Stayed here for a week. 5-10 minutes from the Blue Mosque, Ayasofia, and the Metro station. It was very convenient. There are convenience stores and a nice cafe right off the block, where I would grab a Turkish coffee every day before heading out. Several touristy restaurants nearby for convenient dining if you need. The breakfast in the Hostel is... More

My friends and I spent three nights at the Big Apple. The staff were superb; they were eager to help and gave us some great places to check up in the city. Also, the breakfast was delicious. I would have paid double what I did to stay there.
