    We felt very well and welcoming at Lola Backpackers Hostel. The staff is so friendly, hospitable and helpful. The rooms were clean and the flair of the hostel is very cozy. The people who were guests were all open minded, funny and friendly. I can recommend this hostel to 100 %.

    One of the best hostels I have stayed in, the owners and staff are some of the loveliest people I have met and make you feel at home instantly. Wonderful atmosphere and a great place to meet like minded travellers. Will only stay here when I come back to Istanbul as I enjoyed my time here so so much.

    The best hostel I've been to on my trip to Turkey. While the hostel is still being built and not everything is finished, the atmosphere and staff are great. It was my birthday when I was there and I was bought a birthday cake and was sang happy birthday! I couldn't ask for a better experience than this and I will come back when I'm back in Istanbul!

    The hostel is in a weird location in amongst the DIY stores of Istanbul but not far from the Galata tower and bridge. The hostel is a typical backpackers hostel and very basic. You get what you pay for. There are lockers for you valuables but the majority of my belongings were stored under the bed and I had no issues. It could do with be better cleaned, mainly the rooms but I guess that is difficult when you are at full occupancy for a long time. Overall it is good and I would stay again.

    Really minimalist. Suits travelers who only seek bed for the night.. Cheap and friendly staff, but awful toilet & shower.

    Innanzitutto dovevamo essere tutti in un unico dormitorio ma il tipo ha sbagliato. L'esterno dell'ostello è sporco e puzza di pipì di gatto. Il proprietario non fa nessun tipo di pulizia, nemmeno spostare una bottiglia di plastica nel cestino. I gatti entrano nell'ostello fino alle camere. A fianco alla cucina c'è un buco enorme nella parete da cui può entrare qualsiasi cosa/animale. Per la cifra che ho pagato (10 a notte) trovo di meglio. Il peggior ostello in cui sia mai andato.

    Shower on my floor broken. Girlfriend ask for help with taxi to airport they just said no. Rooms really hot. Club next door was kinda cool until the same beat was still playing at 5 am. Shady back alley. Ended up getting hotel next door. It is cheap and I understand that but it’s a rough place to stay.
