Spent 9 nights in the hostel with three friends in a four person room. Rooms were spacious for a hostel, with lockers for belongings and turn down service every night. Ahmet was a fantastic host, providing excellent recommendations throughout our stay and he also will cook you breakfast upon request (both delicious and cheap). The hostel is only half a... More

Spent a night here in one of the 4-bed female dorms. The particular room I had (2nd floor, room E) had 1 bunk bed and 2 singles. Overlooked the noisy sidestreet (cafes/bars) - with the windows shut (and AC on) getting some shut eye isn't a problem. The manager was helpful with arranging airport taxis and storing luggage. Overall average... More

Absolutely fantastic location right off istiklal. Ahmet was very helpful in planning our four day stay. We were also upgraded from the dorm to a private room for no charge! Unbeatable location and fantastic price.

I literally had no idea which hostel to book when I was researching Istanbul because there was so many options! In the end I chose this place and I'm glad I did! The atmosphere wasn't the best in the hostel, I barely spoke to anyone because there wasn't really a common area but the rooms were really good and the... More

Have just got back from a 4 day trip to Istanbul and Chambers of the Boheme was a fantastic place to stay. It is very central to the nightlife and shopping area where you can find quirky and cool cafes and bars. On arrival, Ahmet the owner greeted us in reception. He was very informative and friendly and made our... More

I stayed 2 nights here in a 6 bed dorm. The price was reasonable and seems to match the prices of the other hostels in Istanbul. This hostel was handy for me since I was flying out after the 2nd day and was near the airport bus to Istanbul's (Asian side) airport. The owner has had this hostel for several... More

I spent 3 nights at this hostel in May 2014. Ahmet, the owner of the establishment is extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms are spacious and clean. The hostel itself is located just off Istikal Caddesi which is the main shopping street in the Beyoglu area - walking distance from most places. When there, be sure to try Ahmet's local... More

Located in the heart of Taksim where EVERYTHING is.... The man in charge upgraded my room to a private one. Very clean, cozy and quiet. Nightlife and sights are walking distance. Great wi-fi connection. Affordable and comfortable!

I was incredibly impressed with my stay at Chambers of the Boheme. The location, just off the bustling Istikal, is incredibly convenient in Istanbul. In the evenings, it's easy to relax in one of Istikal's alleys with a coffee or a hookah and listen to street musicians as they pass. It is within walking distance of Galata Tower and 5... More

If you want to shop and go clubbing, this is the place for you! It's right on the busy pedestrian mall by Taksim Square, so there are plenty of shops (both Western and Turkish), restaurants, and clubs to peruse. If you want something near the historical stuff, I recommend you stay in the old section of Istanbul. I had to... More
