Property Description

Welcome to Planet Paprika Hostel, where you can experience the Turkish hospitality at the heart of Istanbul.

Our hostel is providing the cozy, friendly and clean place to stay. We are not a big , impersonal hulk hostel. We value the independent travelers and we are against any kind of discrimination. So come here to be a citizen of Planet Paprika.


1. Location

Planet Paprika Hostel is conveniently located at Taksim square. We are the closest hostel to Taksim square and Taksim metro station , just a few steps away from Istiklal Street, the most happening place in Istanbul.

At Taksim you can have a better chance to mingle with the local, not with a tourist. And after the exhausting night out, you dont need to worry about the transportation to your hostel. We are right here to serve you.

We are also closer to old Istanbul; the touristic peninsula and big touristic spots. Grand Bazaar, Spice Bazaar, Blue Mosque, St. Sophia and Topkapı Palace. You can walk to Sultan Ahmet or you can take a metro with tram. We prefer walking. Since it takes only 30 mintutes from here to Eminn and a bit more to Sultan Ahmet on foot. On the way to old town you can visit Cite de Pera , Nevizade , Galata Tower, Galata Bridge , fish market ,Yeni Mosque, historical Sirkeci train Station, and so on. Yes. Everything you want to visit in Istanbul is on the way to Sultan Ahmet from our hostel.
And Taksim Square is the transportation hub in Istanbul, so you can visit almost everywhere without any worry.

    Mr. Paprika is super flexible and kind person!!! Location good and room is pretty clean, front door is automatically locked. We booked dormitory for 10 euro per person but he gave us a private room with attached bathroom, kitchen, fridge, laundry machine and balcony. He gave us bed sheets and bath towel. Our bus time was 9 pm and when we asked about check out time, he said no problem, stay until 9, without any extra charge! So we get to use the room and shower before we leave.

    Our stay in the hostel was really short as we had in total 3 days to visit Istanbul. The location is perfect, just behind Taksim square. The hostel had moved in an older building in front of the old one, and it was a bit hard to find; but we got help from the owner of the hostel. He was very caring, friendly and of great company indeed :) The 6 beds room where we stayed was an all-in-one bed, kitchen and bathroom apartment. Maybe this would need some improvement. We enjoyed our time there!
