    It was an amazing spot, the staff (especially the front desk lady from Berlin) was super thoughtful/welcoming and made my stay one of the best experiences ever. Would definitely recommend to anyone, and let’s not forget the great location you’re getting with the price; it’s a win-win situation! 10/10

    I ended up staying here 4 nights because I liked it so much. It's a haven in a very busy part of Istanbul. Great location (just off Taksim) and great value. The kitchen/common area is a really homely place to hang out. Thanks again to Melek & Co. For their hospitality. See you next time! Highly recommended.

    Amazing experience I had for the 2 nights I spent there, the place is very decent for the value of what I paid, the location was just perfect for my trip, although the lockers had no keys yet I felt safe and had no troubles, The kitchen area is so clean and cozy. As for the staff I met with Nourallah he is very nice and helpful, can’t thank him enough for the great hospitality. I live in yalova Turkey but now this hostel is my home in Istanbul. Thank you

    It was not busy when I was there (despite the bank holiday) and I had the whole dorm room to myself :) An early check-in was possible (even though hostel world asked to choose from 14:00). The staff were nice and they offered help carrying my luggage upstairs (beware of a typical narrow staircase if you happen to be up).

    Great location, 5 minutes from Taksim, 5 minutes from busy İstiklal street. There are lots of restaurant, corner stores, pubs and there’s even a laundrymat less than 1 minute walk. The Hostel is quiet which was perfect for me, just walk 5 minutes and you’re in the middle of all the crazyness.

    Nice and helpful staff. Toilets and kitchen were clean. Hostel is just a bit small so maybe not the best for a sociable atmosphere. I had an issue with the bunk beds, no stair to climb to the top bed, and they are very loose that any movement would move both beds.

    Pretty good hostel. They jumped up the price to 100 lira each for the soccer though which was excessive. If you're coming after a late flight don't bother though as we had to wait for an hour for a person staying to let us in. This was not fun after a 15 hour flight! We had emailed beforehand to confirm our late arrival was ok too.
