Second Home Hostel, Istanbul, Turkey
9.4
5th Aug 2013

Second Home Hostel is a great stay in the old part of Istanbul. It is a short walk (10 mins or less) to most of the sites you set out for in Old Town. It is located near lots of restaurants. The rooms are on the smaller side but clean and well equipped, and the rooftop terrace is really fantastic. But more than anything, the staff here go out of their way to make your stay incredible. Everybody there is an exceptional host and very friendly. They even cooked us an amazing dinner one night!

We enjoyed our time at Rooms Montalbano so much! Rovinj is an incredible city, and staying here in the middle of the stari grad was perfect. Franjo is a very laid back and accommodating host and we had zero problems while we were there. He even offered to find a spare room for us on the one night we were unable to book with them. The rooms themselves are basic, but very clean and comfortable. Bathroom no problems and also very clean. Definitely staying here again if we come back.

This hostel was a good deal overall for the money. The staff was VERY helpful with all of our questions. They were always slammed at the reception desk and still managed to help everybody quickly and patiently. The security was very good too, with a guard at the door at all times from the evening til morning. Guards were very friendly as well. Rooms and hallways had tight quarters and felt a bit cramped. The eight bed dorm room was pretty crowded with everyone in there. Not for the picky!

This hostel is clean and safe, but pretty far from anything most tourists want in Paris. The bar and the "parties" are more like something out of freshman year at college. Not a bad place to stay, especially for a short trip, but don't expect a whole lot of character from this place!!
