Great staff, good location, but the 8 bed dorm was so messy and the bathroom is filthy. The staff live in the room when it's not full and leave their stuff in there all the time. The girl who showed us to our room was completely drunk and did not give us a key, but when we saw one in the door we assumed it was ours. Nope! Not our key because you don't get one. The room is left open all the time and the lockers are not big enough for a bag so security is basically zero. Would never return.
Great hotel. Rooms are not fancy but the location is unbeatable--only a couple minutes' walk to the restaurant/bar/shopping area and less than 10 minutes to the bus station. Breakfast was delicious and the staff are so friendly and welcoming. Would happily return.
The rooms are small but clean with comfortable beds and an outlet in each bunk. Nice bathrooms--only drawback is that there was only one toilet and shower on our floor. Breakfast was better than average for a hostel and staff were helpful. Good location between Taksim Square and the Old City sights. Well-connected by public transport but we walked everywhere (10 minutes to Taksim, 20-25 minutes to the Spice Bazaar, around 40 to the Blue Mosque, Aya Sofya, etc). Would definitely return.
