    Es una buena opción por el precio, a pesar de ser 6 camas es amplio el espacio. Tienen lockers, aunque no tan grandes. El baño estaba limpio. Desayuno gratis decente. Y el gerente muy amable con recomendaciones para diferentes presupuestos. Cómo en todos los hostales, depende mucho de la gente con la.que te toque el cuarto, en mi caso fue excelente. Lo volvería a usar sin duda.

    Amazing hostel with amazing hospitality! We arrived a couple hours earlier than check in started. The hosts were very welcoming, giving us helpful directions and even accommodating us in a bigger room when we arrived earlier than expected. The breakfast which you have on the rooftop completes the experience. Best hostel I’ve stayed in by far!

    We stayed in a private room with en suite Lovely and clean, great breakfast, great heavy duty wifi for facetiming the parents Located close to lots of bars and restaurants, and only several hundred metres from the major sites (hague, blue mosque, cistern) and a short walk to the grand bazaar, close to walk along the waterfront also. You get a great view of the water from the balcony.

    Hostel is in a great location in sultanhamet close to the main attractions. The rooms are super comfortable and air conditioned. The terrace is the only communal space and it’s nice, however guests are not allowed to use the kitchen which was a bit frustrating for us as we had food to cook.

    The hostel it self was good, not much atmosphere as most of the building is actually a hotel with mostly private rooms. Breakfast was nice and the view on the rooftop was beautiful.

    I booked this place thinking it’s a hostel. But unfortunately, it had no facilities. We wanted to make a simple cup of tea but hostel staff didn’t even allow us to Use their kitchen. No facilities for drying clothes. The entrance says Metropolis Restaurant and Bar but no food is served in their restaurant apart from a basic breakfast. Moreover hostel staff was so rude and impolite. When we checked in we wanted to pay by card and hostel staff asked for an 8% commission. Overall poor hostel world
