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.


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!

    This place is awesome. The staff is great and a great atmosphere to meet other solo travelers and the roof top bar is awesome. Ahmet, Sin, and Tarik were amazing. They helped out so much with my stay in Istanbul and planning for trips to Cappadocia (since Ahmet is from there).

    If I could give this place 10 stars I would! The staff treats you like family! Sin and Tarik were amazing! Any question you had they answered! They worked around the clock for their guests. They helped me out with my tour which was so amazing. I did it twice! I recommend a tour with Amir! He runs English and Spanish tours in Istanbul they are free walking tours! I started this trip meeting strangers who have become friends! Tarik and Sin thank you again. Light & Love Danielle! I will be back

    Very hospitable staff, had an excellent time staying here for over 5 days! Staff were great especially during the COVID times. Great social bar upstairs which great for meeting a lot of new people and perfect for solo travelers. Very easy to Make friends and go and see all the local attractions which are pretty much on your doorstep. Shout out to Sinan for keeping us entertained in the bar and all the other staff for making it a super welcoming stay! CHEERS!

    Literally every single receptionist was super friendly. The place was super clean and a great location just a short walk to Hagia Sophia palace. We had probably the best new year’s party possible in lockdown times.

    Amazing hostel staff and location to Hagia Sofia and the team line to get everywhere in İstanbul. The upstairs bar is the best part of the hostel. It's very social where everyone meets and has a drink. It's great if you want to party a well.

    Cheers Hostel is the best hostel experience I’ve had in my life. They were amazing not just in providing a great place to sleep and see the city but in helping me plan every step of my experience in turkey and even helping me in moving on to Egypt afterward. The staff are unbelievably amazing and got me discounts in booking trips in cappadocia and elsewhere. I made great friends here with both the stuff and guests and had an experience I will never forgot. Pro tip: Learn how to play chess. ;)

    As I’m writing this I’m looking back at all the fun, struggles, and triumphs I’ve had while in Turkey. It’s tough to put it all into words, but one thing I know is Cheers was with me the whole way. The staff are the best of the best. They have the best food and activity suggestions. Cheers has the best location in Istanbul without a doubt. They have an amazing atmosphere for partying and relaxing. I will for sure stay again, next time I’m in Istanbul.

    Cheers hostel was quite fantastic! Very friendly staff, clean rooms, friendly guests as well. All in all a very nice experience. It was also very nice to have access to a rooftop bar with such a nice view especially when all the bars and restaurants in town are closed.
