    10 out of 10 for sure. The staff here is extremely kind and sweet. Very clean and comfortable. The breakfast is great. A very homey nice vibe. Close to everything you need. Oh and the best part is the owner's cute little puppy that hangs out there all the time! I'd definitely recommend this place to anyone!

    Agora Hostel epitomises the best of Turkish hospitality - warm, friendly and so helpful. We stayed for 3 days and felt so welcomed by the staff here that we didn’t want to leave. The hostel is kept impeccably clean, the food is delicious and Alper and the team are so wonderful. There was also a great vibe with the other guests up in the bar area. Thank you for everything! We highly recommend it to anyone and hope to stay here again!

    Wonderful hostel, owned and staffed by incredible people. I felt welcomed as soon as I walked in. The food in the terrace restaurant is amazing. Ask the staff for recommendations of where to go and what to eat, they will give you all the best insight. Highly recommend Agora Guesthouse!

    Quiet, located in a very tourist-y area just south of Sultanahmet. Nice and simple breakfast - staff is awesome, friendly and hospitable. Close to the Hagia Sofia, Grand Bazaar, Blue Mosque, Basilica Cistern and tons of touristy restaurants and bars. Not a party hostel. Super clean and well maintained. Rooms don't have key access, but have large lockers under the bed for luggage. About an 6min walk to public transit and airport shuttle to Istanbul.

    NOT AN HOSTEL NOT AN HOSTEL NOT AN HOSTEL - They have no kitchen to cook because they sell overpriced food. No room that are locked. It is forbidden to walk barefoot, for hygiene reasons, but there is a dog who is always sitting on a couch at the reception (not clean at all!!). You can not wash your clothes. And shower after check out is 3€!!! Scammers !!!!
