    Everything was great about the hostel, comfy beds, warm showers, and a good hostel to meet other solo travellers with a little hangout area at the bottom of the hostel, or the rooftop where you can overlook the city. I felt the staff, Ugur and Ahmet were friends than staff. Ugur was always willing to hear about my adventures around the city, and Ahmet was always willing to help me out whenever I needed. Will only stay at this hostel when I come back to Istanbul!

    I had a good stay here. Price was very reasonable for a place right in the old town. Beds came with curtains, for privacy and also to keep out the light. Ugur was very hospitable and went out of the way to try to help me buy a bus ticket. He and his colleague provided me with clear directions to go to the otogar. Bathrooms were in the bunk room and not outside. Other reviews raised security concerns, but there are lockers, and it's common sense not to leave valuables in the open in a dorm room.

    My stay at Big Apple Hostel was wonderful! The location is central & very secure with many cute restaurants, shops, and historical sites around. The rooms and the bathrooms are exceptionally clean & very comfortable. They offer you towels, shampoo, soap, and even clean the room every morning! What I absolutely LOVED about the hostel was how friendly, welcoming, and helpful the staff was (especially Ahmad!!! I miss you!) & how DELICIOUS the breakfast buffet was. AHH so good. Definitely recommend!

    This hostel was very comfortable (December). Very quiet and clean. At very nice location just a walk away from the blue mosque. Sound protection is a little weak I could hear from up/downstairs.
