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

Chambers of the Boheme is an excellent place to stay while in Istanbul. It is very convenient to the airport bus, which is great if you have a lot of luggage, and also right in the thick of the lively Taksim Square and Istiklal Street. The rooms are nice, and I never had an issue with hot water in the... More

Very kind workers: they gave us a nicer and more expensive room than we has booked! The location is perfect for all activities and the place is very nice and cute. The bathroom was very clean and the common room downstairs very cosy.

Chambers of the Boheme is the ideal place to stay if you are just looking for a comfortable, and decent place to sleep over. The owner and reception staff are very nice and helpful. The hostel meets price and quality expectations. The rooms and bathrooms are basic but very decent. The location is perfect, 2 steps away from Istiklal Street!... More

I stayed at Chambers with a friend for a week, and we both had a great time. The location is perfect--in the heart of Istanbul night life and restaurants. The hostel owner and staff are all wonderful people with a great sense of humor. Good place to meet new friends and socialize in the common area or outside the hostel.... More

I was very impressed by the value I got for my money at this hostel. The location near Taksim was very useful for me because I had an early flight the next morning and had to take the Havatas bus. Plenty of choices nearby for dining and entertainment. The room was quite spacious and very well-decorated for a hostel, and... More

The hostel is in a great area, just around the corner from Istiklal Caddesi and Taksim Square. 5 minutes from the funicular that takes you to the tram into old town. All the buses leave from Taksim Sq too, including the Havatas airport bus. We stayed in the twin room which was light and airy with good size lock boxes.... More
