    Wonderful place, clean and close to Sultanahmet and restaurants. The staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful and spoke good English. The roof top bar is a great place to meet people, have a drink and view the sunset. They will even order in food for you which was very reasonably priced. And the breakfast is excellent. A great place to stay.

    This is a family run hostel. The 3-generation team works together well to make sure you’re happy while staying there. The location is superb in that you can find everything in the neighborhood; very convenient.

    Very Good

    Decent hostel in an incredible location. Some things to be aware of: some staff will press/insist you pay in cash only; they will also corner you and pressure you into writing your review, NOW, in front of them. Very strange. Everything is a bit dated but it's in an old building so kind of expected. Rooftop terrace has good views and nice spot to meet and chat with other travelers. Also the olives at the bar are so good, try them! Bed is old and kind of uncomfortable. Metal frames are rough.

    In the dorm room, my metal ladder to my top bunk was missing a safety cap on the top so it was very sharp. I ripped my jean pants on it which was not ideal. I told management about the problem which hopefully can be fixed in the future. Second, is them pushing to pay by cash. I was asked to pay by cash, when I protested that I wanted to pay by card they were less than thrilled. I also overheard them trying to make room discount deals with other guests if they paid by cash. Seems really shady.
