Convenient location to main attractions in Istanbul. Rooms are clean, well kept, but very simple. Bunks with pillows and thin blanket. Free lockers for your convenience. Free breakfast if you are awake early.

We booked a room for three persons with own bath and got a really good accomodation near Hagia Sophia in a street with many restaurants and bars. The hostel was clean, staff was friendly. The breakfast was o.k., you get free tea and coffee until 3 pm. Negative was the slow WiFi and the toilet flushes which do not work... More

If you search for a great location to stay in the center of Istanbul, then I can really recommend this hostel to you. It's not only very close to the main attractions like Haga Sophia, Blue Mosque, Tolcapi Palace, Hippodrom, etc. (all to reach within 5 minutes by foot) but it is also well connected to their public transport system....

This hostel has a great location it is very near to the blue mosque! The prices in dorms are quite good considering that. Also, the breakfast was nice. The bad thing of this hostel is that it lacks a common area to hang out, meet travellers or read a book. Also, the beds were in a pretty bad shape. The... More

This youth hostel is very well placed. 2 minutes to Sophia, 5 minutes to blue mosque. The tram is at 5 minutes too. Regarding the room, they are clean like bathroom and toilets. The service is very good, especially Enes who is now a very good friend. The night, there is always party in the street. I really recommend this... More

Sultan's a big, fairly impersonal hostel in the absolute heart of tourist central, Istanbul. But it's dorm rooms are head and shoulders above many other hostels in the area, having lots of space, good beds, clean, modern bathrooms and good a/c, an absolute blessing in the summer's heat. Free wi-fi works everywhere, and the staff were reasonably friendly, allowing free... More

Looking for a nice, clean, fun hostel in Istanbul? This is it! Had a lot of fun hanging around, and it was all clean and there was fine breakfast included. Walking distance from the famous Blue Mosque. ( You should check your mattress before you go to sleep, because some where better then others)

The hostel is cheap, clean, safe, and 3 blocks away from major tourist attractions. The staff was super friendly, and the internet was fast. It was really easy to meet other travelers in the hostel just by hanging out outside with a nargile. I would absolutely recommend it!!

We came to this hostel with a big group, but that was no problem at all. The staff was friendly and they took care of anything. The price is cheap, but the service, hostel and breakfast are great. If you want a good and clean hostel for a cheap price in a nice part of Istanbul, this is the one... More
