We stayed for 3 nights in the Nobel Hostel and it was an excellent choice. First thing to note, its ubication, just steps away from the Blue Mosque and from Hagia Sophia, they allow you to travel to the most important tourist spots. The staff is very helpful and friendly, they assisted us with many items. The accomodation was very... More

The receptionist was really nice and helpful. He showed us the map of the city and where the main attractions are. We bought at the reception desk a bus ticket (cheaper than if we would have done the booking on the website of the bus company!) to go to Cappadoccia and as we lost our booking ticket he made another...

I stayed here for 2 nights. When i arrived, the hostel staff (i think Mustafa is his name) was sleeping at the reception. Well, i came too early in the morning. I was allowed to leave my bags at the counter and was asked to come back later for check-in at 1 pm. I was asked to pay in full... More

The hostel is in a great location & had a view of the Blue Mosque from our balcony, but bear in mind this also means you will be disturbed by the call to prayers (which for me is part of the experience). The free wifi is great & the complimentary slippers are very useful. There was a terrible small of... More

We were only in Istanbul for one night and the Nobel Hostel was the right choice. Just a few minutes walk from all the historic sights. We loved having breakfast at the terrace with the Blue Mosque just in front of us! The staff was very friendly and spoke very good english. The room was clean, the bathroom not so... More

My sister, brother and I stayed in Nobel Hostel for 5 nights on our first visit to Istanbul. The accommodation was clean, comfortable and in a lovely area, two-minutes' walk from the historic sights of Sultanahmet Square. The staff were all very friendly and welcoming, and fortunately for us they spoke very good English. They asked about our trips every... More
