We stayed at the hostel for one night only, so I couldn't see everything at the hostel. The hostel is conveniently located, 5-10 minutes on feet from the ferry and bus station. They have a nice common room and a kitchen. The bathroom/toilet is clean, but it is common at the floor and not inside the room, which is the only minus. However, given the close proximity to the airport bus terminus (lines E10, E11, SG1), the hostel is an excellent choice for those who have flights early in the morning.
This is my second stay in the hostel. It was recently renovated and rooms are according to regular hotel room standards. The hostel is located in the heart of Sultan Ahmet, which makes it perfect for tourists wanting to see the historical Istanbul. Since the hostel prepares meals for guests, its kitchen is part of hostel's restaurant. The kitchen is not open to hostel's guests, so take this fact into consideration. If you used to self-cattering, then you should look somewhere else.
We stayed at the hostel for one night only. The hostel is centrally located, only 5-10 minutes on feet from City Terminalen. Don' get dissapointed by the entrance and the subterrainean location of the hostel, as the ventilation is perfect. There is a fully equipped kitchen and a dining room, which is a big plus. The staff is very kind, no objections. The only minus were the male toilets, where two out of four toilets were clogged that night. I don't know if they were cleaned the next day.
We stayed at the appartment for 4 nights and feeled like at home. The appartment is centraly located (5 minutes on feet both from the main railway station and main square). Don\'t get dissapointed by the gate/entrance to the house. Inside, it is spotlessly clean and the kitchen is fully equiped. There is cable TV but NOT Internet, which is the only minus. However, Subling Cyber Cafe is relatively close, at 12 Teslina St. You only need to contact the owner shortly before arrival and enjoy ur stay.
I would give them an overall 5 if they kept the reservation that we made two months ago. When we arrived, our room was hired, but the staff was professional enough to give as the hotel owner's room. All in all, a recommended place to stay.
The staff is very kind ans their English is very good. The are also honest - I left my laptop PC and valuable things on the reception without problems.
A typical hostel with a lot of foreign travelers. It\'s clean, has a restaurant and a large communal room, many PCs with Internet connection and is located in the historical Sultanahmet neighbourhood of Istanbul. You will feel at home there.
