    This is hands down the best hostel I’ve ever stayed at. I stayed here last year and knew I had to come back. Perfect location with easy access to all main attractions,beautiful view of the Marmara sea and amazing breakfast. Big shout-out to Max for always making me coffee and Murat for always fixing any issues I have. The staffs here are so warm that it felt like I’m coming back home. It was fun to look back at pictures from last year. Will definitely be back (yes again😂)

    Cheers Lighthouse is a very nice place to stay in the historical center of Istanbul. The rooms are pretty and large enough, it is clean and the breakfast is good. The common room is so nice with a terrace looking to the sea, a very nice place to chill, listen to music, chat or work. :) There are organized some theme events every day which I found very nice. But the best thing is the staff, I felt them as my family I will never forget! HEARTFELT THANKS and APPRECIATION!!

    Such a wonderful hostel, with a beautiful view of the Sea of Marmara. The location was great and easy to walk to all of the main attractions, and the free breakfast every day was a treat. Kind staff and clean rooms. Would definitely come again. :)

    Beds really are that uncomfortable, just a box spring mattress and you can definitely feel the springs. A bit dusty, breakfast is hard boiled eggs some fruit and bread selection, olives, cucumbers. Walking tour wasn’t great. He didn’t provide a ton of info and took us to shisha/tea bar where we had to pay (even if we didn’t smoke). Does take you to a pretty cool rooftop restaurant though. Overall: walking tour could have been better and hostel is cheap but there probably are better options.
