    It was a great stay. I stayed even longer.. like a week. Staff made GOOD TASTY FOOD and were knowledgeable. Very helpful and friendly. Only minus is that there is no lift but that turned out to be a positive because you need a workout with all the food you are about to eat. Would definitely be back in the summer

    Where do I begin with how happy I am with my stay at second home hostel? To begin with Memo made us feel welcome before we even arrived. Before I booked I emailed the facility to ask questions about how to get there. Memo responded right away with detailed info on the options. Once we arrived to the hostel we were greeted with a customary cup of tea. The private en suite room was beautiful and clean! Room was cozy with nice sheets and comfortable bed. Great location and would highly recommend!

    A really wonderful stay here - I was a little nervous about travelling to Turkey for my first time on my own, especially as a female, however I instantly felt at ease when arriving at this hostel. Kind and attentive staff, always eager to help - giving lots of suggestions about the many things to do in Istanbul. The hostel is very well maintained; fresh sheets, clean bathroom & kitchen. Good & cheap breakfast. Let's just say I will definetly be returning! :)

    Had a great stay at Second Home Suites - I will be sure to return one day! Zach and other staff went absolutely above and beyond to accommodate & help me (booking restaurants, taxi's, staying up late to let me in, helping me with parking and the best places to visit, and just staying up to connect and chat with me about the culture etc). I booked a private room and it was comfortable, clean, quiet. The showers were great and I felt safe & looked after. Atmosphere was quieter due to covid.

    We had a pleasant stay until the last night where a member of staff accessed my personal information from the booking to text me to ask for my friends number. This was beyond unprofessional and a complete breach of confidentiality and made myself and my two friends extremely uncomfortable
