    I am a 65 yr old serious worldwide backpacker and can say unequivocally this is the best hostel I have EVER stayed in. The staff, from top to bottom, are simply AMAZING! They go above and beyond to help you feel like you are the most important person ever to stay at their establishment. The value for the money is displayed by its location and a fantastic free breakfast! Don't miss out on the Saturday BBQ featuring a local talented belly dancer! Tons o fun!! AWESOME place! CHEERS to all!

    I don't normally leave reviews... but this is without a doubt one of the best hostels I have ever stayed in. My time in Istanbul would have been far less enjoyable if I hadn't have met the team working at cheers. From saving me from ripoff restaurant to just chilling in the bar at night they made my entire experience so much better than a regular hostel. You can't really stay and not have a good time with the guys working there just an all round solid group. bonus: amazing breakfast, cheap dorms

    Muy buena ubicación, cerca de las mezquitas. Muy buenas y limpias instalaciones, el personal muy atento y dispuesto siempre a ayudarte. Nosotros extendimos nuestra estadía a 4 noches ya que el lugar era muy placentero. El desayuno buffet muy bueno y en una terraza con hermosa vista. Muy recomendable y sin duda volveremos en nuestra próxima visita por la ciudad.

    This place hits all the marks! Amir, Murat, Pedrito, and the other staff have amazing hospitality skills and really made me feel welcome. I stayed in one of the deluxe rooms and was upgraded to have an ocean view. The hostel always has something going on, from shisha nights to pub crawls, making this the perfect spot for solo travelers. It’s a bit of a walk from the nearest tram stop, but you are still within walking distance to the Hagia Sophia and Blue Mosque. Would stay again in a heartbeat!

    Very Good

    Most of the staff are great, breakfast is amazing, the views are wonderful, and the events are great. But there is no security what so ever. Honestly, if I was a thief this would be my playground. I stayed in the female dorm and I had to request that they clean out bathroom, because frankly, it was disgusting. The beds are super springy and a couple springs on my mattress were poking out. I had to be strategic about where I was positioned. Totally a shame, because the atmosphere was great.
