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 had an amazing time staying at Cheers - a wonderful ambiance, incredibly kind and helpful staff, an adorable, friendly dog named Zaman (time). The location is fantastic, the breakfast is very good and the general vibes are warm. Highly recommend!

    Words can not explain this hostel. Perfect location, great atmosphere and extremely clean. The guys that work there are all really cool (Sinan, Seyf, and Tarik). They will chat and hang out with you and always super helpful. I was warmly greeted by Sinan who is one of the biggest legends around. He organised a great pub crawl which people from others hostels even joined. I will definitely be back!

    If you plan on going to Istanbul, make sure to book your stay at Cheers Hostel. Incredible location, everything you could ever need is close by and the staff are exceptional and will help you with anything you need. The atmosphere was also amazing and it was easy to socialize with people. The rooftop bar also has an astounding view of Hagia Sophia in the evening and at night. I will return to Istanbul again one day and I will definitely stay here again.

    I had an amazing stay here so I extended to stay even longer. It’s super close to the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sofia Museum and a lot of other tourist attractions and restaurants! I loved the breakfast and beds were comfortable too. The staff was awesome especially Sinan who checked me in and always asked how my day was & always willing to help. He introduced me to another South African staying here & we ended up getting along really well & went sightseeing a lot together! Will def stay again! :)

    If you are planning a trip to Istanbul, Cheers Hostel is a MUST! We were warmly greeted by Sinan, given a map full of recommendations & directions, then shown to our room. It was beautiful & extremely clean. We joined Sinan & the rest of the guests for a home cooked BBQ - Unbelievably delicious! We hung out in the upstairs bar area(must see views), where everyone mingled, drank and danced. We went on a bar crawl with the hostel & it was the highlight of our trip, 10/10 would recommend.

    This was my first ever hostel experience and all I can say is that I was blown away. So close to all of the best sites to see in istanbul and if there's anything further away there's a tram station very close by. Sinan was great with showing us all around the city and nice places to eat. Don't play chess with him though he's too good. I cannot recommend this place more it was a beautiful experience.
