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!

    Can a place really make you feel like home during a pandemic? Yes!The staff made me feel welcome with their genuinely warm and kind hospitality. Love the super chill late mornings sitting with a coffee in the garden patio watching a slice of Turkish life. Walk to all the major sites. A short taxi ride to Taksim, a super fun area to eat, drink, and have fun. Bonus that it is clean and the beds are solid unlike other hostels. Stayed second time on the return trip too. Thanks for everything!

    After such a hectic week, I have never felt so lucky to be stuck at cheers hostel, sinan, elif and Mr tarik have been a blessing in disguise, the bar is amazing, the staff are the most amazing people and I could not have been more lucky to have been stuck in cheers hostel after the closure of borders. The most kindest and genuine people. Love this place and the staff with all my heart. I'll be back

    There is no place like home. Picture this, feeling at home in another country. That is exactly the feeling I got at Cheers. The staff, the place, location, the warmth of the people working there is immense. Location is perfect bang in the heart of it all. Rooms are spotless, breakfast good with fruit in the mix. From the minute I got there I felt welcome!! I ended up staying twice during my trip. I felt I wanted to spend some more time with my new Turkish family!!! Countdown to the next one

    I was so amazed and blown away that the staff was so friendly and hospitable. It was very clean and all of my belongings were safe and secure. I went there with the typical low hostel expectation. But it was the complete opposite experience. I’d highly recommend using Cheers. I’m definitely going back to this hostel.

    My favorite part about this place is the location. I only had a quick layover in Istanbul so the walkable distance to major site attractions like the Hagia Sophia and Blue Mosque was amazing. The hostel itself was fine. Staff were helpful and friendly.

    It was a pretty decent hostel. The staff were all nice and friendly and very helpful. The location is great, right next to all the major attractions. But not so great about the location is that you’re near mosques that have 4am and 5am prayer call and it will wake you up. The wifi wasn’t great in the up stairs rooms, only in the lobby.
