Great hostel, one of the best i have stayed in ever!! More like a hotel, stayed in a dorm all beds are doubles super comfortable and added privacy with curtains, shelfs light and power outlet. Nice popular bar downstairs that locals go to.. Not your typical hostel bar. Only thing would be they need air con in the dorm as it was rather warm, there was a fan that did an ok job but got rather stuffy in the hot weather.
Another great stay..returned and greeted like a long lost friend.. The staff just make this hostel great. Defiantly stay here again if I return to Istanbul .
I had a great stay in Chambers. Nice clean rooms and very close to everything in Taksim Area. Most importantly it is very quiet considering the whole area is noisy at night. Staff are friendly and helpful.. Only gripe i would have is that the lounge area seems bit disorganised, but found it hard to meet people in the lounge (but not the hostels fault just the guest at the time) My dorm bed and bathroom with very clean. If your staying in Taxsim area and want to sleep this is it!
I had a great stay in the Rock Valley. Great value for money in the area. In a nice quite part of the town away from the main road but close to everything. Staff are great, friendly and even teached me how to play blackgammon. They gave really good recommendations as i arrived without plans They serve a great breakfast with eggs made to order. And the pool is a nice bonus though i didn't make use of it as it was rather cold when i was there. Over all a excellent Stay
A great stay in a brilliant hostel. Location is excellent to see all the sights. The staff are fabulous and is what make this place, they are fun, friendly and interact with guests like good friends. The rooms and bathrooms are cleaned everyday and they serve a good breakfast with teas and coffee made to order. The bar is great fun with a great view and it a great place to meet new people. So good i rebooked to stay again.
