    I absolutely recommend Agora! The location is perfect, near the main tourist points to visit: Blue Mosque, Aya Sofia, Grand Bazaar, etc. They arranged for me a Show which, I enjoyed a lot, called Hodja Paşa. Friendly staff, always sharing meaningful information. Clean place and delicious breakfast combined with a stunning terrace view. I come back for sure!

    Really nice hostel with beautiful roof and wonderful breakfast. Very clean. My thanks to the two girls upstairs for coffee and company early in the morning when I couldn't sleep because of jet lag.

    Lovely place. Not a particularly social hostel, but it is quite clean, safe, and friendly. The owners are insistently kind and helpful and the facilities are spotless. Nice location for those seeking to see the touristy sights, and it’s a close shot to the nearest Metro, from which you can access the rest of the city. They make a nice light breakfast in the morning and the rooftop patio is a gorgeous spot to see the city at night from. Thank you to everyone at Agora!

    Excellent location. Dorm very clean. Sheets and covers were pristine (pillow and matress very comfortable!). Toilets also very clean. The whole hostel was quiet (maybe because it was early April). Breakfast quite complete. Staff very friendly and helpful, specially Urum - he's always smiling and willing to help. I'd only suggest written instructions on how to get to tell taxi drivers where the hostel is or to ask if you're going the right direction (streets in Istanbul are quite confusing!).

    I stayed here for a little over a week. The people at the front desk are very kind and helpful aswell as the duo who host the amazing breakfast every morning. Bathrooms and showers are solid. It's not my favorite location in istanbul but it's in the heart of all the touristy stuff. Dorm lockers are like the metal dectors everywhere, no real proctection besides looks. There's a safe in the front for vaulables and someone at front desk all times.
