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!

    We stayed at The hostel for the first 2 nights in Istanbul and enjoyed it so much we came back in the week! Fantastic service and advice from Sinan, Emre, Seyf and Nuri who were all really friendly and fun and create a great atmosphere in the hostel. Nat at Cheers Printhouse was also super friendly and helpful. The hostel is really comfortable and clean, the breakfast is great and the bar is the perfect place to meet people and have a great night. Couldn’t recommend more :)

    I was at this hostel last week and my experience was wonderful. I am a solo female traveler from Miami and the staff made me feel at home and secure at all times. They are super chill and helpful at the same time.They have a roof top bar with the most wounderful view of Aya Sofia. The hostel is in the heart of Sultanahmet so you can walk everywhere! I totally recommend Cheers Hostel Istanbul for anyone whose first time is in Istanbul and is in a budget. I can't wait to go back to Istanbul. :)

    Cheers hostel is without a doubt one of the best hostels I have ever stayed at. First of all, the location in old town is second to none. You’ll be less than a 10 minute walk from all the main sites: Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace, etc... Second, while it’s not a party hostel, the bar on the top floor gives you plenty of opportunities to meet new people. Last but not least, special shoutout to the guys at the front desk, Sinan and Seyf. They were incredibly welcoming and helpful.

    Very Good

    12 Jul 2019
    Overall this was a good hostel. It’s in a fantastic location, extremely close to all the main historical sites. The hostel wasn’t very clean and I didn’t feel very secure with no locks on the door. Floorboards and creaky & the blinds are broken. The pub crawl was fun but it’s only run on a Friday night. The only social space is the bar area and without a pub crawl or a dinner, it can be difficult to make friends. Probably wouldn’t recommend if you were solo and wanting to meet fellow travellers.
