    Well located guesthouse in a day&night lively area. The rooftop terrace gives a new view of the city. The rooms are OK but could be refreshed at some places. The personnel is kind and always helpful...

    The best thing about this hostel is the location. It is located very close to Istiklal which is a lovely place to walk or eat, Taksim square (one of the main attractions in Istanbul) and Galata Tower. I found the staff friendly and helpful, though the hostel is quite small and the common area is very cramped. The rooms were also very small (female dorm), but quite clean.

    The location was definitely 10/10. Every public transport was so near and hostel is two turns from Galata tower. The staff was nice and helpful. A system error caused a huge problem for us where we booked 2 beds on website, but the hostel management said they had no free bed for that day and that the system made an error. So I'd give it a 5/10 for the stress and confusion that caused before arriving. But management was nice and helpful. So my friend and I ended up sharing one single bed.

    The guy at the reception was kind and smiling. That was the only positive thing about the hostel. There was a fight in the middle of the night, with one guy punching another. The hostel as a whole is extremely dirty.
