    Great location right by Galata tower and within walking distance of the blue mosque and hagia sofia (albiet on a hill). The hostel has a great kitchen with a hotplate, fridge/freezer, kettle and microwave. Social common areas and nice clean dorms.

    The hostel’s location cannot be better, it’s in the middle of everywhere. Staff are nice and helpful, I have book a double room, the room was good the only thing is that there’s no tea maker or coffee at the room, which was little unfortunate.

    I returned this year because I made friends last year with the management. The owner consortium is the same but management has changed. Employee will lie to your face about anything. Galata West survived covid because of long-term residents. International House took in a covid sufferer when I stayed just after the end of lockdown. Every step he took entering the hostel he coughed drily. The Johnson family owners can't refuse their own gang/family whatever the trouble.

    WARNING! Unless you like dirty hostels with no vibe then do not stay here! I booked a private room with an en-suite. The bathroom clearly hadn’t been cleaned in at least a few weeks, there was even pubic hair on the toilet seat! I told the owner and they didn’t care & told me it is “not a hotel, it doesn’t have to be clean!” I couldn’t believe it especially during covid! Also, I will not be surprised if the owner replies something nasty here like they did on google reviews...

    This place is only for men the guy at the reception was in shock when he saw a woman coming in he said this place is full of men no place for women. When I saw the room it was stinking of god knows what after I forced my self to sleep I woke up vomiting. I was not sick at all my health was good going in and come out sick, I couldn't wait until the morning at 7am we left. Please bargain hunters don't bring any one that you care about over there.

    DO NOT STAY HERE. We're backpackers from the US and have stayed at many hostels around the world - this has been the worst. The location is nice, but our private room and shower was dirty, smelled bad, the kitchen is tiny and awkward to cook, NO HOT WATER for showers. The staff didn't welcome, help or show us around as one would expect in this business. After trying to check out early, they wouldn't let us go and tried to make us pay for 6 days although we stayed just 1! DO NOT STAY HERE!
