Overview

Here at Cheers Hostel, we're about celebrating the good times. You'll feel instantly at home here with our laid-back and friendly atmosphere, fun social spaces and great facilities. Relax by the fireplace with a cup of Turkish tea (and use the free Wi-Fi to make sure everyone at home sees your picture-perfect moment), or head to our Wintergarden Panoramic Terrace Bar for incredible views of the city with a cocktail in hand.

Location

You’ll find us in an ideal location in the heart of the Old City of Istanbul – Sultanahmet. We’re just a minute’s walk from famous sights like Hagia Sophia – a Greek Orthodox cathedral turned Ottoman mosque turned museum – as well as the Sultan Ahmed Mosque (Blue Mosque) and Topkapı Palace. To reach us from Istanbul Airport, take the subway M1A to Zeytinburnu, then switch to tram T1 and get off at Gülhane. We’re about a 5-minute walk from there.

Rooms and Dorms

We have a huge range of rooms to choose from, so you're sure to find something that suits. Whether you're in a group or couple and need a private family room or double, or fancy bunking up with fellow travellers in mixed or female-only dorms, you can expect free linen for a comfy night's sleep. Some rooms have en-suites for a little extra privacy, and if not, the shared bathroom isn't far. Stash your stuff in your locker to explore hands-free.

Extras and activities

Don't miss our free Turkish breakfast served on our beautiful terrace, so you’ll be ready to head off and enjoy the city's colourful markets, museums and bathhouses – with one of our free city maps. If you’re driving to us, you’ll find we have loads of parking space where you can leave your car. And no stress if you're checking in late or coming back from a night on the town, since we have a 24-hour reception. That's Turkish for no curfew!

    One of the best hostels, I can not fault a single thing! I stayed in a private room, it was very clean, came with towels, a comfortable bed, modern bathroom & high pressure hot shower. Cheers is also great for common areas with a bar upstairs with a view of the Hagia Sophia. (Bar closed due to covid but open to hang out in) and a covered patio at the entrance of the hostel. Finally, the best part of all Tarik & Sinan! Genuinely lovely guys who made me feel welcome from the second I arrived

    Really enjoyed my stay here. Despite the difficult time at the moment Cheers hostel still had a good flow of new guests. The hostel is situated near to a transit stop which makes travelling around the city a breeze. There is a really great attic space with an amazing view of the Hagia Sofia Mosque, great place to chill out after dark. Thanks to Tarik for the recommendations, coffee in the morning and discount for the Turkish bath!

    I felt very at home as soon as I arrived at the hostel. The staff were extremely helpful, my dorm room was spacious, clean & had plugs on each bed, the bathrooms were spotless. Although the rooftop bar wasnt open you were still allowed to hang out there & it had exceptional views. The location was perfect for all the main sites in the area and it was also close to a tram station if you want to go further away! There was a great atmosphere at the hostel and it was great for meeting other travell

    Where do I even begin? My stay at cheers was wonderful from the start! I was in Istanbul celebrating my 30th and Sin and Turik went above and beyond to make it a special trip. They were so kind and welcoming and ensured I felt safe throughout my stay. Sin even took a few of us out to a local bar which was a blast! I booked a private room and it was even better than any hotel room I’ve ever stayed in. The hostel is immaculate and has the cutest rooftop. Close walk to everything. THANKS CHEERS!

    Staying in a hostel with a great group of other guests is always going to be a fantastic experience if your a solo traveller. The setting and atmosphere created by the owners really encouraged this and I had a fantastic stay. The owner and staff were extremely friendly, and couldn't do enough to help you enjoy your stay. Location is in the old town, two minutes walk from the star attractions. I really enjoyed it here.

    It's open. Perfect location. Hot showers, clean beds and an bar up top with an unreal view of the Hagia Sophia. The people who work there are super kind and accommodating. Honestly best hostel in Turkey. I've missed traveling and this place has delivered on everything and more. I ended up leaving Antalya early just to come back here.
