    I have stayed in three hostels in my time in turkey and this by far is the best!! The staff are amazing! They all speak English very well and the owner is amazing. He helped me out with cash when an atm took my card which he absolutely didn’t have to do. It’s also a great community of travellers with the bar facilitating this. The events they run are also second to none, the bar crawl on Saturday is one of the funnest nights I have had in turkey! I could not recommend this place more!

    I had a really nice stay at Cheers Lighthouse hostel - I met some great friends for life there! The location is perfect for exploring Istanbul. The staff were very welcoming and always did their best to keep the customers comfortable and happy. The hostel has a nice bar and common area and they regularly put on evening activities, which was a good way to meet new people. The beds are comfortable and the bathroom was very clean with an excellent shower. I would recommend this hostel.

    My stay at Lighthouse was pretty good! The staff was very nice and helpful. The vibe in the restaurant is also very nice and friendly, it’s a good place to meet people and have some fun. Room was very clean, nice shower and comfy bed. I guess the only downside for me was the absence of any curtains on the bunk bed. I wish I had more privacy but it was okay after all.

    I arrived at Cheers for a 4 night stay and stayed 9. The staff are amazing & go above & beyond to help with any info or help that is needed booking tours. The hostel itself is right on the water so you have a beautiful view to enjoy a beer & a yarn with hostel guests. It is also within walking distance to a lot of the sights you want to see whilst in Istanbul which makes the location handy. Comfy beds & great facilities. Free breaky in the morning is awesome! There are nightly activities, too!

    This is a good hostel for partying and meeting other travellers. The common area is basically a bar and a terrace. There was no kitchen or quiet room. Beds are OK but the room smelled a bit funky. Security and lockers were a bit questionable but safety was never an issue. My room had a really nice view towards the water! It's basically the same hostel as Bucoleon (where the reception and common area are) but this is the building next to it. Overall a great place and I'm happy I stayed there!

    Overall, it was a good stay. The place was clean. Wish the beds had curtains though for privacy. AC worked well. There was food and a bar downstairs and the breakfast provided was plenty adequate. The atmosphere at night was fun. It was the only hostel I’ve ever been to where I couldn’t extend and that was a bummer. I’d never heard of large groups renting out every dorm until this experience and that was stressful. Still, I’d stay again.
