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 was my best hostel experience! The location is amazing and the rooms are great. The hostel offers great entertainment with the rooftop bar and pub crawls. Sinan from the hostel arranges all the pub crawls and bar events. He is a wonderful host and always there to have fun and help out. The hostel is definitely a great place to party. I genuinely recommend this to anyone visiting Istanbul.

    I can't recommend this hostel enough. Sure, locations, facilities etc were all perfect, but what will really make your stay here great, is the wonderful staff! They are extremely nice and always helpful, they will make you feel right at home. (And beware, for you will be fed tea and baklava haha)

    Cheers hostel is my absolute FAVORITE hostel in the world. Having been to over 50+ hostels, I can say without a shadow of a doubt this is THE PLACE to be when you are in Istanbul. The staff are incredibly helpful, the cost for private rooms and dorms very reasonable, and the location is unbeatable - from the rooftop bar you have a postcard perfect view of the Hagia Sofia. Don’t give it another thought - book with Cheers. I did and met the most amazing travelers and had the best experience.

    Awesome hostel! Jay, the manager, and other staff are very welcoming and they made my time visiting Cappadocia a special one. It was more of a Couchsurfing experience because GAS is more than just a hotel. Great location, rooms, lounge and rooftop area, breakfast, and most importantly friendly and inviting atmosphere. I can’t wait to come back!

    I really enjoyed my stay at Cheers as a solo traveler. My private room was very nice and clean, and I loved being able to unwind with the other guest on the terrace and in the bar. The friendly and helpful staff helped me with everything I needed and greeted me like a friend every time I walked in!

    Great stay at Cheers!! The location is incredible, especially since you can see the sunset over Hagia Sophia from the rooftop bar! I stayed in the females only room and had no complaints - it was clean and I was very grateful it had AC (stayed in July)! By far my favorite part was the pub crawl Sinai offered - they covered transport and took us to some really cool bars (one of which was in some building ruins)! Wouldn’t have gone out alone as a woman but felt secure with the Cheers employees:)
