Cheers is the best hostel I have stayed in yet! The staff really cares about everyone who stays there and is more than willing to help in any way possible. The building is clean, cozy, and the beds are comfortable. The bar at the top of the hostel is fun and makes the hostel a social place. I made many friends there and had a blast going out with them and the staff. Thanks for an excellent stay in Istanbul Cheer staff!
The Green Tortoise is awesome! The staff will help you get the most out of your stay in the bay and they really care about the hostel community. The common room is a great space and free breakfast is always a plus. They seem like a great place for international travelers to stay because they have their own computers for internet use (not sure if free or not). The location is great for night life! Keep on doing what you're doing Green Tortoise people :)
Amsterdam hostel is very nice! The private rooms also have their own bathrooms and everything was very clean. The staff was nice but nothing special. It has a great location near lots of good restaurants and cafes. You can easily walk to Fisherman's Wharf and Lumbard St! They have free pancake breakfast in the am too. Cute place and good price for what you get!
