It really has some great points as in being in the right price range, the amazing distance to the metro, all the basic room necessities covered and great staff helping out 24/7 so I can see this being used by backpackers with no problems. The only bad things with the hotel are a lack of elevator (Not fixable), no fridge or water in the room and the general state of the hotel passing the lobby.
This place is one of the best hostels we have ever been to, EVER. It has amazing private rooms, amazing staff and amazing everything, the terrace is HUGE and excellent when it comes to relax at any moment or when you want to meet people. You can buy beer and other beverages there. The only wierd thing about it is the entrance and first two floors, it's really cramped up and it looks like it doesn't have much of anything. Until you go up and find awesomeness.
The place is awesome for what you pay for, the rooms and bathrooms are great and the hotel in general is quite good. You actually have a pool and a bar right besides it, in the morning you get a decent real breakfast, the people working there are really responsive and professional but they cannot speak anything over really basic english and turkish. In our specific case, the hotel had no other people staying there but we know the place will start to get popular in no time!
This hostel is quite good, it's not the best, it's not the worse. Honestly, the staff makes the whole thing just great and there are real cats living in this hostel, that can be a dealbreaker.
I can't think of one single bad thing of this place, everything was awesome. Great people working there, great people, best location ever, the private dual rooms are a tad bit small but it really doesn't matter as you will just be crashing there, The common rooms are awesome, huge kitchen, and we extended our stay an extra day and upgraded our room as friends arrived soon after, we han an awesome adventure the second night. A warm thanks to Sam, Tere and the rest of the staff from Mexico!
We were denied access at arrival because we got to the hostel later than they were expecting, we weren't even dignified by the person in charge saying that in person. The place was a bit hard to find as it isn't really clear, but there are honestly better places to stay, I recon.
