    I’ve stayed in 30 hostels, this is my favourite hostel. Friendly atmosphere, travellers who stay here like to mingle and chat. All the staff (and doggy) are incredibly welcoming & helpful, always someone at reception. Location is unbeatable with an insane view of Hagia Sofia from the rooftop bar. I only booked 2 nights but after my first night here, I extended my stay for the rest of my time in Istanbul. Highly recommend the BBQ & pub crawl with Sin, he makes sure you get back safely at the end.

    I really enjoyed my stay here at Cheers Hostel. Originally booked for two nights but extended for another extra two nights. Tarik (the manager) and the rest of the staff helped me with information and booking my tours / transportation. The hostel organised a BBQ and a Pub crawl which is an excellent social event to meet other solo travellers. There is a rooftop bar which I met amazing people here. I highly recommend staying here.

    Had the best time in Cheers hostel, one of the best, social hostels I’ve stayed in as a solo backpacker. Tariq, Sinan & Elifa really looked after all the guests. If you’re looking for a hostel in a great location, with a social atmosphere - this one is perfect.

    Hands down this is the best hostel I have ever stayed at. LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION! It is walking distance to every major attraction and public transportation station. The magnificent view of the Hagia Sophia directly outside the windows of the upstairs bar is magnificent. But the greatest part of this hostel is the AMAZING STAFF!!!!!! They were beyond helpful and the most friendly. This place is a must!!!!

    I was only here for 3 nights but I loved it! The location is unbeatable - right next to Hagia Sophia and Blue Mosque. My favourite parts were the friendly staff (Sinan and Seyful were awesome) and the PUB CRAWL on Friday led by Sinan! We went on a party bus to three different clubs with three different vibes/music and had the time of our lives. We were out until 4 am then found some kebabs haha Highly recommend this hostel! Small but has everything you need :) Remember to bring a lock!

    Great, lively hostel in the shadow of Aja Sofia - you could not get a better location! The staff were lovely, and there is a wonderful rooftop bar with views over the old town. Some security improvements should be made though - a door code, or something similar before you reached the rooms.
