    Great location, nice terrace bar, and very helpful staff. They frequently organize activities, some free and some paid, such as walking tours or pub crawling, all of which were good. The bar tender (and all the staff, really) was very friendly and eager to help in any way. Will be coming back.

    A charming hostel with a seaview, situated only a short walk from Idtanbul's main attractions. Rooms are well kept and clean. The showers are decent and beds very comfortable. Delicious traditional free breakfast. Well stocked bar, great cocktails and cheap beer on tap. Sial and Max were helpful and attentive. Make sure to go on the pub crawl; awesome night out!! Will definitely stay again if I come back to Istanbul. Thanks guys for a brilliant stay.
