    Security - we did not have any problem while our stay but as it is mentioned in their note you should bring your own lock Location - great location, very close to Galata tower and Istiklal caddesi, so a lot of restaurants and cafes near by Atmosphere - young people from all over the world, mixed gender, friendly Facilities/Cleanliness - bed, floors and toilets in the room were clean, there is need for some refurbishment in the shower, but it was normal and no smell or anything like that

    Very Good

    Very basic hostel. Not so clean, not many facilities, but friendly and helpful staff. Sleeping here was a pity due to the terrible matrasses, wasn’t a big fan of that. Also, the rooms aren’t locked so that felt quite unsafe sometimes. Overall rating would be a 7, since the price and location make it up. Close to a tram and metro stations (5 mins walk) and lots of cafés and small shops where you can buy much, (also alcohol!). Would recommend if you’re in the city to party, not for a proper sleep.

    Location is amazing and it's pretty cheap, was good for a stopover ! Seems like people are living in the hostel, feels a bit like you're entering in someone's house at first. Staff is nice but not super organised (they don't accept cards and didn't have cash for change)

    There are long term residents living in the hostel. I had a foot injury but they still were not prepared go me a bottom bunk, which were mostly taken by the long term residents and volunteers. As a result, there was nowhere to sit in the room so I have put my shoes on sitting on the stairs. Cleaning was very cursory, the toilet would not flush properly and sink would not drain, which left a nasty residue for the next user. Would I stay there again? No, in future, I'll pay a for a hotel room

    Facilities were old and not well taken care off. There were some people that looked like they lived there, no English, no minimal social interaction, so sh*tty atmosphere. The 3 level bunk beds shake everytime someone goes in. Bugs in the bathroom. If someone left the door open you will sleep with a nice sh*t bedroom smell. You here people going up and down the stairs so the time.I was actually surprised with the high rates. It's cheap, maybe alright for night if you just care a about the price.

    Crazy girl telling her roommates to better not fall asleep because she doesnt like them, robberies, bad atmosphere, triple bunk beds, everytime someone moves in their bed it feels like an earthquake no space, not a lot of space, no place to put your stuff that you dont want to put in the tiny locker, no plugs to charge your phone overnight, no toilet paper, lot of people who wont socialize. Basically a hostel people book just to have a roof over their head.
