This is just one great hostel in Istanbul! Breakfast included, free wi-fi, best location you can imagine (a few steps away from the Galata tower), lovely coffee house where you can wait for friends while drinking delicious latte or home made lemonate. The staff is amazing, very friendly and helpful. Besides the very central location, the atmosphere is amazing in... More

I stayed here for five days this summer and everything about the place was great. The guys who run it are so helpful and eager to ensure you have a good time - if you are wanting a good night out talk to Deniz - he knows all the great spots and will take good care of you! The hostel... More

Very well located, clean and safe place. Good for backpackers, nothing to worry about. Shared space is a bit small, but anyway you need the place mainly for sleeping as you need to get out to discover Istanbul! ;) A little pricy compared to other Asian/Middle East cities though, around 20-25 Euros for the cheapest option (8-bed dormitory.)

This place is right in the centre of new town - short walk to the main street and its pretty cheap. The rooms were a little hot but they had good fans. It is a quiet place to get some sleep, and the breakfast was great. Kitchen staff work really hard, even doing your dishes for you. Probably the best... More

This is a good hostel. It's been highlighted in several newspapers and gets good reviews. I have a few slight issues though. Compared to our hostels in Tbilisi (Why Not? Tbilisi Legend Hostel) and Yerevan (Penthouse Hotel & Hostel), the guys at World House were slightly less helpful, and the location was more cramped (tiny shower cubicles, no real communal... More

This was perhaps one of the best hostels I've ever stayed in. Very clean, polite staff and good breakfast is also included. I stayed in the mixed dorm which was great and even more importantly the showers and toilets were all very clean. The hostel is located in the centre of Karakoy and is next to the Galata tower and...

My sister and I stayed in a private room at this hostel, so I can't speak to the shared dorm facilities. The room was simple and clean. The staff was attentive, always willing to help their guests by booking tours and suggesting restaurants. The breakfast was amazing every day with home made jam and Turkish tea. The common area is...
