    My stay at Galata was just perfect . A true histel with young vibe located in the best area for tourism, 5 minutes walk from istiklal Street. I did not even need a cab the day I left since Taksim was accessible , that s where the airport shuttle is. The Şişane metro too. Everyone at hostel friendly and welcoming Hakan , Craig and Margo who I was saddened he left the permisses. If I m back to Istanbul this where I'd be , no hesitation y only regret is I should ve stayed longer if it was possible.

    Galata west hostel is in the center of the city. So it is very easy to go any where. The wi fi is very good. There is a small and nice roof in the building. The staff are friendly and helpful. There is a small kitchen you can cook in it, and also there is a room to stay or eat in it. I extended my stay there. Love the place.

    owner / workers didn't speak / understand much English, but were friendly. good interaction with other travelers, even though there is no real atmosphere to speak of (you just talk when you can) Kitchen in hostel is atrocious and unclean. They had lockers with a lock they sell for 30 TL (that was good, I guess) close to major places, like Taksim square, Istandlal avenue, Gelata tower etc. but very expensive (touristy) shops for food close by, so you end up spending more than you want to on food.

    Really just a place for people looking to sleep. No communal atmosphere, poor facilities, cramped rooms, and stinky/sweaty toilets with no ventilation. The only good thing about it is the location which is super central, although it can get a bit noisy at night with a bar situated right next door. You can find much better places in Istanbul for a similar price.
