    I had two days to spare in Istanbul but was welcomed and treated wonderfully by all the staffs in the reception, specifically Mustafa who selflessly helped me create a day plan for my stay around the city which eased my experience tremendously. Definitely recommend!

    Stayed 3 nights at the hostel. The location is great, it’s near major attractions and all easy to walk to. The 14 bed dorm was good, plenty of room, 3 bathrooms and all beds had privacy curtains, a locker and power points. The breakfast is nice and the view from the rooftop is great. Staff are friendly and went out of their way to give me a map and circle all attractions for me.

    BED BUGS!!! The owner refused to take responsibility and BLAMED IT ON ME! I even caught one and brought it to them at reception. They then, went ahead and canceled my reservation through the website so I was unable to leave a review! I contacted the website because it is unfair to not let fellow travelers know how this place operates. These people disgust me! I have over 100 bed bug bites on my body and the owner said “I must have brought them.” Worst hostel of my life and I’ve stayed in 80+
