    I had an excellent stay in Istanbul. Met a great crew of people at the Big Apple and this had a positive impact on my experience. The hostel has a friendly vibe, super facilities & a very impressive terrace bar. Istanbul is an expansive city with over 15 million people - so knowing the best places to explore & discovering some of the hidden gems could have been difficult - but the staff, particularly Ugur went over & above to help us create some great memories! Sensational trip!

    Planned on staying four nights, stayed seven. Very clean: bedding and towels changed daily, all common areas kept very clean. It seems like there is always someone cleaning! Great rooftop bar with an amazing free breakfast and killer sunrise and water view. Very close to Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia. Lockers for every bed. Comfortable beds too and the staff of course was super friendly and helpful! I was very happy with everything!

    The staff were super friendly and wanted to help. The room was nice and comfortable. The location was great because it was near all the tourist sights but the location was bad because it was near all the tourist sights—It didn’t feel like a good representation of Istanbul. The view from the rooftop lounge was excellent. The street was a bit noisy and the curtains let a lot of light in even at night. My bed also only had a bottom sheet which was a bit strange.

    The location is really good, and loved the breakfast. In the other side you get what you paid for, it can improve on cleanness. Overall not that bad.

    When it comes to location, this hostel is a sure WINNER. It's walking distance to most of the major tourist attractions, stores, restaurants and the bus/train stations. Room space is a bit limited though and the beds are not sturdy they make noise when you move. Also, the place may be noisy because there's a bar at the rooftop.
