    After so many bunk beds, I had forgotten what a comfortable bed feels like. -- The only hostel I've ever been in where sleeping in is a real temptation. And the location was unbelievable; so close to a Metro station and in the middle of everything. AND the proprietor arranged the taxi when I left. -- For that alone Windrose rates a 10. I can't think of one negative thing to say about the place.

    This hostel is excellent. I have some very minor criticisms from the point of view of a man in his 70s. The positives first. The beds in our private room were firm and comfy. The room was clean a d not too small. The shared bathroom was clean and the water was hot. All the staff were helpful and we felt welcome. The locality near transport to Sultanahmet and very close to Taxims nightlife and small good value cafes. Now some minor problems. The stairs are steep. The loo seat was lose. Lovely

    It was great! Good place for good money. Perfect if you come to Istanbul for exploring and not going to stay in your room during the day :) I love Cihangir so the hostel’s location was perfect to me

    The hostel was fine, my private room was cozy but fairly empty. The bathrooms were also okay. The location was the best part, as I could easily reach all the best locations in no time, while being in a very lively and cool neighborhood with lots of bars and restaurants. The staff was friendly and helpful. The only thing that I felt was missing was the atmosphere, as there was no socializing going on (also due to how the hostel is built, since there was no real "lounge" space)

    + в номере с 4 кроватями кровати не двухъярусные, достаточно удобные + есть общая зона с кухней + есть локеры, замок нужен свой + расположение на тихой улице - полотенца под депозит 2 евро - комната не запирается, дверь страшно скрепит - туалет с душем совмещены, в наличии 1 штука на этаже - окна в комнате с видом на окна другого здания, поэтому всегда зашторены, в комнате мрачно - отсутсвие какой-либо шумоизоляции Кажется, что в хостеле я жила одна, поэтому сильного дискомфорта не испытала...
