    Cheers is one of the BEST Hostels I’ve stayed at and I’ve been to a lot of them! The location is awesome, it only takes a few minutes to walk everywhere. The rooftop bar is the best place to socialize at night and you get a very special view as well! Everything is clean and most of all you feel at HOME! Now let me name drop because this staff is beyond perfection!! Sinan, Tarik, Emre and Seyf make you feel like family, it’s so so refreshing! The Pub Crawls and BBQ dinners are also too much fun!

    Overall, our stay at Cheers Hostel was great! The location was amazing (very close to main attractions), the hostel hosts were friendly - never failed to remember our names and wish us a good morning. The Pub Crawl was a lot of fun and the BBQ dinner was so good as well and gave us the opportunity to meet other people in the hostel! The rooftop bar was one of my favourite parts and it overlooked a beautiful mosque. I definitely recommend Cheers Hostel!

    Had a great stay at Cheers hostel. Its located at the heart of sultanahmet and most of the touristy stuff are within walking distance. The people running the hostel are quite helpful and had upgraded us to a costlier room free of any charge. Definitely value for money

    The hostel itself is in a great location, walking distance to all major attractions which is nice. Good free breakfast. Staff is really helpful and sincere. I however don't understand the hostels high rating. Weirdest thing to me was that none of the doors to hostel rooms locked. Yes, there were individual lockers (bring your own locks) but the doors to the rooms themselves are always unlocked. I came back to the room many times just to find our door wide open for anyone to walk in.

    AWFUL. No locks on dorm rooms - door did not even shut properly, dorm locker full of trash, loud music played all night by hostel staff, holes in sheets that exposed darkly yellowed pillows and bedding, extremely condescending and rude staff that just wanted to sell package tours, broken shower door that did not get fixed over multiple days, boxes of trash in the hall, dorm room curtains full of rips and holes, no individual reading lights, hostel staff turned on overhead lights at midnight.
