    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!

    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.

    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.
