    I chose Cheers because the place I stayed at my first time in town was fully booked. I couldn't have made a better decision as I had an amazing time with great people there. Cheers is really social and the pub crawls are great. It's clean and a good brekkie is included in the price. The staff is always happy to help and Varsha, the volunteer running the bar is an absolute legend.

    Mitchell and myself had a great stay at cheers hostel for 3 nights. All the staff are lovely and super helpful in terms of tips on where to go or what to eat. They also have a vast knowledge of Turkey in general if Istanbul is the start of your trip and you are looking for information for the remainder of your time in Turkey. Highly recommend and hopefully we will be back one day.

    I normally don’t write reviews but this an exception. I love this hostel so much, you’ll be a fool if you don’t stay here. Everyone is so nice and welcoming from the staff and the cute golden retriever. The hostel tours are great. My fav one was the pub crawl organized by Sinan, he’s the life of the party!

    This place is truly the best hostel I could ever imagine. It attracts great people who love to go around the city together and the staff is kind, fun and very helpful. The only downside I could come up with is the fact that the floorboards make sounds, so it's a bit of a challenge to not wake up other people after an awesome night out (but honestly, they should probably just join in anyways. Istanbul doesn't sleep, so maybe you shouldn't either.)

    Staff are very friendly and helpful. Varsha is an amazing friendly bartender and the vibe in the upstairs bar is always welcoming. It's only about 80 lira for a g&t. The hostel offers a good buffet style free breakfast. The location is amazing you can see the Hajia Sopia from the upstairs bar. They organize two bar crawls a week on a Wednesday and Friday for 200TL. They also do a fun boat tour on a Sunday. Well worth staying :)
