iPod behind and the staff notified me and posted it back to me. Highly recommended.
awesome place.. the bathrooms were great the rooms were big and spacious. cleaned once every couple of days by the looks but allgood. staff were awesome... spent quite a bit of time at receeption getting wifi codes chatting to staff, hello philliopinos!! you guys were aweosme and super friendly and helpful, and the awesome lady behind the bar (bad wiht names sorry) hello to you all! thanks so much for a fun time :) bar crawl was fun, until we left the bar haha. just stay in the bar!!!
best home away from home. I absolutely loved staying here. would stay again here in a heartbeat. Jonathon and Clifford are super friendly and helpful. I loved the free wine at nine. was great. Loved Florence and really want to go back. Beautiful city. He is helpful with the induction also. making sure your happy. oh and the 1 euro breakfast defo worth it!!!!!!
Only one bathroom to share. cause of the lock out noone seemed to hang out in the hostel and meet, except for rooms when everyone was going to bed. the staff were friendly. and the location is excellent. I would stay here again even despite lack of bathrooms and the lock out.. just a shame there was noone around in the hostel to meet properly except at bed time. didn't have an age limit either.. some 40 year old woman staying in our room? little strange and annoying.
the guy checking me in was great, friendly and helpful. I was only here one night. rooms are spacious and so is bathroom. was good. location wasnt too bad, although it says 50m from some metro stop (forgot which one) and i walked 50m in every directon and couldnt find it..should say what exit to come out of. noone seemed to be hanging about.. not a lot to do there. very small sign out the front and hard to see. make a clear sign please.

The room was VERY VERY hot and stuffy, the window hadn't been opened at all for wht felt like forever. opened the window to get some air in and it was okay, room gets warm quite quickly especially wen the shwoer is running. Room is very small, and you have no space to move and can only fit 2 large suitcases. Bed was okay and it has curtains for privacy.. bath was okayish.. but no bath mat? floor gets wet quickly and slippery. Bit of mould and a smell there. If I had to, I would sty again just.
Places was dirty.. the room and bathrooms were untidy some putrid smell in the bathroom as well.. YUCK! couldnt breathe.. i made a mistake with my booking and emailed them on their he t and no response turned up an they had given my room to someone esle.. thank god they didnt charge me for it. and thank god they did, went to a better hostel just a few mins walk up the road. had to wait aaageees to check in also. sat in the waitinf room for 2 hours waiting. dont stay here. oh and stairs.. ALOT!
When I checked in, I had a few questions for the receptionist.. she was very reluctant to help me.. and seemed in a hurry to get rid of me.. nd there was no else waiting.Went to reception a few times to leave bags, pick up bags etc.. was often unattended.Very good value for money..room is lovely.. however was rather cold..and was no heating. Bathroom shred between 14 people..got wet very quickly and there was bath towel for the floor of the bathroom which got gross quite quickly!GREAT FACILITIES
Great place.The guy that checked me in was super helpful. Booked me on a trip and everyrhing. Location is good but a little hard to find directions nt that grwat. They did my laundry for a fee but didnt make sure it was all dry before dumping in basket an it was just dumped after being in dryer didnt have to be foldwd but nicly and nt Crinkled with dry jeans wuda been nice. Great common atea evrryone friendly good vibe. I ws in female dorm woke up at 8am with sum guy in one of the bed??
Very nice staff super friendly czech guy and and canadian on front desk. Very helpful. Cleanest almost hotel like hostel i stayed in. Still has hostel feel tho. Bar downstairs. Close and convienent to everything. Be staying here again when i cum bk
I felt like I was staying in a hospital look like it cud have been. Despite having cleaners around regulary wasn't very clean. When I checked some maintenance guys Knocked waited a second and walked in to check something?? Cusnt this have ben done earlier or waited.also nxt morning noticed them knocking on people's doors at 9am just to give them a lamp?? Reception on 3rd floor not very clear. Elevator very slow. Lady checked me on asked me to fill form walked away older guy was very friendly.
Was in a very good location. A little far from train/metro stop but not too bad. The lounge/bar area on the first floor is prety cool, great environment. was relly clean. beds have like this shade type wall thng around the head of ur bed, giving u some privacy and u get 2 wall plugs to charge ur things. the boxes under the bed o lock things away were grea but u had to pull it all out to get ur stuff kinda annoying. great location, clean tdy and helpful staff.
It's called meninger cry centre but it's not in the city centre. It was very clean and tidy. Strange that 2 single beds were pushed together to make a queen for 2 strangers sleeping next to each other. Area doesn't feel overally safe for 2 females. Staff were friendly anfmd helpful and breakfast was pretty good.
Great place to stay highly recommend. Staff are fantastic and just awesome. Great price great location.will be staying here next time I visit. Only big downside is the stairs to room very steep. But it adds character good for a laugh carrying things up or down too. Thanks for a great but short stay here dirty nellys. Us 2 kiwis will b seeing you soon.
The rooms where always nice and clean. So they shud be for locking u out between 11 and 3. Pretty silly really. Quite Close to train station and metro that gets you around Paris. Free computers and wifi. Breakfast Isn't Bad but it shud be available till ten or eleven rather than just. 9.30 for those wanting a sleep in.
