    If you are in Istanbul STAY AT this hostel! The staff are very very friendly and helpful, the breakfast and dinners are amazing. Very social and comfortable atmosphere.. close to all the main sights; easy to get around on foot. Rooms are clean and there is an awesome rooftop to relax with other guests! I really enjoyed my stay here and highly recommend:)

    Second home suites was one the best places I’ve stayed in terms of value for money and location. It’s an absolute bargain, the rooms and amenities are perfect and comfortable, with everything you need, and friendly staff to give you advice and show you around the city. The accomodation is located in an awesome spot, walking distance to tourist attractions, the Bosphorus, and lots of good cafes and restaurants. The walk to the nightlife area only takes about 15 minutes too! 10/10 from me.

    The best hostel i've been in. The location is very good, not in center but you can arrive walking everywhere and also the metro and tram are almost in front of hostel. The ambience was incredible, all the people talk to each other, you really feel that is house, maybe with a lot of brothers instead of mom and dad. I definetely will return to Istanbul and will stay in the same hostel.

    If you're low maintenance and need a place to stay with no frills on the cheap, this is for you. The owner is great and will help you with anything from dinner suggestions, metro info, and can arrange shuttles to both airports. Everyone hangs out in the common area and is so friendly. I really did feel like I was at home here. I liked the vibe of a mom and pop owned business however if the bathrooms were more cleanly I would have been more comfortable. For the price, you really can't beat it!

    The hostel stays in a great location, very easy to find. I just expected a little bit more cleanliness. Overall, it's worth the money I paid.
