    I had an incredible experience staying at the Big Apple Hostel. The location is perfect; on a nice street and just a short walk to many of Istanbul’s top sights. Rooms are comfortable and the bunks offer good privacy. Aside from the great location and accommodations, I found the staff to be some of the most hospitable and welcoming gentleman that I’ve encountered. The rooftop terrace was a great place to relax & meet fellow travelers. I had a wonderful time and I highly recommend staying here.

    Lovely hostel! Receptionist is very nice and helpful, especially a big thanks to Mustafa for giving us advice on travelling around turkey. The facilities are nice, each bed has its curtains. Location is very close to sightseeing places. Would definitely recommend!

    It was really good place to stay. I had a wonderful stay in the hostel. I met lots of people from different countries. They dont over price the drinks or whatever food they offer. The mezzanine is the best place to meet travelers. I really do recommend this place to stay.

    it's a very nice hostel with really helpful and open stuff. they really took time to explain stuff and head out with us. I recommend the dorms :) only thing which was not perfect that the hostel seems to be kind of a hotel at the same time. so it's not just backpacking young people. I really enjoyed my stay and recommend you to come.

    I’d recommend Big Apple Hostel on Mustafa alone. He can solve pretty much any problem you bring to him, provide you with off the beaten path recommendations, save locations on Google Maps for you if can’t find your way out of a paper bag, and is an exceptionally kind human being. The hostel is steps away from Sultanahmet and has a fantastic rooftop terrace. Just book it already!

    Mustafa and the guys are first class. Super helpful and always around for whatever you need. Comfy beds with curtains. Nice rooftop patio. Really close to a lot of the tourist sites. If you want a relaxed place where you’ll still meet people, this is the place.
