The major plus of this place is its location. Its located right by the Galata Tower and a short but steep walk away from the Galata Bridge and the Istiklal Street. Also, the staff is very friendly and gives good advice on places to go and also warns about tourist traps. The Wi-Fi coverage is good in the reception area... More

Our experience in this hostel was good. What we valued most was its stuff: nice and very attentive. They help us to get around in the city, the reccomended us places to go and they accomodated every request. The facilities are quite peculiar but the common area is really cozy and we met lots of new and interesting people. Therefore... More

Hostels are usually hit or miss. This one is a hit. So impressed by friendliness of staff-if you go, make sure you go on Gaye's tour of Balat, she is one of the most wonderful and interesting people I have ever met. Made so many friends here, cosy and warm atmosphere. Next time i come back to istanbul will definitely... More

This is long overdue, but I do wish to take the opportunity to share the time I had in early April and the great location for exploration and food. You will probably find a better hostel at a higher price, but lack such a central location. Facilities may be slightly cramped but maintained very clean With an early am arrival... More

So I used the airport transfer offered by the Hostel, although expensive, it's worth it because very few cabbies speak english properly and the location seemed a little out of place. When I got there the staff was great but my room wouldn't be ready for a few hours, so I used the time to visit the Galaa tower which... More

I've booked a lovely room with my girlfriend in one of the apartments down the road (so not in the hostel building itself). The room was very nice, with some real authentic details and a view over the Bosporus to dream of. You need to walk some stairs (8, because its on the top level) but once you are here,... More

We rented a private room at World House for a couple of nights this month at the end of our 9 - day tour of Turkey. We stayed in Sultanahmet at the beginning of our trip so decided to lodge in Beyoglu for the last few days in Istanbul and we chose World House. World House's location is great -... More
