    🇨🇱 El mejor hostal en el que he estado, sobre todo si viajas solo. Llevo mochileando 1 mes y este lugar cumplen totalmente las 3B, habitaciones grandes, camas firmes, te facilitan shampoo, jabón, toalla, un casillero con llave incluida, el desayuno de 8-11 AM con mucha variedad, el staff te invita a socializar todos los días con la gente que se hospeda acá, ambiente muy amigable. Un millón de gracias a Khan y Murad, se preocupan por hasta el más mínimo detalle, volveré! Viva Chilito CTM

    Amazing location by TONS of museums/sights/restaurants. Literally so much to do within a 15 minute walk. Blue Mosque, Haga Sophia right around the corner. Located on a safe quiet off-street with seaside views. Good breakfast to start your morning adventure. Common room had a bar, board games, TV for matches, and shisha available. Staff were wonderful, very friendly, and social. Khan checked me in and helped me out with what to see and how to get around. If I visit Istanbul again I'll stay here.

    Hostel price with hotel quality. Location is near public transport and airport bus at sultanamet. Khan is friendly and helpful. The only thing that I feel not convenient is there is no bed light. If you want to use the light you need to go to switch on the button of the central light and light up the room.

    The hostel is located close to all the main sites but is a long walk from the metro, lacks good food or coffee within a sq kilometer or more. Lots of tourists and the prices are jacked up because of the tourists. Nothing special about the hostel. I wouldn’t stay here again

    One of the WORST hostels I’ve stayed in. Super uncomfortable bed. The wifi was so slow, it was practically pointless. The shower wouldn’t drain properly. They overcharge for drinks at the bar. The air-con didn’t work and the room so so hot, you had to have the window open and the traffic from the motet way next to the hostel was so loud. There are mush nicer and cheaper hostels near by.
