very close to the intercity bus station, great food served at their restaurant, balcony overlooking the river, clean, giant beds in the dorms, they provide towel.
very conviniente location, steps away from the metro station. the family that runs the hostel could not be sweeter; they are all very kind and helpful. room was clean, hot water all the time in the bathroom, nice view. we booked a private room with shared bathroom and got an upgrade to a private room with our own bathroom. the hostel is actually an apartment in a big building complex but the athmosphere is quite nice. would definitely recommend it.
GREAT LOCATION (very short walk to the beach and town, port, bus stop), GREAT PLACE (the 4 people dorm is actually a little 2 bedroom apartment w/ ac and bathroom, kitchen and a balcony!!), GREAT STAFF (everyone is kind and helpful and jimmy is the most cheerful person is the whole world!). Highly recommended! I originally booked 3 nights but ended up staying over 10 - enough said :)
I would NOT stay here again. it might be an ok place if you're planning on getting (really) wasted every night and passing out on your bed that does have a piece of foam instead of a matress in your dorm that is actually a cube with no windows and no ac. bathrooms and showers are dirty. to get wifi you're asked to buy something at their bar - and it works very poorly. staff seems too busy to be friendly; they answer your questions to get rid of you asap. nice thing is they offer free transfer.
perfect location, short walking distance to all old city attractions and steps away from the sultanahmet tram stop. friendly and very helpful staff. ac and locker in the dorm, double plug to every bed, and (basic) breakfast included. downs: it gets really noise at night because of the bars on the street; lots of mosquitos in the room; although the bathroom was well cleaned daily the drain stunk really bad.
AVOID this place!! besides the convenient location everything else is awful!! Outdated and disgusting room, bathroom and shower. I booked a single room but when I arrived a member of staff told me the hostel was full and offered me a bed they put - believe it or not - inside a tiny office!!! I ended up in a dorm - with roaches!!
great atmosphere, great friendly staff, great food, great location. hard to beat bayrams awesome vibe! highly reccomend it!!
great hostel, but NO AC in the rooms!!
nice hostel and breakfast, but very poor wifi - no wifi at all almost all the time. it really needs to be improved.
good location, good wifi. great breakfast, good value for the money. desk staff however, as UNfriendly and UNhelpful as it can get.
AWFUL hostel! worst one i ever stayed at. very old building, a lot of stairs. showers are in the basement, it's a labyrinth to get there and they suck (kinda high school gym and not clean). not enough plugs either in the room (only two in a room for 6 people!) and the common area, so people are constantly struggling to charge their stuff. wifi is horrible, almost inexistent. very basic breakfast. except for one girl the staff is not friendly nor helpful. only good side: it's close to a metro.
i've been travelling around europe for over 2 months so far and found the most amazing staff here. very friendly, helpfull... they know pretty much everybody by their names. they are unique
i did not stay at this place because after i payed the booking fee they emailed me requiring full payment through their website before i arrived. i found that absolutely strange and went to somewhere else.

very far from everything
it's not a hostel, it's actually a family's apartment with a bunch of people in it and 2 bathrooms and ONE shower
