    Absolutely incredible. This was my second time here and it was even better than the first time. The staff truly made it feel like home. Charmaine was exceptionally good at breaking the ice between travelers. Kudis, Onur, Can, Mimi and Memo were also wonderful and made sure there was a welcoming face at reception 24/7. You can book activities through the hostel, which makes things extra convenient. The hostel is safe and comfortable and there's several spaces to relax and socialize on a lazy day.

    Really great place. Location, cleanliness were all top notch. What really sets this place apart is the staff though! Memo and Seyf are really kind and helpful. They were able to help arrange on time transport to the airport, they took care of my bags when I arrived early, and even arranged for a Covid PCR test for travel. Everything was super easy and on time. When I'm back in Istanbul, will definitely stay again.

    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

    Had a great time here. Memo and John are excellent hosts and the place has a really welcoming atmosphere. The location is good as well because you're close to the metro station, ferry station and old town.

    Nice place, very close to the main attractions! The rooms are a bit small but its ok! Cleanliness was good! The kitchen is well equiped but they charge 1 euro to use it... The terrace had potential, it was winter when I visited so it wasnt in a good condition at all, but I bet that during summer it must be amazing (hopefully)!! Also there are cats everywhere! I'm ok but if you have allergies avoid sitting in the "loby" area and the terrace. Very good overall!

    We loved our stay at Second Home! It’s in a great location and easy to get to all the main tourist sites. Everyone was very helpful and provided us with everything we needed during our stay. I would definitely recommend staying here as it was such good value for what we paid.
