Perfect location for exploring Istanbul. Two mins walk from the Blue Mosque and surrounding attractions. Brilliantly clean, good wifi (sometimes hard to come by in other hostels) and a terrace with an amazing view of the Bosphorous. Can highly recommend

The rooms are extremely small with no storage space at all and the people who work there are not very helpful at all. I asked the receptionist what they served for breakfast and without even looking up from his computer, he mumbled "Everything." This was very clearly not true because the next morning, we realized that they did not even... More

Maybe coming from Uzbekistan made this hostel seem like a gift from heaven. I had requested a 4 dorm room with a window that opened, little knowing I would have a cozy room with a view of the Marmara. Better to pay a few $ more and not sleep in the basement. The hot water was plentiful and the pressure... More

It was a very clean hostel with a unique turkish breakfast. The location was perfect, you're within minutes of the main sites of Sultanahmet and reasonable walking distance to the Grand Bazaar and ferry docks. The tram is also very close with is convenient when getting to the airport.

Was looking for accommodation in close proximity to the old city at a reasonable price. The Antique Hostel is literally three minutes slow walk to the Blue Mosque and all the great attractions. The room was comfortable, heated and had its own ensuite. Was a bit suspicious of the toilet and shower together but the room dried quickly and it... More

The staff isn't the friendliest, but they complied with all of out requests immediately. The room was clean, and was cleaned half way through our stay (we stayed 4 days total) which was sufficient. The bathroom towels were included (we had to ask for them) and they changed them for fresh ones after two days for no extra charge. The... More

Everything around this hostel is walkable and I felt safe during my time here. I would highly prefer staying here again in my next trip. Staff was also nice and helpful and breakfast was authentic turkish and filling. There is a nice sea view of bosphorus and marmara from hostel where you can see Asian side and it looks splendid...

A beautiful cozy hostel very much in the heart of sultanahmed. Walkaway distance to all important tourist places in istanbul. Stayed there along with a friend for 3 nights and had a wonderful experience. Very friendly hosts and good cosy beds... Although the internet would not work very well. I would recommend it to all my friends arriving to istanbul.
