I was charged 100t/l and it was the worst place I ever stayed in and my room was ensuite so God help the rest. It had two single beds, no chair, wardrobe and that was it. The rug was not hoovered and I did not dare look under the bed. The beds were uncomfortable. It was right behind reception and... More

It was expensive. It was terribly conditioned. It was unclean. Combined above, it was not a good place for one expects more even for a backpacker. The only good thing was, it was so close to the Blue Mosque!

That was the first time I stayed in the Hostel, maybe that was a good place but for me it was very bad place. Because I stayed everytime in the Hotel, and I get used it, after those things when I go a Hostel, I see the difference. But thank you for everyone at there.

Stayed at Sinbad hostel twice - 2006 and 2007. Rooms weren't nice, simple 6 bed dormitory with almost no equipment. Bathroom was in terrible condition, only cold water. OK, now some warm words... hostel is situated in perfect location, just a few steps from Blue Mosque. Althought conditions weren't good at all, I must say I quite like my stay... More

So we stayed in the Sinbad Hostel for 3 nights. Let's start with the good things: The breakfast is good, we didn't got an egg anywhere else and the view from the terrace was nice. We slept in a dorm and the size of the room was okay. What we didn't like: The WC is soo narrow. It was nearly... More

This place was awful! Noisy and busy and unfriendly. The guy who served us when we arrived was such a jerk (we would have walked out but everywhere was full), and we genuinely thought he might have been drunk (didn't answer our questions properly, laughed at us when we asked what time was checkout). My bed had dirt in it... More

But, unfortunately i came back in 2011 and all toilets were disgusting. I just didn't want to take a shower or enter any toilet in any floor. Breakfast is taken... More

It is located near Blue Mosque just walking from 5 minute. You can make your travel within only 10 minute around from here. This is old hostel, but clean enough : you should know that this hostel is 10 years old and 10 euro per one night. Despite of that, air conditioner and heater is furnished, 24 hour hot shower...
