    I definitly recommand this hostel. Very secure, clean, the stuff is helpfull and speak very fluent english. The location is just perfect, at the beginning of sultanahmet neighborhood, before getting lost in the narrow streets. The bar and breakfast area has an amazing view on Marmara Sea. If you decide to spend the evening in the hostel, you ll not get bored. The stuff is dynamic as there is many games to play (darts, jenga…)

    The staff here is super good and they help me one night that a guy next to me in the room was snoring so much I couldn't sleep. So that is a plus! Thanks for the staff and the good time and the Belly dancing night on Saturdays. Big hug to all!

    Great crew: very open and friendly. Of the two places I stayed in Istanbul it was far and away the better, and after speaking with some other travellers, definitely among the better value for money places on this side of The Bosphorus.

    Location of the hostel is ideal - really close to the Blue Mosque and other main attractions in the city. Daily housekeeping so rooms are kept clean. In the room I was staying one of the plugs was out of the wall with cables showing. Good breakfast in the morning. Staff were friendly and helpful however I left early and needed a taxi - the guy at reception called it but didn’t tell me how much it would cost. Good place to stay.

    The location is great, its about 10 min walk from the nearest metro station and from all the main attractions (its uphill though). The guys running the hotel are a lot of fun and very approachable. The bar is lively and you'll meet someone fun for sure. Emir will hook you up for your shopping excursions and for all the other sightseeing options. the hostel has some or the other activity planned daily so its fun to hang around as well.

    Staff was really nice and it seemed like a good hostel if you were a traveller looking to meet others. We were given the basement room, which looks nothing like the photos on the website. It had an enclosed porch/backyard area that was overgrown and looked out only on the road below that was under construction. My general sense in Turkey was that if you feel something is too expensive or you're overpaying, then you probably are - that was certainly my experience here.

    I’ve reserved this hostel, that has great pics for the rooms. For my surprise, when I arrived there they sent me to another hostel, with poor cleanliness and really different from expected. Also, I’ve reserved a room with 4 beds, but they put me on a room with 6 beds. The location is very nice, but the experience was bad. The locker was too small, I barely could put my small backpack inside.

    The hostel is noisy you cant have a good sleep at all, you can hear if someone walk or talks on the downstreet. Bed is painful, the iron inside the mattress will give you back pain. No free breakfast or help was given, there was no value staying here for 10€
