Really nice and pleasant stay at Nobel! The location was beyond amazing! I've been to Istanbul a number of times and the view from their terrace is by far the best in the Sultanahmet! Definitely would stay here again!

It was winter in Istanbul and there was snow! But I felt really comfortable staying in this hostel and the breakfast was way more than I was expecting. If you are looking for a nice place to stay I really recommens this place to stay.

Maybe a little quiet if you are with friends and looking for a party hostel vibe but definitely great for families or couples. The people working in the reception are really nice and helpful and the included breakfast is also great. Location is fantastic, two minutes from Aya Sofia and Sultanahmed.

My family of 4 stayed at here for a quick trip through Istanbul. The location can't be beat for the price. We had a view of the Blue Mosque from our window (and from the rooftop). Most of the major sites are within easy walking distance. The people at the hostel were extremely helpful for all of our needs and... More

Good rooms, nice breakfast, great atmosphere and, quite important too - low prices. Also you have tram 5 minutes walk away and most memorable sights close by. And of course don't forget the roof veranda with comfortable seats - drink wine with your friends and enjoy a wonderful view of the city and Bosporus.

Small and cosy hostel in the heart of sultanamhet. My room (6 dorm) has a wonderful view to blue mosque and to the bosfor. Very nice staff. Very clean. Very comfy beds. The only negative point was that my room was at last floor, but the view made the compensation.,,,

This was the second time I stayed at Nobel Hostel, and will not easily stay in different hostel when visiting Istanbul in the future. This hostel has an unbeatable location, near the Blue Mosque, the Aya Sofia, Topkapi, Grand Bazaar etc. The staff are the friendliest people and eager to help you with anything and everything.

As a traveler, I choose Nobel Hostel because of its unbeatable location, near to the Blue Mosque and its affordable price. The boss and staffs are very friendly and kind indeed. Because I changed to go to Capadocia, the boss allowed me to cancel my booking without penalty, as he is so considerate to a traveler on budget. I would... More
