This was my first time visiting Istanbul, I was going as a woman solo traveller. I chose to stay in one of its dorms, and very happy I did. Staff are very nice and helpful. It can be a bit noisy at night since they have the restaurant open until 2am, but it did not bother me at all. They... More

Recent trip to Istanbul was so wonderful made only more fabulous with the wonderful accommodations and staff at the Sultan Hostel. The rooms were clean and inviting after a busy day of site seeing. The food and drinks served at the restaurant were reasonably priced too. Would recommend a stay and dinning at the Sultan Hostel.Thank for your all help... More

I have been at many places in Istanbul, but this is one of the best. The rooms are nice and clean. The staff is kind and wants to help you always. The location is perfect, only a 2 minut walk to the Blue Mosque and other touristical places. The hostel is above a nice pub, with good music, food and... More

We dropped into the sultan for a night cap (beer and raki) and a plate of fruit. Prices were ok for the area and service was good, cant comment on the food though, but seemed (to our surprise) to be plenty of locals tucking in, considering it looks pretty touristy.

I know I'm reviewing this very late but this place deserves a review. I was traveling Eastern Europe solo, stayed here when I was sick, the pretty much brought me back to life. Tip the staff, it truly is generous and they deserve it. The hostel overall is very clean. And the food is amazing. Also there is always wifi!!!!!

My daughter and I stayed here for 3 nights in Feb. Huge snowstorm hit Istanbul. The staff was incredibly helpful with providing a parking space and helping us deal with the snowstorm. Very friendly staff and the price is great. Some of the people staying there were a bit noisy, but the neighborhood is fanstastic.

In a nice, convenient place, close to the attractions and tramway. Accommodation wise, good bed and room, and you get to meet other travelers (usually solo), so you don't really feel alienated. The place could do with more proper shower facilities, otherwise, good value for money.

It not even look like a hostel... Exeption for the shared bath and shared toilet, but the room are amazing. A king bed just for me and they have a pub and restaurant just down the stairs. It is not expensive and the most important: location: in the middle of the Sultanahmed close to all the beauties in the city.... More

A nice cheap hostel with a cool vibe. Good enough that other travelers from different hostels/hotels hang out here. Location is prime to see historical Istanbul and easily get to Taksim for night life. Thank you Enes for your help and recommendations around town. It was a lot of fun going out to your recommended bars/clubs in Taksim! I would... More
