Great location, close to all of the main sites like the blue mosque, topkapi palace etc. The rooms were nice and clean, as were the bathrooms. There was a great atmosphere and the staff were so helpful and made our trip very entertaining. Would definitely recommend others to stay there.

I stayed only two nights in this hostel. The rooms were clean, the bar/restaurant outside was great to chill and enjoy Shisha. The only setback is the leaking shower head and the squeaky beds. Otherwise I would defiantly recommend this place as its a value price for location.

Perfect location, attentive staff, good breakfast (included), affordable price. This place made my stay in Istanbul a memorable one. The two important details that make it unprotect are he super slow wifi and how loud the music is at night. You may have trouble sleeping.

The hostel is really good for budget travellers but the music from the bar is very loud. It was good that breakfast was included. The location of the hostel is excellent because it is close to Hagia Sophia and the Blue Mosque. The website said that towels are included but that was only for the private rooms (we had a... More

I have been traveling for the last 2 months and the restaurant/bar staff are the best I've encountered so far. Very friendly and happy to give you advice on anything you need. I wish I remembered their names to give them a proper thank you!! Two of the staff in particular treated me, my boyfriend and sister like old friends.... More

The service is on top of it. The location is great, right next to major monuments. There's a good vibe, food, drinks, music, people. Just an overall great time. A small treasure of a big city. Totally recommend it.

Hoping I can change rooms. On the second floor and I can hear in the hallway and through the windows and Bose noise canceling headphones. No reviews mentioned anything?!?! This sucks. I want to sleep.

Hi there, Thank you for your review. First of all I am really sorry about your bad experience with us. If you would let the reception know about your problem the night you have stayed (noisy music) they could change your room or decreased your volume of noisy music. We pay attention on this issue very much as management. Probably... More
