    Honestly such a sick hostel. Jay and Murat were legendary. Jay literally babysat all of us drunk idiots all night at the pub crawl, carried us around, got us cheap drinks and taxi rides, he even pretended to be my boyfriend to scare away a creepy guy. Top class service all round. The vibes are epic, drinking games and party people. Would highly recommend this place.

    Located very close to the attractions. Clean rooms and facilities. The view from the bar is stunning. Jay ‘the barman’ is a vibe on his own, knows how to keep the place lit with music and drinks. The team go above and beyond to accommodate any request and assistance. ‘Murat’ carries out ice breaker games and makes sure everyone’s included. Pub crawl, Bbq night and belly dance are not to be missed. Wish I stayed longer.

    The young kings Jay and Murat ensured my stay was as pleasant as I wanted at times and as wild as I wanted at times. Murat was always there to try and arrange tours for me and Jay was always there to be the entertainer and poor me another beer. Cheers 🍻🤙🏼 USA 🇺🇸OUT✌🏼

    The hostel was fantastic and what really made it for me was how hospitable the guys are Jay, Sinan, and Murat spared no efforts to make us feel at home with family, always go above and beyond to entertain us. Have made rich new friendships and will definitely be back again.

    Second visit here and I absolutely love the place. Good place to interact with people from everywhere. The staff is really friendly and makes your trip better in so many ways. Got help from a guy Sinan to decide what to do in the city other than the very touristic places and loved all of them. Would come back for sure

    I loved my stay at cheers lighthouse hostel in Istanbul! It was all I needed and more! The hostel has organized events every night of the week but the staff were the best part! Jay (bartender) and Murat were absolutely amazing. As a solo female traveler, it was great meeting them. They were so inclusive and made sure everyone socialized and got involved. They played darts with me and some other guests! Hope to come back some day :) Thanks for the great stay!!

    A lot of reviews suggest this is a mad party hostel but it is the perfect mix of chilled vibes in the daytime and fun/party vibes in the evening. Staff are really friendly and helpful and know a lot about the city. Really comfy beds!
