Lemon tree was a great choice for my stay in Istanbul! Clean and modern rooms, excellent quality of beds-had a great sleep- and super friendly staff and owners, doing their best for your confort! In addition to that, it is located in one of most upcoming areas of the European side, 5min from Istiklal and 2minutes from the ferry to the Asian side, making it easy if you arrive from Sabiha airport!
While most of the staff, reception and housekeeping were really nice, one Spanish chick from reception treated me very bad on my check-out day, while I wanted to extend, just because I proposed that I pay fist and then I move my stuff to the new room: 'You are two hours late-I want you out of that building NOW' were some of her words-in a really aggressive way! I ended up not extending of course!! By the way, it was housekeeping who had authorized me to stay in the room 2 more hours...
Staying at the World House is the best option for any traveller who wants to experience Istanbul at its best:excellent location, clean rooms, really friendly and helpful stuff (especially Deniz, smart and funny guy) and a yummy breakfast, good to start the day! What more to ask!
Very kind staff! The rooms are clean, the bathrooms are excellent, however, the buildings needs some updating, since it is an old hotel that was turned into a hostel!
Most of the staff members were nice and helpful and were really doing their best, however the hostel facilities absolutely need upgrading, and cleaning has to be taken a lot more seriously (especially in bathrooms) The general stay was ok but for the value offered, could have been cheaper..
LoOoOoved that place!! Extremely friendly and helpful staff, absolutely clean and secure, great ambiance aaand... did i mention the free dinners?? Definitely the place to stay when in Budapest- I myself will surely be back!!
Spend three really comfortable nights in this hostel! I particularly enjoyed its design!
