Arch-Ist Hostel

Istanbul, Turkey

Great location, very clean, friendly and helpful staff. I had a problem with my locker but they fixed it and gave me a refund on the lock!


The pros are a 24 hr reception and food in the morning, even if it's only cereal, milk, toast, jam and peanut butter. The location was good. It was literally next door to the Edgware Rd tube stop on the Bakerloo line. The cons are tiny showers that you cannot move in and an extremely loud pub downstairs, especially on Saturday night. Key cards to the rooms don't always work so people leave the door open which can be a security risk. They have a CCTV watched luggage storage though.
