    Cheers is my favourite hostel in the entire world. This was my second time staying, and I was welcomed back by everyone like family. The staff is outstanding, and the atmosphere is unrivalled. I cannot express in words how happy have been at Cheers. A place where I have met friends for life, and I hope to return very soon. I love you all!

    Excellent location right in the heart of the touristy area of Istanbul, making it perfect for any first time visitor to the sprawling city. Rooftop bar is real fun with good music, drinks and very friendly bar staff. Downstairs, the team are super friendly and helpful too and the lounge/terrace is also a delightful area to hang out and meet people. Breakfast is included and it‘s a very healthy spread, plus unlimited coffee! Only downside for me is they don’t accept card payment which doesn’t make sense to

    Such a fun hostel! The staff was amazing and would oftentimes invite us to sit and chat with them. They organized events like happy hours and pub crawls for travelers to meet each other and genuinely seemed interested in meeting the people who stayed at their place. The rooms were beautiful and there’s a bar with a nice view of the Ayasofya.

    This is my second visit at this hostel and I promise you I would never choose another one in Istanbul. The staff, the environment, the free breakfast..everything is amazing and the location is unbeatable. You're in the middle of everything and the hostel also helps you with getting taxis for correct price lol and they have pub crawls. Çan was super cool, if I had a problem with anything they are quick to help. Much love

    Really nice hostel in a great location. You’re right near all the main mosques and markets which makes your day planning easy. The hostel does a pub crawl led by Sin that’s a really fun time. They bring you to three bars that you get shots at and then bring you home unless you want to leave early or stay late. Highly recommend joining so you can meet new people from the hostel as well as others at the bar. Overall a really great experience staying at Cheers!

    Incredibly friendly staff make you feel at home and answer all your questions. Absolute cracker location - all the big mosques walking distance, everything else so so easy to access by the tram, while the hostel itself is tucked into a quiet street. Beds were good, storage underneath (though my bag didn't fit), and the shared dorm was pretty and large, although hot (other travellers didn't want to use the AC..?). No kitchen facilities but free brekkie. Great hangout spots on terrace and rooftop!

    Very Good

    23 Sep 2022
    We took a private room which was alright but in a different building from the main hostel. So you ha ve to walk with your luggage after check-in. The location is convenient. Just a short walk from the Suleymaniye mosque. The rooftop bar has a good view. Although they’ve mentioned it on their page but they dont accept cards which is very inconvenient. Overall, the stay was alright and wouldnt recommend this for a long stay.
