I have booked dorm in 4 dormitory and the guy at reception denied that they don’t have dorm left and tried to give me dorm at 10 dormitory after little bit argument he gave me 4 dorm… afterwards I enjoyed with the reception guy and we became kind of friends…. The owner couple are super awesome… There is no match for their buffet breakfast I love it…

    Everything about the stay was great—employees, Dennis the dog, rooms, facilities, etc. Besides that, everyone I met there was friendly. The breakfast elevated the experience entirely and I probably wouldn’t have cared if there wasn’t anything there but the breakfast.

    Great choice for me and my friend during our time in Istanbul. Right in the heart of Sultanahmet district and just a short walk away from the main sights. There is someone at the desk 24 hours a day. Cleanliness is on point. The breakfasts in the morning are ample and delicious. However, the staff is the best part. They went above and beyond for us. They gave us great recommendations and made several reservations for us. (Ask about the traditional Hamam - so great!) Thank you so much guys!

    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!

    If your room is downstairs there is lack of air circulation in downstairs room. Breakfast is incredibly good. Showers and bathrooms are decent.

    The staff is wonderful but I had to drop my rating when I was threatened with a call to the police and called a liar due to erroneous bookkeeping on their end. This was after I informed them that I did not enjoy the neighborhood because the men at the restaurants would not stop asking me to sit down. There were times I felt unsafe and this was not taken seriously. Payment had been made but I was also harrased when I requested an accounting. Unprofessional practices reflect a need to change.
