    Very cool hostel and great value for the money. Super friendly & helpful staff, and met some fun interesting travelers, both younger and older, from many countries while here. Location is very close to the famous attractions which serves as a good starting point to explore other parts of the city. The free breakfast is delicious and an excellent deal. Rooftop terrace is very nice. Beds have curtains for some privacy. All adds up to a great deal. Very highly recommended.

    My stay at Big Apple was great ❤️ They have a rooftop pub with a view of Bosphorus!!! Dorms were clean and good. Staff is amazing!! Really helpful,flexible and kind ❤️❤️ I was sick and asked for some lemon tea. They gave me that few times without hesitating 😍 and for Free!!! Mustafa will solve your problems anytime. Location is ideal. Two minutes walk to Sultanahmet square. Best place to explore the old city. You can buy the museum pass from them without standing in lines.

    Pros: *excellent location *reception staff was excellent and very helpful *very nice terrace bar *OK breakfast *good arrangements for shuttles/coaches Cons: *major turnoff was the stained bed-sheets and covers, one of it looked like it had blood stains, luckily there was an extra duvet in the cupboard. *the shower was terrible it would automatically switch from hot to cold or vice versa, the water didn't drain off easily either *no elevators
