    With an amazingly friendly staff, this place is highly recommended. Amir, Sahil and Murad were great hosts. Told us about the best hangout spots, showed us the city and gave us an incredible experience. The rooms have the best value for money. Hostel cafe has its own hip vibe. Would definitely stay again.

    The location and view of the Bosphorus speak for itself but it really is the best hostel in town. What sets it apart is the atmosphere and Amir and Sial behind the bar and desk who are funny, good crack and always there to help out. The pub crawls are a good way to meet loads of people from all over and you can enjoy the sarcastic humour of Inci and Naz on the nights out. Great city, mint hostel. I'll be back soon.

    Great location, close to the major attractions and with great views from the terrace. Not the best breakfast but it's free. The rooms were clean and had their own in-suite bathroom which was nice. The best part of the hostel however were the helpful staff and the events put together by the hostel such as the pub crawl and the walking tour, definitely a great hostel if staying in Istanbul for a couple of days!

    Great hostel in a great location. I would highly recommend staying at this hostel! It is close to the blue mosque and hagia sophia and has incredible views of the sea. The staff were super friendly and always willing to help. Shout out to Amir for the amazing walking tour and for having breakfast made for us the day we left as we left before breakfast started! I will be staying here again when I go back to Istanbul

    - Wifi was spotty in room - Beds were incredibly uncomfortable - Great location - Friendly staff (Max you da man) with good recommendations - Food was subpar Sometimes felt that they were pushing their own agenda for activities to do, not necessarily the ones that were fun
