    It was a really nice stay. The hostel is very well located. 5 min walk from Hayia Sofia and the blue Mosque. It has a nice terrace where you can hang out and very nice breakfast :) Also, Sinan organized pub crawls on Fridays, which are a lot of fun and a very nice way to see how turkish nighlife works.

    I loved my stay at Cheers hostel! Tariq and Saif were extremely helpful. Tariq and Zamam ran with me to get me a cab to the airport! Phew! Aleph is an excellent bartender. People at Cheers are the funnest one can meet during a vacation. And oh, what a view of the Ayasofia! I bet there isn't a better one that you can catch during breakfast in pyjamas in Istanbul. I am going to recommend Cheers to anyone I know who is traveling to Istanbul. And tell them to do the pub crawl. With lots of love.

    Fantastic time at Cheers Hostel in SultanAhmet. This was my first hostel and it was a great experience. The staff was especially warm and helpful. The atmosphere was very fun and sociable, and there's a really great pub crawl organized by one of the staff. The lobby area always has a friendly staff, good jazz music and the cutest guard dog to keep travelers company. Would recommend to anyone.

    Very Good

    I stayed in a private room, a few doors down from the main hostel. So I can't comment on what the dorm accommodation was like. The room was clean, quiet and well provisioned with bed linen and towels. Shower and WC were onsuite. In terms of location, it's about a 5 minute walk from Sultanamet Square, so you are close to the historic attractions of Instanbul, like the Blue Mosque My only minor complaint is the wifi connection was not very reliable. I had to manually reconnect at times.
