    I stayed at Agora for 6 nights and it was great! The desk is 24/7 if you need a hand with anything and they are very aware of who is entering and exiting the hostel. Staff were very helpful and welcoming. They have a great restaurant on the top floor with basic items at incredibly cheap prices (much cheaper than some of the surrounding restaurants) and if you ask the chef, he usually has extra items he can make e.g. chicken curry. If you are after a party hostel, this probably isn’t for you.

    Este hostal es increíble. El dueño y todo su staff son muy amables y mejoran el hostal día a día. Me tocó probar las cortinas en las camas de primero y fue una mejora increíble. La ubicación es súper central para donde te quieras mover y Octavio, encargado de la cocina en la tarde noche es un ser maravilloso. Su actitud y su buena onda son increíbles.

    Agora guest house was incredible! They are doing a great job... You will find a wonderful breakfast included in the price, Every member of the staff looked like a big family, they want to help you all the time! The bathrooms, showers, rooms, all so clean... The terrace has a beautiful sight to the Bosphorus and Haia Sophia... Every evening except Sundays you can have cheap and delicious dinners! Location can't be better...few blocks away from Sultanahmet square... Don't miss it! Thank you guys

    Great location in the heart of the old town: Sultanahmet. The staff were helpful pre-arrival and whilst I was there. Each dorm comes with a locker for your valuables. The free breakfast is very tasty and plentiful. The common area is comfortable and there is usually and intrepid traveller there to talk with. The shared shower and toilet facilities are kept clean. I found out that the hostel were charging 10 euros a night cheaper than what I had paid when I booked, for the same room. Felt robbed.

    its a bit far from the happening part of the city. but if you are looking to stay in the old town with walking distance to most of the tourist attractions dont think twice before booking it.
