Property Description


Lola Backpackers Hostel is a brand new hostel started by a local backpacker who is devoted to creating a backpacker-friendly environment. Our priority is to provide backpackers and travelers on a budget with a warm and comfortable atmosphere. If your purpose is not traveling or you are looking for something fancy, please look elsewhere. Guests here are not just a number and you might feel like you're staying in a shared flat while still having your privacy. The vision for this hostel is to become a melting pot of different cultures and a second home for travelers alike to share old stories and create new experiences!

Located in a quiet street in the bustling Galata area, you can experience Istanbul through its winding alleyways filled with little stores, cafes, and plenty of amazing eateries just a short walk away. The surrounding streets are filled with workshops, but we're just a few steps away from the main streets that follow along the seaside, while also being just a five-minute walk from Galata tower and nearby metro and ferry stations. We will be happy to help you find your way through Istanbul and share its charms and beauty. Dont be afraid to ask for help! :)

**This hostel currently is still on its way to becoming complete so there might be some maintenance and renovation work during your stay.
