    Me and my friend once we reached the Istiklal New Hostel, we found a place closed and later we found out that the owner and probably the reception is located in the Istiklal Old City, where at the end we stayed. The place is really nice, well located in Sultanahmet area, the rooms are coloured and from the window, you can see the Santa Sophia, in the morning you can enjoy a nice breakfast. The only thing I didn't like it, is the owner, that behaves like a person only interested in money.

    Staff is super friendly and they try to help you however they can. Location couldn’t be better! The girls shower was a bit tricky, hot water would go off and the toilet was very weak so it wouldn’t even flush toilet paper. In general it’s a good value for your money :)

    It’s a very good located hostel. The people there is very nice and gently. However it’s not very clean (the bathroom was always floated and with no paper). I recommend this hostel if you want something cheap and well located:)

    You book your place and you know that once you arrive at the hostel you imagine to have your bed and a shower. Imagine NOT !!! I was refused by the rude receptionist saying that my place was given to someone else and there is no place even though I had booked through the system and paid a fee. I had Regretfully stayed at this place and its name was then OldCity, now they came up with a new name and image which they are ready to ruin again. Pay a very little more and stay elsewhere, DONT GO!!!
