    Staff was top notch! I felt like I was staying partially at someone’s home that’s how welcoming and intimate the experience felt. Front desk reception was truly the sweetest person ever. Gave food recommendations, overall tips of turkeys, etc. Breakfast is delicious and unlike any other food you’ll have at a hostel and upstairs on their terrace. Stay and enjoy!

    I won’t go into detail, but my rating would have been much lower if it had not been for Ugur. He refunded me for one of my nights and was sincerely apologetic for my bad experience related to an oversight in the cleanliness of my bed. I probably won’t stay at Big Apple again, but I do greatly appreciate Ugur’s effort. And the breakfast was actually pretty good.

    We were in an en-suite room and it was not a good stay. Unfortunately the bathroom had a very strong smell and the room was noisy from the street. The staff were nice and it seemed social
