    Second Home hostel was a great place to stay! Memo and the team were so welcoming, helping with what to do/see in Istanbul plus dinner and breakfast were great too. Location is great also! It’s a must stay for your trip!

    Great owners and helpful staff! Can eat Turkish breakfast in the lobby, and location is less than 5 mins walk to restaurant and Mosques. Rooms are what you'd expect for hostel, but very clean and safe.

    My stay here was great. It truly did feel like a second home. The place was clean, and the staff was lovely. Everyone went out of their way to make me feel comfortable and happy. The rooftop was awesome and I had no shortage of recommendations of fun things to do from the staff. They even took me out one night to the Taksim district to experience the night life. Overall, I highly recommend staying here as a solo traveler or with friends.

    Second Home hostel was a great base for our stay in Istanbul. We were close to everything and the staff were lovely - gave us tea on arrival! We especially loved the rooftop terrace and the cats! A very chill vibe here and nice social people :)

    Fabulous

    A great hostel to stay at. But it must be said; if you are the type of person to experience and live in the more authentic Istanbul, this is not the perfect spot. Here you will stay in the touristique part of the city. We’d recommend to stay across the bridge close to Karaköy/Beyoğlu. Otherwise, great staff and we had a great stay. Tram station is close to the hostel, so travelling to Karaköy/Beyoğlu is not a problem either.

    Excellent, friendly and helpful staff. They put on events to help you meet other travellers, which is great if travelling solo. Lovely rooftop rest area with a fantastic view over the golden horn. Great location in the heart of the old city and good value. Only negative is that the bathrooms could do with a renovation.
