    The staff was very friendly and helpful. I was only supposed to be in istanbul for 15 hours so the receptionist made me an itinerary to spend my layover there.

    The man who runs the hostel is very friendly and helpful. My room was not particularly clean, but it wasn't expensive. The breakfasts are quite good.

    The location was great to visit Hagia Sophia and Blue Mosque only 5 min walk away. The area lacks nightlife though, almost entirely restaurants. I recommend to stay here to begin with until seen the sights then move closer to Tasim Square. Trying to visit these sites from Tasim Square can be done but traffic is very bad so better to stay closer It was very clean and staff were friendly and helpful. I would say this is a hotel, not a hostel. No real common area to meet others and no dorm beds

    Very Good

    I specially enjoyed the cleanliness and breakfast but the coffee was instant not real one !!! The location is unbeatable, right in the centre where the main landmarks are. No cooking facilities! The little fridge in the room didn’t work so you had to go to restaurants. The staff recommended expensive ones justifying it because the hotel is in the middle of a touristic area. Información about tours is in € but you can do cheaper !!!!! Use google! Everybody works for commissions.

    Don’t believe the pictures. I got a girls dorm, the room smelled really bad and the bathroom had no light so you need a flash light or a lantern to go to the bathroom. There was one plug in the room so I had to buy a 5 meter extension to charge my phone am computer. When I asked the manager about the issues I had, he told me we are woman and how much do we actually need. Not coming back to this place for the treatment I got.

    I totally don't get why the hostel has a 8.6. The womens dorm has no air conditioning, no plugs and light at the beds. Beds, floor, and bathroom are dirty. There is no holder for the showerhead. They don't have enough keys to immediately/always get a locker and the door of the room can't be locked. The only window goes to the central entrance, which also makes the room very noisy and gives you no privacy. You can only open this window well when you leave the curtain open.
