    This was my 2nd time here- I love it! Rooms/bathrooms are clean, rooms have a/c, WiFi is reliable, there is a pleasant social atmosphere, breakfast is excellent, location is wonderful (easy 5-10 minute walking distance to attractions like Hagia Sophia and Topkapi Palace) and the owner is so kind, helpful and has a good sense of humor. There is also a beautiful golden retriever living here 😁. I felt very safe as a solo female traveler. 10/10 recommend!! I’d love to return with my sister one day.

    Agora is for sure the best place to discover the area of Sultanahmet (the main tourist area) in Istanbul :) the owner (🙌), his reception staff and the ladies are taking great efforts to make your stay as pleasant as possible :) the breakfast (served on a sunny rooftop terrace) is included and absolutely recommended, be sure to get up before 10am 😁 I'd stay at this place anytime again and look forward to do so soon :) all the best for Alper & his crew! Cheers

    A place in the heart of Istanbul full of warmth, welcoming hosts always ready to help you or give you useful information and a very cute and playful pet. We felt very good, we appreciate the location, the breakfast, the generous room space, the cleanliness and promptness of the hosts. Thank you Agora Guesthouse!

    Agora GH was perfect for me. It is nestled in a good location close to many touristic attractions and restaurants. The staff arranged a PCR test and direct trips to the airport. The room was clean and the shower was hot. The walls are a bit thin, but this was not an issue (despite it being a weekend) because the fellow guests are very chill. I did not have the free breakfast on the rooftop, but I've heard it's gone. Highly recommend!

    Great location, awesome breakfast, nice view from the balcony. I totally recommend this hostel! I would love to stay there again in my next time in Istanbul. Just one thing to recommend to the staff: please don't make bad stereotype jokes to Colombian people! Because we hate that :)

    Would definitely recommend! We stayed in a four-bed mixed dorm for two nights and it was exactly what we needed. The hostel is in the perfect area for a lot of tourist spots such as The Hagia Sofia and a few minutes walk from a metro station. The best thing about the hostel is the owner and his very friendly golden retriever. The owner was so welcoming and helpful with any questions or issues we had, he even made sure we had our passports before we headed to the airport for our flight!

    a hostel that has a central location, it has none of that "hostel atmosphere" but a very comfortable place to stay nonetheless. the staff were also very helpful.
