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

My overall experience at this hostel was good. Employees are friendly and helpful. They speak English, which is a huge plus in Turkey. My only remarks would be on the sleep quality (bed not at all comfortable) and water cuts that happened twice during my one-week stay at the hostel.

Thank you to Pinar, Martin, Mustapha and all of the darling staff at World House. When I made my reservation I thought it was a homestay situation and initially when I realized it is a guest house I thought I would move. But the staff and accomodations are just first class. I stayed on for my entire 8 days in... More

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

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.)
