    The place is right in the heart of Istanbul. It’s literally some steps away from Galata Tower. The interior of the hostel is amazing. Wifi, a little patchy sometimes, but sustainable. Enjoyed my time here. Recommend !

    I had a nice stay at the hostel. It's very close to galata and people are around until very late at night in the area. The rooms were clean and last night I had the room for myself as everyone left. There was plenty of space in the room and the window had a view to galata tower. There was only very small bathroom in the hall but It was almost never occupy. No really common areas in the hostal. Nice staff.

    Located in the same spot as a cute coffee shop. There’s a little courtyard that’s really nice to sit and relax in. The dorms didn’t have any locks or passcodes or anything, and with traffic coming into the coffee shop and courtyard, it’d be pretty easy for someone to walk in upstairs. Dorms had lockers so make sure you bring a lock but the location in Taksim was great. Bathrooms and shower were kinda gross, beds were fine

    The Hostel is super well located. Nice in general. You can access it from the bar entrance and you can join the bar lounge but real common spaces are missing. It'squite difficult to meet people from other rooms and chat. You always find someone dealing with the reception but you have to look for them at the bar sometime. Common bathrooms from the dorms are not the best in terms of dimensions and cleaning but you have all what you need.

    After booking extra nights the hostelstaff tried to put the price up higher than it was on the website. I felt like I didn't get a fair price. They asked me to pay 100 lira for one night, than "for me", "because it was me" they changed the price to 60 and than suddenly the price had to be changed back to 70. It seems the moral standards of the hostelstaff were a bit off and that didn't give me the feeling I want in a Hostel. Be honest. Location etc. is great.
