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.

This little hostel is perfectly located in the heart of Sultanahmet, few steps away from Topikapi palace, Blue Mosque and Aya Sophia. It is pretty basic but very well isolated, we did not hear any noise from the outside. It has a nice bar and outside sitting. Perfect for budget traveling.

Hostel in a great location, not far from the blue mosque. Very clean, well looked after. Hosts friendly and helpful. Free wifi. Towels/bedding included as well. Oh they have a bit of a breakfast included too. Only downside for us was the bar downstairs was very noisy! but thats hostel life. Earplugs required eh!

we stayed here for 2 nights before attending the Gallipoli Anzac service. The service and food were great and very reasonable. Atmosphere was great, walking distance to main attractions. A little hard to find in a taxi due to one way streets.

The breakfast was good and the staff were really helpful, friendly and over the week we were sad to leave. The rooms were some of the cleanest hostels ive stayed in and... More

The staff were all extremely helpful. There was always so much going on so being by myself, it was so easy to make friends and have so much fun. The wi-fi was easily accessible and the general conditions of the rooms/entire place were clean and well kept.
