Istanbul was my first of many stops and I was a little nervous, but Chambers of the Boheme was easy to find and very accommodation. They let me check in straight away, helped me get a metro card, told me where to get money out, gave me a map, made me coffee and showed me some good restaurants in the... More

My friend's and I stayed here for 5 nights. The location is perfect. Close to Taksim, transport easily accessible, just of Istiklal, which is also great for night life. Ahmed and his staff are truly the most wonderful people. Great breakfast. Everything you need. I would really recommend anyone to stay here.

My friend and I stayed here 5 days april 2015. Very helpful and friendly staff who have good advice for you, if you need it. Good beds and, important, your own individual locker to store your backpack in when you enjoy the city. The prices are very reasonable as well. Highly recommended backpacker option in this city and very close... More

This hostel is close to Taksim square which is close to the havatas bus terminal. Just up from the busy shopping street this quaint hostel had the friendliest man in all of Istanbul. Ahmet went out of his way to ensure every single one of his guests were looked after and even chased us down the street to return a... More

We had a wonderful stay at Chambers of the Boheme. It was easy to get to from the airport and in a great location just off a busy, lively road right near Taksim Square with good connections to the metro and trams. The best part about the hostel though was not its great location but was in fact the staff!... More

Really nice and neat hostel located just between Taksim Square and Isticlar. Staff really friendly and helpful, and the hostel is calm and quiet. Rooms were really clean and the owner will whip you up an awesome breakfast for a few lira.

Great location, 7-8 minutes walking from airport busses, next to busy Istiklal St. but in a quiet side street. Ahmet pampers his quests , he brought me to supermarket to buy typical Turkish tea and spices. Beds are comfortable , good coffee and breakfast at reasonable prices . Ask for advice on best buffet places in surrounding side streets. Free... More

This hostel was really great. We went here with a group of students. We could do breakfast whenever we wanted and the manager gave us the breakfast we wanted. The manager was also really helpful with walking with us to busses and other places. When a few of our members had to go back earlier, he annulated the rooms with... More

Good showers (in our room atleast) and a decent common area to hang out in. The staff could've been a little more active but they usually had some good advice when I asked. Our room was a little cold.

I picked this place randomly when I was in Canada and knew that when I got to Istanbul I didn't want to hunt for a hostel. It's clean and Ahmet is a nice guy. He watches out for his guests and is friendly. I'd recommend staying here to anyone. The location is perfect.
