    What makes this hostel are the super friendly staff (big shout-out to Takir and Soni!) The rooms are clean. The breakfast is great. And the view of Hagia Sophia from the upstairs bar is probably the best in all of Istanbul! Highly recommend

    So happy with our stay! The staff was so friendly and helpful! They told us the best restaurants, sights to see, and things to do. They also had a fun pajamas party on our last night! Sinan and Seyful were legendary!! They really treated us like friends and created a great atmosphere! I will definitely stay here again next time and recommend it :)

    Great hostel! As a solo female traveler in Turkey for the first time, I felt very comfortable here! The staff are very friendly and helpful. Sinan's pub crawl is a great time! There is a rooftop bar which is an easy way to meet other travellers too. I stayed mostly in the 8 person female dorm. The bathrooms on that floor were always super clean! My last night was in a mixed dorm that turned out to just be me and 5 men which happens I guess. I'd stay again in the female dorms.

    Super lovely place! I had a double en-suite which was perfect, really clean and comfortable. Breakfast is tasty and there’s a nice bar area with a view to the Blue Mosque which is very pretty. Seyf and Sinan are so friendly and are so happy to answer any questions and make you feel at home too. I would definitely stay here again!

    Great little hostel close to tourist attractions. The place was pretty full, and sadly, a hostel party meant they turned on the thumping music and started drinking about 8pm. I regret not having earplugs. Very friendly staff and included breakfast was great (hard-boiled eggs, fruits, bread, coffee). Great place and value and would recommend, but book a dormitory style room not near the rooftop bar/veranda.

    What a location! If it's your first time in Istanbul, I 100% recommend this hostel. You can see the Hagia Sophia from the bar! The staff is great, always helpful. Good breakfast and one of the most fun pub crawl I ever went to. On the other hand,my room was right below the bar and it can get pretty noisy, so maybe ask to not be in that room if it matters to you. Except for that,I had a great time at this hostel!

    The Hostel was Awsome specially the staff Sinan Seyf Tèo Alif, Great Place to meet people around the world, near to Tramway station 200m you can go where ever you want, hostel is clean but not that calm in the night with the bar, so for sleeping early people is not the right option, otherwise i recommand this hostel if you are going to Istanbul
