It was cheap and the wifi was good. The location is convenient to all the historical sites and a few minutes walk away from the tram that takes you to Taksim etc. All the restaurants and bars nearby are touristy and overpriced, but if you are looking for a cheap place to stay in a good location, this hostel is sufficient.
This place has a great atmosphere and is much nicer than many other hostels at the same price. The location is really convenient but also quiet at night. The breakfast was awesome and the staff helpful and friendly. As a frequent visitor to Istanbul I have found my new favorite place to stay.
This hostel is in a great location, near Istiklal, but still relatively quiet. Half of the staff was really friendly and the other half was nice enough. Breakfast was unimpressive, but free and the tea was good.
