Very expensive, the room rate does not include the mandatory sheets which should be included in the price as you don't have the option to use your sleeping bag or own sheets. Not enough bathrooms. There are no locks on the doors to dorms so anyone could walk into your room. Staff take their time in serving people so expect to wait for a while. Besides those faults it's very clean, decent location and nicely designed.
Excellent flash packer hostel! The design is beautiful, great breakfast, staff are all massive hipsters and very friendly and helpful. Beds were comfy and everything was spotless. Location is nice and central. Wifi is also very fast and reliable on each level. Attracts a cool crowd of travellers. I would definitely recommend and will be staying here again when I visit Istanbul in the future. Highly recommend!
Very hard to find, on the top level of a very old run down building with barely any signs. It's part of another "hotel". Cons: Shower did not work, rickety elevator looked like it could collapse any moment, staff that did not know where tourist sights were actually located (and told me to look at sights that are not even there). Pros: Location is easy for walking around the main downtown area and I did have a amazing view from my (very old) balcony over the ocean/park.
Very hard to find, in a building construction that looks like a abandoned building. Kind of sketchy down town area and about 20-30mins walk to egypt museum (not 10 like they say). Breakfast was fine and clean enough though I woke up with lots of bites that most likely came from Mosquitos. No atmosphere at all and felt very unwanted
The place is located in a good area, close to lots of nice cafes and bars. Everyone goes to bed at 10PM though and there is no social side to the place, you will be woken up at 9AM every day (like I was) with a guy cleaning and changing beds over despite the check out time being 10PM. Its fine if you just want to sleep somewhere clean and good location but dont expect any party atmosphere or a sleep in.
Ed is awesome and will make your stay here amazing.
Nice hostel with a great free breakfast. Nice clean facilities and great Internet access with wifi or their apple macs. One point to note though is the age of people stayin there is pretty mixed but around 25-35 or older and they close off all common areas at midnight so there is literally no where for you to go if you just want to chill and not sleep. Great if you just want to explore Toronto and have somewhere nice to sleep but if you want a party go elsewhere
Great hostel, the staff are amazing especially the guy who lives on the room in a hut. Make sure you go to their 'activity' each night. Sangria night was great and we also went out to some bars another night. Made lots of friends and great memories. Definitely recommended.
great location, nice staff, great breakfast included and clean hostel. Our shower was absolutely broken though, more water went up the wall than into the shower. Right around the corner from a lot of cool little shops and bars. Not a party hostel, lots of families were staying there with children. Would definately stay again though
We stayed in the ánnex´which isn´t even part of the main hostel meaning we had to walk there in order to use wifi (Which they charge 1 euro per hour!!) and laundry, kitchen, breakfast etc. Was very annoying even though its not that far away. Showers were aweful in the annex. Tiny boxes that didnt have any mirrors, hooks to hang clothes on (so they get damp) and there are no sinks other than tiny ones in your room. Really uncomfy beds too. Good location though next to the Museum. Not great place
Nice Hostel. As we arrived the nice English lady working there fed us pasta. We were 3 people in a 6 bed dorm. Only one bathroom and shower for everyone in the room but no real issue. This was not a party hostel, people in our dorm were in bed by 10PM which was strange. Good location though, close to lots of attractions. Be prepared to walk up 4 flights of stairs though because there is no lift. Staff were friendly and helpful and the place had a full kitchen and was pretty clean
very clean, nice air con and kitchen but no atmosphere. More of a motel then a hostel. Barely saw anyone else staying there. Location is about 20 min walk to most things so not too bad. Good place if you just need a place to sleep in comfort before going out partying.
Please don´t stay here! The staff were lovely people but the place is absolutely disgusting. It may be in an old palace but its fallen far. We stayed in a 8 bed dorm, it was 40 degrees or more and no air conditioning so we needed to leave the windows open in this tiny room for air. Woke up with about 30 bites all over me (From mosquitos hopefully, pretty sure they dont have bugs). One shower and toilet for EVERYONE IN THE HOSTEL and it didnt even work. Some stranger slept on my bed. Dont stay!!
Probably one of the coolest hostels I have ever stayed at. Each room is themed and look amazing. Staff were incredibly nice and helpful. Everything was nice and clean and had good wifi. Highly reccomend staying here I know you will love it.
This hosel is themed like the book Hitchhikers guide to the Galaxy. Pretty modern looking. We stayed in the 4 bed private dorm which was in what appeared to be a recently renovated appartment building. Rooms were big and clean, only one bathroom for quite a few people though. Location is great, near a cool area with lots of nice food. Breakfast is pretty good too. Down side was staff member who checked us in took 40 mins and was quite rude to us. Also very noisy at night. Very bad wifi.
Great wifi connection. Clean. The location was next to a highway and not really near anything that exciting, although it was close to the main train station which was good. The hostel is huge and seemed to be packed with school groups and 18 year olds. The bar was pretty aweful. Not much character, I would probably not stay here again just because its quite boring.
