    The Hostel was a bit difficult to find at first. The door is a bit hidden. But as soon as you get there you get a really comfortable feeling, the Host was helpful and really friendly. I really enjoyed my stay, the central location of the hostel comes in handy if you’re traveling by foot around the city, all the main locations and streets are easy to get to. Thanks a lot the whole stuff and definitely see you the next time I come to Istanbul. greetings from your Italian friend Salvatore!!

    Friendly enough, but I'm not amused with the fact that someone was talking about 'DRUGS'... It is illegal, 3 years off as******ng for smoking etc. I'm on holiday, not looking for an extended course of turkish (-; For the rest I can only say that it is a pleasant city, still here

    I have stayed in over 100 hostels worldwide and this is by far one of the worst. About 90% of the staff is made by volunteers with no other interest than their own lives in Istanbul while staying for free in exchange of minimal work. I had basic questions such as “what’s a great coffee shop with WiFi”, “is there a map you can provide”. All were answered with “I don’t know”. WiFi is poor, common rooms tiny and they lost some of my clothes doing my laundry and I had to insist to get a refund.

    One of the very worst Hostel experience - Cleanliness is insane - The odor inside was so nasty - Seemed like 1 guy was living there for long time, who was a drunkard, keeps vomiting, talking over the phone louder while others sleep, himself smell like *****. Complainted to staffs but they didn't take any actions while I noticed they are close to him. (Imagine staying with drunker, who was drunk to his neck & you don't know when and where he will vomit 😣) I DON'T RECOMMEND THIS PLACE AT ALL
