    Cheers hostel is easily one of the best hostels i’ve ever stayed it. The staff is extremely nice and helpfull and they do anything so make sure you have an amazing time. The location is perfect, it’s really close to all the highlights in the old city. Facilities are really good and beds really comfortable. I especially recommend the pub crawl hosted by Sinan. This guy sure knows how to party and he will make sure you have an amazing night! I would certainly stay here again next time!!

    An absolute awesome stay! The staff - Sinan, Tareq, Emre etc are wonderful hosts, friendly, welcoming, funny. Sinan is one of the biggest legends around, always happy and up for a good time with the guests, creating a lively and fun atmosphere. He organised a great pub crawl which people from others hostels even joined. This place is always busy so you'll meet loads of people and there's always a party if you want one! Best hostel in Istanbul!

    One of the best stays of my trip. The staff went above and beyond to help us and arranged tours for us when all other tour companies were unable to. They even helped me when I left my bag in a local bus. So incredible... extra thanks to Sinan, Sayf and Tariq who made us feel at home and were responsible to ensuring all of the above. Highly recommend to all travelers

    This place is one of my favorite hostels EVER! The guys that work here are so fun, very flirty, and always helpful. The ladies in the kitchen and cleaning the rooms are so sweet and the food is unbelievable. I’ve already recommended to my friends and they booked it. Great atmosphere for solo travelers! Very easy to meet people and it’s in the middle of everything. I will be back one day! Thanks guys for a great stay!!

    The hostels location is great! It's cheaper to take a taxi from the airport than the stuttle they recommend if you're a solo traveller. There's no lock in the doors and it's okay to smoke at the bar.. My room were just below the bar area, and there's no ending time at the music. The area is amazing and you can see Hagia Sophia from the windows at the bar. The staff is super cool and ready to help. It's a great place to meet others if you're a solo traveller.
