    We had a very comfortable and enjoyable staff. Perfectly located hostel and really friendly, relaxed atmosphere. Staff went out of their way to make us feel at home and Dogukan in particular was super helpful!

    Great beds. Also, the night manager insisted I wake him up at 6am (I needed to catch a taxi) so he could call the reliable taxi company for me. That's going beyond ! Good location near the nightlife. This is a preferable location to the Sultanimet side.

    My stay was great, I sincerely appreciate the staff being helpful and taking the time to listen to my needs. Dogukan was very helpful and friendly and I appreciate all of his help. The facilities were nice, however, the wifi was very spotty and not necessarily the most reliable. The cleanliness for me was a big deal. The bathrooms were not great, I think they could use more cleaning throughout the day. Overall it's a great hostel at a great location. Istanbul is fantastic

    They claimed the bathrooms are cleaned multiple times a day but there was shaven hair all over the bathroom on my floor for more than half a day. Other than that, the place is nice and has a good atmosphere, no doubt because it’s in a prime location just steps away from Galata Tower!

    Booked a private single room. Decently sized room and clean as well. But the main light wasn't working in the room. I had to spend 2 days and 2 nights only under a dim table lamp. On asking the staff to get it fixed, the response was very cold and non helpful. He just shrugged it away and pretended that nothing could be done. This was a huge turnoff. Breakfast was standard eggs, bread, butter, jam. Tea, coffee, tomatoes, cucumbers and olives. That's it, I think it could have been far Better.

    I got a bit disappointed. Reading all this great reviews about the hostel beforehand, I expected a nice, sociable hostel with great atmosphere. Breakfast and location was super, but sharing only one dirty toilet on an entire floor was a bit poor. The hostel is ok if you wanna stay only for a few days.

    You need to work on your organization and please fix the fan and the A/C. Since it’s located in an active street, it’s difficult to fall asleep with all the noise!
