This hotel/hostel has an incredible location from all the historic landmarks. The staff is very friendly and I emphasize VERY because they really are especially with women. But still it was a very pleasant experience and this was my second time in this hotel. The cafes and restaurants around will surely keep you busy.

Location and value for money was fantastic, walking distance to the Blue Mosque and museums, also a lovely breakfast. My only problem was that on my last night the staff took my linen away as well as everything else that had been on my bed, thinking that I had left (despite the fact that I had paid for that night...

The room we had didn't have a door but we still felt very safe. The bathroom wasn't very clean and leaked a bit but overall the location and service (as well as free breakfast) made up for that. The breakfast was really good! And the staff were very friendly and charismatic

We had a fantastic time at New Backpackers, the staff were super helpful and really attentive, the dorm was clean and the breakfast yum. The dorm does get a bit of sound from outside so headphones / ear plugs might be a good idea if youre a light sleeper.

This place was awesome! The staff and atmosphere defiantly made up for the dorm we slept in (the basement, apparently private rooms were way nicer) but the beds were comfortable! The music from the street was very loud, nothing earphones didn't fix though. Breakfast was a little average, but the dinners were affordable and so good! Try the hummus! Flat... More

Good breakfast included in the price. Every time we had tee or coffee it was for free. They have a restaurant called Siva and they serve... More

I spend 6 days at Siva. (they have a back packers too) there is no other restaurant like this - The staff and owner are beyond kind. They make such an effort to make it a personal visit. I saw the same people arriving over and over to eat at Siva. There is a reason for that - the service... More
